White Dress for Summer

Happy hump day! We had a big day yesterday celebrating our granddaughter’s 3rd birthday. It’s hard to believe she’s already 3!

We went to my daughter’s last night for a birthday celebration, and I was going to wear a sleeveless tank and shorts, but I changed and wore a white dress.

I stopped by my daughter’s earlier in the afternoon, and she and Claire both had on dresses, so of course, I had to wear a dress.

This is what I wore during the day yesterday.

Cable Sweater Vest (I’m wearing a small)//White Crop Tank Top (I’m wearing a small)//Caslon Denim Shorts (these run big, size down. I’m wearing a size 27)//Earrings//Slide Sandals//(TTS)//Necklace//Mini Boho Bracelet

I wore this pretty lined cotton shift dress from Gibson; I love that it’s lined so you can’t see through the dress. (Use code CYNDI15 for 15% off)

The dress has ruffle trim on the neck and shoulders.

I wore my Tory Burch sandals with the dress, but these are similar and less expensive.

Little Miss Claire had her toes painted yesterday for her birthday, and she was so excited.

There was lots of playing outside last night. (Our son-in-law was inside putting together a dollhouse we bought Miss Claire for her birthday, so I didn’t get a picture of him.)

My daughter Courtney is six months pregnant and is wearing a babydoll dress from Target; it’s not a maternity dress but the style works.

That unicorn Claire is holding blows bubbles, and she kept putting bubbles in all our faces. Haha!

That’s a wrap! Now can we slow down? She’s growing up way too fast.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~The world tells you many lies about who you are, and you simply have to be realistic enough to remind yourself of this.

Every time you feel hurt, offended, or rejected, you have to dare to say to yourself: These feelings, strong as they may be, are not telling me the truth about myself.

The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God’s eyes. -Henri J.M. Nouwen

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!

  11. Happy Birthday to Claire!!!! She is a little doll. YOur daughter favors you alot too. I love the white dress. I don’t wear dresses at all right now but our class at church is starting back in June after Covid since we have a small class room and everyone has waiting to be sure. Then maybe I will wear a dress again on Sunday morning. I do love maxi dresses with high low hems for casual summer time fun. You look great in the white dress – plays up your tan!
