Time For Fun

What is the best reason to dress up? To please ourselves. To add happiness to our lives. That's my belief, anyway.

I'm coming off a hard week, full of contentious court appearances. I'm utterly wiped out, physically and emotionally. What can cure that? Fashion. Wearing pretty clothes that inject joy into my veins. I'm a fashion-junkie.

Here's today's playful creation. I like the flirty dress, rich purple tones (echoed in my lippy) and feminine poses. I snagged a sparkly little bag and hat at Urban Outfitters, rare accessories for me.



  1. Oh my gosh! The whole outfit is very cute but I LOVE that hat! You are a hat woman for sure.

    I'm glad you have a way of dealing with all that stress.

    Hope this week is a bit more easy going for you.


  2. You look lovely in this PANK colour, Ally, but I agree with Suzanne - that hat is awesome on you!

    I will be doing some fashion therapy in my closet tonight to gird myself for the coming week. Good luck, my friend.

  3. Sorry you had a rough week, but it's always nice to revel in something you love, like you do with fashion. This is such a cute outfit too!!!


  4. It is really amazing how much stress we have in doing what we do and just like you I find that getting my 'girl' on is the #1 stress reliever. After some tough court appearances, especially during a trial, I find that getting dressed as pretty as possible just makes the stress melt away. I had a recent 5 week trial, which as you know, requires long days and devoted weekends and almost all weekend long I was dressed as I prepped for further days in court.

  5. Sorry to hear you've had a rough week. I find that fashion is a great stress reliever too. I always feel better when I'm wearing something colourful. Speaking of colour, I love the pink accents in your outfit. That little dress is very cute - and very you - and I adore the necklace and hat! xxx

  6. I absolutely love the pattern and color in that dress, it is so much fun! And that hat! You're making me want one like that! I hope this is a better week my friend.

  7. Sorry you had a rough week … Glad you got some time to play!!!

  8. I hope this week is better for you. :) That dress is really pretty, and the hat is a lovely touch as well!

  9. I'm so sorry to hear you had a rough week- ugh, court. Sending you good vibes and love this dress!

  10. I am sorry your week was hard! This is a very cute and very you outfit, it even matches your blog! I am a sucker for flare skirts/dresses in general. The hat reminds me of Lorelei Gilmore!

    I forgot to mention that we answered your horror motorcycle question in our Escape Room post. It was a good question and I figured others might chime in with suggestions. The only one I have seen is Mandy, but there are a few out there! I hope this week is better for you.

  11. Sorry your week was hard- I can imagine your job is utterly draining with very long hours!
    The outfit is super cute! I like it very much!!x

  12. I don't think we need a reason to dress up other than a desire to, hehe. Gorgeous dress, so You Ally!
