Paint Our Teeth Green

This is one of those dresses that I've been swoonin' over forever. In fact, I borrowed it from Elana sometime last year and if I thought our friendship could remain in tact if I stole her favorite dress, I probably would've. Okay, I wouldn't have, but ya' know. So, yeah, I found this on the Facebook swapping group and I about died. It's a size medium which means it's kind of big on me, but sometimes you make sacrifices for pretty things. Brown is another color I'm not crazy about, but with a print this good, I care not. (Speaking of Elana, we redesigned her blog and it's beautiful.)

I've been very busy with work, school, life, and finding the balance between it all. Some days seem better than others and sometimes I wonder how we function with only 24 hours in a day. I can't imagine how parents who work full-time feel on this subject. I don't see kids in my future and so, this helps me keep it altogether when I think about how hard it is to stay caught up.

In other new: Local Natives put on one of the best shows -- even if the crowd was the WORST. For reference a girl was eating sushi in the crowd. Tonight, I'm seeing Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. They're one of my favorite bands and I feel lucky that they tour at least once a year and never skip Cleveland/Akron. This week (woah, May) I'm also seeing another band I love, The Slackers. The Slackers are one of the few (maybe only) band that all of my siblings and I love. We have a huge crew of siblings/friends that go to every single Slackers show and like Margot, they rarely skip Cleveland. If you have the chance to listen/see any of these bands, please do! Ah, I love live music season. I seriously, cannot get enough of supporting/seeing bands live.

  1. I can see why you love this dress, it looks awesome on you :) I love how it matches your sunglasses. Isn't it just the worst when good bands have bad crowds? I saw The Growlers in Portland because I thought the crowd there wouldn't be as bad as their SoCal crowd but some guy threw a beer at the singer's head and girls kept jumping onstage, trying to grind up against the band... I guess some bands just have bad crowds everywhere haha.

  3. Well, as with the blue, brown looks awesome on you! I love the patterns of this dress! I'm amazed at what can get done in 24 hours--especially considering that for 8 (or so) of those hours you're sleeping!

  6. Oh wow, this dress is perfection on you! Love the brown sunnies you wore with it too.
    Btw, beautiful job on Elana's blog! You should really offer your blog designs for hire...I'd be one of the first to take advantage of it ;)

  7. You look adorable, and love how it matches with your sunnies. Dude working full time and trying to have a life is no joke...so appreciate your student schedule now! I ONLY can hang out with friends on weekends (esp since I gym after work everyday). I'm SO glad I get to work remote now (my commute is at least 1 hour, one way), gives me time to do other things when I'm not busy...like laundry. Seriously. No time for laundry if I didn't get to work from home once in a while.

  8. Brown isn't usually one of my colors either, but I make an exception when it's something this cute! Glad you had fun at the show even though the crowd sucked. That can totally be a game changer. I love going to see of Montreal and last time the crowd was so obnoxious and it totally ruined it for me!

  10. I remember this dress last time you wore it, and I think it is one of the best you have! You look awesome in it. It looks so good with the sunglasses especially!
    I saw a dress with a similar print recently but it was a completely straight dress that look awful on me so no go. But I just love the city skyline print with the cute collar.
