Weekly Wears: Flamingos!

Dress: c/o Sugarhill Boutique;  Denim jacket: old;  Knee socks: Target;  Shoes: Wanted;  Tote: c/o Tulle;  Glasses: c/o BonLook

You know that emoji with the heart eyes?  That is me for this dress.  Guys, it has FLAMINGOS.  The back detail is darling and the cut is great, but I would probably wear this dress if it were a square sack with arm and neck holes cut out.  I mean... flamingos.

In other news, today I ran 3 miles.  I was pretty sure I couldn't even run 1 mile, but I have some seriously encouraging friends AND the drive to acquire bragging rights to a 3 mile run.  In all seriousness, it made me feel really good.  I need to keep up with it-- accomplishing little goals over and over soon turns into accomplishing really big goals.  Life is really fun when you see it that way.  :)

  2. The flamingo on the dress makes it really playful and great for summer. Well done you for running 3 miles. I try to do that? I might just get a heart attack.

  12. That back!!! Flamingos are awesome, but you hooked me with the back detail.

    Also, way to go on the three mile run!! I got there last fall when I was training for a 5k. Then I...well, you know...stopped running after the race. Whoops! Maybe I should get back into it. :-)
