And Down She Goes...

For a 4 day week, this week has seedm awfully long. 




Dress-Target/Boots-Williams/Jewelry-Francesca's, gift

Nothing like a comfy Target dress to make a exhausted Friday more bearable! 

The weather in Chicago is so wacky...it is currently 54 degrees...in January.  Normally, I would be wearing this dress with a denim shirt and/or a cardigan.  But, it was just so nice out when I woke up, I decided to embrace global warming and go just the dress.  I had on my favorite brown suede ankle boots on the school run this morning...then I slipped in the parking lot, like the dorky mom I am...and skinned my knee, bloody hole in my tights, scuffed up booties and bruised ego.  So, I ran home to change my tights and threw on flat boots...less of a chance I will bite the dust again in these!  Alex was there when I hit the ground...he ran up and asked my if I wanted him to kiss it...I melted...  To bad that kiss did not take away the current throbbing, purple lump I now have on my knee.

I am off to embrace the weekend...and maybe a nap or two...

I fall weekly. At least. I am currently sporting a clementine-sized lump on my shin for running into a concrete post with my Target cart (doh!). So I understand your pain--too adorable that the little man wanted to make it better!

I adore the subtle pattern play of the bracelets with the floral dress--very fun!

Ooh, sorry to hear about the fall and knee scraping. Alex sounds so sweet though :) The blue necklace pairs perfectly with this great dress!

This outfit is so lovely! I love how the bold blue necklace picks up on the blue in the pattern of your dress. Very pretty!

Ouch! That's totally something I would do too. Last week did feel really long, and this one is going to feel even longer no doubt. Anyway, I love that blue necklace with the dress--those colors are so pretty together!

Love that dress! I have it in teal. And your boots are rockin'!

I always used to think four day weeks seemed longer than full weeks, and I think it's because you're expecting it to feel so much shorter that it just throws you all off. Now, I don't know if I could work a five day week if I tried :)

I love that dress...and I'm glad the weather was cooperating for you to wear it.
