"And now the only piece of advice that continues to help: Is anyone that's making anything new only breaks something else." - Dawes

Hello, remember me? It's been a few days. I apologize for the unplanned hiatus. I've been dealing with some personal issues the past few days and blogging has been the last thing on my mind. I would love to share what's been happening with you guys, but it's deeply personal. Maybe one day. In the meantime, thanks for understanding.

When I last left you, my new friend, Monica, was going to bring me the Contemporarian Dress in a size 4 to try on. She was planning on returning it, and I had been wanting this dress, so it seemed like fate. I was skeptical that the size 4 was going to fit, but it did! I was so happy! I couldn't wait to wear it, so I wore it today with a crocheted shrug and heels. I hated to cover up the pretty cut out back with the shrug, but I don't have a bra that works with this dress. I'm on the hunt for one, so I can show this dress off in all it's glory once it warms up. Speaking of warming up, the temperature hit 80 degrees today. It was very windy at my house this afternoon, so I decided to take pictures against the garden shed again to block the wind. My hair was weird enough today without the wind adding to the weirdness.

Today's song is "When My Time Comes" by Dawes. I absolutely love Dawes. I really hope I get to see them live one day.

I broke down and ordered my beloved Mompos Dress. I ordered a size 6. It arrived today, and it fits like it was made for me! I've decided to wait and wear it for my special 1 year anniversary photo shoot at the end of this month. It's going to be torture to see it hanging in my closet the next couple of weeks and not be able to wear it. However, I think some self-control will be good for me. Don't forget to enter my current giveaway for a beautiful necklace from Anthropologie. Good night!

  1. Lovely outfit! Fab photos! :-)

    Is that shrug a recent purchase? Would love to purchase one.

  2. you look gorgeous! I love the dress and the shrug. And the bare legs with it are great! Be happy - I am pulling for you and think of you often! Cheers! xoxo

  3. Yay to the gorgeous photo shoot this dress deserves! Glad it fits so nicely.

    Oh, I can't wait to actually wear mine out in some sunshine!

  4. Aww, I love your hair in waves like this! I wish mine would do that! :) The dress looks gorgeous on you!

  5. Bonnie this dress also looks like it was made for you, I haven't seen it on many bloggers yet but it looks great here with the little shrug and tan shoes. It didn't really grab me online but the colours are a lot more vibrant here than in the product shots. Sold! Can't wait to see your take on the Mompos! x

  6. You look terrific! The colors of this dress look really nice on you. :)

  7. I am so obsessed with that dress but my size sold out in like ten minutes online and it never showed up in my store! I love how you paired it with the shrug!

  8. Wow - you look gorgeous. I agree with Louise, the dress never caught my eye, but on you, it's wonderful. The last photo is so pretty - your hair looks amazing. Glad to see you back, and I hope your troubles are all gone. Have a great week!

  9. Love it! Love the blog! I think Anthropologie should start using you for their catalog because I want to buy everything you wear/style :)

  10. Anon: Thanks! I got this a couple of years ago, but I noticed they have some similar shrugs for sale at Old Navy right now.

    Sherry: Thanks! Your support means alot to me.

    greendress: I don't know if this shoot was gorgeous, but it sure beats my dimly lit dining room any day. LOL!

    Erin: Thanks! I'm glad you like it! I thought it looked like dread locks or something! I haven't washed it in 3 days and I sweated in my sleep the night before. So if you do that, your hair can look like this too! LOL!

    jennysanzo: Thanks!

    JanAlyssa: Thank you!

    Louise: Aw, I'm glad I could make you see this dress in a different light.

    Ady: Thanks girl!

    Kathleen: Yeah, it sold out in what I thought was my size, but lucky for me Monica came through with the right size.

    Tracy: Thanks! Troubles still in effect, but at least my hair is still considered to look good even though I haven't washed in 3 days. I'm grabing whatever positives I can get.

    Saskia: Aw, thanks! I'm very flattered!
