It's scorching hot today. This is not a dress. It's a beach cover-up...but the heat has compelled me to wear it as a dress. It's very cool, comfy and no fuss. I do need to wear a tank under it...as the neckline is plunging and the arm openings are wide enough to revel the sides of my bra.
My 7 year old son, "the photographer" told me to do a silly pose. It made him happy that I'm posting it here.
I don't enjoy dressing for summer as much as I do for all of the other seasons. It's ALL about staying cool; looking cute is a struggle for me in the summertime. Yeah, I do have body image issues. I love how my body works, how my body dances.....but I still have areas of self consciousness.
Hello from me to You! While I am stressing my body issues, I am thankful for sunscreen and relatively happy skin. I don't use foundation, I use Merle Norman Sheer Defense tinted moisturizer with SPF 15. It looks and feels totally natural and is not shiny like most other tinted moisturizers and beauty balms. In a few months MN will be changing the Sheer Defense formula to SPF 25. Can't wait.
My trusty watch....I never leave home without it. I appreciate that it is an Eco-Drive....no batteries!
Another "trusty" I never leave home without....my Juicy Couture sunglasses. These were a splurge. They were 50% off a ridiculous price tag. Got them from my eye doc's office. Sunglasses are usually large for my small face and these are as well...but they actually aren't too bad. I have had a bad habit of losing sunglasses in the past, but this pair goes in and stays in my bag unless I'm outside in the sun! I never leave home without sunscreen on my face, my lips and I never leave without sunglasses.
Hope everyone is staying cool! I know a couple of readers live in colder regions......and to you, stay warm!
