Floral Dress and Denim Vest

FLORAL DRESS - Old Navy
DENIM VEST - American Eagle
BLUE SNAKESKIN CUFF - Made by my Mom
PINK WEDGES - Seychelles
Living with Princess Sparkles is sort of like being on a game show...all the time.  She loves to ask me questions about everything like, "Why don't birds eat sand?" "Who does that shovel belong to?" "Where are my dolls?" "Why don't I have lemon (phlegm) in my mouth?"  Most of the time I can answer her questions, though every once in a while she stumps me.  I do appreciate her curiosity, though not so much when I'm trying to jog with the two of them in a stroller in the blazing heat!

Here is the dress I bought yesterday from Old Navy for $5.99.  I was so excited because although it was in the clearance section, it didn't have a sticker on it.  I was gonna leave it cuz I really don't pay full price for anything, but my best friend, Plaid, made me take it up to the register just to check.  I'm so glad I did because when the lady told me how cheap it was I felt like I had hit the jackpot!

Anyway, I wore it out to my birthday dinner with Camouflage (though I paired it with a gray cardigan instead of this vest since we ate outside).  Camo and I don't exchange gifts because he knows I like to shop and buy my own things.  I appreciate that about him, because that way he/me always gets me exactly what I want.  No question about it, shopping is always my favorite gift!

Oh, I love this dress. That print is fabulous, the colors are fabulous and I imagine it looked just as good with the gray cardi as it does with the vest.

Also, I can't believe I missed yesterday's post, but belated Happy Birthday, Claire!

happy belated birthday! :)

look how cute you look in that dress! and what a great deal too, I think some times people purposely rip tags off to deter other people from buying something they cant buy at that moment!
