Pretty in pleats

Isn’t this dress to die for? Nothing like feeling pretty in pleats. And tiers upon tiers. How fun is this dress? It’s a Lulu’s original but I found it at Nordstrom Rack.

Lulus tiered, pleated midi dress, Nordstrom Rack; Red wedge peep toes, old; Red floral necklace, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, Marshalls; Rose gold sunglasses, Ross.

 

While everyone else was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I was over at Nordstrom Rack checking out the already reduced prices on all of their clothing items. I’m definitely one for a good deal, and The Rack has way better deals than the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, IMHO.

This dress would be perfect for a summer wedding guest outfit. I felt like I was all dressed up with no fancy event to go to. Instead, we headed out to Hood River for a day trip.

It was a bit windy so I added a top later on, but still, a beautiful day for a drive.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I have been on vacation this week and it has been amazing. Not long enough, though. I think I need to move to Europe where they get month long vacations to our week long ones in the States. Or win the lottery…

Spring green

I know, it’s been a while. Unmotivated is my middle name lately when it comes to the blog. Or anything. I’m feeling a bit burnt out and not sure if I even want to continue the blog anymore. It just feels so two years ago, ya know?

Work is pretty chaotic right now, my back hurts from the car accident I had in December. By the time I get to the weekend, I have no oomph left for me.

However, I got trigger point injections this past week that numb up the tight knots of pain in my back and I feel okay for the moment. I can tell they are already wearing off in some spots, but I still feel better then I usually do.

And, I am ordering so much stuff from Young Living I am qualifying to get a free bottle of the essential oil, Motivation, so perhaps that will help as well. We could all use a little motivation every now and again, huh? Ha. If you want to try out Young Living essential oils, sign up using to get your essential oil starter kit using my link here.

If you sign up for Essential Rewards, soon to be Loyalty Rewards, you can start earing freebies, too. The more you spend, the more freebies you earn. Start with the starter kit and move on up from there. Or not. I really could care less. (Here’s the lack of motivation speaking again. I really do need that Motivation oil. I’m not kidding here!)

On to this outfit. You can’t tell in these photos, but there are tiny little colorful speckles all over these jeans. I just loved that detail. And the ruffle on the mint crocheted top – also super cute. Add golden sandals for this glorious spring weather, rose gold purse and sunglasses, and you’re good to go for a minty spring green outfit. And now, I’m going to go hang out in a tree. Because I feel like it.
