Dress 16: Pardon Me While I Babble On Way Too Long...


Pigtails : a great way to avoid doing your hair.

Drake the Dog is such a media hog.  He has to be in every photo!

Dress - vendor in Lagos, Portugal; Sweater - Zara; Belt - AE; Boots - F21.

This morning Husband took Baby after breakfast and I got a run!  I ran for a full hour - just over 6 miles. It felt wonderful!.  Having been sick the past couple of weeks, I haven't been able to go full out - if I've been able to run at all. But today felt glorious!  I have to admit, I'm a bit of a workout junkie.  I love the high and I love challenging and pushing myself.  Plus, running and physical exercise help me to release emotion, focus my thoughts, and keep me sane (that and well...chocolate, a good scotch/wine, laughs with my girlfriends, and a greasy spoon breakfast).

Since having Baby, I'm not able to do a lot of physical things.  It's one of the changes/challenges that I've had to adjust to.  But Husband is really good in understanding and he doesn't kick up too much of a fuss when I ask him to take care of her. 
So, that's me.
Whether you have a baby or not, how do you stay sane?

I don't know about you, but I didn't feel like doing my hair or make-up this morning (so really, today's no different from any other day).  I just wanted to get my hair out of the way.  We all do it ladies - shove our hair in a ponytail and just forget about it.  It gets old, am I right? Lately I've been flipping through mags and found stylish models who have their hair in pigtails or braid(s).  It looks so chic, effortless, and like you're totally above it all but still really cool!  Yes, please! Now I'm not saying that I'm particularily successful at the "stylish pigtail", I'm just saying it's possible.

Picturesque Lagos, Portugal.

One of my favorite memories. ( I had a cane because of an injury).

I'm always reminded of eating sorbet in Lagos when I wear this dress (that's where I bought it).  I loved Lagos.  So beautiful and picturesque. I'm not so crazy about the dress, however, because the top is too big.  But I love the pattern, and I think if I altered it into a skirt it would be fabulous.  What do you think?  Alter? Trash, stash, or save?

  1. I need to be that motivated to get up and run. That's my new years goal! :)

  2. Good goal! Let me know how it works out!

  3. I love the color of that dress, and how you paired it with the shirt and belt! I am new to running, I was a dancer so I have always struggled! Good job! I am a new follower!
