Hot Pink Does the Trick

There are days when I feel like the only thing that'll make me happy is some hot pink accessories. That and dots... obviously.

{Dress: Nordstrom (old), Shoes: Forever 21 (cute option), Necklace: J.Crew (old), Bracelets: David Yurman, t+j Designs}

Do you ever have those days or weeks where it feels like it's taking forever for Friday to come? Recently I get those a lot. And when I can't or shouldn't be eating my way to the weekend, I use my clothes for a little pick-me-up. Bright colors always do the trick!

Perhaps what I really need is a vacation. We haven't had one in a while and we don't have one planned until later in the summer. So every day just seems to drag. Must... make... it... to the... summer! Are you going on any vacations soon? Tell me so I can live vicariously through you!

Love pink and that dress is cute. We're going to Chicago tomorrow! Still need to finish up packing...I'm such a control freak, I don't let anyone else really help pack, so it's me...my fault, but I have to know where everything is in the suit case, cause the few times I let Mr. pack, he says, where's this or that, and I said, I don't know you packed it, and then he gets frustrated, so I just do it myself, that way I know exactly where this and that are. :) We have another trip next month to Seattle! Fun times at our house.

Ginny said...

I really like the pop of hot pink :) I can't wait for school to get out! My hubby and I talked about going to Chicago this summer, but no set in stone plans yet.
