I'm loving the chance to still wear sleeveless dresses on occasion with this sunny late summer in Seattle, and decided to have a dressier day today for work. (My office is casual but there's a lot of leeway.)

This dress is a NAS piece that nearly got away. I loved it, but I felt I had to be disciplined and take just one sleeveless dress, the Eliza J. one. But my mom and sister, who shopped with me, loved this one too. When my fiancée and several YLF forum members saw pics and expressed positive feedback about this dress, I thought twice and went back to get it. I'm glad. I love wearing this color, and the wavy seams on the dress make me feel pretty.

Lucy's accompanied most of my pictures lately. To go anywhere with semi decent light I'm usually commuting with her, or else going outside where she wants to come. Hopefully you don't mind my having a photo buddy most of the time!
