Some little birds have been telling me that they need more to read here...or an update or something.
Y'all who know me know I'm not a strapless dress kinda gal. Nor am I truly a maxi dress convert. I think they look great on other people. But I'm clumsy. I trip over the hems walking up stairs. And Seattle rains often enough that I worry about tripping around with soggy hems.
But here I am. I couldn't resist these large tropical print flowers.
To keep myself from constantly tugging up the top, I added some loops to the inside and threw on some removable bra straps. I then threw a blazer on to hide the straps. A belt reigned in the 'pregnancy' look. And a bright red pop of a necklace added some extra visual pop! I even managed to keep from tripping...too much. :P
So ok birdies, how were those crumbs :)?
Ev's parents and my fam are in town for my departmental hooding ceremony (for doctoral students). I get to wear large purple robes and a funny looking puffy purple hat. Perhaps a photo of the outfit will make the blog. I'm all about embarrassing silly photos. Why not one with a puffy hat?
Till next time birdies!
