28 Jul Dress Shirt… Dress. // Missing Nails // Almond Milk Lattes
Okay, y’all… it’s officially HOT outside. Like slap your grandma, hot. I’m ready for fall, not gonna lie! I don’t ever want to wear anything other than exercise clothes when I leave the house! Getting dressed up feels like a waste because all that hard work I put into my hair and makeup seems to melt away. And… as a new mom, I don’t have TIME to do my hair and makeup! If I can escape the house after curling my hair without spit up on the ends or sweet potato at the roots, my makeup and hair and OUTFIT are going to need to last longer than .74 seconds outside before I sweat them away.
And while I’m at in on this heat0induced rant… I am missing one, YES ONE, whole nail. My little acrylic popped off while buckling my darling baby into his carseat earlier that day. I could’ve edited one back on, but I don’t know how to. Also, I’m all empowered by this Instagram post by my friend, Stacy, who is all about MOMMY POWER and YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT and stuff. It’s a great post and I think you should read it. Also, I’m so so sorry… they look terrible and I got them done a few days later and they look so much better now, please forgive me! phew…
Anyways! Today, I’ve got a great outfit that I actually ran around town in on Sunday. I wore it to church, then brunch and then shopping around and exploring with my cute littlest sister, Cathlyn!
This collared shirt dress [I was lucky enough to snag one like it on sale over a year ago, but look! This one is on sale too!] is the PERFECT, tailored look for church or even work! Something about a collared shirt dress says ‘I’m dressing up, but I’m not going to die of heat stroke! So, it’s a win win!’ I added my new RocksBox collection jewelry that I received this month and it made the look so much cooler! If you tell them you know me [by using the code XOXOTHEHISFOR], you can get your first month FREE!!
I paired the dress with these AMAZING lace-up sandals! They are ALSO ON SALE! HECK YES!
Then I went straight to Houndstooth for an iced almond milk latte… emphasis on the ICE. Almond milk is my FAVORITE way to make my dairy indulgences dairy-free. It’s much better for you than soy milk, and has the perfect taste to add to coffee or espresso. I drink an iced coffee with almond milk [or 4 during the school year] almost every morning! Also, Houndstooth Coffee is AWESOME! Check out my Zomato account [by clicking the black box on the right side of my blog] to see all my food and restaurant recommendations in and around Dallas!
I hope you all stay cool and sane on this HOT July day! You can shop this outfit below!
