Today's dress, from Kate Spade New York, is in a beautiful navy shade and features a velvet bow at the waist. It would be the perfect dress to wear around the holidays. But since I just bought it -- for a great deal, of course! -- today will have to do. At least the weather is cooperating, as this dress definitely is more Winter than Spring.
As my husband said this morning, though: "I'm ready for it to be warm!" I agree!

I love the dress, and it even has pockets, but the darts at the bust are a little too defined for my taste. I adore the feminine details, though; in addition to the bow, the ruffles around the edges are just adorable.

In other news, I am excited to report that I earned a first place award this past weekend in the Topgolf 5K Run -- it's my first! I placed fourth out of all female runners, and was first in my age group. I also took the top honor in the Overall Masters Female category. (I guess "master" is a nice way of saying you're old!) My time was 22 minutes, 44 seconds, with an average page of 7:21 per mile. I don't normally go that fast, but I pushed myself -- and it paid off!
