A Revisited Dress Is The Best!

Happy birthday to my big sister Emily!! Today she turns 27, and my parents and I are going out to Grand Rapids to celebrate with her.  I'm starting to feel the holiday joy.... it starts with my sister's birthday, then Thanksgiving, and then comes my dad's birthday, and then all of the Christmas celebrations.  I'm allllmost ready for Christmas music... but not yet (gotta wait until after Thanksgiving).

dress: Delia's ca. 2006
sweater: Gap
boots: Alloy
ring: Stella & Dot

I wore this outfit a week or two ago on a day that it was randomly warm-ish (warm as far as November in Michigan standards go).  It's great to rediscover clothing pieces that you haven't worn in years.  This dress is one of those.  I bought it back in high school when I attended a fall wedding and have been looking for opportunities to wear it since.  Now that I'm working in an office, I have the opportunity to wear dresses more often!  So I wore it to work.  I love this dress.  It's really comfy, it's not too short, and the detail at the upper chest/neck area is gorgeous.

This week is a short one!  Only two work days and one school day before Thanksgiving arrives Thursday!  My Women In Literature class is canceled this week, which will give me extra time to finish up the current book for that class, Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel.  I saw the movie a long time ago, and now I get the opportunity to read the book!  So far, so good!  And apparently this blog post is all about opportunities, since it seems I'm using that word a lot today...

Happy birthday to my sister!
