Easy As 1...2...3...

I think dresses were invented to make make getting dressed in the morning easier for me...just one piece to throw on, add some accessories and slip on a pair of shoes.  Now, if someone could invent someting to make getting my boys dressed and to two separate camps on time...I would be eternally greatfull!

Dress-BR outlet/Shoes-Lori's/Jewelry-Francesca's, Accent Shop, Target

I went to the outlet mall yesterday looking for a new pair of running shoes and came home with this dress...typical...ha!!  I have decided to take up running again,,,it has been a good 4 or 5 years since I ran consistently, and I am looking forward to getting back into the running groove...there is a prairie path behind my house...it runs for about 20 miles...great trail...a lot of shaded areas to keep cool in the heat.  I got so used to running on the treadmill at the gym and I almost forgot how much harder it is to run outside...my shins and arthritic knees are none to happy with me.  Funny story...my trainer who fitted me for the right shoes for my stride length recommended the Nike Air Pegasus...same running shoe I wore 20 years ago when I ran cross country in High School...I guess if it isn't broke, don't fix it! Now, I just have to find my size...2 stores no luck...I think i am just going to order them online...I can customize them and everything!


Worn to work Friday, June 8



Dress-Target/Wedges-Nine West/Jewelry-BR, Old Navy

Like my new sunglasses...I won them from from Carly at ThirtySomethingFashion...she is a fabulous style blogger who is also a mom of almost two...she has one little boy and has another one the way.  She has such amazing style...plus she is about my age, so for once I don't feel like an old blogger.  This is my first pair of fancy sunglasses...I usually buy the $10 ones from Target since the kids tend to break them...No kids are touching these beauties...thanks Carly!!

Since it is Monday...I am linking up with the fabulous ladies at Monday Mingle...

These dresses look great on you! I especially love the second one with the wide belt and yellow shoes.

Good for you for getting back into running! I'll never understand how people can like running, but I guess it's a thing. I definitely approve of you buying a dress while shopping for running shoes, though, hehe.

Summer and dresses just go hand in hand. I can hardly go anywhere without coming home with one, haha.
These are both so bright and fun!

I agree that dresses make morning so much easier! Love both of these that you shared today. The prints are so fun and you always know how accessorize to perfection. I'm jealous of that skill! And congratulations of taking up running again! I bet it's a really great feeling. It's been on my to-do list as well, but just hasn't happened. You inspire me!
