Summer has been sort of a mess for me stylistcally.
Thursday I showed up at a community concert in a bleach stained hoodie. To be fair, it was chilly (not sure why, Summer is confused as well) and I had to put on my “car jacket” in order to be comfortable.
So forgive that one.
Personally I am still struggling with the fact that I wore the same outfit twice last week. Technically it was three times, but the first day doesn’t count because only my kids saw me.
I recall looking down at myself, as I snapped a photo from my position on the soccer field, in utter horror when I realized that I had worn the EXACT same outfit, right down to the completely lack of makeup, to my son’s soccer game two days prior.
Summer has caused me to lose a bit of myself I guess. I’m too busy trying to balance work and a childcare. And cleaning glasses. Why do they think they need a clean glass EVERY time they get a drink. Also, why do they need so many drinks?
In less than two weeks I will be spending three days in New York with hundreds of other bloggers networking and learning and reconnecting and taking selfies all over the city.
I am still working out what I will wear for three days in New York with people I know, but I have promised myself that I will NOT bring the hoodie with me for this adventure.
Unless it’s cold and then all bets are off because I can not bear summer chilliness.
The only thing I know for sure will be making an appearance is this dress.
DudeDad purchased it, with zero input from me, along with shoes, and accessories and I am fully in love with it.
It’s easy to dress up or down and it fits perfectly (it has a wrap front at the top that works great for those of us with fully expanded bust lines, and it cinches at the high waist to flatter those of us who also have fully expanded waist lines!) while also looking pretty darn decent (I know this because even my children have complimented me on it and without prompting from me!).
Best part? It’s on sale at H&M for only $20. And if you throw in this pair of shoes, you can even enjoy free shipping!
What’s your summer go to outfit?
