Rainy Day Outing

One week ago from today, I had was lucky enough to have a babysitter for Baby Girl because I had a fun girls' day downtown.  

I had been looking forward to it for so long and had been saving a special dress for the occasion.  When I woke up that morning, it was pouring down rain and I was so bummed out.  I didn't think I would be able to wear my new dress.  I had it styled with some cute metallic, linen wedges that would get destroyed in the rain.  Just when I was about to give up hope, I tried the dress on with my wellies, and decided it was the perfect look for the day!

The dress is from Joules, a stylish British company that everyone should know about.  Their clothes are so well priced, well made, and well designed.  I know you'll love them as much as I do.  

I picked this dress because of its stripes, pockets, and exposed back zipper.  It can easily be dressed up or down and is perfect for so many occasions, or non-occasions like picking your kids up from school and running a bazillion errands.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Joules dress collection.

They have great clothes, accessories, and of course, wellies.  I have this pink polka dot pair locked and loaded in my shopping cart!  How cute would they be on a rainy spring day here in Charleston?!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because Baby Girl is going to her grandparents' house this weekend.  We have a kid free weekend in our own home.  I'm not going to know what to do with such a quiet house.  I don't even feel right when I'm at home and she's at school.  It's such a strange feeling.  I plan to enjoy said strange feeling to the fullest!  Have an amazing weekend and we'll talk soon friends!
