Stephany’s Choice: DRESS  ||  HEELS  ||  SIMILAR SILVER CLUTCH (under $25!)

Summer has definitely arrived here in Dallas this week. After some delayed sunshine in May and early June I can finally say summer is in full swing. It is hot hot hot!!!

Personally when it’s this hot the only thing I want to put on my body is something light weight, soft and fresh.

Last week I went to the pool for 2 hours (11-1:00 pm) and I got FRIED! It was horrible. Today several days later my skin is still store, blistering and peeling 🙁 It’s itchy and very uncomfortable. Luckily I didn’t stay at the pool one second longer. Also lucky that I wore a hat, or my face would be destroyed. Lesson learned! I guess thats the punishment you deserve the first day at the pool where you are over eager to be sun kissed, and under estimate the power of the sun.

The funny thing is, I would never let this happen to the kids. I’m so protective of them and the swimsuits they wear are basically a full body cover up. 

They even have cuter bathing suits, hats and flip flops than I do…I don’t even mind it. I actually prefer shopping for them more than I do myself. I like dressing them up and they look so cute in everything. Can’t say the same is true for me. My size fluctuates all the time, most days I feel tired and it shows. More often than not my hair is tied up in a messy top knot and I’m wearing the same outfit several days in a row. 

I guess it’s all part of the “mom life”. I still wouldn’t trade it, and it beats having to look “corporate” all the time anyway…

This cute dress is under $100, easy to move around in, pretty and flattering. I love it!! Need more items like this in my closet!! Fits like a dream-if you’re hesitating on size, size up 😉

XO,

Stephany
