Floral Dress & Striped Shoes



This dress.
What can I say. I'm obsessed.
It's been featured on the blog numerous times. I don't have to do much 'styling' because it's just so awesome on it's own.  I switch up the shoes & accessories., maybe add tights or a belt, but the big floral print & constrasting stripes are the show stealers.

This time I went with a skinny black belt & my new striped flats from Walmart. Seriously, Walmart has the cutest shoes.  I've bought so many pairs there lately.

Insta Lately

Happy Labor Day, friends! I hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing, fun & safe long weekend!

I haven't done an Instagram post in forever.  You can follow me @lenabactually and there are LOTS of outfit posts, of course... but also, if you're interested in my "real life" there's LOTS of that too... for example:

The kids started school last Thursday... Memphis looks really unimpressed, but I promise you he was really excited! He is in 3rd grade this year, and Ruby started grade 1!

We attended the local fair that same day.  In past years, we've gone all 5 days... but I decided against it this year. Glad I did! The kids had a great time, but are now too big for the "kid rides" and not brave enough for the bigger ones.  One night was more than enough for all of us! lol

My husband's garden is out of control! These tomato plants must be at least 12 feet tall!! He definitely had a green thumb!

We brought Memphis to see Walking With Dinosaurs. It was amazing! We let him invite his best friend to come with us... he had an awesome day!

Read & LOVED this book. Can't wait to see it interpreted as a movie! Did anyone see it?

My grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with a cute party & vow renewal. Such a special day!

You can assume that NONE of the  food photos I post are things I've cooked myself. I suck in the kitchen... but my husband is a chef! 

So, follow along @lenabactually! And be sure to leave a comment with your Instagram username so I can follow you too!

Sunday Social

It's been a while since I linked up with Neely, but since I actually have a few quiets moments this morning I thought it would be fun!

This week's questions are...

1. What do you hate doing?
I'd say housework... but that would be a lie. When I'm alone, I can go at it for hours and I love tidying up and rearranging stuff.  But I do hate doing dishes and putting away laundry.

2.  What is the one thing you hate shopping for?
Nothing usually. I love shopping! ha!
However, I do hate shopping for other people. When someone else asks me to pick something up for them, whether it be groceries or something at the hardware store or whatever, I'm always stressed out that I won't pick up the right thing.  It's not that I don't want to help out... it just stressed me right out!

3.  What is one thing you love doing?
Taking pictures!  You can follow me on Facebook for sneak peeks and I'm trying to keep up with my photography blog (Lena B Photography) since my hobby is keeping me quite busy!

4.  What is one place you love going?
I love visiting old book stores or thrift shops.  I always find a little treasure and the whole process is always exciting and enjoyable!

5.  What is your favorite thing to do that you do daily?
Getting dressed up and ready for the day! It always feels good to get out of a hot shower & pick out a cute outfit!

If you link up, let me know so I can be sure to check out your post!
Happy Sunday, friends!
