Man this heat wave this week … OMG it was super hot! When it is hot like this outside I do not want any extra clothes making me even more hot. You know that irritating sticky feel you get, or that feeling you feel dirty as soon as you step outside. Yeah that kinda of hot. Less clothes… gotta pull out a sun dress. With that being said I found a cute little button down sundress. I guess you can say I am trying to knock some of the last few trends of the summer before we get fully geared up for fall attire in the store.
The heat index is somewhere between OMG and WTH
Any who I got this striped button down dress from Forever21. The shell of the dress is made out of cotton with full rayon lining, so I believe the material will help keep you cool. This dress is definitely outside my comfort zone. If you know me, I am body con dress lover. I love anything that hugs my curves. So having a dress that does not hug me was different, but in a good way. I normally do not do dresses like this because of my body shape. I feel like I am a mix between an hour glass shape and pear shape. I am smaller at the top, and I feel like a lot of plus size clothing are tailored to more bustier women. That cool with me but have a hard time with pieces like this because it does not fit right up top. It is the struture thus why I go for a bodycon dress, form fitting.
So, I got this dress in 1X because the store did not have this 0X. When I think about I not sure if the 0X would fit right.. it might be too tight in hip area. When I initially tried it on at the store I was in love with this dress. I love how it hugged my hips. Yes, It is a bit big in the bust area on the sides of the dress. However, I do think the sides can be pinned down. What I absolutely love about the dress is the heart-shaped neckline, the buttons, and that the straps are adjustable. The color is bomb, the length is great, and the pockets are so cute ! Overall I am satisfied with this dress.
HMMM… I am going to see if I can get this taken in on the sides !
do small things with great love
my today’s confident woman devotional was about dealing with the little things. idk but this was spot on for me today. i have a lot of little things i need to do before i go on vacation and i am dreading it all. like going to bank, or the grocery store, just basic things in life. i have to agree with joyce meyer’s that dread definitely steals my joy. in all honesty i don’t have any more joy to give so, i am trying to get in front of it all sis. to all my ladies out there let’s try to tackle our day by checking boxes , crossing out things on our to-do list. get things done you will feel rewared when you see all that you accomplished throughtout the day. you can do it because if i am strong you are strong to sis. we got this.. push forward
