Melt Me Slowly Down

I almost appear to be glowing in these pictures, but I promise I’m not.

April 19

I woke up a 4:30 AM this morning. No reason. Just happens sometimes. I tried to get back to sleep but didn’t manage until sometime between 7:40 and 7:50. I know this because I looked at the clock at 7:40, but was awakened by the alarm at 7:50. It was a brutal.

We are in such a weird place right now. It’s normally much warmer by now in Dallas, at least I think it is. And I feel like it’s too late in the year to be wearing leggings, and too cold to go bare legged. I lucked out with this maxi dress today as a happy medium. I have one pair of pants that are comfortable and I can’t really afford more. It’s getting tough to figure out what to wear, and it doesn’t look to be warming up this week. I am going to hit up the Wal-Mart, I think, and see if I can’t find a pair of cheap pants to make it through until I lose a bit of this weight. What I DON’T want to do is crash diet or try and lose it quickly. That doesn’t work for me.

Did you have a good weekend? I spent Friday night at home, we had pizza and watched Mad Men. Saturday we went to Good Records for Record Store Day and then my friend Kelly took me on a date for the best hibachi I’ve had in a while. Yesterday was a quiet day at home with more Mad Men and several hours of cleaning. I hate cleaning, but I love a clean house!~

I don't know how you feel about thrifting, but that might be a good way to get some inexpensive pants for the in-between stages of your diet - and less expensive than even Walmart!

Oh my goodness! That floral maxi dress and belt are so pretty together! I love it. I hate cleaning too but I love a clean house! Wish someone else would do it for me though:(

The print on that maxi dress is gorgeous, and I love that necklace! Like Rachel, I am a proponent of thrifting through the in between sizes stage of weight loss.

Kelly said...

I love the ruching on the bust of this dress!

Waking up that early has to be the pits. I can't say it happens to me, I sleep like a LOG. A deaf log.

Una said...

I don't comment often but I had to post to say I especially love this outfit! Sadly, I am too short for long dresses like this... You look like your banner portrait today!

Lisa said...

I love your dress. Like Una I too am too short for long dresses/skirts so I'm always envious of people that can pull them off.

I also love your necklace!

Looking long and lovely in this dress. It makes me want to consider the maxi dress!

Lesa said...

I love the dress and the bug!

Nicole said...

I can't believe I am actually loving a maxi dress. This is a testament to your abilities.

I have that same cicada on a giant ring :D

I agree with the first comment, try thrifting. It will be cheaper than Wally World. I love that big belt with the dress. I also agree with you, hate to clean, but love a clean house.=)

We are having similar sort of weather now but on the other side of the world...in New Zealand. It's too hot to be wearing a jacket and just cold enough that we can't wear a sleeveless dress.

Erin said...

That dress is GORGEOUS on you! I'm not the biggest fan of big belts on dresses, but this looks fabulous!

Audi said...

The dress looks lovely on you, and I love the way you've styled it. And your photos from the shoot with Colleen are fantastic!

Clare said...

That maxi dress looks just glorious on you, and I am majorly jealous of all your awesome necklaces!

Sheila said...

I love that dress on you, Erin - and despite what you say, you do look glowing! Must be that gorgeous porcelain skin.

I actually had a sucky weekend (some bad stuff going on with me right now), but I did manage to make it to the record store...and I bought a record!

Oh my gosh. You are so pretty. Fantastically pretty. I think you look perfect!
