I wore this outfit to this year's Friendsgiving. I broke with my usual   tradition of wearing autumn colors on Thanksgiving to wear this super comfortable modal blue stained glass dress. The fit of this was extremely flattering & I liked the just below knee length. It seems like a summer pattern to me, but it has long sleeves. This was my first Tart dress, & after feeling this dress...I want to try more. 
I got both the cardigan & shoes on sale at Savers for $5 each. 
Dogs! Molly & Sadie are Angie & Toby's dogs...& the fluffy pup on Angie's lap is their foster dog, Shirley. 
So much delicious food! Angie made almost all of it...I brought bourbon pecan sweet potatoes that were too sweet for me. Angie spatchcocked the bird & it was fantastically moist with crispy skin. 
After dinner we played Game of Things, which is similar, but better, than Cards Against you make up your own answers instead of using cards. Since there were 11 of us, we had to alter the rules a bit & have the reader pick their favorite answer instead of going around the table & having people guess who wrote down which answer. 
I love the ruffles around the edges of this cardigan. 


  1. Hello from Norway! Long time reader, first time poster. Just thought you would like to know that you have a reader from a country far away :)
    I am married, with four children, and I don't usually read blogs, but I love the dresses you wear. I have many dresses from Igigi, usually a size 22, and they make the most beautiful dresses. I would love to wear big necklaces and earrings, but I am a "comfort before beauty" kind of gal, and to me they are in the way. I especially like old jewelry, crosses and religious symbols. What also caught my eye reading your blog, was the friendship you have with Kate, you two obviously have much fun together.
    Happy holidays from Janne, Norway.

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment, Janne! It is fun to know someone from so far away reads my little blog. Igigi makes some marvelous dresses & I've been a fan of theirs for many years now. I don't normally find my big jewelry uncomfortable, although I do have a couple of over-the-top flower necklaces that poke at me. Kate & I do have a lot of fun together...I am so lucky to have such a wonderful friend.
      Happy Holidays to you & your family!
