I'm not feeling nearly as many holes in my wardrobe these days, so I mentioned to my stylist that I have two events coming up: An Art opening at Heartwood Gallery on August 22 and our 19th anniversary. I actually told her it was our 18th because I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that it's almost 20 years that we've been married and that seems impossible. I mean, we're just kids! We have an infant! And, oh yeah... a nearly 16 year old...
|Donna Morgan Ashlyn Dress|
This is the first thing I put on from the box. I would never in a million years pick this dress off the rack for myself. But when I put it on, I felt amazing. The way it drapes and the pattern really keep the eye from settling on any problem areas. It's comfortable and easy to move in, and it would be appropriate for so many occasions, not just date night. This is a clear winner.
|Papermoon Shepherd Crochet Dress|
When I saw this dress, I loved it, but I was afraid it would be too small on me. A knit lining makes it very forgiving and I really love it. I can see it styled in so many ways and I tried out several right away. Too bad it is summer in Arkansas so even in air conditioning, it is sweltering hot. I don't think the beads of sweat dripping off my nose really sell the look, so you don't get to see it with the dark tights and boots I tried it with. But I will show it with the inevitable cardigan...because I will probably never get rid of my inner librarian.

|Kut from the Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean|
I was surprised by another pair of jeans, but these are a clear win. I like the wash, the cut and the fit. The only thing that has be concerned now is that I seem to be a bit between sizes. These felt great the first time I put them on, but then felt a little big the next time I put them on. So it might be time to size down, but I'm not sure. I kind of wish I had both sizes to compare at this point.
