Watermelon Sequin Dress

Given the fact that we can't really leave the house anymore except for essentials and walks, I have had to get a little more creative with where I do blog photos. Formerly, I would scout locations, finding colorful walls or cute spots near where we would go out for lunch or dinner but for now I have to use what's somewhat nearby and free from people. Luckily, my neighborhood is currently in bloom with bougainvillea, which makes for the perfect, pretty backdrop. I thought that this new watermelon sequin dress was the perfect match my bougainvillea background so, all in all, it worked out for the best! Yes, it might be a little weird walking around the neighborhood in a sequin dress but there's a lot of weird things going on right now, so who cares?

Being resourceful and making the most out of what we have has also been applicable to other aspects of life during this time. For example, when it comes to cooking, I am trying to go through our pantry and refrigerator and use up everything we have in ways I might not have even thought of before. I am also very concerned with not letting anything go to waste, which is something that many of us took for granted (I know I did) before the pandemic broke out. So, while this might not be an ideal situation, I'm definitely learning some important lessons from the experiences, lessons that hopefully I won't forget once we get back to the little luxuries of life that we use to enjoy, like being able to take blog photos wherever I want!

  1. Obviously I absolutely adore your outfit and how lucky you are to have such a stunning backdrop right in your neighborhood. We went to do a few photos the other day but it's difficult as we are trying not to venture too far.

    I also feel the same about cleaning out my fridge, freezer and pantry. This time has me deeply reflecting on so many things. Really enjoyed reading your post.


  2. Katie, this dress is so fun! Sequined watermelon! Who wouldn’t love that? And this...”but there’s a lot of weird things going on right now, so who cares?” totally cracked me up! That is how I am trying to approach life in general during “normal” times. We live in a weird world filled with even weirder people, so I am just gonna keep doing my own weird thing! I am glad that you are, too!



Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
