If you missed it, I am selling quite a few dresses and some swimwear from my great closet cleanout. I will have more for sale next week, probably shorts and other summer type clothing.
Day: Sunday, July 26, 2015.
Where: Church, then to La Madeline for lunch.
That said, as per usual with some Boden dresses, the hips started off a bit snug because the material hadn't stretched out enough to be super comfortable. One hour after wearing the dress, the material had stretched a bit and it felt just fine!
Outfit Details: Bow Shift, Boden; Birkenstock Madrid Sandals, sold out in this shade (Amazon.com has the shade in these sandals and J. Crew still has some of the mirrored Madrid available); Sunglasses, Anthropologie.
Anecdote of the Day: We have no kneelers at church right now since the actual church is being renovated. We have to meet in the basement for mass instead. I told Mr. Dina to go back into the house and grab pillows for the kids to kneel on, and he was all, "they can handle the bare floor." That sounds like something I *would* have said. In the end, sense prevailed and we decided to bring them for the kids, but not us. (Our knees were fine.)
Outfit Details: Vacationland Shorts, J. Crew Factory; Tank, J. Crew Factory; Necklace, J. Crew; Sunglasses, Anthropologie; Sandals, Madewell.
Anecdote of the Day: We walked to the back of Harris Teeter and there on the floor was spilled beer, everywhere. I joked with one of the employees that I needed a long straw so I could started to help them clean it up. He informed me that it was Corona that spilled. Mmmm, Corona. :-)
The shorts are reversible, which is stupid cool, but the silky material rides up when sitting down and it required me to adjust a few times. Blegh. I hate adjusting!
Outfit Details: Tee, WalMart; Shorts, TruthNYC (Marshall's); Birkenstock Madrid Sandals, sold out in this shade (Amazon.com has the shade in these sandals and J. Crew still has some of the mirrored Madrid available); Sunglasses, Anthropologie.
Anecdote of the Day: Looking for a place to sit and hang out with other swim team members was redonk. Even though none of the tables/chairs had anything to indicate they were occupied by human beings, I was repeatedly told by pinched face people that the entire tables/chair were occupied and that my five would have to go somewhere else. *When I say entire tables/chairs--I am talking tables that could fit fifteen.* I guess a smile or some gentle kindness would have helped the situation, but as per usual for the DC area (God bless my home and its influx of selfless folks, lol), it was all ME ME ME not YOU YOU YOU first and foremost. Thankfully, a friend from the pool felt badly for us and let us pull up with him and his amazing wife and girls. See! I can crowd in (and am happy to!). I guess in the end I was at the table that was the best one, anyhow, just had to find it.
Outfit Details: Tee, Target; Skirt, Lands End Canvas; Shoes, Boden.
Anecdote of the Day: My friend wasn't sure if she was going to have us come over that day or one of the others, but I read that it was "National Lasagna Day," so I texted her and said, "well, it's national lasagna day, which means my offer of lasagna is even more appropriate." She insisted I come that day after seeing that.
The Esska sandals always feel great, though they look fairly dressy, they can be worn for long walks due to their cushioning and shape.
Outfit Details: Adelaide Dress, Boden (the Blackberry Dress is very similar); Sandals, similar Esska sandal from Amazon.com; Sunglasses, Anthropologie; Necklace, Madewell (darker version is here).
Anecdote of the Day: I took Rex with me to the Winesday, and we took the bus there and back. He loved it. I am so glad I found a way to get there and back without having to drive myself back (I am too much of a lightweight to drive after the tasting). I hadn't realized there were that many buses that could get us to Old Town, but apparently there are quite a few. :-)
Outfit Details: Harbour Island Dress, Boden; Sandals, Madewell; Necklace, J. Crew; Selina Sunglasses, Boden here.
Anecdote of the Day: The walk was beautiful, but buggy. This prompted me to buy lots of bug spray at Whole Foods. Guess how many times I have brought it with me since last week? If you guessed zero, you would be right. Score one for attentive momma. :-/

Okay, all, that's it for today. Talk with you soon!
