Spring on Sale

I've been feeling a little drab lately. I just can't get jazzed about anything while it's so chilly outside! I'm waiting for Spring to get it's butt into gear and get here already. And I think it's coming. I think it is. The buds and blossoms are saying yes, but my goosebumps are saying no. And like my own personal Groundhog, my goosebumps are the true indicator of Spring. Until they say Spring has come I will still wear my turtlenecks and refuse to participate in any outdoor activities without a significant amount of goretex.

All of this hunkering down in the house has caused me to wear out my sleepwear, since I change into it as soon as I come home from work or the gym. So today I went to Target to get more pajamas. (PS - are you guys in love with their Xhiliration sleepwear like I am? These little T-shirts and cotton pants are totally comfortable and really cute. I heart them.) And I'm sure you know how it goes. When you're in Target you never walk out of there with only the item you went in to purchase. I think it's physically impossible. Somehow another $50 worth of merchandise makes it into your cart. And anyway, I found this really cute dress!

It's springy! It's yellow! It's crazy comfortable! But most importantly, it doesn't require me to wear it with a cardigan or concealing cami. I mean, if I want to wear a cardi with it, I certainly could, but it's not required. And that's the main thing for a low-maintenance dress. And besides, at this point in this never-ending winter, $24.99 seems well worth it for a little bit of Spring.

I do want to take a second to point out that even though this dress is pretty cute, the shoes the model has with it are nothing sort of fugly. I am against white shoes in all of their manifestations (except for some really cute peeptoe slingbacks with gold studs from Seychelles. They are the only white shoes I've ever loved. They are awesome, and all of the other shoes in my closet are jealous that I love them so much.)

So if you want to imagine me in this dress, you should definitely imagine me wearing some really smokin hot heels. Like these, that I have in a funky "brush-off blue" color, which is kinda like this color. I couldn't find a picture of them in that color, just know that they are SO much cuter in blue. But still, you get the idea.

So as soon as the weather cooperates, I'll be able to start sassing it up. Happy Pre-Spring-Post-Easter-Dress to me!

I was just thinking this morning that I really need to kick it up a notch in the clothing my body department. I'm really sick of my winter clothes but it IS still really cold out. I left my house without my jacket today and I almost died! Anyway, I want to go shopping. When are you free?

that dress is totally cute. i love yellow, it's so sunny. and i am SO with you on the white shoe thing. i don't think they're appropriate after age 11. that seychelles pair does sound cute, though. some of my favorite shoes are my seychelles. they have great boxes, too. :)
anyway, can't wait for it to be warm at your house!

LOVE that dress! BUT - kind of ruined it for me when one of my beehives showed up wearing it on Sunday. (I'm thinking -Please stay in the juniors section will you!)
