I wore this outfit to spend the day with David's family & again on the plane home. Obviously, I adore this dotty Lucie Lu dress since I bought it...back when GB prices were reasonable AND they often had 50% off I was able to purchase this dress brand new for only $15. It's a fabulous year round dress...the last time I wore it was in the summer of 2014. I'm not sure why the white dots appear so grey here...there are white dots & two different shades of yellow. 
Hey,'s an orange!
I came back in the RV after taking a shower & Rye was in daddy's chair...even though other things were already occupying that space & we had cleared a place for him on the couch. Silly adorable doggie! 
Mandarins! My favorite...although you can see why I don't use these trees as a backdrop...much smaller, but oh. so. delicious!
David set up a dog run at his grandma's since her yard isn't fenced in...that gorgeous old tree is a walnut that we eat nuts from all year long. On this day, Rye figured out how to back out of his harness...& what did he do with his freedom?? He came to the back door & whined. What a good boy! 
Snow over was exciting since there wasn't any snow on the ground in Wisconsin. I managed to read 2 magazines & an entire book during our flights out & back. The best thing about flying. Kate picked us up from the airport & we immediately went home & took a nap (our alarm had gone off at 5:30 that morning)...then woke up hungry for warm food...Sal's Pizza sounded perfect. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Sephora eyeliner in Brown, Sugarpill eyeshadow in Love+ & Buttercupcake, a mixture of Nars lipstick in Cruella & NYX lipstick in Russian Roulette, & OPI nail polish in Little Red Wagon. 


  1. My God, is there any Gwynnie Bee dress that doesn't look fabulous on you? I thought I did well with what looks good vs. unwearable, but don't have results as good as yours. You seem to know your body very well & what will work with it. I love being a GB member, but unfortunately I can only do so when I get those special 3-months-for-half-price type of deals (which is what I'm doing at the moment). Keep posting, it's very inspirational.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment! I just get things I like even if I am quite sure they won't really work for me...then I add things to it to distract from that ;) I was a 3 at a time member for a long time, but I've been happier since going done to allows me to wear some of my own clothes & I usually always have at least one upgrade.
