Sporty Dresses and Toddler Jokes







Sporty dress: Rue 21 (similar herehere and here)  |  Black opaque tights: Target  |  Rain boots: Hunter (other colors here)  |  Silver statement necklace: Forever 21 (similar here)


How much do you think this dress cost? $20? $50? One million dollars? (Said with pinky finger placed at corner of mouth.) Actually it was a shocking $3 on clearance. I'd been looking for a way to incorporate more of the athletic trend into my wardrobe. I've tried wearing sneakers in non-exercise settings, as in this post here, but I wanted something else. That's why I bought this dress, despite the HUGE price tag. I love that the dress has a slightly sporty feel, but not so much that people might think that I just left my tennis dress on after playing a game.

Eve is getting to a really fun age. Not that she hasn't always been fun... it's just a different kind of fun. Her imagination is getting pretty impressive. She loves to hold books or anything that even slightly resembles a book and pretend to read it. The stories she comes up with are adorable. Here's an example from a couple of days ago:
"Once upon a time, there was a mean Pete. Scary Pete. A ghost attacked him. Pete trapped the ghost. The end."
See, she's already writing literary masterpieces at two-and-a-half. I believe her "Pete" character was inspired by Pete, the bad guy from Mickey Mouse.

Not only is she a budding author but she's also an up-and-coming comedienne. After Eve told her story, John told Eve a knock-knock joke and asked her if she could tell him a joke. She replied, "The ghost attacked Pete again. That's funny!" And that broke out in a fit of hysterical giggles. Comedy gold, right there.

    1. Thanks! I agree, it's always better to get trendy items on sale. They're a bit more of a risk and they just don't get worn as often as wardrobe staples

  15. I think the coral of your Hunter boots is my favorite color yet. They are making me seriously think about taking the Hunter boots plunge.
