1. I've started taking my camera to school with me every once in a while. I've been surreptitiously dipping my toes into the water when it comes to taking outfit photos outdoors. It's an interesting challenge (oh hello there, natural light!) and it's even more interesting without a tripod. Nothing worth sharing yet, but it's been fun.
2. Chocolate chip oatmeal no-bake cookies. I like to fool myself that the inclusion of 2 cups of oatmeal makes them healthy. ; )
3. Using up my Banana Republic $10 rewards and an ancient giftcard to score this dress:
I was heartened to see that Carol of In Pursuit of Pretty Things had worn the gray and pink version of this dress and that it seemed to fit her pretty well, especially lengthwise. Gap's checkout system was acting weird last night, and kept emptying out my cart due to "unexpectedly high demand," but I was pleased this morning to toss this into my cart and check out without any problems. I scoured the actual store in vain yesterday, but the only thing I was remotely interested in was this dress in active blue (much cheaper in store than online), but the fact that I would have to cut 6 to 8 inches off the bottom deterred me. That, and the fact that I don't wear my other long dresses enough. I also tried this on, loved the fit and print, didn't love the price.
We now resume our regular programming -- and our shopping ban. :)
