I had this dress on about 15 minutes when I realized why I never wear it to work. It magically unbuttons itself all. the. time. Luckily I wore a black slip thing underneath it because it’s a little see-through so when the buttons popped open at least nothing was seen. Looks like I should have walked around in it at the store for 10 minutes longer before I bought it. Or just remembered that I need to size up on the button-up dresses to make way for my giant cans! Ha.
I love the grid pattern of this dress. It’s not really stripes, and it’s not really plaid, but somewhere in between. I decided to contrast all the squares with some dots on my legs! It was actually my intention to not wear black and white with a pop of color and this dress is actually the very definition of this. I give up! I love it too much.
In other news, this month for me has been all about baking. It’s not something that I’ve cared for in the past, because I am more of an “oh, I’ll throw some of this in there, and how about some of this?” person when it comes to cooking, and I feel like with baking that’s a game changer and you end up with flat, hard cookies. BUT, it’s kind of refreshing to measure everything out and I’m finding places where you can add a little spontaneity. Last night I made these yummy Salted Caramel Mocha Brownie Cups (although I didn’t make the frosting. I just used the frosting the brownie mix came with and added some caramel on top with some sea salt.) Anyway, I digress. Have a great rest of your week!
