Fancies and letters


Off to a wedding...

I love this dress because it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O.  I tend to go for more color but it grabbed my eye and I couldn't resist.  A pop of yellow and some ruby red lips and we're ready! Linking here and excited to see what everyone picks:)

Writing "Letters" this week too, here goes:

Dear grocery store bag boy and cart whisperer, thank you for meeting me at my truck and coming to my rescue as my two wild children nearly caused a shopping cart catastrophe.

Dear favorite beverages (i.e. morning coffee, afternoon seltzer, and evening anything with alcohol), thank you for making each time of day better in your own special way.

Dear blog friends, thank you for visiting my wee little blog. You make me feel good:)

Dear statement necklaces, you'll be the death of me. You're everywhere and I want you all.

Dear running, you keep me sane and I'm grateful for our time together. 

Dear half marathon, I'm coming for you.

Have a super fun weekend!
