Chaudry dress, Ross
Some days, all I need is a good dress. I wore this on Sunday to take my dad out for sushi. I have a bad habit of buying pretty maxi dresses, then hardly wearing them because I somehow feel that they're too fancy. But I've vowed to break the habit, starting with this dress. It's too wonderful to not wear regularly - it's cotton with a cotton lining (so hard to find!) as well as just the right length off the rack (a delightful surprise when you're 5 feet tall). I plan to wear it to work, on the weekends, and every chance I get.
Here's what else I've been up to this summer, according to Instagram (my username is indigoblu3 if you'd like to be friends):
I own way too much fabric (I have this bad habit of buying 5 yards at a time if I see a fabric I like), so some stashbusting was in order. I made myself three new pairs of PJ/lounge shorts. These might make cute Christmas gifts - just buy a tee in a matching color to make a set.
Zentangles a while back, because it sounded like an easy way to incorporate creativity into my daily routine. This summer my goal is to draw one a day. This one was inspired by a discussion at meditation class - one of the regular students said that he hasn't really noticed any big changes or benefits, but that Zen is really about having the experience vs. hoping to benefit in some tangible way.
