Fashion Therapy - Summer Blacks

I wanted to see if I could make this loose black dress feel summery. I think I did, kinda. I felt pretty good as I twirled around the field this evening (photos taken at 7:30 p.m.) I dragged Oreo along with me, but she didn't have as much fun as I did for some reason...

This dress is so comfy, I actually wore it two days in a row. I know, gross. I've been sewing almost all day, getting ready for tomorrow night. I have a booth/stall at local boutique Idle Hands, to sell my handmade clothing. I am so nervous and excited, and still have so much work to do, I can be a horrible procrastinator!
