Summer Fashion-Casual Summer Dress

It’s Day 25 of my 31 days of summer fashion. I wish you could see behind the scenes around here. I’ve got clothes and shoes everywhere, my office, my bedroom, my bathroom….I’ve promised my husband I would be cleaning it all up today. We cannot live like this! Ha!

You can’t post pictures on summer fashion and not throw in a casual summer dress. When the weather is hot and sticky this is what I like to wear.

I keep my jewelry simple. I don’t like a lot of heavy jewelry in hot weather and I also like my hair pulled back.

Summer Fashion-Black Maxi with Chambray Shirt

A few weeks ago, we talked about 10 summer wardrobe essentials and I mentioned a black maxi dress and a chambray shirt. I have a maxi dress from Target and I paired it with a sleeveless chambray shirt for day 24 of 31 days of summer fashion.

Soooo…in case some of you noticed I knocked my fern and stand over in the above picture and forgot to pick it up. I’m brilliant!

Have you added a maxi dress to your summer wardrobe? How do you style your maxi dress?

Beauty For the Heart~~Have you noticed how quickly summer is passing by? I was thinking about it today and reminding myself to soak up every minute.

Take time to sit outside and enjoy God’s creation, go to the pool, catch lightening bugs, eat a popsicle, lay on the ground at night and look up at the stars and the moon and know that God is watching over YOU.

“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”  Hebrews 11:3

Have a blessed day!

Summer Fashion-Polka Dot & Sneakers

It’s day 23 of my 31 days of summer fashion. Today is a fun casual look. Although for a dressier look, you could pair this polka dot top with white pants and a cute pair of sandals. Summer Fashion-Polka Dot & Sneakers I’m not a fan of tennis shoes unless I’m working out. But I’ve been seeing these sneakers everywhere and decided to give them a try. Summer Fashion-Polka Dot & Sneakers This is the time to do some summer shopping, everything is on sale! This top from Old Navy was $8. When you’re shopping look for transitional pieces that you can wear in the fall. We’ll be talking more about this starting in August. I can’t wait! Summer Fashion-Polka Dot & Sneakers I got an action shot while taking my pictures. My sister called to discuss a video we’re going to do together about essential oils. She’s been wanting me to do it for days. I had to wait until I got my hair cut and colored. Now I’m ready. Ha! Summer Fashion-Polka Dot & Sneakers

Have you added sneakers to your summer fashion? 

Beauty For the Heart~~No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Philippians 3:13-14

I have been thinking about this verse all week. It’s one of those verses that has shaped my walk with Christ. Forgetting the past, looking ahead. Press on!

Have a blessed day!

Summer Fashion-Black & Khaki

It’s day 22 of 31 days of summer fashion. I’m heading out to get my hair cut and colored so it’s a perfect day for a hat.

If I’m going to be out in the sun all day, I like to wear a hat because it protects my hair and my face from the sun.

Do you wear hats? Have you tried a fedora hat?

***Thanks for all your sweet comments on my dress from yesterday’s post. Several of you mentioned trying a different pair of shoes. I’m going to try that and I’ll take a picture when I find something I like. Thanks!

Beauty For the Heart~~So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Summer Fashion-Casual Dress

Today I’m sharing some summer fashion with Golden Tote. It’s day 21 of 31 days of summer fashion!

I’ve shared about Golden Tote before. This month I ordered a $49 tote and one of the items I received was this dress. I love the style and the color of the dress but I’m not sure it’s that flattering on me. I may giving it to my daughter.

I think it would be cute with a long silver necklace but I don’t have one, so I added big earrings.

I also wanted to show you some pictures from a blogger friend of mine. Becky blogs at Organizing Made Fun. She’s a dear friend! She loves to organize her wardrobe with Pinterest.

Here are some pictures of outfits she’s put together using her Pinterest boards. She did a post about it here.

Pinterest is such a great way to get outfit ideas! Do you use Pinterest to help you style outfits?

Beauty For the Heart~~Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 62-1:2

Rest knowing you are loved by God and he is your rock!

Have a blessed day!

Difficult Seasons-Take Another Step

It seems like each week I come to this place and ask why? I know life is a journey and there are times of joy but there are also times of sorrow.

Just this week, a friend found out that her 2 year old daughter has a malignant brain tumor. They operated and removed 95% of the tumor. They will have to do chemo and radiation to get rid of the 5% that was left. My heart aches for this family.

I sometimes wonder how we handle the difficult seasons but I’m reminded of this quote by Oswald Chambers….

Take Another Step

We can’t give up. We have to have faith that God is in control. Do the next thing!

When my daughter found out about this tragedy, she texted me, “Why is life so hard?” My answer was simply, “Because this is not our home. We are here to shine light in a dark world and we never know how long we have.”

We have no guarantees of tomorrow but we have today, so let’s shine His light!

The song, Take Another Step by Steven Curtis Chapman kept coming to my mind.

Basically, the song is saying one minute everything can seem perfect and the next minute there’s tragedy. What do we do? Take another step, and then another, and then another……

 

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

I have a hard time posting fashion pictures on Sundays but since I committed to 31 days of summer fashion I’m going to do it. You know I wasn’t going to get through 31 days of summer fashion without wearing my chambray shirt.
