Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you have had a good week. I am trying to be upbeat, but this COVID sh*t is making me mad now! I thought it was supposed to get better in the heat! I have been praying for scorching Texas temperatures to make this go away, and instead, we are getting hot temps with more of the virus! I feel like we are living in the Twilight Zone! There is still never a dull moment around here, though. We are finishing a room above our garage and have a lot of comings and goings-on with that. It is fun to see the room (and bathroom) start to take shape and plan what it will look like. I am not a huge color person, but I may try to work a little color in the room, and the color I am thinking, is peridot green like the summer dress I am wearing.
I am always drawn to this shade of green. Peridot is my birthstone, and it’s a color that I can wear. I think it would be so pretty used in a bedroom too. But, more about this summer dress. I ordered it a few weeks ago because it’s so stinking hot here and dresses are so easy to throw on to keep you cool and I needed a few for the summer. Of course, what made me order it was the peridot color plus, I love the puff sleeves and that it is washable. I thought I might add a tank underneath because it looked a little low cut, but I decided to forgo and be a little bit daring (ha!). I am weird now with anything that has a plunging neckline because my boobs look ripply toward the middle of my chest, but the dress covered it enough. Anyway, isn’t it a cute summer dress? It’s from a brand called Faithful The Brand, and I have found some of the cutest pieces from them. I think I may have to order this dress too! If you don’t love the dress but love the print, I found this dress, skirt, robe, pajama shorts, and top in it.
I think sundresses look great with wedges, but I generally wear them with a flat sandal unless I am heading to dinner or a luncheon, but since that is not happening right now, flat sandals it is! I also love this bag from Caterina Bertini, which I have shown a couple of times. I think the shape looks like a Fendi baguette, and it’s perfect for a summer bag. I purchased mine on Shopbop, but it’s already sold out (one of these is left). I did find it in dark brown here. I have linked a few other straw bags below that I like.
We have nothing planned for the weekend. We finished the second season of a show we’ve been watching called Sweet Bitter last night. We started watching The Crown with my mom and are into the second season on that one, but we can’t watch it while she is out of town (that would be cheating). We desperately need to find a new series to start. I don’t want to sound like a millennial or a child, but I am bored! Anyone else?
I hope you have a great weekend! Be well, and stay safe.
