Purple bag dress

Last night I set my alarm clock for 6:30am. I intended to wake up at 6:30 because I had to be at work by seven. This morning I woke up at 8:30! I was so late and I was the one opening the shop today! I looked at my phone and had four new text messages, two missed calls, and a voice mail all from my boss. So I jumped out of bed, brushed my teeth and literally got in the car. No washing the face, no changing out of my running shorts and baggy T shirt, just completely got up and left. Then I get to the coffee shop and realize we have no ice! Right when I realize this, about four customers come in asking for iced drinks. What a crazy morning. Thankfully my boss wasn't upset and understood, and thankfully my dad lives so close to the coffee shop because he was able to go to a convenient store and pick up some ice for me.

I bought this dress one size too big, and it fits like a bag on me! Luckily I found this belt in my closet so I could at least give myself a little bit of a shape. Besides the fact that this dress is too big, it is extremely comfortable and I love the beading on the sides of the shoulders. It was only $7 at H&M!
