The Case of the Missing Pencil | New Work Dress | Grab This at Trader Joe’s ASAP

Oh my gosh, the funniest thing happened at work yesterday afternoon. It’s been super busy for the past few weeks, and I’ve been pretty much glued to my computer screen from the time I walk in until the time I head out. Anywho, when I have to keep track of a lot of things, I have a system where I use a bunch of different pens and pencils, and I low-key started freaking out when I couldn’t find my mechanical pencil yesterday afternoon. I knew that I had just used it to write a few notes down, and then all of the sudden I couldn’t find it.

After looking all over and giving up, I just went about my business and tried to finish up my work without it. Before I left for the day, I went to the bathroom and that’s when I realized that I had the pencil up in my hair the whole time, HA HA HA! I was so caught up in trying to figure out some things that I forgot that I put my hair up in a bun and used the pencil to secure it. MYSTERY SOLVED!

OK, so I ordered a handful of dresses from Nordstrom Rack (which we call “The Rack” at work) because I’m on a mission to find a new summer work uniform. I wore one of them, a navy blue one with a floral print by Vince Camuto, and I have to say, 1) I may never take a normal picture again for the rest of my life now that I live with three feisty ladies (Connor, Rosie and Marnie), and 2) I quite like this dress.

I like the drape, how the material doesn’t get wrinkly (it’s polyester, which isn’t my favorite, but at least isn’t scratchy), the slight puff in sleeves (puffy but not too puffy), the pockets and the print. Side note, I’m into prints these days because they seem to do better at hiding the pet hair and random bits of food and sauce that I drop on myself. SIGH.

The only thing that I’m not crazy about is that the material itself is a little heavy for very hot days. I don’t see myself grabbing this dress if I know I have to walk around in 90-plus degree heat.

Oh, as you can see in the top pic, I styled it with a pair pink Nikes and a denim jacket, but I’m sure one could just as easily dress it up with some cute heels and a blazer.

One last thing, I stumbled onto these tomatoes at Trader Joe’s and right now they’re my favorite thing. I bought them initially because I thought they were cute. LOL! But they turned out to be absolutely delicious. So flavorful!

I can’t stand it when you bite into a tomato and it tastes like you’re eating air. I could easily smash the entire package in one sitting, and now every time I hit up TJ’s, I look for them. Grab a package if you see one!
