Pea pod

Hi Lovelies! Half way through the week - WAHOOO WEDNESDAY!! Tehehe. I am a smidge bit excited. Tonight - weather permitting - I am taking pea out to the ball game. I am hoping this helps work fly by.

Todays outfit - guess what!?! My dress that I ordered last Tuesday from ModCloth arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon. I had to give it a twirl and test it out. I must say - I am in love!! I wanted to try something fun with my hair for this look so I used Kate from Scathingly Billiant's (love her blog!) simple bouffant updo tutorial. I still need to work on perfecting it. I had to use a butterfly clip (yes the one with glitter and wings) from the 5th grade to help hold it up. I need to invest in some more bobby pins, haha.

My first official ModCloth purchase (other than stylish surprises) and I am hooked. I love the cute collar, lace, and mint green color. All of my favorite things in one dress!!! Also - the dress is great for twirling :]

Like the SweetPea-pod? My moms friend from work sewed it for us. It is from a baby carrier pattern and works so well for pea. Haha. She will let us do anything. I put her in it and she is happy as a clam :]

Have a good day everyone!

  1. Awww, pea is so freaking adorable! And you look amazing in this dress!

  2. I love the dress, the color really suits you! Modcloth is just not even fair, I spend so many hours browsing the site and bookmarking dresses and stuff I want but I've yet to buy anything from them. I would squeal like there was no tomorrow receiving a modcloth package. I love your updo and that picture of you and your doggie is all sorts of adorables.


  3. LOL! She definitely looks so happy to be swaddled in that thing! How adorable. :))

    Allison, you look ridic' in this, ridiculously charming and beautiful! I lovelovelove it! And I can't even imagine it on anyone else now. I also noticed your little cameo brooch (or is it a necklace?)! I'd love to see a closeup of it. It goes so well with the dress either way.

    I hope you and Pea get to make it to the ballgame and I hope she wins that cute contest.
    P.s. I remember butterfly clips and started to giggle when I read that line. heheh
