Welcome to the Dark Side & LINKUP

4:00 AM

Dress:  Cavender's // Shoes:  Marshalls (old)

May the 4th be with you to all of my fellow Star Wars fans.  Hence why I made the title of this post Welcome to the Dark Side.  Spring is always about light colors and introducing the summer brights, however I decided to go with a classic approach and wear a black dress with sandals.  I love the bell sleeves trend that is going on, it’s just so pretty and in my opinion girly.

The lace on this dress has to be by far my favorite part of it.  The fact that it’s black, lace, and above the knee it can be worn so many different ways.  I also can’t wait to wear it for the holiday season that is a really long time away!  I got this dress from Cavender’s when I went on my Cavender’s haul a few weeks ago.  I got so many new things, including pillows for my apartment that are sitting so nicely on the couch.  The only problem is the fur children like to knock over all of the pillows so they have more room to sit.  Yes, my dogs are premadonnas apparently.

I’m so glad that I did do this Cavender’s haul because I’m starting to run out of clothes.  Do you ever feel like your clothes have been repetitive and even though you haven’t worn that specific pair of pants in a year, if you put them on you feel just bored with it?  Yea, I’m starting to get to that point so I’ve been trying to find ways to wear the same pair of pants or dresses, etc.  I don’t think it helps that I’ve gained weight so I’m just not happy with how I look in a lot of things.  That’s why I’ve decided to start doing little mini workouts.  I walk with the dogs and then when I get home I try and do at home workouts.  It’s actually fun because the dogs try and distract me and while I’m doing crunches both of them will lay down on my belly like “hey mom, we’re here, pay attention to us, love us!”  Then they eventually get it and start playing with one another so I finally have time to do my workouts.  Don’t forget to link up with me today!

**Also, if you have subscribed to my newsletter you already know that I've made another linkup announcement.  I'm going to start a 5 for Friday/5 Favorites linkup.  More details will be coming up on Friday's post but make sure to come back and check it out and link up with me!
