Wear More Dresses February Update



Operation ” #WearMoreDresses2014″ has been more of a challenge than I expected it to be. If you remember my goals for the year then you know exactly where this is coming from.


Since about a month has passed I think it is a good time to update you on my progress.


It has been hard. At the start of this I only had 4 dresses in my closet. One of which I will never wear again. It makes girls who are board thin look pregnant. I won’t be entering into any pageants, but I still want to feel good, and like how I look.



I knew I need to add s a few dresses to my closet, however dress hunting has been rough. Until a week ago I wanted to quit this silly goal and say that I already completed it, just because shopping has been so hard. I have gone shopping a few times, and turned over all the racks in all the stores I went to, only to leave empty handed.


I guesstimate that last year I wore a dress 5 times. This is a gross over estimation because I actually only remember wearing a dress twice.


Last weekend I finally had some dress shopping success, when I wasn’t actually dress shopping. I left with two new dresses, and now I feel this goal is more achievable. I also went out and bought a pair of black leggings, so that I can wear my summery dresses in the winter.



The dress pictured is one of my random finds. Sweater dress, matching my new hair for $10. Win! Paired with a tank top and leggings, and it’s warm enough to go out in. Also I will now be making silly faces every time someone takes a picture of me. It makes me feel better.


When I first started #WearMoreDresses2014 I didn’t think I would instagram every dress I wore. I thought there would be so many that it would be overwhelming. Ha, that was a joke. So I think I will be instagramming all the dresses. Except the one I wore on Valentines day because I didn’t take a picture. No worries, I am sure I will be wearing it again.


You can play along too! Just take a picture of your dress, or you in a dress and use #WearMoreDresses2014. Then we can get inspiration from each other, and our different styles.

Another Week in Photos

Yes, Friday was yesterday. I didn’t miss it. I enjoyed it with my family. Daddy was home after a week of training. That means you get this update today.


I set a goal to wear more dresses this year. I decided that maybe some of you would like to play along as well. Hence the creation of #WearMoreDresses2014. If you are on Instagram or Twitter feel free to play along. Tag your photo’s with this hashtag, so we can follow along in the fun.


Here I am in the first dress of the year.





Then I wore my second dress of the year, AND went on a date with daddy. Look at me go with those goals.


We went the the Fit SD party hosted by San Diego Magazine. It was a good time, and much more than I had expected.



I altered one of our regular family recipes to make if vegan. I was unsure how it would come out. I am pretty adventurous with recipes, and I am confident in making changes, but these were some big changes. I was just concerned. My exact words to S were “dinner will either be amazing, or terrible. I’m not sure which.”



When the results came in, dinner was both edible, and tasty. It does not taste the same as the meat version, but I did not expect it to. It was good all on it’s own. Vegan Cottage Pie for the win.



Sometimes you just have to stop and admire the beauty around you. It is easy to do when you find this next to you.



Lastly, I asked you, my readers to give $1 to help the YMCA support low income families. I did, did you?
