Yes, today is another sick day at Chez Joanna. We’re all really tired and cranky. Baby is especially not happy and kept us up most of the night. By the way, I wanted to thank all of you for your email and comment help and well-wishes. They really helped cheer me up and motivate me to get better – not to mention get dressed this morning! Unfortunately no, I’m not looking good. And yes, I am Oscar the Grouch today. Rawr! But I couldn’t spend another day in pajamas, as tempting as that was, and not bring you the next dress installment. I know you’re just dying to know what’s in my closet *sarcasm fully intended*. So here it is, dress eight.
I originally bought this dress for hot summer days, but quickly learned that it’s better for warm spring days. Why, you ask? Well, it’s make from a silky material that does not breathe. So, in the heat it just sticks to your skin and makes you feel gross all over. But otherwise I love the casual, vintage feel of it. I think of puttering around the garden, and drinking iced tea in the backyard when I wear this. Wearing it today has given me much needed comfort, because I’m still feeling poo-ey and sucky today. But I had to be warm, hence I paired it with leggings, a cardigan and leg warmers. Before we move on: trash, stash or save? I’m thinking save…how about you?
Now I know they may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love leg warmers! They’re so cozy and I love the cheese factor! *singing Olivia Newton John* Let’s get physical, physical!

What piece of clothing makes you nostalgic? Is it a pair of jeans, top or sweater? What does it make you think of?
