Happy Wednesday!

Here I am.. flashing my pasty legs to the blogger world! haha... I probably should've used my Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs before taking these photos but had to keep it real for now. ;) There has been some much needed sun here in Seattle and even though we've been granted with the lovely weather.. it's still really chilly so that means my legs will not be seeing sun again until probably middle of the summer (because that's how it is in Seattle) or when I go to Hawaii!

So I received this lovely dress from eShakti and I like it because it's cute to wear for Spring and Summer! There were other great choices in their selection but this was something sorta out of my 'style zone' which is always a great challenge! Plus I love the retro look with the colorblocking. I felt kinda like in Pleasantville.. at least that's what I told my sister and husband. 

Since I had picked a neutral color for my dress, I knew I had to pair it with some colors! One great thing with eShakti is that they make it really easy to choose and use their standard or custom sizing chart. I also used their custom styling feature so I was able to select to have a wide v-neckline and for the full skirt length to be above the knees. I love the way it fits and really the best part of it all are the pockets! I don't know why but I absolutely love pockets in dresses! It's such a cute detail plus I can keep my hands warm!
