Trend powers activate! Form of: maxi dress!
I’ve actually had this dress for a while, and I’m a little surprised at myself that it’s taken this long to actually work it into an outfit post instead of just lounging around in it on lazy weekends. I have worn it two or three times for traveling in, though! Those days just weren’t conducive to picture-taking, what with the flights and the exhaustion and all.
This time, I gussied it up a little to make it semi-work-appropriate, and then spent the whole day feeling like I’d come to the office in my pajamas. Well, hypothetical pajamas. I haven’t worn a nightgown for sleeping in since I realized what a pain in the ass nightgowns always end up being. But for daytime wear, it turns out a pseudo-nightgown is pretty fantastic. Get it, whoever brought maxi dresses back!
Things have been cooling down very, very slightly (as in not going over 100F in a day), so naturally I jumped at the chance to make some piping hot broccoli cheese soup Wednesday night. (It was worth every sweat droplet.) My cooking bug is coming back with a vengeance, and I’m cracking my knuckles to make some peach ice cream this weekend, if I can manage it. Also, some garlic butter noodles, ‘cuz I got a fever and the only prescription is
more cowbell Chinese egg noodles. Also-also, we have our annual department barbecue, so I will spend Sunday eating ribs in an inappropriately pretty sundress and possibly learning how to work a paddle boat. What about y’all, anything fun on your radar this weekend?
