Dress Like You Mean It

Happy Good Friday everyone.

Some of you have a long weekend, some of you may even have a week or so off, and again others may have to go in and work their butts off. So sorry. I feel you on that front, that's for sure. I know how it is to work odd hours and on days everyone else gets off and enjoys time with friends and family. What I don't like is people who have no idea what kind of an awful feeling this is to tell everyone that they understand. Just can't stand it. *I have only two very close friends who know this feeling because they both work or have worked crazy hours too; the rest is used to the weekly drag of "regular" hours*
My field of work required tons, and one thing was to work on weekends, holidays, and at odd hours. You get used to it and live around it but it is hard. It is even harder to see friends having fun, planning trips and such whereas you are stuck at work or stuck in your own little world because you just can't make those plans or have that much fun. :(
Anyways, these days (so far) are over...and I am happy I can spend Easter with friends and family. Yay! At last. 

But I digress...as usual these days.
Spring is in full bloom...and it's my month of shopping...and even though I am not going out to buy fancy, cute things I am allowed to stay online and browse the online-window shopping sites...And as a girl, I love dresses. I may not wear them often but I still love them. I wish I had more opportunities to wear them, but a girl can wish, right? So here are my favorite dresses I found online, and kinda liked. ;) 




my favorite dress

 


These H&M dresses are mostly made out of recycled material which brings me back to this post. Not only do I recycle and take care of our precious world, but I also try to use the right materials if possible. There are tons of "green" outfits available but some of them, let's really be honest here, are just downright gross. I would not even touch them. They may be all natural, but still, natural doesn't mean ugly and just yuck! *insert a shivery girl here that can't stop shaking* So when I found these (and touched them too - yes I went inside of one of those stores and touched the real material) I was surprised. It felt good, and I could see myself buying them. All. Granted, and yes, I have to mention this here, they could have done a much better job. I think someone was rushing to get things done in time? Who knows. That's what I get for looking closely at all the stitches and ends. Either way, I just loved these recycled dresses!

There are tons more dresses out there for every girl the right one. This post would be endless if I continued. ;)

Do you see a common theme among my dresses here?
I do, I think. Or hope. ;)

 
I linked up, did you?!
Thanks Kori for reminding me. ;)

I love the all white one... SO pretty! I'm also really jealous - I have no access to H&M... so I'm stuck patiently waiting until the US online store opens up sometime next summer.. grrrr.

You don't like chocolate?!?! Just kidding. I can't judge...my husband won't eat it either. The reason is actually due to Easter. When he was young he ate an entire solid chocolate bunny and got sick...never to eat chocolate again.

Happy Easter, friend!

I love these dresses. I'm so excited to go to San Fran and shop at H&M, maybe I'll see if I can find these dresses.

Heather Pranitis said...

OMG! These are great...however, I can't pick just one -- I like several. Hmmm, I might just need to head to over the H&M store at the mall next weekend. Thanks for sharing.
