FIRST STYLE CHALLENGE LINKUP. Hollaaaaaa! I have loved, loved, loved seeing your posts on Instagram and hearing how the challenge has been for you. I have mad crazy respect for those of you who are in negative temps and still took the challenge to wear a dress. *bows down in awe*
My friend had a bridal shower where all guests were asked to wear something sparkly. I scrambled around for something–anything!–that would work beyond jewelry, but I got rid of the few sparkly tops I had a while ago. I was given this scarf over Christmas, which is the only sparkly item in my closet, so I had to make it work. Obviously I need to remedy the lack of sparkle, stat.
I didn’t have Addie with me, so I didn’t have to worry about anything being nursing friendly. Honestly, I was kind of bummed that out of all the dresses that I’ve been staring at longingly in the back of my closet, this plain grey one was the only one I could wear because it was the only one that worked with this sparkly scarf. It felt like a missed opportunity to wear the dresses I miss so much, but I know this is all temporary. And there are WAY (way way way way) worse things to be bummed about in life, so I got over it, threw on an outfit, and thanked the Lord that I even have clothing, period. 🙂
This is *exactly* one of the outfits I showed in the Blanket Scarf remix, just with a different scarf. Never mind that. It’s a dress! And that’s what counts today!
Anyway, LINK UP! LINK UP! I want to see your posts and read about how the challenge was for you!
