The slits are a little high and the dress is sheer, but I’m taking it to a tailor this week to get a slip sewn in and the slits sewn up.

I was at a teacher conference in Sacramento last week; I’d finally stopped waking up in a panic (thinking about lesson plans, students, and general teaching nightmares), but being at the conference last week made me realize summer is nearly over.
