So-choix-makeup-samples-review-eyelet-blue-dress

I have never been a huge makeup or beauty person until recently as I have started adding to my makeup and beauty collection with samples or makeups on sale but there used to be a time when I was in middle school when I spent days with my aunt Joann, flipping through her Neiman Marcus catalogs and trying out her blushes and other creamy makeups. Occasionally she gave me designer samples to take home.  These samples were not only tried occasionally, but they resulted in a good memory.

Recently my husband and I had a date night and decided to visit a new-to-me local coffee shop (that I adore already) followed by a brunch. On our way to the coffee shop my husband asked why I was bringing a trench coat along? My response “because coffee shops tend to be on the chilly side.  AND a recent blogger inspired me” (see first featured blogger below for the link up).  My husband disregarding my answer kept taunting me with “but it’s 95 degrees outside” and then threatened to post how crazy I was on his Facebook. He never posted my “crazy” fashion outburst, but the taunting still continued.

I think that sometimes people throw things at us about what is expected of us. Like how could you dress at that age? dress like that? Sometimes I am very conscious of these things and worry about what I wear but not this cold shoulder shirt dress. I wore it as a top recently and then this happened. This was my second time wearing it -but as a dress (shorts underneath of course) and I am glad I did. I wear this with confidence. Who cares what others think. I got many responses from wearing this out and about with my hubby on a date. Responses that make me laugh and respond in this most unnatural way.

Last Monday my family and I attended my cousins home for a swimming and food filled day. I LOVED every moment of it! As I mentioned in this post I have only recently begun to feel more confident in swimsuits especially since I found a tankini top that I love. Here I style that same tankini top and bottoms underneath an oversized fringe lined tee, but whats more is what I am also wearing that enhances the summer glow, a body bronzer.
