FLIRT....

PSSST....I am hiding behind a trailer at work on my lunch half hour....
 
GOOD MONDAY MORNING!!! I am hoping you had a great weekend full of fun things to do!  I had to work Saturday and Sunday. On my lunch break, I hid behind a big trailer at the far end of my work parking lot and shot these photos.  My friends,  Beverly and Carolyn at work, know about my secret life of fashion blogging and I appreciate their discretion when it comes to keeping it under wraps.   Does everybody at your workplace know about your blog? 


It was freezing out but I wanted to show you my ruffled dress that I found at Goodwill for $5.99.  I wore this dress last Valentine's Day but did not intentionally wear it again around this time.  I guess I wanted something feminine, a little flirty and fun.  (not that I am flirting with 80 year old men at work, ok maybe a little but it's because they are so sweet and I truly care for all of them) 

I just got these boots back from Pete's shoe repair which is a local place that has excellent service.  They repaired these boots and my vintage shoes that needed a new heel.  It is priceless to find a shoemaker/repairman that is quick, has great customer service and is affordable.  Who are you flirting with these days? No, I did not flirt with the shoe repairman but only because he was busy in the back fixing shoes.

P.S. don't woryr petal..you weren't being too personal, stuff like that doesn't bother me at all, unless it's from a man, haha! We're both women here, so nothing to be ashamed about :) Yes, I still nurse, though less now that she's almost one and then done for good, hoorah! It's a wonderful bond for mother and child, but it comes with it's down sides too. Also helps the stomach to go down after pregnancy ;) I hope you have a wonderfully beautiful Valentine's Day!! xo

This is the CUTEST dress! I love it. I also like how you styled it. I literally LOL when you mentioned your secret life as a fashion blogger because I keep my blog a secret from my co-workers too and even my friends. Only a select few of my family and friends know about my blog. I have not figured out why yet. lol.

Happy Valentine's Day, Dawn. I love the ruffles! Some of my coworkers sort of know that I have a website - but I work in law enforcement and it would probably be pretty awkward if they actually visited it. Yikes! :)

I LOVE that dress! Where was I when these were at Target? I am experiencing outfit envy.
