If I Rise

Today is kind of miserable in Atlanta, since it started off raining and is supposed to rain all day. I think there is even a Flood Watch for some nearby counties, and at this moment I hear thunder rumbling overheard. At least it is not as cold as it was earlier this week. I am just hoping that Chapin's flight home is not delayed this afternoon.

It's always difficult for us when it rains, because George absolutely hates to go out in any kind of "abnormal" weather. He was not too happy with me this morning when I dressed him in his little blue raincoat, but it's worth it to not have to try to dry a wet pug. Pugs have such thick coats, it takes forever to dry him, and I always have to break out the hairdryer when he has a bath.

When it is so gross out, I usually try to wear something that makes me feel confident and stylish. Today I chose the Milly Ana Deco Print Shift Dress. You can't really tell from the photo, but this print incorporates a very subtle pink that I just love. If it had been warmer, I would have worn my pink sandals! But I opted instead for my BCBGMaxAzria patent bow pumps in black.

As it gets closer to the end of the fashion challenge, I will have to start breaking out things I don't like to wear at all, or simply don't like to wear to work because they are more casual. And writing this blog has made me realize that I need to downsize my wardrobe. If you are interested in purchasing any of the pieces you have seen on my blog -- most of them have only been worn a handful of times, if that -- please let me know! I'm generally a size four or six.
