the red dress

Red Dress OOTD - 3Now that my body is ever-changing, I have come to the conclusion about a couple of things in my wardrobe. One is that I really love the colour red. The second is that I hate mini dresses.

Pre-prenatal, I used to only wear dresses.  Most of my frocks tended to be long sleeve, but with a shorter hemline. This would allow me to be able to wear them all year and throughout the changing seasons. If the weather was cold then I would roll down my long sleeves, put on thick leggings and chunky boots. If it was warm, my sleeves would go up and I would forgo leggings and stick with flats. Now, I no longer want to draw attention to my legs. I feel as if I am getting bigger everywhere, and so I want to cover up my pins and put them away until the baby arrives. 

Red Dress OOTD - 4This will probably be the last mini dress that I purchase until after Spring. It will not be my last wine-coloured dress, however. If I can no longer drink it, then I will have to resort to wearing it. :-)

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
