Last week, Lauren suggested we do some clothes shoping. She had a business trip coming up, and needed a few things. She thought it would be fun if I came along. I could update a few things in my closet, too.
We decided to go on a weekday, avoid the crowds at the mall, and take a break from work. It was a warm day, so I decided to wear something comfortable.
I had a skirt that I always wanted to wear but never did, and this would be the perfect opportunity. It is a green paisly design that was about mid-calf length. I generally go for something shorter, but I liked this style. It had not one, but two fairly high side slits, and revealed a lot of leg when I walked. You can’t actually see it in this picture, but there’s a second slit on the right side of this skirt.
I did my nails (and my toes!) with a teal colored nail varnish. I really like the color, and it matched the skirt pretty well.
Lauren looked really cute in a short blue floral-patterned sundress. She has kind of naturally olive skin, and she really looked stunning.
We shopped at a couple of stores, and Lauren picked up the things she needed for her trip. We peeked into a couple of other stores, more window shopping than serious deal-hunting. I was beginning to think I wouldn’t find anything for myself, until we walked into a small shop that had quite a few sun dresses on display. I picked out a white floral patterned one, tried it on and fell in love with it.
This is the new dress. I put it on that afternoon, and Lauren and I went to our local wine tasting room to relax, after our day of “retail therapy.”
