Oh. Oh, my. It is Monday. It is 8:19 AM. I am at my house. IT. IS. SUMMER. BREAK.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>HAPPY DANCE>>>>>>>>>>>>TWO STEP>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
School actually ended Wednesday, but I was back in my classroom Thursday (cleaning). On Friday I got sick (still sick; I have no idea what’s going on), Saturday I chaperoned an end of the year trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Sunday I was laid up in bed STILL sick, and today I woke up at 4:30 AM and hustled my hindquarters to boot camp. Sadly, I left boot camp early because I was feeling light headed and not up to par. I got my 40 minutes of exercise in and booked it home.
After a shower I felt a little better and here I am. I have to do some running around today because I am in desperate need of a dress (my preference) for my engagement photos (next week).
I’m having to really practice what I preach. Many people lament that it can be difficult to find modest clothing and over the past two weeks I totally agree with that statement (I previously suggested alllllll the different ways to make immodest clothing modest).
All the dresses and skirts I’ve come across are:
1. Too short
Ugh. I went to my closet to pull out a dress I thought I still had in my possession–I didn’t. Over the past three weeks I’ve dumped loads of clothing off at Goodwill and that dress was one of them.
I’ve been a major proponent of layering, but in the summer sometimes I just want to wear a dress and be done. No extra shirt, no blazer, no cardigan–nada.
So today I’m making it my mission to see if I can find some modest skirts and dresses that do not require any rigging. I plan to post my find on Facebook and hopefully I can come in under $50 with an outfit for my engagement photos. We all should have such “problems”.
Stefanie blogged about headbands Friday and I decided to wear a headband today. This outfit is actually the reverse of THIS outfit. Ha.
Does anybody want to join my “woe-is-me-where-are-the-cute-and-flattering-modest-dresses” Pity Party? No?!
Wearing: Anthropologie top, vintage/thrifted skirt, some headband I bought at Nordstrom. Other pictures are from our Monterey trip.
