normally, when we have the kids clean their rooms, they ask us, "do we have to clean under our beds?" some days we say yes, some days we say no. most days we say no. well not anymore. i don't know why i was so naive, but my six-year old got the best of me. you could have clothed a small village with what i found underneath his bed. i could never figure out why he told me every day that he didn't have any socks. i thought maybe i wasn't doing laundry fast enough. nope, it just turns out that they were all under his bed, along with about 20 books, one dirty tupperware (gross), an empty bag of baked lays that he snuck up there (also gross), and three bath towels. treasures, i tell you. so from now on, yes, they will have to clean under their beds. but i just know that when they get home tonight, they will be so excited to see their "new" rooms.
on to my outfit. i know that in the "style me" posts, we are supposed to take something extremely ugly and make them cute. well, i have to admit that this dress isn't that ugly. i also have to admit that belting it isn't styling, per say. and i also have to admit that tearing the sleeves off isn't a diy project. but cut me some slack, i just cleaned the underside of my son's bed.
the original "ugly" dress
the colors are great, the feel is fun...i knew it had potential.
