It seems like eons since I last posted on this blog…at least “almost a week” in the blogosphere equates to “eons.” Unfortunately work and church activities have left me fairly busy recently, so coming up with interesting blog posts has not been a possibility. My mental capacities are pretty much maxed out. I’ve had ideas for post topics, but haven’t been able to put together the appropriate string of words to fully elaborate and paint a clear word picture like I would like to.
Luckily, one type of post that doesn’t normally take as much “mental wordplay gymnastics” are my outfit posts. The outfits normally speak for themselves, and it seems a good bit of my readership likes them (or so is my interpretation from the view count). So I guess, when in doubt, post an outfit.

Dress – Gap Fleece Pleated Dress; Sweater – Old Navy Boyfriend V-Neck Cardi (similar); Boots – from G.H. Bass & Co. Outlet (2012); Knee Socks – from Banana Republic (old); Scarf – from Forever 21 (2012)
Remember when I mentioned that I had been lusting after a certain Madewell gray dress? Well, it turns out that Gap got smart and decided to put out a VERY similar dress. I happened to come across it as I was doing a little shopping at Eastwood a couple of weekends ago (while the hubby was in California for a conference). I was so excited, I didn’t even look at the price tag as I grabbed it and made a beeline for the dressing room (this is SO not like me…I ALWAYS look at prices first). Once I did finally look at the price tag ($65) and texted a photo of the dress to the hubby (he approved), I only hesitated a moment before marching to the register to make the dress mine. I walked with such giddiness and joy, one could argue it was more like DANCING to the register.
I was expecting to pay full price…after all, it was only a bit more than half of the price of the dress of my dreams (which is a MAJOR score, no matter how you cut it). But the fact that the register applied a 40% off the tag price…icing on the cake! I may or may not have let out a little shriek of joy when the price rang up $41.34 (including tax).
Here’s a better view of the dress (without the cardigan covering it). If it weren’t so cold (for fall…to me, anyway) here in Michigan right now, I would wear the dress like this.
So many possibilities…this is truly a dress for all seasons. If I could, I would wear it every single waking moment of every single day…which, of course, could be detrimental to the life expectancy of this dress.
