Summer is a season that I struggle with when it comes to dressing. Not because I don't like summer clothes, but because I have a REALLY hard time justifying summer clothes when I spend most of my waking hours in the office. Buying summer clothes just seems so pointless when I am only going to wear them on Saturday and Sunday. But recently I did invest in a few things and they have made dressing on the weekends a lot easier. These lace shorts were something I had been eyeing for forever, and the lime shorts were $4 at Target. Two pieces made a huge difference in using clothes that I already had, especially one of my favorite statement necklaces.

Here's a better picture of the lace...

Does anyone else struggle with justifying summer clothes?

Summer Weddings

I was faced with the challenge of a wedding with a few different dynamics. The first dynamic being that the actual wedding was at 11am and then the reception was later at 5pm. The second being the need to be available and able to carry a 3 year old and a 6 month old at any given time. Strapless was out of the question, as well as tall heels. Not being a mom, I have never been faced with this issue before- but it's probably just a little glimpse into the future.

This dress ended up being perfect. I fell in love with the lace and the fact that while the main focus is on one strap, there are still two straps. I added the belt to keep it a little casual and give the dress a little shape.  The shoes aren't a small heel but they are comfy and not too tall.

Dress: Ross $14.99
Shoes: Ross $16.99
