30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 10

This morning was rainy and grey and Pearl and I had nowhere we had to be. I would happily have stayed in my pyjamas until noon. This is a BCBG dress that I bought at a local consignment shop in Sechelt. I've always worn it as a dressy item (see it here) but dressed it… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 10

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 9

(See the dress in 2014 here.) This dress is from H&M. It's a nice mid-season item, easy to wear in Fall and Summer. Today started out overcast and rainy and ended sunny and this worked well for most of that. My boots were a thrift store find at a Goodwill in Seattle when we were… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 9

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 8

(See this dress in 2014 here and in 2013 here.) After several days of heat and sun the weather has returned to a more familiar rain today, albeit a muggy and confusingly warm rain. It seemed like a good day for this dress, which is best worn with leggings. Especially when dealing with toddlers and… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 8

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 7

I'm clearly not here to impress anyone with my photography skills but I have to warn you that today is particularly unimpressive. Yeah. At least Pearl's head is mostly there. I took pictures (with a timer, obviously) early this morning before my parents came up from the big city to visit for the day. I… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 7

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 6

(See the dress in 2014 here and here and in 2013 here.) It is hot around here. Which is highly unusual for us so early in June. Who knows if it will last. Our grass probably won't. I've had this dress for years now (and pretty much just been wearing it the same way with… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 6

30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 5

(See the dress in previous years here and here.) Hey, a new background! Check out our crazy climbing roses. This dress is from Vero Moda and I bought in Prague way back in 2008. I had planned to wear a different dress today but the temperature has jumped up this weekend and so sleeves were… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 5

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 4

(See previous years here and here.) If I had thought ahead, I would have taken pictures first thing in the morning today - before we headed out to the beach where I sat in the sand with Pearl, waded through the waves, and generally had a fantastic time and came home with my dress wet… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 4
