sundress on a country road

dress // hat // shoes c/o // ring (old - similar)

Happy Wednesday, this week has been flying by for me! We have been staying super busy with the home build still going on (promise I will get a full post up soon! until then follow along on instastories!) we are spending every free moment we have working at it. The crazy thing about being so far north is that our summer nights are incredibly long. We still have full day light at 9:30 or 10:00 at night... what! Something we are totally not used too and it throwing our game way off!

On a fashion note, I bought this dress as I was leaving Arizona at Target for $29.99! I was so in love with the soft pink color of the material and the ruffled cold shoulder sleeves that it instantly stole my heart. For 30 bucks, I couldn't possibly say no! 

I feel very Julia from Gal Meets Glam while I stroll along the country road in a pretty maxi dress and sun hat. Although, her photos are from fields in France my small Canadian town will do just fine for me! 

One of the biggest challenges I faced internally when moving was, what am I going to do with all these clothes I have accumulated over the years now that I am living in a small country town? 

Well I have a new outlook on fashion and wearing my nice clothes. I was visiting with my cousin who has a 2 year old precious girl. I noticed my nice niece was always running around in pretty dresses and rompers playing outside while stomping in the mud. I asked my cousin if it was a pain to wash her clothes all the time? She responded with 'Nope, I figured if I always worried about her clothes getting dirty she would never wear any of her super cute outfits, so I figured why the hell not just wear them?' That statement sunk in hard, why had I never thought that way? Sofia has so many cute dresses or tops that I am 'saving' for the right time. Well, here it is. The time is NOW! Why save them? For me, why save my pretty dresses and not wear them because I am in a small town? Why not wear my face up sandals or wedges?

So here has it, I get up and get dressed everyday. Yesterday I was sweeping the new dusty half build house in my white jeans, I am running errands in sundresses, and I am using my clothes (or what I can find of my clothes at this moment!), no more 'saving' for the right time, the time is now!
