This dress is beautiful, comfortable and was just plain divine to wear. I did feel pretty in it all day long, because I noticed I was walking with a totally different strut today! Khalilah, I thought of you!
Do I even need to talk about how the neck tie is my fave? How 'bout those sleeves?! Or the pleats? <3
I didn't even really need the little crop-ish jacket. We have been SO lucky with the weather here in New Jersey. I'm praying it never gets any colder than this ever ever again.
P.s. These awesome tights are one size fits all, but are a little on the looong side, so when I forget to pull them all the way up to my boobs they bunch up at the knees like this.

I was trying to show off my adorable flower ring from Ruche.
Not surprising at all, because we have about a dozen or so of the same dresses and shoes, I was doing my daily blog reading one morning while this dress was on its way to me from California and I saw the adorable Elsie wearing it to work that day. It's so funny that no one ever has the same outfits as me here in my little Jersey world (or anywhere I go for that matter), but in the blog world me and the ladies that I've come to adore for our similarities have damn near the same wardrobes, and we've never met. :) I bet we'd all get along so well if we ever did meet IRL (in real life).
So my friend/classmate asked me today what I was going to try and get done during winter break. Without even thinking I told her I needed to get back to running. I haven't gone for a single run in months! That is totally unsat. <--Do people outside of the military say "unsat"? I'm actually really curious, because that's a word me, my friends and supervisors used almost daily, and now that I think of it, I've never heard anyone on the outside say it. Either way, it's just short for unsatisfactory.
But yeah, I need to get my butt back into marathon mode. I miss running everyday. It made me feel really good and energetic...it was my decompressor. I've felt completely the opposite lately and I know it's because I'm not active, and that's something that's been really positive and stress relieving in my life...it makes me happy, so I know I have to get back with it.
I know not everyone else is in school right now, and you don't get winter vacay from your jobs, but are there any things that y'all are planning to accomplish in your own lives right now that you've sort of let slip to the back burner?
