Fashion Friday – Flirty Floral Dress for Spring

Happy Fashion Friday!

This week as flown by again.  I’m counting down the days until Tuesday when the Hubs is done with tax season!

Couple of random updates…

My knee is starting to feel better after Makena accidently hit it last Saturday.  I decided to test it by just walking Wednesday, then doing the elliptical Thursday.  It didn’t seem to get worse, so hopefully I’ll be back to running today.  She hit it from the side and it felt pretty bad Sunday and Monday.  I’ve got to be honest with you I was in a pretty bad mood earlier in the week without running!  Isn’t it crazy how addicted you can become to it.  I knew though that the worst thing I could do would be to run on a sore knee and trigger some long term injury.  Fingers crossed all goes well today.

I actually went to the store and bought bologna for Rhett to eat.  I cut it up and mixed it in his bowl and he started to eat a little more.  I’ll honestly do anything at this point to get  him to eat. Anyone have any ideas?  First time I’ve ever bought bologna and boy does it look and smell disgusting.  I must really love that dog! lol!

I’m giving away a really fun QALO ring prize back (including some beauty essentials!)… don’t forget to enter here.

This weekend I’m looking forward to seeing my SIL, nephew and the Hubs family (who are visiting from Pittsburgh) in Colombia Saturday.  Sadly the Hubs can’t go because of work, but I decided to go by myself!  Sunday I’m hoping to go to church and make us a nice Easter dinner.  I’ll have a recap on Monday!

Did you miss this?

For Fashion Friday I picked a dress that will be cute for Easter and beyond.  It’s a fabulous floral dress for spring and will easily be one I will wear through the summer.

Floral Dress for Spring from LOFT / Running in a Skirt

The best part is it’s 40% off at LOFT right now!  They are having a big Friends and Family sale this weekend.  I adore their spring line, so make sure to stock of now.

This dress is fabulous because the fabric wears well.  It will be great for running around or even summer travel.  It’s fitted but isn’t overly tight or anything.  So many dresses in the stores right now are so oversized, that it’s refreshing to find one that is actually flattering!

Plus the navy, cream and pink is so universally flattering.

The detail is also really cute with the tie waist and flutter sleeves.  They are just whimsical enough.

I also knew I had a winner when I came home and the Hubs said… “yes… that one is perfect for you!” 🙂  At least he knows my style!

Seriously though, check out the LOFT this weekend! It’s a great sale on their new spring stuff, which you would normally have to pay full price for.  My all time favorite jean jacket is also on sale.  It’s classy and has a bit of stretch… so check it out.  This outfit with the yellow shirt is also on sale too!

Happy shopping and have a truly blessed Easter weekend, dear friends!

    So glad your knee is feeling better! When our dogs would have no appetite we would try to feed them little hot dogs, boiled/baked chicken, and peanut butter smeared on top of something (such as a dog treat.) I hope this help you and little Rhett out <3 Happy Easter!

    The dress is beautiful, and I’m so glad your knee is on the mend. That’s so good that you were cautious about running. I know what you mean about having to take a break from running. It can be tough, but your body will always thank you so you can come back stronger.

    So pretty! I actually just ordered a floral dress for my upcoming baby shower and I’m so excited. I LOVE florals!

    Easter lunch will be at my Mom & Dads this year, my arm is still in splint frim the break so im taking something simple, ( cole slaw & honey glazed carrots in the crock pot) we all pitch in with the side dishes!
    Love the floral dress & the colors are awesome !
    When my pup kids don’t eat, I’ve been known to add bone broth (Madeas) or boiled chicken & I have braised lamb… (which I would NEVER eat) it’s all for the Fur kids!!
    Hope you & your family have a Blessed Easter!

    Hey Julie, I’m glad you found something for Rhett to eat, and at this point you are probably not worrying much about him not eating the most healthy choices, which I totally agree with. In fact, I am in the same predicament as you with one of my own dogs. I would caution you though about certain high fat foods such as bologna that can lead to bouts of pancreatitis which is terribly painful and also diarrhea. If you check the pet food isle in your local grocery store, you will likely find dog food that is refrigerated. The food comes in bags of little soft pieces or in rolls that look like salami that you slice and offer to your dog. Most dogs love it. It smells like human grade (though I don’t believe it is) and contains either beef or chicken depending on the one you choose (and also veggies). You can see the carrots and other veggies or rice in the rolls. It’s not cheap, but it’s not terrible either when you are feeding a small breed like Rhett. Please know I do not mean to butt in or even act like I know it all, but I have been in rescue and with Friends for Life for many years dealing with the senior and special needs animals. So I have a great deal of experience and I wanted to share just a little bit of it with you and Rhett. I would also make one final suggestion to keep his little tummy as healthy as possible. Offer him a teaspoon of plain Greek yogurt as a probiotic in case the change in foods causes him to have any gastro issues. Hope you have a blessed Easter!

      Hi Shelley! I should have just asked you what to do!!! I found a can and one of those “stews” that he has finally started eating, but will progress to the refrigerated food when necessary. I also added some yogurt in his food too. He seems to like it. Thank you for the suggestions! He is having a better weekend.

    You have been rocking the florals this spring! Great choices and you can’t go wrong at the Loft! Have a great Easter weekend!

    I love that the dress is a floral but the pattern is such that it almost becomes a geometric–such a modern update! Have a great weekend, Julie. I’m glad that you r knee is slowly getting better!
