But as I now realize, this plum dress was also a birthday gift from my mom, from a good handful of years ago. My parents were in town for my birthday, and they asked me what I wanted to do. I told them I wanted to go shopping in all the cute Rockridge shops I passed every day on my way to and from work. And so a-shopping we went. This dress is from Crush, a store I love as much for its pretty goods as for its massive sales. Oh yes, this girl loves a sale. I have been missing the old neighborhood so much, so it warms my heart to remember that fun day.
This dress is just light enough for a weekend on the edge of two seasons–though we’ve had some glorious cool weather for last week or so, this weekend things were warm again. But not too warm. As long as we can leave the windows open at night, I’m calling it fall!
