I adored the pleating on the skirt, especially how the stripes of solid black and polka-dotted fabric went along with the folds, but I wanted to give the top a little more shape, so I got to taking off the sleeves first.
I took off the left arm and the right arm and was left with this.
Woo hoo for sleeveless!! The only other adjustment I needed to do was taking it in just a bit. I took in about two inches on each side and it fit like a glove!
Paired with some Michael Kors wedges snagged on eBay last year, I had my ensemble for the day. I loved the way it fit and that the skirt part of the dress hit me at my hips.
After my day in my dress, I came home, threw on some pj's and got to cooking. And when I say cooking I mean this.
I'm a mac & cheese gal and I swear by these Trader Joe's white cheddar shells! But, it didn't end there...I was on a bacon kick still from yesterday (cue chocolate covered bacon), so I went to my pack of turkey bacon in the fridge, cooked up a few strips and threw them in along with some peas.
Insta-pasta! It was not only quick but healthy-ish, and delish too! Perfect way to ring in the week and the new season of Gossip Girl. Pasta is the guiltless pleasure. GG is the guilty one.
