Pretty in pink

I probably own way more dresses than I really need…especially since I wear scrubs at work!!

Actually, I probably own way more clothes than I need, period!!  But what’s a girl to do?!  So many cute options…so little time!!  Maybe I should start doing multiple looks for each of my days off, like in those reality TV shows we’ve all seen – something flowy and relaxed for the morning; a jeans and boots ensemble for my chai latte fix in the afternoon; and then one of my fancy frocks for dinner (and maybe a movie!) later that evening!!

In reality though, my husband and I lead a very uncomplicated life…we generally plan our weekend activities on the morning of each day (and there are times when our day doesn’t even get started until the afternoon!!)

Which means that I will often wear something most women would consider “special occasion” – like this little pink number – for no real occasion at all.  Today I toned things down a notch with my Vintage America boots and a studded belt; but don’t be surprised if you see this dress again paired with some fabulous heels (maybe even those from my “Pink shoe casualty” post!)…ready to party it up at the local Starbucks!!

      What could be easier than a look like this, dearest Maggie…add some shoes (or boots!) and accessories and you're done!! I think that's why I like dresses so much!! P.S. Your outfits are always amazing, too!! XO

    Liebe Monika,
    das ist so ein wundervoller post und ich würde gerne ein solch entspanntes Wochenende mit Dir teilen. Allerdings fängt unser Wochenende meist sehr früh an… und mit unseren Kindern können wir selten so in den Tag hinein leben. Aber ich denke, das kommt später wieder.
    Aber egal wie der Plan auch ausschaut und wann der Tag beginnt, mit diesem Kleid in pink rockst Du jede Aktion – von Starbucks bis zum Kino und ich wäre gerne mit dabei. Ich drück Dir ganz fest die Daumen, dass Du ganz bald mit diesen wunderschönen Jessica Simpson Pumps einen ebenso wundervollen Tag verbringen kannst. Ich drück Dich und schick Dir ganz liebe Grüße nach Kanada… Conny
    Sorry, that I have used the german language, but I'm faster and I can explain my feelings better… hope it's okay for you… <3

      Natürlich darfst Du auf Deutsch schreiben, liebe Conny…ich schreib' jetzt manchmal auf Englisch wenn ich Deinen Blog besuche, weil es auf Deutsch viel länger dauert!! Die Tage werden irgendwie immer kürzer, denkst Du nicht?! Thank you so much for being such a wonderful blogger friend…I am sorry that we live too far apart to go to Starbucks or the movies (or shopping!) together, but at least we can "visit" each other this way whenever we have a free moment!! Sending a big hug your way, too!! XOXO

      Of course, dearest Dawn…that's the REAL problem!! My closet is too small, too!! ;D

      What can I say…I couldn't resist it!! 😉 Thank you so much for "visiting" all the way from Israel!!

      Isn't it a fun coincidence that we both decided to do a pink look at about the same time, dearest Dana?! I say it again and again…great minds think alike!! ;D I actually don't have a lot of pink in my wardrobe, but this little dress is so flirty and cheerful, I simply had to make it mine!! XO
