How was your weekend? I hope you and Monday are making peace with each other 🙂 Me and Mondays don’t always get along that why I wish this for you LOL
I thought I would share a new found discovery: I haven’t worn shorts in about 16 years. I think I was always a little self conscious and felt awkward about my legs but the last year or so I realize I need to let that go!
(Last year as I began my blog, I started wearing more dresses in the summer, kind of letting my legs out in the open) and I realize its fun and there is nothing wrong with my legs 🙂
So this year for my birthday, I got a gift card from my employer and I bought a straw tassel hat and a yellow striped ruffle sleeve shirt at Target and paired it with some destroyed denim shorts (the best deal ever for $3 at JCPenney)! Then I took a picture with my shorts on AND went out to dinner with the hubs with my shorts on! Is that celebrating or what??! I feel super accomplished taking this step and being less judgmental of myself.
Anyone want to join me and be less judgmental?? All aboard my self love train! Everyone is welcome and there is room! 🙂
How are you all doing?? I hope you are well and thanks for reading or following my blog! This has sure been a fun road!
Today I wanted to share my newfound yellow dress! I’ve been on the hunt a couple months for a yellow dress- I’ve found several but style/size/length somehow hasn’t worked. It’s been a (buy the dress- I’ve bought two at Target)-then next day return for reasons listed above. (For some reason I really don’t like trying on items in the dressing room of a store-that annoys me) so I’m constantly or often returning ill fitting items that look good on a hanger. 😂
So late (9pm for me 🤣) I checked out some emails arriving earlier in the day and discovered one from someone I follow: Rach Parcell who launched her own clothing line. Amazingly enough I discovered a yellow gingham wrap dress that was in my budget (her every day line-less expensive) and yellow, along with wrap style (flatters my figure) and ruffles! Checks all the boxes right ??
I have to admit I ordered it that night and was excited when I got it two days later! It’s seriously a darling dress and I paired it with some pearl earrings, pearl necklace for church (no necklace for work) and my new white wedges from Amazon Prime Wardrobe! (I’ve wore the dress twice since I got it- and I think when the season cools I could wear it with my jean jacket and my blue cowboy boots and be super cute!)
I added a link to the dress and wedges so you can buy if you’ve been searching like me!
Have a great day friends!Rachel Parcell Cheery Gingham Dress
The shoe is Rockport Briah Perf Sling -when I try to add link it goes directly to my Amazon account- weird huh?!
Happy Saturday! (I’m sequestered in my house because it’s only 100 degrees outside) and seriously who wants to wander around out in that??
Me and hubs left to run errands but had to come back and get my car cause his has AC problems and won’t work when stopped at traffic lights (sounds important in this heat). So we did errands and have not left the house since! 😂😎 😅
I thought since I’m not doing anything terribly important (😜) I would share a special find this week!
I was retail cruising last week waiting for my eye doc appointment in Chicos and discovered the prettiest denim jacket! It was 40% off and has the cutest details around the neck/lapel area and cuffs. It sort of has a bohemian vibe and I fell in love! It also looks super cute with this little camel 🐪 pin (also on sale and Chicos)! Seriously their stuff is usually bookoo bucks and I avoid but the sale beckoned me in 😂
I think fun and unusual details such as these are always on trend! You could wear this jacket with jeans, zebra print pants like Chicos has, or these (old find) gold snakeprint pants from Macys couple years ago. I might also pair with tan or pink/maybe pants for a different look. You can put denim with anything. I wore blue platform sandals but flats would work or a unique slipper would be fun.
Don’t be afraid to try something new!
Have a happy and (cool) weekend friends!
