Dress a Day in May: Resale Haul

In preparation for DADIM, I’m collecting bargain dresses that need a new life and a little TLC. Get a sneak peek of the dresses before I make any changes.


Last Dressy Day in May- SJ Day 31


Well here we are at the end of yet another DADIM! Congrats to all the ladies who completed the challenge. Wasn’t it so fun? My final dress is a repeat of the navy number I wore the second week. Thought I would let the other dresses join me for my final picture by getting a shot in my closet. ¬†I’m sure a lot of those patterns look familiar. Thanks a lot for the encouragement and sweet comments you all left me. Already looking forward to next May!


So much catch up to do! -SJ Days 16-24

Crazy days ladies. Crazy days!! It’s been a very busy couple of weeks and I’ve had no time to post. I’ve enjoyed keeping up with all of your amazing looks and now it’s time to post mine. I figured a gallery would be easiest.

Springtime Sun Dress -SJ Day 14

Here’s another garage sale find ($1.50) from last weekend. It’s super comfortable and light fabric. (glad it’s not windy today) Now all I need is a little more color. Gotta get out in the sun more!!

Dressy retreat in Texas Hill Country- SJ Day 12-13

I went on a retreat with my mission trip team this weekend in the middle of nowhere Texas. It was absolutely beautiful and absolutely devoid of cell coverage. There was lots of running around and team building exersizes, so I opted for a skirt with shorts underneath for Friday. Of course, an essential accesory for any active mom is a baby sling or carrier. I took both, but my Maya Wrap baby sling got the most use as seen in the photo below. Evie loves it! She gets rocked to sleep in it almost instantly.

Day 12
Black tank and skirt from Gap. Black chacos. Maya Wrap. I wore a jean jacket in the morning when it was cooler, but by this time it had warmed up a lot and we were running around.

Day 13 I celebrated my first Mother’s Day! Here I am with my sweet daughter Evelyn Marie Menefee (2 months old today!) Sadly the sun came out right as I was taking this photo and her face is all scrunched up from the bright light.

in {the} Navy – SJ Day 9


I LOVE navy! It’s such a lovely versatile color. This dress is another maternity holdover filling in for my lovely navy dresses from last may which I don’t think quite fit me right now. ¬†This dress is comfortable, fits well and will¬†definitely¬†be back again this May though it won’t look exactly the same…


My accessories make me love navy even more. The earrings are a favorite of mine made by a friend from church and the necklace is newly acquired from one of the weekend’s garage sales.¬†GORGEOUS! And only $1. A winning combination!
