Someday I'll host a garden party. And I'll wear this dress.
I say someday because right now our yard isn't really fit for any sort of party. Or rather, the house, isn't in any state for a party.
We're currently repainting the exterior of our home, and can I just say that scraping paint off a house is literally the top of the list of worst chores ever? I mean, I thought I disliked folding laundry, or weeding, but really scraping paint is pretty dang terrible.
So I'm distracting myself by repeating over and over again in my head how much money we're saving by scraping and repainting our home on our own (read-- not hiring any professionals). I'm also distracting myself by wearing pretty garden-party ready dresses because it's easy to pretend your home is all put-together when you're wearing a dress covered with happy blooms. Coping mechanism, people.
Another coping mechanism? My mother-in-law's homemade French silk chocolate cake. Even a day of scraping is glorious after eating that.
dress: dorothy perkins (I bought mine in London, but they ship to the U.S. and their dresses are adorable & pretty decently priced-- love this this one is adorable! and this one!)
