dress and sandals

5-23-12 1

It's been a bumpy week, but it has had some great moments like getting a new computer (whee!) and having the opportunity to lunch with Julie.  Our conversation was way too short, but stimulating and exciting nonetheless.  We talked about editorial calendars and sponsors and all sorts of fun stuff, including the general content of outfit photos.

Julie brought up something that I've heard from other bloggers along the way - over-thinking an outfit to make it "blog-worthy."  It's such an easy trap to fall into and just ends up causing too much stress, the feeling of falling short and an outfit that just looks ... well, over-thought.  This always comes up in the summer, especially, when all you want to wear is a dress and sandals.  Period.

So, here you have it.  A dress and sandals.  No jewelry.  Minimal make-up.  And a whole lot of feeling awesome.  This one's for you, Julie!

  1. That dress looks amazing on you! You look fantastic! It hides your heavy legs and makes you look so slim. It's truly transforming. Like you I also have legs like sequoias so I know of what i speak.
