Happy Friday; summer is here and how best to enjoy the hot weather than in a shirt dress. I have had this denim shirt dress for a while now and I usually wear it on days when I need to go on errands but do not feel like wearing denim pants. Dress shirts should be in every lady's closet and it is great that they are on trend this summer. I paired it with my very first pair of white shoes. I got this sandals over ten years ago from DSW when I was getting ready for my wedding then I found out last minute that they were not too comfortable and I went shopping in a frenzy and found another great pair; a glitter-wedge-high heeled sandals which ended up being the perfect choice for the day. Funny enough, I seldom wear both shoes but I think I would wear both of them out this summer...:-). I threw on a floral wooden bracelet to give a nod to the floral trend and my Ann Taylor mini bucket bag finished off the look.
My heart goes out to the victims of the church massacre at South Carolina and I pray that their families and friends get divine comfort to bear their loss. Why can't we all just embrace each other? It grieves my heart to hear that some people still have so much hate and anger in their hearts in this diverse and advanced world that we live in today.
On a different note, I posted pictures of me in shorts on my instagram a couple of weeks ago and a lady who has a fitness/cosmetics business in-boxed me samples of stretch marks and cellulite cream. I thanked her graciously but let her know that I was not interested in her products. Really!! Seriously??? what is wrong with a lady having a stretch mark or a dimple or pimple here and there? We do not have to be perfect and no one is. It is good to look good outwardly but I think our inner worth or mindset is more important. There is too much attention put on the outward appearance these days. I know this might sound cliche coming from me, but it is true.
Denim dress: Nordstrom: splurge, save, save
Bucket bag: Ann Taylor
Floral bracelet: old
Well, I decided to embrace all my dimples and stretch marks like I always do in this shirt dress and if you notice them in these pics, just pretend that they are not there...hehehe...:-).
