Do I Really Need That Outfit? Yes!



Good news - my mom continues to make progress! She is still in ICU, but doing better each day. I can't thank you enough for your many prayers and kind words.

Given how how things have improved for Mom, I feel that I can return to somewhat lighter fare in my blog today. The other day, I broke my shopping hiatus and ordered the Schooner Dress from Vineyard Vines and the white Whale Sandals. I justified this purchase because the shoes were on sale and then if I spent a certain amount, the shipping was free. My husband doesn't understand this logic, but it works for me. ;) The dress is so comfortable - perfect for warm evenings after a day at the beach! And, the sandals go with just about anything. So, how can you argue with that??

Hope everyone is having a good week. The weekend is almost here!

You're right, you needed that outfit!

I'm checking everyday to hear more about your mom. I hope she continues to heal and that the doctors and nurses around her are blessed with great knowledge and kindness!

Very cute dress. Men just don't understand justification when it comes to clothes...but they sure know how to justify a new golf club, a computer game or a good cigar!!!

I am so happy to hear that you mum is getting better every day. You all must be so relieved. I will still keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

BTW, I think you must definitely go and buy that dress-it will be good for you to have some retail therapy!

Take care and best wishes for a fabulous weekend,
Natasha.
