What I'm Loving Wednesday

I feel like I could write a much longer post on what I'm NOT loving today, but I'll try and keep this all sunshine and lollipops and link up with This Kind of Love for What I'm Loving Wednesday.
I will tell you that right now I am NOT loving that Blogger will not allow me to upload I am including links where I can. Because I kind of need your help/opinions towards the end of this post, please-and-thank-you.

I'm loving... that the earthquake got me an unexpected early leave yesterday. Thankfully because of my new office location, my commute home was not as bad as I think it would have been from my old office. Now there were still some major @ssclowns on the train and bus rides, but I think that's just totally unavoidable when riding public transpo in the DC area.

I'm loving...that the only earthquake casualty at the apartment was this poor guy. I let him lay there for awhile just to remind me of what we had all survived yesterday. Powerful stuff, right?

I'm loving...that I get to see my favorite hair stylist today. My hair's looking pretty darn tired at the moment and needs his help! I am not looking forward to the lecture I am going to get about my latest root touch up debacle where I kind-of sort-of just colored my whole head of hair instead -- oopsies!

I'm loving...the deals I scored at the Lilly P sale. I definitely had to restrain myself...I thought the online sale was really, really good this year (and free of a lot of the troubles of last year's!) I picked myself up two new dresses. You know, because I have this terrible habit of collecting dresses, but never actually wearing them. I'm weird, I know. I got the Jonah, in this really pretty shade of purple.

And the Saemus, which I was just drawn to. Although I am worried that I might have gotten it a size too small and may need to stop eating for a week or two to be able to fit into it. Maybe it will be just the thing to help me kick this nasty Chik-Fil-A habit I have picked up since starting the new job.

Unfortunately I went back to poke around in the sale again today and am kind of crushing on the feels very cocktail-y but you could probably dress it down a bit with gold sandals. I'm also nervous about how this might fit or run sizing wise....feels like it may look "dumpy" if it is even a little too big. What do you all think?


  1. Gonna go check out your new dresses now! Glad y'all survived the earthquake. :) One woke up me last night just before midnight here in SF!

  2. I love all of the dresses you scored! I'm definitely crushing on the Mandy too!
