I love how the sun shining on my face makes me look as though I have a tan! Aaah, the days when the sun is warm and the thermometer doesn't say TEN DEGREES!
I remember wearing this dress last December to my sister's annual holiday party and she pulling me aside to tell me that when I raised my hands you could see the seam of the control top on my tights. Ack! Now due to my new size, I can raise BOTH HANDS and not flash anything. Funny how a few pounds can change not only the waistband of your favorite jeans but the total length and silhouette of each garment in your closet. It seems each weekend I have to re-assess my wardrobe and decide what fits, what flatters, what to take off the hangers and sell/donate, and what to hold off on thinking it may work in a few weeks. I am really looking forward to warmer weather and playing with my spring wardrobe!
