In fact, it was "party weekend" with a couple kids' parties, a deck picnic lunch party with my favourite Megan, and friends coming over and staying till 11pm (which is EPIC when you're a parent with young children). Throw in a BBQ, July weather, and a sunburn (didn't see that one coming), and I'm pretty well partied out.
Saturday, I wore a full blue jersey skirt that has just been hanging around waiting for the sun like all of us.
Skirt $4.90 and mustard tank $4.20 VV Boutique
Necklace was a gift!

Another day another bathroom.
Floral, stripes, navy, yellow... perfect!
It reminded me of many of the dresses from ModCloth, so naturally it had to come home with me. Just one little problem... The zipper was a bit sticky in the store. As in, I never actually did it up. Well, it turns out the tag claims this is a Size 6 dress. Jump for joy, wear it inside-out! It did take a fair amount of effort to zip it up. Because of the sticky zipper of course!! My husband should really work on his grip strength to make me feel better about just how hard he had to reef on the zipper. That, however, was not the wardrobe malfunction. Nope, when all was said and done and I was trying to get into my jammies and get the kids to bed, I got stuck. In my dress.
This is my dress, turned to my front, being stubborn.
Just follow the sparkles and we can both be happy!
Lesson learned #1: Buy sunscreen in April no matter how much snow there is.
Lesson learned #2: I am not a size 6.
Lesson learned #3: If you're stuck in a dress, it never hurts to keep a 5-year-old handy.
