The One with the Dress

Outfit #6

this was much funnier when I took it than it is now

I've always been a lover of skirts over dresses. I like the versatility of wearing a skirt with different combinations, but it's also just because my pear shape makes it difficult to find dresses that fit me.

anyone else creeped out by my blobby monster shadow?

So for the 30 for 30 challenge, I only picked one dress. I didn't want to include too many and then force myself to wear them.

Behold the one dress...isn't it cute?

Did I mention that maybe I've never even worn the dress before today? That's really sad.
I bought it this past spring and then just never did. Once summer came, it seemed better to wait until fall.

I've been on a gray and yellow kick all year. It may have something to do with these being my wedding colors...check out the bridesmaid dresses here. And once I picked those colors for the wedding, I saw them everywhere this year.

hello, Mr. Sun

First day of wearing the tall heeled boots for the challenge. They do this weird scrunchy thing at my ankles...probably because I have big calves and skinny ankles.

weird scrunchy thing

I really need some boots like this, where they are already ruched.
Ooh, or these...or this gray pair...

Ok, time to stop browsing online...it just makes me want to shop.

Emmelee gray yellow floral dress (Francesca's Collection)
denim jacket (Macy's)
Diba black pointy toe boots with heel (DSW)
gray tights (maybe Dillard's?)
black beaded necklace (Walmart)
silver black medallion earrings (So Good Jewelry)


  1. I love this dress. I actually love many dresses at Francesca's, but can hardly ever afford them. I love the splashes of yellow in it.

  2. Super cute blog! That dress is amazing, I love the sleeves.

  3. Am glad you included this dress into your 30 pieces! Very good decision. & yes, I think yellow must be a top color for you. It's such a great color!

  4. LOVE that dress!!!! Haha, and that first picture is too funny. I don't think I've tried the yellow-grey combo, I sure will now that I see you rocking it time after time!!
