Be My Baby

Back when I started the Fashion Challenge at the end of last summer, there were some dresses I thought I would have to forfeit due to the weather. But since I have made it to March, and the weather continues to be beautiful and Spring-like, I can pull out some of these more lightweight dresses.

Today, for Day 125, I am wearing one of my favorite dresses: the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bluebell Flutter Stripe Dress. This dress has a very 50s silhouette -- the skirt is very flared for a day dress -- and the red, white and blue palette is very appealing to the eye. As someone with blue eyes, I like wearing colors that make my eyes pop a little bit more, and this dress easily accomplishes that task. Marc by Marc Jacobs is one of my very favorite brands. The dresses are always so memorable!

I also love the little puff sleeves and the waist-defining aspect of the dress. If you have a small waist, show it off! I love how uses "waist-defining" as one of its sorting criterion.

I am also wearing BCBGMaxAzria Gage Royal Blue Patent Peep-Toe Pumps that I purchased back in 2009. They have a low heel and are fairly comfortable. I always get a lot of compliments on these shoes.

If I look a little tired today, it's because I didn't sleep that well. I hurt my ankle yesterday and slept with it sort of propped up in bed. George decided that instead of sleeping beside us on the bed, he wanted to sleep ON TOP OF ME. So I had a pug on my stomach/ bladder area and my left leg in the air. It was not that comfortable, and I woke up early this morning badly needing to use the restroom. Thanks a lot, George! :)

In other news, I was very excited to visit my best friend, Katie, and her husband in the hospital last night to see their newborn son for the first time. Isn't he a cutie?

After the visit, Chapin, George and I went to Yeah Burger for a late dinner. We love this place, first of all, because the food is delicious, but second of all because it is a rare dog-friendly restaurant. (Our other options for dining with George include Park Tavern, Taco Mac and O'Terrill's.) We usually sit out on the patio, and the weather was mild enough last night that it was very enjoyable. I am so glad Spring seems to sticking around.
