|Dress - Banana Republic / Instant Sleeves in Mocha - LucieLu / Sandals - Payless / Handbag - Gustto (via BBOS)|
Please excuse the poor picture quality, however. I had forgotten my camera so these were taken with Bob's iPhone. The contrast is wacky, but all in all I continue to be impressed with the pictures they can produce! (Many thanks and RIP, Steve Jobs.)
The dress? A sweet little Banana Republic sale score from an online return. I couldn't believe my luck that it was a 16 AND it was on sale! Totally meant to be. I just love the bodice of the the dress - such dainty pleating in a romantic cream color. I felt like summer's goddess in this dress! The skirt of the dress, in a slightly darker color that created a nice tonal effect, gracefully floated away from my hips, too, camouflaging all manner of sins below, and hitting perfectly just under my knee. The LucieLu instant sleeves worked well with the overall effect of the dress, too! All I had to do was throw on some gladiator sandals and a handbag in a vibrant pop of color and I was ready to go out and celebrate my momma.
Cheers to you, Mom!
