Don’t you just love when you go to Target with a shopping list of the essentials and you leave with a dress you’re excited to wear all season long? This little spring frock was just too good to pass up last weekend. The attention to detail with the ruffled hemline, a subtle gingham texture in the fabric, and a lining (a rarity for something with such a low price point) makes it well worth the $33 price tag and reminds me of something you’d find at Anthropologie. If you click through to the product images, you’ll see that it has ruffled cap sleeves. I thought they were too fussy and looked silly on me, so I tucked them underneath the straps and I’ll eventually have a tailor remove them.
Could it be that spring is finally here?! The signs of last week’s snowstorm already melted and yesterday was warm enough to don my new jumpsuit for outfit photos without my teeth chattering. I would have worn this number all day (it was that nice out), but we spent the afternoon biking to nearby breweries and bars with our some of the friends we’ve made in the neighborhood. It was my first time on a bike this year and I wasn’t sure I could manage to ride without getting the wide legs of the jumpsuit caught in the chain!
Other than that, it was a low key weekend. We attempted to swap out the old ceiling fan in our bedroom for a new one, but ended up emailing our electrician instead. The old fan was incredibly wobbly and we’re not sure the existing electrical box has enough support for the new fan. (While I’ve found myself to be fairly adept when it comes to house projects, crawling in the attic to install a new electrical box isn’t something I’m keen on.) I also ordered one of these sconces in brass with this shade to try in our living room. Schoolhouse Electric charges 10% for shipping and requires the customer to foot any return shipping costs, so I want to make sure I love it in person before ordering three more.
