I shouldn't EVEN be blogging right now. I have a secret thing to make for Ana's link-up, which will probably close before I finish said secret thing and I'll have to cover myself with ashes in mourning. Such a mess. BUT I am so very excited to be wearing this dress again that I had to share.
It's even roomy enough that I can perform a very-opposite-of-inconspicuous out-the-neck-hole nursing-access-procedure (in the van or at home. Not in the pew for this one. I have some standards.)
Dress- merona for Target (clearance. I would have never been brave enough to buy this color at full price)
Boots- same precious gems from Kohl's that I've been wearing all fall and winter
Tights- Brown. You pick your fave place. These are literally over 10 years old from Old Navy.
Earrings + necklace: gift from hubby several years ago. I just love to pair greens with pinks.
Belt- same $0.99 gem from Goodwill (instead of the self-fabric belt that came with the dress) that I wear all. the. time.
(my 10 year old said "Hmmm, a thick belt with a dress. I never thought of that. Good idea." Go me!)
Also, can we talk about Lent for just a second? I always feel like it needs to be hard and miserable and if it's not, then I'm doing it wrong. Or something. But this year, cabin fever aside, Lent has been...so good. So far it's felt, I don't know, right. Like, a spiritual attack comes on and after wallowing for only a few minutes, I've been able to get my wits about me and turn my griping into prayer and it is magically mystically amazing the way the edges of the frustration and anxiousness are immediately smoothed away. "Lord, thank you for giving me this opportunity to grow in patience. Thank you for this opportunity to cling to your grace." Incredible changes to my day. Thank you, Jesus!
