You know when you want something? Like REEEEEALLY want something and then you start seeing it EVERYWHERE?! I saw this Shabby Apple Santanna dress (FOUND HERE) and fell in love, but my timing was off and we (ahem – OK JUST ME!) were trying to be more conscientious of our spending habits. So I refrained, knowing full well I’d buy this stunner Shabby Apple Santanna dress, but it needed to wait.
Suddenly, summer was over and it was time for back to school shopping with my little Kindergartner. We hit up a few stores and got a few essentials, and then it hit me: Why am I not buying something for myself? Who says “Back to school” shopping is only for the kids? I deserve to be pampered too! Really though, I just wanted that darn Shabby Apple Santanna dress. Finally. I own THE DRESS.
And I did it – I finally got the dress. FINALLY.
Can I just say… it was worth the wait. SO worth the wait.
Hallelujah for a dress with sleeves and a super flattering waist. No alterations or undershirts necessary here – I’ll be fabulous on my way back to school….or while I sit at home watching tv and eating ice cream. Either way, right?
My dress has more blue than white (refer back to the picture) and I LOVE it. Extra tie-dye goodness is always a good thing by me!
So a reminder to you mamas: When it’s time for back to school shopping – don’t forget yourself, because you’ve survived all summer long and you freaking deserve it. Need I say more? Now pass me that ice cream.
