avon calling
























i originally bought this super cute little avon floral number for myself to be my easter dress. i kept putting off hemming it and stuff and then one thing led to another....i don't know, i'm probably going to sell it. i don't love it as much as i did when i bought it. anyhoo, you may see it in my etsy store soon (hint, hint).
this is the time of year that i start working on my runner's tan. you can't really see it, but i got a pretty nice burn going on my chest and shoulders this morning. you probably can tell that my feet are about 2 shades lighter than my legs. i actually really hate it. by august i look like i'm always wearing a white tank and shorts and white socks. it's lame. that's the only reason why i lay out on my deck a few days a week. i feel so strange going to the pool with my stark white stomach. oh well. but while i don't mind taking pictures out on the deck anymore now that the new neighbors are here, i will feel odd chilling out in my itty-bitty bikini (ok it's not really itty-bitty but i do feel more exposed). but self-tanners make me itch and they tend to smear when i sweat. and there's nothing sexy and sultry about dark streaks all down your arms and legs, while scratching.

I like being white... its so much easier to just give up on being tan and go with the white look.

This dress is so cute!

I swear, as soon as I step outside, I get tan. This results in the weirdest tan lines ever! It looks like someone attacked me with a white paint brush! :) You may get a weird tan from running, but you also got your gorgeous gams!

Such a cute print on that dress! I thought the tan lines were from those fabulous boots you wear all the time LOL jk :) I hear ya about tan lines, unless I'm in a bikini, I try to stay out of the sun from 11 am - 4 pm. They are just too much work to get rid of!

I think this dress is pretty, I think the floral pattern is quite lovely. I say keep the dress :) I used to be so dark, but after I went to England, I don't tan as easily as I used to, phewww. You can wear tights to hide the different shades :) Hehe!

i used to tan in the salon, but i've really tried to stop doing that! i'm not a big fan of being pale though :( at least you have a lil bit of color with the runner's tan!

I love your dress! Especially the print. I hear you about the tan...I used to play tennis nearly every day for 4 years before I had surgery...and I still have the tan lines on my feet!! It's almost embarrasing taking outfit photos in some shoes cause it looks like I have socks on!

I love this dress. That is too funny (and a little sad) about the tan lines! Though I have to say I am happy all over again about my life long lack of tan. I seriously just prefer myself a pasty white!! Well, all except my legs, which are glaring, which I have tried to tan, but can't, so... ;-) You look awesome.

I remember last year i was determined to have white skin..because I thought it was so pretty...so I just stayed inside pretty much all summer. What a stupid idea! Good luck with your tanning :) and you look beautiful today..this dress is perfect on you. x
