Janelle In Real Life: a tribal print dress and a lame weekend.

7.22.2013

a tribal print dress and a lame weekend.

Oh, Monday. Back-to-reality day after a weekend of fun. Only, this weekend happened to be slightly less fun because (1) I was studying for finals the whole weekend and (2) I sprained my PINKY TOE. If that's not the lamest injury you've ever heard of.... Seriously though, don't laugh because it was actually painful! I swore that I had broken it because I was pretty much dying of pain when it happened (and I've experienced kidney stones and childbirth sooo I feel like I've got a handle on pain). Anyway, until now I did not know that an injured pinky toe would inhibit you so much.

On to more important things. I loooooove the whole tribal print thing that's going on and this is my first time wearing this dress... it's been sitting in my closet for weeks so I'm glad I finally broke it out! Tell me watcha think!





Where she got it: dress: F21 // cardigan: target // necklace: F21 // shoes: urban outfitters

And can you believe that yet again I was told by someone at church that I look like I'm a teen mom? Whatevs, I'll show everyone when I'm old and still look 7 years younger than my age.

Also, did ya hear Kate Middleton's in labor? Yay for royal babies!

  1. LOVE the dress!! I can't believe it's from F21 (and the necklace, too)! I feel like everything fits me wonky whenever I go! Clearly I need to go and try again. Stopping by for FundayMonday!

  3. Cute! That cardi makes the dress look so relaxed and perfect for a casual weekend and that necklace is gorgeous! Love how it pops against the tribal print.

  10. I like the big turquoise necklace against the black. I just did a post on a tribal print top and mint jeans! Kind of same color combo ;)

  15. Cute dress! The necklace looks good with it. I'm right there with you about looking like a young mom. When I was pregnant with my oldest, I had a drs. appt. and when making the next appt. I mentioned I couldn't make the time she gave me since I had school. The nurse asked where I went to school, and my reply was that I've been a teacher for 5 years and almost 30. That was 20 years ago, and I've gotten many comments just this summer that I don't look old enough to have a 20 yr old! My daughter doesn't look 20 either. Some people comment that they think we are sisters!
