Day 12: Busy Beaver

Thank God it's Friday, that's all I can say. This week's been rough, I'm really sleepy, and I'm so glad to be home for the weekend..even if it's going to be a busy one. To celebrate the beginning of the weekend, I wore one of my favorite dresses. It's the same one I wore in my engagement photos this past November, and it's from one of my absolute favorite shops online, Ruche. Seriously, that place is addicting, and I want everything, I mean everything, they have on there! When I was looking around for a dress for the pictures, I knew I wanted a lace-y dress, but I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for it. So, after looking for the perfect dress for what seemed like forever, I looked at Ruche for the millionth and one time, and there it was. I had looked at their website plenty of times and seen it, but it wasn't on sale at first, then it went on a small sale, and thennnn, it was thirty more percent off. Uhm, perfect-o? When it came in the mail, I was so afraid it wasn't going to be perfect, but I shouldn't have worried, it was exactly what I was looking for and then some.

So, here's my favorite dress, worn in my favorite combination yet:


Ah, I love it, and I wish that I could take pictures in my parents' backyard everyday, instead of at my front door, ha. I tried pulling over at a really cool barn on the way home, but someone must have done something to it recently because there where no trespassing signs all over the place..and those weren't there the last time I stopped by, so I decided to avoid getting arrested, lol. Oh, and when I got home, there was a heart-shaped strawberry cake waiting for me, I love my mum. Hope you guys have a fab Friday!

    1. Teheh, so glad I could convince you ;)
      And I definitely did sing really obnoxiously loud the entire way home. I'm pretty sure my vocal chords don't know what to do when I take a road trip.

  8. That dress is adorable - I love that you can wear it simply in the warmer months, but can totally make it ready for colder weather as well. I hope you have a relaxing weekend after your not so awesome week :)
