Beauty & Fashion




Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Can you get over that summer is here? I feel like it was just Christmas! I love summer, but not when it is 110 degrees in Dallas! Anyway, because it is summer and a good time to wear dresses, I wanted to show you four summer dresses + Memorial Day Sales. I will wear these dresses a lot (plus these)! First, I am pasty white and don’t get a tan no matter how hard I try (so I don’t anymore). I have found a great self-tanner that goes on smoothly and dries quickly to give a realistic-looking tan. It’s from Coco and Eve,  and I suggest getting this set. I feel a lot more confident wearing these dresses when my legs and arms aren’t ghostly pale.

Let’s get started on these summer dresses! The dress above is from Jude Connally. Jude Connally makes easy-care and easy-wear pieces made in America to flatter every body type. I love this easy maxi dress with a flutter sleeve that comes in four other prints. It’s lightweight enough for the hot temperatures! This beauty is another favorite dress of mine from Jude Connally. The raffia shoes I am wearing are from Dolce Vita and have been my go-to shoe for dresses lately.



I am obsessed with this green number! She is a lightweight embroidered cotton shirtdress with a tiered skirt. The back has a cutout (it doesn’t really show anything) for a breezy look. This dress looks a lot more expensive than it is! In fact, I was at the Frame store this week with the dress, and one of the girls who works there ordered it immediately and couldn’t get over the price. This dress is $99! The shoes are a frayed canvas platform.



The next dress is a pretty mocha brown colored cotton dress with cap sleeves and a v-neckline. It has an elongating zip-front detail and smocking at the waist with pockets. This dress comes in seven other colors if brown isn’t your thing. I was torn between brown and navy, but brown won out! This is a fun dress that can be dressed up or down.



I love this blue and white dress! This is from ME + EM. I love this brand and wish they had a store in Dallas! They are a British brand, and the clothes and accessories (even shoes) are so sophisticated and classic! I wanted to show the dress as is, but if you are not one to show your arms, a denim jacket would look so cute draped on the shoulders. I’m wearing a pair of black sandals (available in 3 other colors) from ME + EM that they are showing all over their website with everything. You could easily dress up this dress for a shower or luncheon with silver or black heels.

What are you all up to this weekend? We went from snow last weekend in Montana to sunny and hot in Naples. We are with our oldest son and family to celebrate his birthday today. I love the mountains in the summer but put me in a beach town, and I am in my happy place! Wherever you are, I hope you have a great weekend!

Stay well, and BE SAFE!!! xx
