Back on the pier :-)))  It’s been a while…

You guys, this dress is 7 or 8 years old!!  I am a believer in CLASSICS and DRY CLEANING.  I believe a print like gingham will never ever go out of style but I did feel like it needed a break.  Maybe that it was too girly a year or two ago…but it’s back on track in a huge way 🙂  There are so many dresses out there currently that are almost IDENTICAL to this one.  Happy Shopping :-))))

And, ANY time I can throw a bow in my hair, I am as giddy as a school girl (and yes, pun intended!!)

4th of July Inspiration

Can you believe the 4th of July is in ONE WEEK??   I cannot…  Getting in the spirit for any holiday is fun, but the 4th is one of my favorite!!  I truly love any reason to celebrate this country…my pride comes beaming through!!  I spent 8 years with the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders and did 8 oversea tours with and for the military.  It was truly the most humbling and rewarding experiences I have ever had.  Hands down.  What the men and women of our military (and their families) do and give for this country is inexplainable.  After spending nights on cots in the desert and riding in armored humvees and  apache helicopters, I got a small snapshot of the sacrifices they make it still gives me goosebumps.  Anytime I can celebrate them and this amazing country, I AM IN!!

I hope you find some inspiration above 🙂

My personal favorite is the top picture…a white button down, khaki shorts and adding those poppy sandals and a navy or even light blue belt.  Still chic yet festive 🙂

I mean, how fun is the back of this sweater?!?!?  I tend to always gravitate towards white anything when I am in a store…white tees, white sweaters, white jeans, white dresses…should I go on?  I picked this one up thinking I was just looking at a simple white summer sweater…BUT THEN, I saw the back.  It was love at first back sight!!
