Wow, your comments yesterday were just amazing. You blew me out of the water! I had no idea what many of you enjoyed about the blog, it was so helpful to read your feedback! I know that sounds ridiculous that I didn’t really know, but sometimes blogging is like having a one way conversation. You share all kinds of information, but don’t get verbal cues after you’ve talked and talked and talked. So thank you for your individual responses! Each comment was like opening up my mailbox and seeing a handwritten, thoughtful letter. I read each comment at least once…many gave me flutters in my chest.
I’m all inspired now. I planned to share a little more about my journey to The Berkshires and Boston (getting there, I promise) but I first wanted to tell you about this dress I picked up on the clearance rack at Anthro during my short time in Boston. Until I looked this morning and it was sold out. It wasn’t last night! Whatttt?!! Well, I don’t want to waste a rare picture with my husband, so here’s the dress ; )
Sidenote: I know it seems cheesy that I went to a “chain” store when I was in such an amazing city, but we were walking around after dinner and had very little time. Plus, the Anthro on Newbury is charming and really big – two stories. Nothing like the ones we have in Atlanta. Annnnd, I’m an Anthro junkie. But you already knew that.
Okay, so re-do my entire post. I combed the internet late last night and this morning for replacement dresses. Here’s a cute blue maxi I found at Tar-jay…I would layer this guy with a fun jacket (if you’re in a city with temps cooler than ours…it’s hot as Hades around here) or wear out to dinner with a fun necklace. This is one of those good basics to have. And 29 bucks, it’s practically disposable.
I also ran into this cutie, which is nothing like my Anthro dress, but it’s so adorable! It ties in the back, which you can leave flowy or wrapped. Love. I’ve never bought anything on this site, but the dress looked promising.
Did I mention I have a stripe problem? Here’s another I’ve been thinking about, but a totally different look. What I call an around-the-town dress. I haven’t tried this one on, but do love the look and price. Thinking about getting this one. $36. Link to dress here.
Seems like this would be a cute dress for that summer to fall transition period. Which, for those of us in the deep South, is like the next three months. How I envy you lucky ducks who live a little farther North!
I have to run sew on ribbons and elastic for my new pointe shoes…class begins shortly. Have a wonderful weekend!! Thanks again for all the sweet comments yesterday. Hugs to you all!
