Outfit of the Week

And it's only one day late! Presenting last weeks Outfit of the Week!

I couldn't help myself when I saw this dress! It isn't quite my mother's family's tartan (Robertson) but it was close enough that it reminded me of the beautiful, if very itchy, wool dress that I wore when I was little. I couldn't find my black sweater before I left the house (I was running late!) and the sleeves are a little too slender for my taste (and the skirt is quite literally floor length, which made me trip several times going up stairs!) but I love the dress enough that I overlooked these little flaws and got it a few weeks ago. It is my Christmas splurge (which I guess isn't bad considering that it was something like $24 at Target). It could have been much, much worse! And it's loose enough that it ought to work for a good portion of my pregnancy! I can't ask for more than that!

Sadie's dress, on the other hand, was a bit longer when we started out our day, but she managed to completely destroy the lace, built in slip and so I finally tore it out of the dress (at least it tore straight across, perfectly) so that she wouldn't trip on it a twentieth time. In this picture she is exhausted from watching dancing penguins, a belly dancing hippo and a ballerina elephant (and an actual real horse). With five minutes left in the two hour Christmas show she passed out on my lap and had a ten minute nap before we had to clear out of the theater! What a day!


  1. That is a very beautiful dress! It must be so much fun to buy pregnancy clothes! It would not be too hard to hem the dress to make it a little easier to wear and not trip over. Being very short (5 feet), I have to deal with that problem a lot!

  2. I love this dress!! I saw it in Target and didn't know if I wanted to buy it or not...but that was mostly because of the price. I'm cheap and I talk myself out of alot haha but you look lovely in it!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
