July is blooming out all over..

I hope you all had a great 4th of July. I spent mine with my friends and family and it was an absolutely gorgeous weekend. Anyway, after a long cold winter and a wet cool spring, the summer heat has finally arrived in West Texas with temps in the low-to-middle 90’s earlier this week. And that means, travel, ice cream nights, weekend adventures and of course, colorful outfits. Mixing colors has always been one of my favorite trends, well, I love color. If it’s one thing summer has to offer ( of the many fabulous things, like lavenders,days in the park, flip flops!) it’s that I can break out my floral dress outfit. I got this fun spring/ summer dress from Forever 21 and this dress was super chic. It’s long sleeve and comfy, yet very pretty. I can wear it to church, brunch, or date night with the hub! And also it can be worn at many types of occasions throughout the hot season. The style is fairly timeless, the ruffle bow collar give a little vintage touch that I love.

      Hi Maddy!! Smile is always a smart thing to do, don’t you think? And the reason why this is true is not at all related to the “fact” that faking a smile is better than standing there with a sad face, like many people seem to think nowadays. On the contrary, a genuine smile can have many shapes and meanings, it can communicate different things,it can be a sign a complicity or simply the expression of pure empathy. You don’t even need to think about it too much: just smile 🙂 Hehe!!!! Have a great day! 🙂 🙂 🙂
