Bubble Yum Dress

I'm back and rearing to go. I think I am hitting one of those "get things done" modes as of late. I picked up a sewing project last night that needed some attention and actually finished. It wasn't a large to do, but I still want to pat myself on the back... Yay me! Now maybe I can get back to bloggin' some...
Back to my favorite kind of post - purely about happiness in what I was wearing this day. I love this dress. Aside from the style being simple and comfy, it reminded me distinctly of the Bubble Yum Original package of gum.
It's that turquoise and pink combo that I can't associate with anything else other than gum. There are also light brown stripes to break of the pink and blue.
When I found it on the clearance rack at Target a couple of months ago, I grabbed it immediately. They only had Mediums and Xtra-Larges. At first I was distressed - I don't wear M in junior's sizing, but since the dress wasn't fitted (also I couldn't relinquish it from my grasp) I decided to give it a try. It should fit a bit baggier on the top, but the diagonal ruffle helps it to look like it fits right. I can't get enough of the flirty little ruffle at the bottom too, sooo cute! I think I'm becoming an enthusiast of the color pink. I find myself picking up more and more of it when I'm out and about shopping. 
This is one of my favorite drinks to put together. I seem to end up drinking a few of them whenever good Vodka is available. The frosted glass is key.
The month of August held quite a few celebrations for me. A wedding anniversary, a birthday and another mini vacation. Simple-tini's were a favorite indulgence, throughout.

And if you're lucky, after a couple of Simple-tini's you'll end up doing something silly like climbing out of the safety of your in law's backyard...Kind of like this:
Look at this view! Isn't it beautiful?

I also thought I would leave this little chestnut for your eardrums. I am in love with this duo La Roux. This is my favorite song on the album. It's such a jaunty ditty and the background sample reminds me of a little Casio keyboard that I had in the eighties. I took it everywhere with me. There were a couple of settings like piano, trumpet, flute and violin that sounded like synthesized versions of those instruments. I swear the violin one is what is being used here - Awesome! 
Cute, random video and dontcha love her hair? How can you not?!
