yay 🙂 happy Friday !!
This dress is an “old” standby by now, something I reach for in the depths of summer when I don’t want to wear anything that touches my skin, or that I wear for just hanging around the house. I put it on recently and wondered to myself what I would do if anything ever happened to it, or if Oak stopped making it. I used to panic about things like that, and want to stockpile multiple colors and/or even buy a duplicate or two to hold on to. Now, I resist that, and just try to appreciate what I have, instead of letting myself focus too much on a future without it…
Anyway, when I wore it yesterday I noticed it falls off my shoulder now much more than it used to, which annoys me slightly. I do always wear a strapless bra or tube top underneath so my bra straps never show, but I don’t like to fuss with things too much, and I found myself messing with keeping it on my shoulder. So, I’m glad I don’t have another one in this size waiting in the wings…if I was to replace it, I’d get the small anyway.
It’s still not quite hot enough to wear this much here, but this dress is one of the things I have looked forward to wearing each summer since I got it; it’s the easiest dress ever. Not very fancy, so not appropriate for much besides running around or weekend fun, but that’s okay, everything doesn’t have to work for everything, you know?
I have a quiet weekend planned here compared to last weekend, and quite frankly, I’m still getting “over” my mom being back at home, it was so nice having her here and just hanging out for a few days. That, I think, is the hardest part of getting older and being so far away from family…
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Oh, and I ordered the new Everlane street sandal and promptly sent them back 5 minutes after I received them. First, they were absolutely a half-size big on me, and also, I was worried about the elastic back strap. The whole strap was elastic, and I thought that it was just a bit more loose than I thought it should be. I wanted them to be cute, and fit, because I like the look of them generally, but they weren’t, and I don’t think I liked them enough to re-order in the smaller size. Did anyone else order a pair of the new sandals?
