I am so excited about my outfit today! I haven't worn this dress since winter and I've been wanting to pull it out all summer so far but haven't had the chance. Recently I got the idea to add my obi belt from Megan Mae when I saw Ki of Dressing Up For Life wearing her obi belt with a similar styled dress. I was going to wear this together last week but due to the lady issues I mentioned yesterday I just had to put it off. Today I was good to go though and I'm glad I waited because my newest order of buttonflowers from the fabulous Megan Mae came in the mail yesterday so I added one to my outfit as well and I love the entire look!
I still can't believe the versatility of this dress. I've worn it in all types of weather now - nearly zero all the way up to 90 degrees. Crazy! It is probably one of my favorite pieces I own, if not the most favorite, it's definitely in the top five!
So last night we met up with a couple of friends at a nearby brewpub that we love, it totally has that Cheers "Everybody knows your name" vibe and they have amazing beer and a lovely patio. We braved the heat and still sat on the patio because it was actually shaded pretty well and as the sun went down it was quite nice. We were sending off one of our friends who leaves for Africa tomorrow for a two week trip. We actually had a really interesting conversation about what type of clothes she should bring, not just for the weather, but what will be culturally acceptable. It was a great night - though right towards the end I totally knocked over my glass of ice water and spilled the majority of it on my dress. Let me tell you, if I was warm at all at that point, I sure wasn't after that! I was proud of myself though, I did not break down in tears like I might have in the past and I even finished another round of cards before we left. (Yes we play cards at the pub. That's how we roll.)
Today the Pants Monkey is off of work again and he is brewing his very first batch of all grain beer. I won't bore you with tons of details as to what that means, but let's just say it's more "from scratch" than the other homebrew recipes he's done in the past. I'm so proud of him for trying this out and I can't wait to taste the finished product in a few weeks! As for me, it's work as usual and I should get back to it. Have a great day!
