(I actually wore this dress on Friday, but I wasn't able to get good pictures that day, so I got pictures on Saturday and am posting them now.) I ordered this dress last week end, and got it early last week. I measured wrong, and it ended up being a lot shorter than I had planned on. Modesty aside, it looked ridiculous on me. I looked like Shirley Temple - and my curly hair didn't help any. But I didn't mind since I love the way it looks layered over this white eyelit skirt I have. (Sorry it looks weird here, the skirt is too big and too long so I have to pin it but it was coming down and I didn't notice till just now) The pairing is so light and feminine, and I felt like I ought to be going to a proper English tea in an English country garden.
So I've mentioned before that I'm going to a wedding in April. I'm driving to Alabama with my best friend, Heather, and her mother. Originally they were going to pick me up, but they realized how far out of the way that is, so on Friday Mrs. Knisley called my mom to talk about the trip. Long story short I get to fly out to Wyoming (my first time on a plane in 14 years!) and stay with Heather and her family for a couple days before driving to Alabama. I am psyched - to say the least.
I've known Heather for three years, and we've been so close for so long, but since we live so far apart we're not able to see each other for more than a couple weeks a year - so seeing her is enough reason in itself to be very excited! But I've yet to visit her, or meet any of her family, so that is even more reason to be excited! I've been able to talk to some of her family online (ya gotta love FaceBook, right?) and I like them lots already. I can't wait to meet them in real life. *bounces like a little girl*
Oh, and this dress is so coming to Wyoming with me... <3
