CURRENTLY THE SPLIT & TBB STYLE LINK-UP



I got this pretty dress (Sopronao Brand from Nordstrom) several months ago as I thought I was going to wear it in Vegas but decided to save it for summer vacation. What I did not realize was that the split was cut a little higher then I remembered and how was I to know that I would be wearing it on a breezy summer evening? 



So, here lies the problem. Every time a breeze would come up, it would fly the split up and you could see way too much. My husband joked that I would probably never wear that on a windy night again. Maybe if I was younger, some cute little boy shorts underneath would work. Needless to say, the dress was pretty comfy and I loved The espadrilles and choker necklace with it.

 Trying to hold it down, lol
You can still get theses darling espadrilles HERE
(they got [43] 4 3/4 star reviews!)



About a week later, I saw the same dress on a 19-year-old I thought to myself; maybe that's the problem, I was just too old we are such a high split, ha ha!


AND You're getting another Twofer this week as for the first time EVAH I am linking up with  Anne at In Residence for her
monthly "Currently" Link-Up.
What have I been waiting for, right??


snacking on: ice cold watermelon chunks, fresh mozzarella balls, and cherry sour balls.


These are from our day trip to Traverse City when we where on vacation..it was during the "Cherry" festival.

anticipating: every step of the house build! Framing stages currently




borrowing: if ideas from Pinterest count, then I'm borrowing ideas from there always!

admiring: my mom! She is just such a doll. Here she is on the right in her cute little fedora on a day she and her friend Chris went to a winery. Can you believe this beautiful lady is going to be 70 in November? I always tell her I do not believe I am aging as well as she has. She continues to be stylish, hip, has an eye for a beautiful art and decor and most importantly is a sweet as they come! Today these ladies are in Chicago and going on the Architectural Cruise.



purchasing: starting to purchase new Decor for the home. I am a person who likes to build room decorations off some accent pieces. I found this beautiful wave picture with blues and I'm leaning towards some rich navy, just love this pom-pom velvet navy pillow.


What are you Currently up too? Wearing skirts that fly up? LOL
Have a Happy Day all you Sweethearts!!

Now Let's Link-Up your fabulous style and head over to The Blended Blog and see what one of our beautiful ladies is styling and loving!

  2. Bwah, hahahahahahaha I love the meme at the end, YES we are all tired of seeing underwear! Your dress is just as beautiful on you as any 19 year old btw but I feel you with the wind. I don't have anything with a split anymore but even my skirts and dresses that aren't maxi length blow up on me all the time when I'm at school doing car duty. And trust me, no parent or child wants to see that! It may not even seem windy and then I go out there and it's like a wind storm rolls in, ugh! Those espadrilles are super cute too.
    That mom of yours is just as precious as they come and no doubt you are her "mini me" you'll age just as gracefully and beautifully.
    The house is getting very exciting and I can't wait to see how you decorate it!!!
    Happy Wednesday gorgeous friend!

  7. I once constructed a room around a tissue box - kid you not! I'm loving that new house; look at that sweet mama!! Girl, let me just tell you mozzarella and cherry tomatoes have been my JAM this week. You know what? I just love you and I hope your Tuesday is half as awesome as you are....go on with that split girl the boats are rocking because you're such a sight! XOXOXOX

  10. First off.... Love the dress but that darn split would get me too !! At least you have great legs ! Secondly.... I haven't had cherry sour balls in what seems like 20 years and now you have me wanting to go find some :) and last that blue pillow and picture in frame is perfection. I can't wait to see more of what your decorating plans are. Happy Wednesday !

  11. What a fun dress. A high split can be such a fun addition, except on those super breezy days when you feel your putting on a show, lolol. It looks amazing on you. House framing, Eeeeekkkk!!!! Can't wait

  12. I'm skipping past the fashion today to say I'm so excited about your house!! You are going to love this process as much as we have - I hope. We've been here 5 weeks now and I'm beginning to really figure things out. Using a piece of art or something as your starting off point is such a great idea. I once used a pitcher as my inspiration when we built a house years ago. :)

  13. Both you and your mom - and her friend! - are beautiful! I can't imagine not having my own mom not in my life anymore. Just last night I had to call her with a problem. She was out of town helping my brother and his family, but she still talked to me and was able to calm me down. Or talk me off the ledge! Ha! Whichever! Stay beautiful Big Sis! And hold that skirt down! LOL! Mucho lovo to you today!

  14. I remember slit skirts in the 90's and living downtown I was always holding it so it wouldn't fly open! I love the print of your dress! You look so pretty! So exciting that you new house is well under way!

  15. I have been loving that Soprano brand from Nordstrom! I got a purple lavender lace dress to wear to my cousin's bridal shower from the brand and just love it. This dress looks fabulous on you and you are not too old for the high slit! I love it!! Also, I already love the items you picked out for the new house...that navy pom pom pillow is everything!

  16. I had to laugh at the wind story....but that even happens when my skirts are long enough. Although I find maxis way better to contain when it's windy!!
    But never say that about being too old for it---you are the most vibrant woman ever, and everything looks great on you!!

  19. How fabulous is this dress on you, and that tan!!! I can share your pain on wearing a flowy dress on a blustery day, the struggle is definitely for real - yipes! And so so so exciting about the framework going up on the new house. I bet it feels so much more real now <3

  20. Indeed your mom IS beautiful! But this is no surprise to me. ;) And congrats on the home project...praying it goes quickly and smoothly for you. Of course I love this dress and I say it's perfect for you, split and all. However, I understand the dilemma with lengths and splits. And just in case you don't see my replies to your comments on my posts...you're a wonderful encourager and the type of blogger I aspire to be. have a beautiful week my blogger friend!

  23. Girl, I have had the hardest time with dresses blowing all over this summer! Add in trying to juggle a baby and needless to say, I have probably flashed a few people around here more than they wanted to see haha. I feel like if I put on a dress, there is bound to be some crazy winds. It sure is pretty though!!! Mmmmm give me all the sour cherry balls. One of my favorites! Look how far along your house is coming!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Where to begin??? Well let's start at the top. That dress looked darling on you and slit or no slit it worked girl! Your sweet mama really is aging well and you are going to follow in her footsteps for sure. I mean look at you now...not a wrinkle to be seen. #jealous The house being framed. EEEKKKKK!!!! So exciting and what a gorgeous lot with all those trees behind it. You are going to just love that!!! Not sure which room those blue beauties are going in, but it's going to be gor-geous!!! Happy Wednesday sweet friend!

  25. What a cute dress, you definitely rocked it but I get what you're saying...that totally would have happened to me hahaha. I just adore your cute Mom, what a lovely lady and I CAN'T believe she will be 70- what a beauty!

  26. I feel like every time I go to take pics the wind wants to come out and make it difficult for me lol You still look fabulous as always! I have been loving all things floral print lately. Beautifully Candid

  27. I think the dress looks amazing on you.. and arent windy days fun when taking pictures, split or no split? You always radiate.. great smile and tan my friend! I have been eating watermellon and cantalopue like crazy!

  28. That off the shoulder look is fab! (I need your tan!) Also, where did you score those home decor finds? LOVE the pillow! Thanks for your comment on my master bedroom!

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's not an age thing. My husband would put me on a subway vent, wait got a gust then take a pic. He's mean like that. At least yours is supportive. Great dress though. I saw a maxi like this on holiday on a lady in her 60son or so. She looked fab but I was in fear she'd trip on the back as she was dancing in heels and the back dragged on the ground.

  30. your momma is adorable! I see where its a family trait ;)
    I hate that when you get a dress or skirt & dont know the fly-away action is possesses. I have some short knit skirts that any windy day, WHOOOOO - they swoop up so easily.

  31. Loooooove seeing your house progress- also your yard looks amazing. How big is the lot?

  32. Another pretty OTS dress! You look good! And I second Jessi... I need your tan!

  33. That dress is so cute, but that sucks that it was so windy when you wore it out! I always hate dealing with the wind because I'm scared that one of these days my dress will fly up in front of everybody! And those first few pieces that you got for your house are so pretty! I love the wave picture!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh no--I feel like I always pick the windiest days to wear dresses and skirts, and then I regret it. Such a pretty dress though! How exciting about your house--I love the little sneak peek of the decor, so pretty! Also... I had no idea there were little snack sizes of that fresh mozzarella. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well you made out lucky in the gene pool! Your Mom is gorgeous. Wind and dresses is not a good mix but you looked beautiful as always.

  36. Cute dress! Sorry the slit is a bit too high though. I'm always having to hold my dresses down when it's windy.

  37. LOLing at your dress! You are NOT too old to wear that dress! I have a shirt that splits at the front that I got from Anthro a few summers ago and I have to be really careful wearing it because I do not need it flying open to reveal everything! Love the picture of your house progress and the picture of your mom who is GORGEOUS! You must tell her I said that!

  43. This OFTS dress looks gorgeous on you Andrea and you styled it to a T with all the perfect accessories. No way are you too old for a high split dress!! I'm thinking the wind factor made it feel too Marilyn Monroe for you but let's face it, I'm sure you styled it better than anyone else! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  44. LOL oh dear Andrea! You're never too old for a thigh high split LOL! You look fabulous though, regardless of you having to hold down the dress.

  48. Maybe you could stitch together part of the slit? Because it's so cute and looks fab on you!

    I love all things Cherry Republic - they just opened a store in my town within walking distance of my house, and my preschooler and I might swing by there with some frequency to check out the samples they have out... So glad you had the chance to link up for the first time.

  49. Such a pretty dress on you! And your mom is adorable! I can see where you get your amazing fashion sense and beauty from! :)

  50. Such a pretty dress! You look fabulous! Can you maybe add a stitch or two? I did that recently with a skirt with a split that came up way too high, and I'm very happy with it.

    Hope you are having a great week dear Andrea!

  57. Andrea, you look smashing in this dress, don't worry about the leg, a bit of skin looks sexy, maybe you can use some cute little pin or just join the split with few stitches but whatever you do, just don't let it just hung in the closet

  67. I love that tulip front midi dress so much and I own a similar one but mine is a maxi so the slit isn't as high. Maybe you should try one of those. Love how you styled it with those adorable fun espadrilles and happy 70th to your beautiful mom!

    Hope you enjoyed beautiful Traverse City. Isn't Michigan gorgeous especially the UP?! I love that you did a currently update. I do these currently posts and linkup with Anne every month. I love doing them. =)
