Is it just me, or is that first work day back after a three day weekend is always tricky? This weekend was pretty great because hubs and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. I feel like I’ve finally gotten used to saying the words husband or wife. I really can’t believe it’s been a year already. But you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun! Yesterday was Memorial Day marking the unofficial start of summer and now it’s back to business and blogging for ya girl. Now that the seventy and eighty degree temps are here to stay I can pull out all the cute stuff. Starting with this pretty yellow lace mini dress!
It was a hot and humid day when I shot this dress. My usual photographer was out of town so my coworker and friend designer K. Vaughn did me a solid and swooped in to shoot this dress. He also brought one of his spring 2018 scarves for me to try. The colors went well with the yellow lace so we decided to incorporate it into the look! I was beyond excited to shoot this dress because I honestly wasn’t sure if I could lol. My weight has fluctuated a bit over the last two years. I gained twenty pounds, lost some, gained it back and now I’m at a stand still. As a result I have a ton of clothes to consign and donate. This dress is one of them. This will be my last time wearing the dress because it’s a little too snug in the mid section.
I purchased this dress a few years ago from H&M. However, I should mention that I haven’t been back to H&M since that whole “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” debacle this winter. So if you see an outfit post with an item or two from the brand, know that it’s a pre 2018 purchase. I have a ton of clothing by the company because it is probably one of my favorite stores but until I see how that issue was resolved places like Zara, Forever 21, and some online retailers will be getting my coins. I chose white leather to accessorize the lemon yellow of the dress and to bring out the white sheer lace overlay. Next I added my trustee white cat eye frames and some translucent costume jewelry to finish the look. I’m warning you now, expect to see these frames for yet another summer because they work with everything!
Well, here’s to a great work week, drop a comment below and tell me about your weekend.
