Hi everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week. I don’t have an outfit to share with you this week, but I have Kellyann from This Blonde’s Shopping Bag as a guest poster today in my absence. I have known Kellyann for several years and we even met a few years ago while I was vacationing in Orlando! Kellyann is such a sweetheart and always has the best arm candy/accessories and the right touch of bright colors in her outfits. She’s a school counselor, but is also starting her own counseling business on the side. You can check out Kellyann’s Instagram HERE.
Also, Jill at Doused in Pink has an outfit to share, so be sure to stop by her blog. AND, we’d love to have you link up your latest summer fashion below. Now, I’ll let Kellyann speak…
Happy Thursday, friends! Today I am thrilled to be filling in for my friend Carrie as she soaks up summer with her family. While I’ve been following Carrie for quite some time, I actually got to meet her IRL when she and her precious family vacationed at Disney in June, 2019! She’s just as sweet and real as she appears here – I love a genuine person!
Let’s get to today’s look. You might remember when I shared this dress in blue. Honestly, I adored the dress as soon as I put it on. So imagine my surprise when I asked my husband what he thought and he said he didn’t really like it. What??? I was just sure the minute he saw me he’d say it was a nice dress.
I pressed him for more details. What was it he didn’t like? The fit? The color? What could it be???? Of course he felt like he was in a no-win situation (like when you ask, does this make me look fat?). But I just wanted to know since it was a dress I liked so much. He finally said it was the color, it looked blah or faded. Well, it was light blue and he is color blind but I actually liked the light blue.
One of the reasons I ordered the dress in the first place was to bring it on vacation with us and wear it on Father’s Day. I hardly wanted to wear a dress my husband didn’t particularly like. I had imagined wearing it to brunch at some yummy restaurant in Nashville where mimosas would flow freely! Ha!
Long story short, I returned the dress. Father’s Day in Nashville turned out to be different than what I expected, there was no brunch and no mimosas. It was fun all the same and we spent a good part of the day outside. Here’s what I wore on Father’s Day.
Dress – I own it in 4 colors!
I ended up ordering the dress again during Prime Day – but this time I got in white. What’s not to love about a little white dress?
This one is so good. It’s got such sweet details and the fabric is a linen blend. It’s well made, has pockets, and a side zip. It comes in 5 colorways so if you’re not a fan of white or blue you have other options.
So welcome to my closet, little white dress. I adore you and I am not asking my husband’s opinion this time.
Do you have a little white dress?
