I've had this style of dress previously in red houndstooth & multi colored circles. I've loved them...except for the black saddlebags on the hips. Why?! Otherwise...fabulous dress with gorgeous colors, great fit, nice length. 
I bought these floral leggings earlier this year, but this is my first time wearing them. I LOVE Torrid leggings. I normally buy them in size 5, but I can also wear the 4. David had the excellent vision to pull these up to a capri length which really made me like them more with this dress. Why is my big toe trying to escape my left sandal?
The weather was too darn hot for Concerts on the the girlie & I checked out Barolo...a newish wine bar we'd been meaning to go to. We each had 2 glasses of wine & some nibbles. The olives were delicious, plentiful, & a bit citrusy...served with some delightfully thin homemade crackers. The caponata was packed with eggplant & other yummy veggies...but my favorite thing were the can you go wrong with cheesy fried risotto balls?? We had this room to was marvelous...everyone was sitting in the bar room or out on the patio. The patio is fantastic...we plan on going back when the weather is milder. 
The above sad girlie face brought to you by a terrible Muffin. This was a recreation...the original was SO much worse. Kate is planning on leaving me to hike the Appalachian Trail next year for 6! months! Yes, 6! months! Otherwise known as 1/2 a year. She was talking about it & I said something about her not going...& she made the saddest face & said...don't you want me to realize my dreams?? Of course I do...I'm just going to miss her A LOT. Like A LOT A LOT...what will I do without my girlie???
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeshadow in Urban & Jilted, NYX eyeshadow palette in Brights, Sugarpill eyeshadow in Asylum, Mon Ennui eyeshadow in Year of the Dragon, Bite Beauty lipstick in Aubergine, & I'm in the Moon for Love nail polish by OPI.
