I love simple dresses. One just can't go wrong with a simple dress, and a blouse underneath to add some character. Especially in the summer there's nothing better than a dress who's pattern can double as a picnic blanket if needed! I don't really love the square neckline and straps of this little number, but I think the blouse distracts from that enough to make this work. I love thinking about the evolution of personal style. When I first bought this dress a few years ago, I would just wear a ratty tank top or tee underneath it to hide straps and add a little coverage. I didn't have nearly the creativity to play around with adding a button down or anything underneath it. Oh if I could go back to little college freshman Katie and teach her a few things ;)
My hair has been so poofy lately, I love it! I don't know where it's coming from-the abundance of hairspray used in the play maybe, or my newfound love of ratting (that's a destructive relationship if there ever was one). I always did love a little volume. If I had been a teenager in the 80's you KNOW I would have been one of those girls with the gigantic perm and bangs sprayed to high heaven. See exhibit A:
Aw yiss. I yearbooked myself. I'm just that cool and don't you forget it.
Aaaaanyway...Things have come a long way since that time, but I still love me some volume-just not in a helmet shape around my entire face. :)
My sister took these photos of me when she was visiting last week. And then we put on some crazy music and had a dance party in my basement! Dance parties are the best. We made a couple of videos and I'm trying to decide if I should post one or not...haha. When my sisters and I get together it's pretty much dork city in the best possible way. I absolutely love dancing. I love being crazy and just freestyling to music, but I also really love choreography. I want to find a good dance studio in town and actually take a couple of classes, it would be so much fun! I've had a couple of recommendations from friends that I should check out. What about you guys and gals, do you love to dance?
I hope you're all having a splendid week!
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
