Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

I am so excited because tomorrow I will be attending my first Blogger’s Conference – The Blog Workshop.  It’s an an online virtual 3-day/3 hour conference with some great topics and speakers and I am psyched!!  I expect to gain the knowledge necessary to help me grow my blog and am looking forward to meeting other bloggers as well – will you be there?

The pool is now open and because The Blog Workshop begins in the evenings I’ll have plenty of time to work outside in preparation of the Memorial Day holiday.

Today is Peachy Polka Dots – can you spy a change?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It took me a while to get myself together after this morning’s encounter with my neighbor, but I’m glad that it happened because last night I dreamt about my aunt who passed away on Friday. However, the reason for being extremely late this morning was the multiple outfit changes, not the Polka Dot dress, that was a given but what to wear with it. I tried 2 different shirts over it,…2 different shirts underneath it…3 different color blazers before finally settling on this Aqua Cardigan.   I buttoned it and put on a pair of Mossimo flats then looked into the mirror, I immediately thought about FLOTUS Obama meeting The Queen of England.

Remember the flack she got for having the audacity to wear a sweater to meet The Queen for the first time – puh-leeze people – get a life! No matter your political affiliation, that was just stupid with a capital “S”, such an embarrassment for our country…just one of many…okay stepping down from the Soap Box now.

I am so glad that the weather is finally warming up, the birds were chirping in all their glory..aah the sounds of Spring.

Today’s outfit seemed appropriate as a transition from Winter to Spring what do you think?

Thursday is the horizon to the weekend…it’s all downhill from here.  Today is gloomy and overcast after last evening’s showers and thunderstorms that broke the heatwave.  My goal this week was to wear a dress a day and barring any major downpours tomorrow I will have succeeded.  I remember when girls/women only wore dresses and in Junior High I would hide pants under my skirts because my grandmother didn’t allow us to wear them.   My sister and I had a job at Arthur Treachers Fish & Chips and we had to ask permission from our Pastor to wear the uniform because it had pants.  Now here it is 37 years later and I prefer to wear dresses on the daily and hubby seems to enjoy it as well (side eye wink wink).

This Polka Dot dress was featured in my June post, here, but I decided to mix the polka dots with my green, patterned wedges from Ross.

 

WEEKEND IS COMING!

 

This dress was one of three purchased in May 2009, to wear to my grandmother’s funeral – RIP Mama!  Blue was her favorite color and I wanted to wear something blue but ended up wearing the traditional funeral black.  It has been hanging in my closet ever since because it has a short cropped jacket and ribbon belt which makes it look very matronly.  Today I decided to wear it but without the jacket and ribbon belt and it’s now one of my favorites.
