    I got 2 of the Old Navy swing dresses the other week and have been wearing them almost every day. Comfy, flattering, and looks great with sneakers and a denim jacket.

      I have one from last year in garnet and a short sleeve version in black and I LOVE them! Looking to get more colors this year!

    I had the most perfect Clarks wedge bootie about 2 years ago. I wore them until it was just unsightly. I have trolled ebay for another pair but have yet to find my size. But I will keep searching because they were so comfortable and practical, yet SO CUTE. I learned my lesson and always give their site a quick glance.

    On what you’re drinking now – the lemon ginger version is the hangover cure of your dreams. I recommend keeping them stocked if you ever deal with post-night-out nausea.

    Yes to Kevita. We get them every week and mix with sparkling water at breakfast in a white wine glass.
