Birthdays and '50s dresses.
I feel like I've been away forever!
With schoolwork, a visit from my parents, and a little birthday party Saturday I had a very busy week/weekend. Sunday I was going to make an Easter post (I have pink bunny ears and everything!) but we kind of just lounged around and ate candy instead. Yesterday was my actual birthday and I had the loveliest day; my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law bought me Scrabble (which I've been wanting since Christmas!) so I made my husband play with me a billion times. This was a large chunk of our day:
I'm such a nerd. And then we cooked dinner and had it out on the back porch using our new little cafe set! So yes, that's my kind of birthday.
Every time I wear this dress I tend to pair it with boots, which isn't the best idea since ankle boots combined with the dress length do absolutely nothing for my shortness and make my legs look all stubby. But I can't help it! This is the only '50s dress I have and it makes me feel weird to wear it in a dressed-up way, I don't know what that's about. I'm much more of a mini-dress person. But this one really is a great little summer dress, so I can put aside my '50s weirdness for that I suppose.
