It’s time to start 30 Days of Dresses! I meant to start mine on Saturday, but then Mr. Owl and I went on a hike. And I haven’t mastered the art of hiking in a dress. (There was snow at the top. We slid on the way down.) So I started yesterday instead.
Fun fact: the last time I remember wearing this dress, it was summer. And I had a tan. I miss summer. I want it to come back.
If any of you want to join my friend Sarah and I, please do! I got a lot of comments (that I have yet to reply to, shame on me!) about it, and I’ll answer the questions here: yes, it’s okay if you can only do it for half a day, and any sort of traditional garb is fantastic (I so want to see those!), and if you can only do it for a week, that’s fine too! It’s just a fun challenge to get you to dress up in something you might not wear all the time (I wear skirts almost every day, but I am at a loss as to how to style dresses sometimes), or to dress up every day for a week, or to wear the dresses you haven’t seen for months in the back of your closet.
So if you want to join in, you can share the link to your blog post on any of my 30 Days of Dresses posts, or go to my Facebook page and link there, or if you don’t have a blog you can post the photo to my page or tag me in it to share. At the end of my 30 days, I might try to gather up all the links and pictures of everyone who joined in and share you all in a post so that we can all see how we did!
Unfortunately, due to time-constriction and the fact that I don’t like to be seen while we’re taking pictures, Mr. Owl and I didn’t get very many pictures of this dress, and the three we got of me standing didn’t work out very well. This location is the back steps to my house, where we finally settled because my cousins were over and it was the only nice spot we could take good pictures without being seen.
It’s funny, I don’t mind if there are random strangers wandering past when Mr. Owl is taking pictures of me, but if it’s family that could see me, I get shy.
These shoes have survived a lot. They’ve been through fields of spiders, been covered in mud, traversed over shells and rocks and barnacles and bricks, and there’s only one little scratch that isn’t even noticeable. I love them.
So, if you want to join Sarah and me in our 30 Days of Dresses, hop to it! For any day that I don’t blog a dress (such as the weekends), you can check my Facebook page or this album. I’ll be posting all 30 dresses on Facebook, but only the really good ones will make it to my blog.
Also, check out 14 Shades of Grey’s first 30-Days (ish) dress. It’s adorable!
I hope you all have a fantastic Monday!
