Happy Monday! We just got home from a day of surfing in the warm Hawaiian sun, and Chris and I are hanging out on the couch watching a movie, bellies full of Papa John's. So, let's just say I'm fully content. And also quite tired. But a good tired. 

Last Thursday I went out for a girls' night with our Mini Church girls (the guys stayed in and chowed down on pizza). It was the perfect excuse to wear my new dress. I've been so addicted to dresses and skirts this summer. When I dig through my closet for something to wear, about 7 times out of 10 lately, I'll grab a dress. And pretty much every other purchase lately has been a new dress and this pretty purple one is no exception. It's pretty simple to feel pulled together when your whole outfit just slips on over your head and you can skip out the door. Thankfully, since we live in Hawaii, I know I'll get tons of use out of even my most summery dress. 

At least, as long as this obsession lasts... then I'll move on to the next one. You know this girl can't stick with one thing for too long. Colored jeans, anyone? 



  1. Dresses are the next black!

    And I love that you combined the headband with the fedora.

  2. You look beautiful, and I just love that you chose to go with a yellow purse for a pop of color! Don't you just love a night of chilling on the couch, watching a movie and eating pizza! Have a wonderful week!
