A Little Crochet On A Summer Dress
Hello everyone! It's been a few days. I think this post may make it to publication. I actually had worked a couple of days on another post and then decided it was too boring so I deleted it. I almost went to sleep reading it! So, I hope you will enjoy today's post more and not find it a "snoozer!" I'm styling a pretty summer dress for you that has delicate shades of blue stripes and just a touch of crochet for interest.
The dress itself is actually quite simple. What first caught my eye was the crochet neckline and the band of crochet on the bottom half separating vertical and horizontal stripes. You know I love blue anyway and the crochet aspect was just icing on the cake! I looked at the dress awhile online before I ordered it. The fact that it was really marked down also helped!
I'm styling the dress for you with and without a blue jean jacket and with two different styles of shoes so you can get some ideas if you would like to try something similar. I had to run out and get these pics in between rainstorms this evening. We have been having heavy rain that is in the forecast all week. I will miss seeing the sunshine!
Here I'm showing the dress with sandals that are more of a dove gray color. The dress has some light blue that is more of a light gray so the dress and shoes go well together. I just think the colors in this dress say "summer." Today's temps are on the cooler side with the rain, however, so I was kinda glad to get back inside!
I wish I had more news to share with you. Every day seems the same anymore. I was telling a friend today that I don't feel like I am truly useful these days. I do the dishes, make the bed, put together a few meals and do some laundry. And that's about it! So, getting a new summer dress was kind of exciting!
A Few Additional Tidbits
For those who are interested, here are a few items of interest. I've been creating a few more cards using paper crafting and that gave me some pleasant moments recently.
And my little seedlings that I have been carefully nurturing in my dining room are now planted in containers on the back porch. The Mr. bought flexible plastic fencing that we have wrapped around the outside to try and keep critters out. Would you believe I looked out yesterday and saw that two little chipmunks had weazled their way inside the netting?! I went out and yelled at them as they scurried down the porch wall. I'm sure that will take care of the matter! 😏
And, finally, the Mr. and I took a walk around Biltmore Village the other day. There was nobody around which is highly unusual for Biltmore Village! As you can see we were taking precautions!
The Mr. snapped this photo of an interesting tree in the village. It looks like a grown-up Bonsai tree, doesn't it?!
Here's hoping I haven't put you to sleep today but, if I did, at least I gave you a good nap! Take care, wear your masks, social distance, wash your hands and leave me a comment! I love hearing from you.
Until Next Time,
