aqua tye die dress

I got this dress from my parents for my birthday & I have to give credit, they have gotten REALLY good at shopping for me! I went through a stage when I was a preteen where I hated everything anyone picked out for me - like throwing the clothes out of my room in the hallway kinda hate.  Granted, middle school is an awkward & dramatic time...

But nowadays, I get so excited to open up clothing gifts my family!  I love the shape, pattern and neckline beading on this dress.  It is perfect for summer days and nights.

In other news, how does it happen that everytime I'm supposed to take a few vacation days to relax, I end up sick??? I feel like that ALWAYS happens to me -ugh! I took a few days off to enjoy the summer weather and do some fun things last week, and this morning as I go back to work, I have the worst cold :(

At least I have this pretty tie dye dress to wear today.  A good outfit can make me feel better even on the worst days :)
