another floral dress makes its way to my closet.
howdy y'all! currently sitting at a Starbucks trying out #thepinkdrink = strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk instead of water. it's interesting. you should try it. it has been raining NON-STOP in texas for weeks which has really forced me to take a blogging break. but i ain't complaining. i ate a lot, slept a lot, and finally read that book i told you about -- me before you by Jojo Moves. when i mean read i started and finished it in one day. it's been so long since i've come across a book that i couldn't put down. have you read it? #cryfest it's so sad but that's exactly what made it SO GOOD. i don't think i can see the movie without a towel.
about this post -- i don't own many maxi dresses or floral print = #purchasejustified. my life is about #shortgirlproblems (5' 2", i get asked this a lot) so that has always deterred me from buying maxi dresses. i always have to get them hemmed and ain't nobody got time for that. so thank goodness for @BananaRepublic petite sizes. the fit and length on this dress was perfect for me, not to mention that is also has pockets which is rare for this kind of material. lastly, i finally purchased my first straw/rattan bag!! when i saw my blogger babes Jen // @mrsjenfrick and Jenna // @bostonchicparty sport them, i knew i had to have one too! it's very tiny but fits your essentials.
lastly, i mentioned being featured in the Banana Republic #YourLifeStyled campaign in my last post. my blogging bestie, Ela // @Wunderbliss sent me a snapchat of one of my photos on a BR storefront in Vancouver!!! i am still so shocked and on a mission to find a storefront with either of my photos on them because i have nothing else to do. LOL, and i have hit up the only two BRs in Austin. LOL.
