Tube Dress Day Time

This summer tube dress makes me feel like I’m working in the medical industry. The more I see it, the more I think this outfit looks like an outfit a doctor might wear. Maybe the white blazer gives the doctor-like impression. I just need a stethescope to complete my disguise. Wish I could find a stethescope at Goodwill (hehe).

The dress itself is actually a tube beach dress. I bought it a few years ago but it’s too long for me. After I tortured the dress by washing it and putting it in the dryer 5 times, I finally got the length I wanted. Poor Dress! She’s tough like the owner :)

I just love the bold color of this dress and thought I could modify it a little bit for a cool (almost hot actually) spring weather  look. So I can show off my lil legs and my lil sandals. When the temperature drops at night, the dress can easily pulled down to cover my legs.

I just wrap a belt around my hip and pull the dress to the top to shape the dress like a peplum dress. I hope she forgive me for what I have done to her in the past.

Yellow Top and Jeans Skirt

This is another simple outfit I like. I like the lines on the skirt. Definitely it helps elongating my height. We took this picture on our family trip to Lake Oconee. For some reason I love water. And here goes my story…

I still don’t understand why I’ve always had dreams about water, especially the ocean. I feel the loneliness, calmness, mysteriousness and anger of the ocean. The dream about water came over and over in my sleep in the past. This is one of my favorite dreams:

I was walking by the ocean. This was not like a regular ocean but more like a big inlet. It was such a peaceful inlet surrounded by green pasture and green short hills. The inlet itself wasn’t that deep, just bellow my knees. Instead of sand, green grass and small colorful flowers comprised the ocean bed.

I remembered on sunny days of spring-like weather, the temperature was warm and I could feel the warmth of the sun touching my skin. I walked through the shallow water to feel the softness of the green grass that touching my feet. Once in a while I reach down to pick some tiny flowers.

I realized how beautiful the scene was and I decided to lie down under the water. I looked up at the clear blue sky and felt the freshness of the water covering me and the warmth of the sunshine penetrated through water and onto my face and body. I fell asleep in this peace and happiness mind.

I will never forget how peaceful that dream was. Every time I see an ocean or lake I am reminded of my dream.

Can anyone interpret the meaning of my dream?

We took this photo before we went to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo after Christmas. Love that movie, even though it has a slightly different ending than the Swedish version.

Back to my outfit, I like this Chinese inspired sweater. I wore my old black cardigan inside the sweater. There’s a hole in the back of the cardigan but no one sees it. I am just too stingy to throw it away because it’s so soft and warm. That’s a really neat advantage of layering, right?

I think these are the right pants for my body type right? Boot cut! They elongate my legs and balance my thighs. Don’t forget to wear high heels with it. It won’t look right if you wear flat shoes. It makes my legs even shorter and more slouchy? “Slouchy Legs” (have you heard that term before? hehe…)
