Half a week in short - Days 56, 57 and 58

So, on Sunday, Jesse and I hosted a little brunch on lawn. I brought out the camera, and snapped photos of Sarah (Stutterin Mama) who looked super cute, then she took photos of Jesse and I at the barbecue. The next day, Jesse took a couple of me in my cute DeWeese Hawaiian before we left on our bike ride.

Turns out, there was no SD card in the camera.

Solanah took photos of the outfits, I threw them on at the end of our shoot, but it isn't the same.

This has been a week of "throw on the dress and go." This simple zip-front 1940s housedress is one of my favorite go-tos for that.

And this DeWeese Hawaiian was once in the shop. It never sold, and I don't know. I ended up keeping it, and am so glad. I rode 20 miles on my bike in this dress on Monday.

 Finally, while I should have been blogging after our photoshoot Tuesday, I threw on this dress, that didn't zip when I started this blog. I love the magnificent shoulder pads! We went out to hear the Saloon Ensemble play - a jug band, essentially, with some of the raunchiest bar songs ever.

A favorite souvenir scarf. I did end up taking it off shortly after, my curls were pretty and the rayon scarf kept slipping anyway.

Tomorrow, you'll get today's post - on time and everything!!

Thanks for your patience and support while I catch up with my busy life. xoxo


  1. I love house dresses!The print on that one is fantastic.

  2. Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that! I didn't know that was possible. My camera won't take pictures unless there is a card in the camera. But regardless of your mishap, I adore your outfits! Especially that last one. My favorite color with some western flair! Yes please!

    1. I couldn't believe it - I asked Solanah three times if there was internal memory! I took this full round of pics of Sarah in the most adorable sun hat, too.

  3. love those zip front dresses, comfort personified...looking great J!

  4. I think it's just awesome that you are even doing this challenge. It's been so inspiring and has really jump started my creativity when I go into my closet. And congrats on fitting into that dress again!

  5. I understand the camera card pain... I have two cards: One lives in my computer and one lives in my camera. When it's time to download pictures, I just switch them.
    Also, congrats on getting into dresses that didn't used to zip! That's amazing.

  6. I am enjoying your posts so much lately! It's so much fun to see what you'll be wearing every day! I really love that the dress in the last set of photos matches your cowboy boots (no coincidence I'm sure!).

    Keep up the good work! You look great! :)
