Time for rebirth

Dress: Sangria;
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft;
Shoes: from Philippines, gift;
Bracelet: found in my couch cushions,
unknown origins.
How I've worn the dress before: here.

Okay, more farm park photos. This will be one of the last times for awhile, for real. We had to go back to the old apartment to clean up, and we went to trivia afterwards. It's taking a lot longer than I thought it would to move, what with our small cars and smaller car loads. It's okay. Every time we go back to the old neighborhood, I'm reminded of how much this is going to be a good move for us. It seems like the time we lived there was ages ago.

I really love this dress. It reminds me of tree bark, or peacock feathers. The red belt just pops against the dark pattern. I felt pretty put together while moving boxes.

signature1 by you.


  1. I'm glad you felt put together, because you LOOK put together! That's a great dress and I agree, the belt is fantastic with it.

  2. I totally know how you feel about the move. It feels like Joe and I have been moving all summer, but we're definitely in better places now, so it's still really exciting!

    And I love this dress! You make simple look SOOOO chic.

  3. you moved boxes wearing a pretty dress? you're my hero.

  4. I can't believe you wore that to move boxes either! I was in cut-offs and a big T :)

  5. Congrats on the move, I wish you all the happiness in your new place!! I love the dress! XOXO, Natalya

  12. I love the farm photos - there's such a romantic feeling in all of them. I can tell you both truly loved that place. I hope you're all settled into your new home and that the move has been a low-stress one!

    That dress is gorgeous, by the way. The print is incredible, and I just adore it with the deep red belt. You look so lovely, Joann!

  13. The pattern on that dress is so fun! You and AUH would get along so well. I don't know how many people she's helped to move/clean their apartments while wearing a dress or a skirt!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
