The dress that my Mother bought me

Hi Lovely!

Happy Friday!  This weekend I’ll be spending quality time with friends and family. On Saturday I’m going on a thrifting adventure with my dear friend, Kristina of the Eyre Effect then heading up to Seattle to attend a food fair with Fletch and my big bro, Dayton. Sunday will be more of a chill day but I plan on heading up to my favorite local kawaii store, Sweet Kitty, to pick up a few items they’re holding for me.

When I have full weekend like this I like to look cute but feel comfy. When your day is go go go there’s nothing worse than a dress making it hard to breath or shoes killing your feet. I strive to find a happy balance between looking awesome while also feeling awesome. This look is one of those perfect combos.

My Mom bought this dress for me right before I got married. We were scouring the internet for a mint cardigan for me to wear at the wedding and found the perfect piece at Dorothy Perkins. My Mom, being the deal lover that she was, told me to pick out something else so she could get free shipping. I happily went back to the site and found this adorable purple dress.  To this day it is still one of my favorite dresses. The armpits are getting worn but I don’t even care. Put a cardigan on and no one knows!

I love this dress because not only does it make me feel great but my Mom bought it for me. It’s special. Whenever I was shopping I’d consult my Mom. If I was out I’d text her photos of the items I was debating. If I was online shopping I’d send her links to the items I was interested in. This dress, as simplistic as it is, reminds me of those special moments. It’s silly but I wear it and feel closer to her.

It mighty be a simple dress but the way it makes me feel is anything but simple. I’m ready to take on the world in this little number.

Do you have any clothes that have a special meaning to you?

Leave some love!
