Excuse me while I do a happy dance because my laptop is finally back in my possession!!!!! 

You're probably wondering how I lost it, and no I didn't lose it myself but TSA did and I'm thrilled to have it back because I thought for sure it was a goner. So if you've been following me on Instagram you know that I've been traveling for work the last few days. When I was packing for the trip, I decided my Tory Burch tote was large enough to carry all my necessities and that I wouldn't need a carry on if I put my laptop in my checked bag. Well somehow during my layover and connecting flight my luggage got misplaced in the Chicago airport :( I arrived in Dayton, OH with literally nothing besides the clothes on my back, my purse and a half empty bag of almonds :/ This has never happened to me before, and I was traveling alone, so you can imagine I was a little frazzled! I went to baggage claim and they had no idea where it was but knew it was somewhere in Chicago, and I was told it would make it on the next flight. Well I think it took a little more searching than that because my luggage didn't make it to my hotel until 6pm the next day and by that time all my meetings were over so I didn't even need it anymore! Long story short, I'm never putting my laptop in my luggage again just in case my luggage does get lost! I think the only good thing about it was that I had a legitimate excuse to raid Target for new work dresses and pajamas! :)

Ok on to the outfit... this J.Crew dress is not only comfortable and cute, but it's so different than any other shift dress I've owned. I love the extended sleeve that's a different pattern and texture than the rest of the dress - it definitely helps make the dress interesting and stand out from the rest. Also the angled zippers on the front...yes. They add just the right amount of edge to such a classy shape of dress. PS it's on SALE!! For sizing, it does run BIG. I ordered a small and it's almost too big on my size 6 frame. 

Have a fabulous Thursday! Thanks for reading.
