My kids (husband) bought me a beautiful silk shirt from Anthropologie for Mother’s Day.
Really, it was beautiful.
I tried it on and really, really liked it, but I couldn’t think of a time when I would wear it.
Yeah, for the rare times that my husband and I get to go out, but for the most part it would just sit in my closet and look pretty.
Pretty, but lonely.
I don’t want my clothes to be lonely.
I want them to be loved.
So, I got this dress from Boden instead.
Remember the flower wallpaper I mentioned in this post last Friday?
This dress reminds me of it.
I can still wear it out for a date night, but can also wear it with the kids or for a night out with my girl friends!
It will be loved.
home is…finding a happy medium.

Steph – this is a topic I’ve been thinking of blogging about for the past week! My husband LOVES sun dresses. He loves to take me shopping for sun dresses. I like sundresses – I have several and, like your silk top, they hang in my closet and look pretty, year after year. I have no where to wear them as #1 – it only gets warm enough to wear a sundress about one week per year here and #2, I’m not likely to go anywhere that one week that is appropriate for dresses. Ugh. So, I just find the cutest jeans, hooded sweatshirts and boots I can. So glad to hear there are other gals out there like me!
Happy mediums are lovely; I much prefer that phrase to the word “compromise”. 🙂
