I’ve been dreaming of the perfect gingham dress for summer and I’ve finally found it!
I picked this blue and white gingham dress up from Target and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s 100% cotton, so comfortable and breezy! The skirt is very full giving it a fun vintage inspired look. The dress is available in a small up to XXL!
Are you on board with the gingham trend? I can’t get enough!
I love making plans ,but when I do I usually ended up not following through with them oooor remixing them and doing something completely different than what I was meant to do (need to work on this!). Which means, even though the boyface and I went to Pittsburgh we didn’t do everything that I planned. I planned on going to the Phipps Conservatory, but the morning of I changed my mind and decided I’d rather visit the Carnegie Museum of Art! Good choice, if I must say so myself.
We spent a couple of hours exploring the halls of architecture, pop art, photography, and sculpture. I was thrilled when I stumbled into a small room filled with some of Kara Walker’s work! Something that I’ve come to love since I discovered her about a year ago. We also had free entry to the Museum of Natural history, but were both too hungry to go on for a couple of hours. Which brings me to the next plan I screwed up. we were supposed to have a nice dinner at some cutesy sit-down restaurant, but because we were both STARVING! after the museum, we decided to just grab something that was nearby. I picked out 5 Guys Which I had heard of, but have never tried. It was greasy, fattening, not what I had planned, but oh so yummy! After eating, we shopped! That’s something I did stick with! Well, sorta! We went to Ikea and picked up stuff for the apartment including cuuute coffee mugs!
We planned on going to H&M but I was way too tired and grumpy to want to go to. I know, I know! Surprised me too! But after sitting in traffic FOREVER, I just wanted to go home. So, we did and on the way we stopped at Target, because even though it isn’t H&M, it still makes me happy. Picked up some stuff there and went home to relax and play video games. Even though not exactly what I planned, it was still a nice day. I liked Pittsburgh. It’s a busy city with a lot going on. I look forward to exploring it more.
In other news, I think I’ve finally cured my insomnia! For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been having trouble sleeping. I found myself going to bed, but waking up 3-4 hours later, and not being able to fall back asleep until the next night. I don’t know how I was functioning on such little sleep, but I was. I finally, after people suggesting it for years, tried Melatonin. It’s a supplement that relaxes you and helps you to fall asleep and natural. Even though it’s natural, I still hope that after a week or so, my schedule will be regulated and I’ll be able to sleep a whole night through without it’s help. We shall see!
