But until I can get my act together with finishing several half-written-but-still-need-photos-and-citations posts, here's a quick one. I'm finally leaving the house, to go somewhere other than the hardware or grocery stores! What can I say, it's been too hot to go anywhere fun, and with the sometimes multiple trips per day to Lowes on the weekends, no time or point to dress up.
But tonight I'm going to my first volunteer meeting with the OCRCC. My sister in law is on the board of directors, and asked me to help out with planning the decor for their annual charity auction this winter. I'm excited to do something to give back to the community, especially since women's issues are important to me. Plus, decorating for events/weddings/dinners/etc is something I find really enjoyable!
And finally getting out of the house also means I have an excuse to wear this cute ikat Anthropologie dress that has been sitting in my closet for two months, unworn. I ordered it back in May, for my Chicago trip, but it ended up being back ordered for 3 weeks, so I haven't had a chance to wear it yet. But I'm loving how breezy and light weight the material is, perfect for summer, even with the sleeves.
Shirt Dress: Anthropologie (Ikat Frequencies), Brown Belt: Target (the dress came with a matching belt, but I prefer something with more contrast), Brown Mary Janes: Nine West, Necklace: Target, Super Pale Legs: courtesy of the too-hot-to-go-outside NC weather
Have you done any volunteering lately? It's been far too long since I've done much other than donating money to causes (I've only volunteered once this year for the Weddingbee Weekend of Action, before that, last spring in the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans was the last time I volunteered my time) and I need to get out and do more.
