Autumn Picnic

Hello there unexpected week off from the blogging world! I have seriously been hit with everything this past week, school, home, it's insane! I have been completely exhausted on top of everything, and last night, I had a meltdown. Yep, way to stay on top of everything Sara. Even though I feel a little mopey still, I am feeling better. I came home to a clean kitchen, which is amazing. I can't focus when the house is a mess, it is too distracting, and Kyle has been a sweetheart and managed to clean it up for me, and go to the grocery store this week. He is just as a busy as I am with work and school, and I am so happy that he took the time to help.

I honestly really wanted to wear this outfit for a picnic, isn't it just begging to be worn in a park, with some cider and pb&j? I adore this dress sent over from eShaki ! It is the perfect length and it is a wrap-style which is so flattering to "pears" like me. I honestly had a hard time picking out a product to review from their site because everything is so cute! All of their items come in sizes 0-26W and they can customize your item to your shape and style! Cute clothes that are guaranteed to fit? Can't beat that. I finally settled on this number because of the red-orange color that is perfect for fall. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this baby had pockets! Score! Too bad I only went to work in this dress and not to an actual picnic. I had to layer a cardi over it because it is chilly in our office and the longer length of the cardi looked frumpy, so I just tied it up and viola! I think it helped show off the pretty color of the dress too.

Right now I am loving this weather, and I am kicking myself for not getting any cute outfits in this week! It has been in the 70s all week and it has been amazing. That is what happens though when your week is choc-full of work, tests and birthdays. I did get to have the ultimate collage experience on Tuesday in my Shakespeare seminar though, I love that class! We were discussing the beautiful weather and the professor suggested we take the class outside for the evening, and we did! All 12 of us parked our butts right next to the pond, lovingly called "beer lake", and discussed Macbeth. I could have died, I love my school so much and I am going to miss it like crazy, but it is time to go, only two more months left.

Now I am off to finish cleaning the house, it's not too bad, and to finish laundry. I have a huge pile of it that needs to be organized, folded, hung and probably ironed. Joy. I think this calls for some diet pepsi and Gilmore Girls to make the chore a little easier, no? ;)

  1. Having meltdowns is never fun. That's good you're feeling better. :)

    This dress looks so cute on you. I love how you made it fall appropriate. It'll be fun to see how you style it in the spring/summer. Plus the bag is right at home with this outfit.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Oh yeah, Gilmore Girls makes everything better. I had a moment like that earlier this week...I chalk mine up to hormones..haha.. but glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Coming home to a clean house is huge brownie points for sure. Anyhow, loving your dress and your bag...could they be any cuter?! Shakespeare by the lake just sounds absolutely divine!

  23. Very cute dress. I'd wear it in an instant. And your shoes are quite cute, too.

    Life is hard sometimes, isn't it? The past two weeks I struggled with a heavy workload on top of a cold which really exhausted me. So I can relate. A little Emily, Lorelei and Rory is the answer...

  28. Your dress is gorgeous! I think I'd have a hard time picking as well but you did well! Yes, I would wear it to a picnic, although our weather hasn't been picnic friendly. I can't believe it's still raining and it's already October!

    Your ultimate college experience is awesome! I would have loved to discuss Macbeth near a lake! Must have been so beautiful, even better when you have a professor who's great and lets you guys have a little discussion outside.
