Pretty Springy

Blog Everyday in May Challenge, Day 6: What do I "do?" 

I'm a mom, and I have such joy in that!  I've read articles where women have felt like they've lost their personal identify once they've become a mom, but I don't feel like that's the case with me at all.  I am totally ok with being "Grant's Mom."  I'm so proud of the little one my husband and I created, and my heart swells thinking about my sweet little boy!

Now to my outfit: I found this dress and wasn't sure about it at first, you see it's strapless, but when I noticed it was $.99 and from the Gap, I figured I should definitely try it on. I'm glad I did, because I really like it! I recently saw Tara wear this color combo and thought it was fun, so thought I'd try it with this dress. I think the result is pretty perfect!

I'm also linking up with Ada for her virtual birthday party.  Happy Birthday Ada! 

Right after I took these pictures my order from Stella and Dot arrived!  So excited! So, I obviously changed out my bracelets and wore my new ones instead!

Cardigan: Target $3 (thrifted)
Dress: Gap $.99 (thrifted)
Necklace: Very Jane $12
Bag: Coach
Shoes: Fergalicious $30


  1. That dress looks great on you! I'm glad you gave it a try because it was such a steal! And I love those colors on you that necklace is gorgeous :)

    I'm glad you like to identify yourself as Grant's mom,I can't wait for that feeling one day!

  2. I love bright colors and this look adorable on you!! Those bracelets are super cute!

    Take Care,
    Mandy Jean

  3. First of all Thank You for Participating in My Virtual Birthday Party & for even wishing me on your blog. =)

    Secondly, you look beautiful as I also mentioned in my blog. The dress is great & now that I see it up close I like the tiny pleats' detail. Great job pairing it with the Teal, Cardigan. Also your bracelets are Gorgeous!!

    Last but not least, I can totally identify with being a Mom. Having a little one is The Best Feeling in the World!! I even changed my Blog;s name because of Vivian.

    Have a Great New Week, Ada. =)

  4. I love this outfit, Ginny! The pink and aqua look awesome together, and I especially love that necklace. I am always so impressed with your .99 cent thrifted finds.

    Having my daughter certainly changed my identity in a way, but I think in a very positive way! I wear my "mommy badge" with pride. :)

  5. adorable outfit dear

  6. I love this color combo! Turquoise and coral/pink are perfect!

  7. I think people handle having a whole family with kids and husband differently. It sounds like you have it all under control. I hope I get to handle it well after having kids :)

  8. That dress is awesome - you definitely made the right decision in trying it on.

    As for being a mom - I actually still have a hard time thinking of myself as Z&R's mom (and I have two kids!). I've never been a particularly maternal type, so it's an identity that is still evolving for me. I love my two little people and I think they are amazing, but I still very clearly have a separate identity outside of motherhood....if that makes sense. :)

  9. gorgeous Spring colors pretty lady! You are such an inspiration to me, being a stay at home mom is my dream job!

  10. This is such a cute color combo, I love the bright pink dress! And I can't believe it was only $0.99! (oh no, now i've got that thrift shop song in my head...) And i'm so glad to hear that you love being a mom :)

  11. Love the colors in your outfit - so pretty!
