Trouble Found Me

Our clothing swap was on Sunday and as always, Rachel was the best host. She made veggie chilli, had a cute corner set up with mismatches cups (for chilli) and mason jar cups where we could write our names, hummus, and unlimited snacks. I made cinnamon apple muffins and they were divine. Every swap is very different in terms of who shows up, how many attend, and how long they run. This one was smaller and everyone left super quickly. Which was totally fine because that left time for Abby, Rachel, my sister, Nicole, Lily and I to hang out, sort the leftovers and try on random things we'd never wear. Which is how I ended up with this dress. A midi dress isn't exactly number one on the list of things ladies under five feet should wear. Abby convinced me that I should in fact try it on and well, as you can see, I loved it. It's soft on top, silky on the bottom, and fits like a dream. Sometimes the pieces we least expect to work out are the best.

I realized awhile ago that with a pixie cut most of my hats do not work. This is a very sad thing to realize because everyone knows how much I loved hats. As it stands this is the only hat I have that I feel okay in. The first time I wore it, my mean male friends said I looked like an 80's pop star. I promptly went home and hung it up, but I tried it again and I didn't hate it.
