Remember when you were excited to get mail and by mail I mean actual handwritten letters. I might be dating myself with that, but those were the days. My sister is probably the only one who sometimes surprises me with a proper handwritten letter (God bless her). She knows how much I appreciate them. I acutally had penpals, remember those? Oh well, these days I don’t much look forward to letters in the mail because for the most part its bills and now that I’ve signed up for e-billing, it’s just junk, spam or some other thing I would rather not bother shredding. Packages though are different. I usually look forward to packages (I won’t right now get into the we missed you, so you have to go pick it up yourself and stand on a very long line at the UPS center part of it). But I digress, packages are hardly ever bad news. And I’ve been so blessed lately to get some really cool things come in the mail. 
A little over a week ago I got a package from Andrea Pitter of Pantora.  My intial reaction was fear. We’re blog/insta friends and I love her shop and she’s great but what if the dress she sent me didnt fit or what if I didn’t like it…that would be ridiculously awkward. Well, as you can tell, I worry more than is ever necessary. I absolutely LOVE this dress. I don’t wear many form fitting dresses because if they’re not done right they can be unflattering. This dress actually holds you in very nicely, very flattering and with that bold houndstooth print, you don’t even need much to make it sing. 
I like to pair opposites, so instead of dressing it up, I went with sneaks and even kicked them off cos thats how I roll. 

ANYHOO, just had to share and give major props to Andrea for making it happen and doing it well. You can show her a little love by checking out her shop- Pantora.
Don’t Fret, its a SHORT work week.

    Yes I remember letters, every now and then I try to write to someone so they will write me back. The dress does look lovely on you, and it's cool that you wore them with canvas shoes. Happy Monday to you, too!
