Twist & Twirl in a LWD

It feels so good to break out my LWD’s for the warmer weather. Even I can get sick of my black clothes sometimes. (GASP!)

Ya know what I’m in love with? Chokers. When trends make their way around again it can be a little alarming… sometimes things go away for a reason. Chokers though, aaaaah yes, I’m so glad they’re back! I’ve worn them a little bit here and there throughout the 2000’s but they’re a staple now. YAY.IMG_7999IMG_7998IMG_7997IMG_7996IMG_7995

I’m a fan of this little white dress for a few reasons; it’s light and airy, perfect for those sticky hot days when you can’t really walk around naked but want to feel like you are, HAH, and the adorable detailed straps. It’s comfortable and cute and a great transitional dress to go from hanging at the beach to having some evening cocktails with just a quick change of shoes.

My Summer Staple

All winter long I look forward to the summer, and all summer long I complain about the heat. I hate being hot. I really, seriously hate it. If I could walk around all summer naked I think I would. However, that would be inappropriate on like 100 different levels so I’ll stick to my favorite summer staple instead; light, airy, barely-there sun dresses.

I seriously liiiiiiiive in little, light dresses all summer long. One thing that has changed for me since becoming a mother in regards to my summer wardrobe is coverage. I used to be able to throw on a tiny little bandeau and slinky little dress and call it a day. If I tried to do that these days… you’d see SO. MUCH. BOOB! My kids are always grabbing at me and clawing at my clothes, it’s inevitable something would fall out, haha. So these days if I know I’m going to be hanging with the kids my dresses definitely have to stay in place. The straps on the back of this little number are perfect for me since they’re adjustable! This dress is fantastic for a day-to-night; I wore it with a pair of my favorite strappy sandals during the day and threw on these wedges for a night out.

I honestly forget how many tattoos I have sometimes… hah does that happen to anyone else? So many of them are in spots I can’t see and forget about. When someone asks me how many I have I always leave a few out… whoops! IMG_3499 IMG_3502 IMG_3495

Can we just talk about these necklaces for a hot minute? Obsessed isn’t even the word! I had such a hard time picking out the ones I wanted because they are all seriously beautiful. I thought these would be a great layering pair, but I’m really in love with the horn. It’s just so preeettttyyyy.
