THREADS 5.2.12

This is currently one of my favorite dresses. I love how easy it is to wear and how bold the print is. The morning I wore this dress, Jon walked into the bathroom and said, "You're looking simply positive today!"...We joked about buying him a tie that had negative symbols all over it so we could cleverly say, "Opposites attract" like the true geeks we are. :)

AND for the heck of it, I think I was in an odd mood this particular morning, I decided to part my hair down the center. I've never done it before, but thought it would be neat to try. Everyone definitely noticed, even Jon's grandpa! I don't know if I'll stick with the new part, but it was fun to try and I very well might pull it out of my back pocket again. ;)

This is also a rare occasion, because I'm showing my legs! I've always been a full-leg-coverage-girl. I get super cold really easily and always felt awkward in shorts, so I always wore tights, maxi skirts//dresses or shorts with tights if I needed to. I'm working on feeling more comfortable with the leg showing idea...and believe me, it's not because I'm white as the moon-- I've fully embraced that feature! Fair skin forever!

  2. I'm digging the center part! No matter what I do with my hair it manages to fall back into a center part, but I know it's fun to switch it up! The dress is super cute too. Great pattern!

  3. Stunning! I love your hair, and it is especially pretty parted down the middle. I am always afraid to try that. It would be so cute to have your man wear something with negative signs, haha. These photos are beautiful

    I've been hating showing off my legs too lately. It's a new hate and I'm trying to get myself to not go down that road but I'm always afraid of my behind popping out somehow :P !
    You're rawkin' it tho, you look great!
