in which i wear a lot of blue and squint

(dress: Target [like the pink one worn here], wedges: Marshalls, necklace: street market in Krakow, Poland, ring: Target)
Outfit pictures, if they happen at all, are after a long day at work and normally while Chris is holding a wiggling twelve month old. 
It’s not glamorous.  It takes about one minute total and is often done while something is burning on the stove.  In that last picture I’m laughing because my dog is standing next to Chris chowing down on his own poop.
That’s just how we do it.
So what I didn’t realize until getting home the afternoon of wearing this dress is that it is too short.  There was a moment in front of the mirror before I left that morning where I wasn’t sure, but I decided I was just being paranoid.
I was wrong.
Which sucks for a number of reasons, but one of them is that so many of the dresses I wore this winter with tights or leggings can’t be worn in the summer because they are too short for bare legs.  So what I thought was a pretty sufficient amount of dresses in my wardrobe has dwindled down immensely. 
Damn you, tallness.
On the plus side, I have this dress in a size larger (in pink) so I’m hoping that one is longer.

    I really enjoyed your post on Our Reflection today! I think by not trying to inspire in a false way, you inspired in a true way!
