There’s Always Tomorrow

Things will be better tomorrow, that’s what I’ve been telling myself to get through the last couple of weeks. As I mentioned in a previous post, life has seemed extra busy lately. I wish I could say that it was full of fun and exciting things, but that just isn’t the case. It has been full of home improvements like having our garage re-sided and the plumbing fixed in our bathroom. Not exactly exciting stuff, but I guess it’s necessary. The problem is that every time we get something fixed it seems like something else goes wrong! What we thought would be a simple repair turns into a million others. Oh the joys of home ownership, I’m just not sure I’m built for the stress of it all. Aaron and I are not exactly what you would call handy people and really have no business owning a home. Through all of this, we have talked more and more about buying a condo. It would be a much better fit for our lifestyle, but unfortunately that’s just not in the cards for us right now. One day we will, but for now at least we have a working bathroom ;).

On to more exciting things, like this adorable dress from Modcloth! The second I saw it last winter I immediately fell in love with it’s layered white collar and red fit & flare silhouette, it was just screaming my name ;). This dress definitely has an Annie vibe, so I decided to offset it with a leopard print headband and shoes. I think it did the job quite nicely while adding a bit of interest to the outfit. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago and I’m pretty sure that was the last time I could get away with bare legs, so I’m glad I took advantage of the warmer weather while I could. You will be seeing lots of tights and socks for at least the next six months!

I am so excited that it’s the weekend! We are going out to celebrate my parents’ October birthdays tomorrow with shopping and dinner. After the last few weeks it’s nice to have something to look forward to. And even though I know you loved my gripping home improvement ramblings, hopefully I’ll have something a little more exciting to write about next week ;). I hope you all have fun plans for this weekend too!

P.S. Can you find the puppy in these pictures? ;)

  • What a cute dress and head wrap. I love how you matched your shoes and headwrap!

    • Truly, Tamara

      Thanks, J!

  • This dress is so similar to a fave I had for about 9 years. Mine was orange crepe and it had tucks about an inch apart all down the front and back. I got it in the 9th grade and work it almost to thread bare in mid college years. I should find the pics I have and use them for Throw Back Thursday. Hmmm, great idea, thanks for inspiration in that respect. And … Fashion ITEM Friday is great with you, too.

    • Truly, Tamara

      I’m glad I could provide some inspiration and I would love to see those pictures! Thank you for stopping by again, Renae :).
