Darker Floral

I think I probably have this dress in several different versions, but I just can't resist a cute dress at 75% off. Actually, my mom treated me to this dress when we went shopping together a few weeks ago. Our trips to Belk at Phipps Plaza, with a stop at Starbucks for Chai tea lattes, are becoming something of a ritual with us.

Dress: French Connection Gardini Fit and Flare Dress (no longer available)

Sandals: Stuart Weitzman Soundtrack High Heel Sandals

I'm surprised I look at all bright-eyed today, since I did not get a good night's sleep last night. It's my own fault for watching The Fall, a show I just started viewing on Netflix, right before bed. It's about a serial killer who stalks professional young women in their early 30s -- and then murders them -- and about the lead detective hunting him down. Gillian Anderson from The X-Files plays the detective, and since it's a British series, each season is only a handful of episodes. I have two left in the first season, so of course you know what I'll be doing tonight. You'll also recognize Archie Panjabi, Kalinda from The Good Wife, playing a pathologist.

The show rattled me so much I must have gotten up about five times to check to make sure there was no one in the house. I also had to put on The Princess Bride to distract me as I was trying to fall asleep. I'm almost done reading Cary Elwes's book on the making of the movie: As You Wish. It's a fun little read, and since I have it in hard copy (instead of on my Kindle), I've been keeping it next to my bed to read when I'm sleepy... but not quite ready to close my eyes.
