What I Wore Wednesday (WIWW)

Hoy es el ombligo de la semana, or as we say in English "hump day", it's funny because the Spanish translates to "today is the bellybutton of the week" :)

Let's start a tradition called, What I Wore Wednesday or WIWW.
Now please excuse my teacher look.  I have my glasses on because my eyes were irritated from contacts and my dress is all wrinkled.
Jessica Simpson Dress - Dillard's
Mustard colored wedges - Payless
Earrings - Francesca's
Note that I look mega tired in this photograph because spinning really did exhaust me this morning.  Also, note to self: work on my left arm because my right one is looking more toned and they appear uneven to me.  I promise I will do my hair next time. 

I love dresses, they are my favorite summer outfit! I have many dresses that I've accumulated over the years.  This particular one I am wearing is super soft and comfy.  It has a cute minimalistic pineapple pattern.  The last time I wore this dress I paired it with flat gold sandals, but I thought I'd try it with wedges today.  I think I like how it looks with the simple sandals a little better though. 
Pineapples are summery, right?

On a random side note I am anxious about this weekend.  I am attending my cousin's wedding about an hour and a half away from where I live.  I love dressing up and I love weddings, but I just have this anxiety built up inside of me.  I think it has to do with meeting new people, the males in particular.  I know they don't bite and I know I should be having fun, but being newly single it's a very strange feeling to interact with guys in a way that I have not in a long time.  Also, for some reason I'm starting to get feelings like when I saw the man who blasted from my past mentioned in Entre Pairos y Derivas. No idea where these feelings are coming from, I'm just anxious I guess.  ...And not making any sense apparently. 

I will leave you all with two last things.  The first is this fabulous picture of the recent Bridal Shower Gift I made thanks to Pinterest for the idea.  

All items purchased at TJ Maxx with the exception of the brown ribbon
Lastly, this lovely engagement story I read on a new blog I discovered.  Made me cry, it was so detailed and sweet.  Enjoy!
