I have many posts to catch up on after an insane week, but the most important and happy news is that the Husband is home from the hospital, well on the way to recovery, and we are thrilled with how everything went!  It was certainly interesting to dress for my favorite body parts and re-affirm my gratitude for my own body while my partner was in the hospital due to body parts that have failed him for many years.  I’ve had a long post on this very topic queued up, but we’ll see if I ever get around to finishing it and posting.  In any case, things should be much calmer around here with him home, visitors departing, and the school year winding down to a close. 
I felt like going super easy and minimal today and with the pattern and cut of this dress as well as the bling of the sandals, I didn’t really need any accessories.  I love this dress—it’s one of my favorites as it’s so light and airy, with a flattering short hemline and empire waist.  I actually paid full price for it at Anthropologie last summer—something I rarely do, but I was in New York City and just a little seduced by how sweet it was. 
You’ve seen this picture before, but don’t my toes look so much better post-pedicure?   :)
