I think Mother Nature forgot Spring! This weather lately has been amazing and I would never complain about it being hot out, but man it’s hot out! I look forward to this time of year all year long (winter is a nightmare with all the snow and ice,) the flowers start blooming and the birds begin to chirp; it puts an extra pep in my step! 😉 Although with all the new blooming, along comes the allergies and Daarik’s are terrible (sneezing constantly, poor guy). But once he gets on his allergy medication all is well at casa de Gray. We get to enjoy our back deck and grilling; if we eat out we request to be on the patio, anyway we can get outside, we’re outside!
This brings me to my next point: the chambray dress (similar) I’m wearing (I scored at TJ Maxx for under $30)! I’ve already worn this dress on many occasions, its perfect for this time of year. I’ve mixed it up and styled it several different ways: with booties, lace up sandals, espadrilles (heels & flats) and flip flops. I’ve paired it with gold, silver and multi-colored jewelry and even with a scarf; it’s so versatile! And even though the temps are in the 80’s here, this dress is so comfortable and breathable it makes the warm weather a little more bearable to be out in.
With this look I decided to go with my espadrille flats, which are incredibly comfortable and I wear them on repeat (think about getting a pair, you’ll never take them off) suns and simple silver jewelry (here, here). The Longchamp purse I’m carrying I’ve had for years (that shows it’s not going out of style anytime soon), some of my girlfriends gave it to me for a Birthday present!
Hope you guys have a great hump day and here’s to the rest of this week speeding by!
