This has got to be my favorite ever dress. Some of you might be saying "Rachel it is a normal blue dress chill," but that just means you don't understand! It's so simple and classic and summery with the perfect details; seersucker material, a high neckline and buttons down the back (which I didn't photograph for some reason?)
It's a good thing I like it so much, though, since it's probably the single most expensive thing in my closet. I got it from American Apparel.
Unfortunately, American Apparel items seem to run a bit small, at least in my experience, and I had to send this one back. I'm waiting for my size large now! It's pretty unfair that cool clothing stores don't sell bigger sizes, though. As someone who knows the joy a simple blue dress can bring, I really think girls of all sizes should be able to dress their best.
I took these pictures with Travis at the (state) capitol building. I haven't taken photos here since it was warm last, and we've restarted our tradition of eating a cheapo cheese pizza in the capitol park. Like a picnic, but less healthy!
As I have been whining about, I have a lot of things going on in my life right now. Which is good, I like being busy. One of them is a new laptop. Normally this wouldn't be a big change, but have any of you guys used Windows 8? It makes me feel like an old person! I've finally gotten the hang of it, but I went and left my charger over at Travis's, so I used my old computer (sticky keys and all) this week!
