Summer Dresses

I am and always have been a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl.  But last summer, I made an effort to start wearing more dresses.  Especially during the summer months.  And you know what?  It is definitely something that has stuck.  I find myself wearing more and more dresses these days without even making a conscious effort to do so.  And this easy, breezy swing dress from Express is at the top of my list.  I first found the long sleeve version this spring (which you can see how I styled it here), and then found it in sleeveless stripes, and now in this gorgeous cobalt blue.  It is definitely a go-to in my wardrobe and as I head out on vacation today, you can guarantee it’s packed neatly in my suitcase!

FPF: All Things Yellow

Untitled #7
 
Instead of a favorite product, I wanted to share my favorite color with all of you today.  And yup, you guessed it.  Yellow is my absolute favorite color in the whole world.  So you can only imagine how thrilled I am that it is one of the colors of the season.  And since this is definitely not something that happens very often, I intend to take full advantage.  So in honor of my adoration for the color of sunshine, I thought I would share with you my current wish list of all things yellow!
 
Happy Friday!

The Cold Shoulder

One thing I know for sure, I definitely did not get the cold shoulder from my friends and family on my birthday-in fact so many people in my life reached out and made such incredibly sweet gestures, that it is safe to say it was one of my best birthdays yet.  I did however, choose to wear my new bright pink cold shoulder top to my birthday dinner at my favorite wine and tapas bar with our very dearest friends.   It was a wonderful evening and I am so grateful to all who came out to celebrate, for the beautiful weather, the lovely gifts, and time spent with so many sweet friends that I don’t get to see nearly enough.  I was a very blessed birthday girl this year!

I love the cold shoulder trend.  I think it is a great way to dress up a simple top-in fact, the other cold shoulder tops in my closet are primarily jersey and most of them seem to have stripes.  I tend to gravitate towards them because they are comfy enough to make you feel like you are slipping on your favorite t-shirt, but add a few accessories and some cute shoes, and you have an outfit fit for just about any occasion-including a birthday dinner in your honor! 🙂  They also tend to be flattering on my most figures and are a great way to transition from long sleeves to tank tops.  I know I never feel quite ready to show my pasty white arms in the month of May, so a cute cold shoulder top is the perfect middle ground.

Happy Hump day!!
