Why It Works Wednesday: A Sarong and ASummer Party

I have to be honest; I am STILL smiling about my Sunday afternoon sarong! I was sort of saving this fabulous piece of fabric for our Fall beach trip but I found an easy way to tie it up around my neck so that it works for a kid-friendly day at the pool!

I simply wrapped it around my back and then tied the two ends around my neck in a halter style. Don’t get me wrong, my quick tunics and Target cover-ups will still be summer swim staples, but it is nice to know that I can make this look work on the quick. And, just think, it only too me half of the summer to figure it out! Ha!

I also have to be honest that the ONLY reason that this Wednesday is working at all is because of a kid-swap. Did you know that four children play better together than three? Well, they do. So I was happy to take my friend’s five year old for the afternoon to play with my oldest, in exchange for a late afternoon play date at her house that will allow me to get ready for this evening’s Summer Party in a kid-free environment. Being home alone is SUCH a luxury! And, I simply cannot wait to debut this bright floral number that I picked up on a morning at Macy’s with my Mom. 

Play dates and party dresses make for a wonderful Wednesday!

Always A Bridesmaid

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

This phrase of failed fulfillment doesn’t really apply to me in the marriage department since my husband and I will soon be celebrating 7 years of marriage but the same cannot be said for some of bridesmaid dresses I have slipped into over the years. And, it certainly does apply to blue ball gowns that I forced upon my maids.


Until this weekend, I was under the impression that ALL bridesmaid dresses were one hit wonders. But, thanks to Target, this is just not true. I picked up this blue halter dress on the clearance rack this week. It was an amazing deal since it was an “Online Only Item” that was returned to the store. I loved the color, the cut, and of course the pockets! I didn’t even realize it was a bridesmaid dress until I looked it up online this morning!


It is also machine washable which I totally look for in a fun, fancier dress.


As I have mentioned before, we are sort of out of the wedding phase of our lives, but if you have upcoming nuptials or know someone who does, you may just want to mention this Tevolio to them. Especially, if you are in the wedding party :)
