New dress - Queens Wardrobe, shoes - Steve Madden Dynemite, purse - Aldo, bracelet - sister, sunglasses - Vogue
I LOVE warm weather. I especially like sunlight but you wouldn't guess it with my crazy sleeping schedule!! Sometimes I go to bed at the crack of dawn, not because I can't sleep, but because I always have so much to do (I work from home too) and have a hard time stopping. And then I miss out on 8 whole hours of sunlight. Boo.
This lovely dress covered in flower print was sent to me by one of my sponsors, Queen's Wardrobe. It was actually a miscommunication, and when I received it I was incredibly worried because it seemed so shapeless. And not only that, I was sure I didn't have a belt to match! But alas, I remembered this blue belt I bought probably 5 years ago on sale at Nordstrom Rack, thinking that of course I would wear it, but no - I never did! And yet here it came it to the rescue because I realized it matched perfectly with this dress!
Has this happened to you? "They" always say to toss anything you haven't worn in a year, but I disagree. I say toss it if it doesn't fit right after too much wear, you realize the color isn't for you after all, you don't want it and totally missed the 30 day refund window, or you have absolutely no more storage space.
It's worked out for me thus far - because quite honestly, trends cycle and what if you didn't get out of the house as much as you expected? Impromptu events come up, life is full of surprises! Not tossing stuff you haven't used recently (but still see potential in) is one way to be prepared for the unknown, (or maybe just to become a pack rat. Ha.). Anyways, let me know what you think about it!
