Summer Wedding Season Maxi Dress w

June 8, 2017

Hey guys! Happy Thursday.  May was a tough month, actually this entire spring semester was a whirlwind.  I was non-stop at work preparing for commencement and end of the year activities and events and my social calendar was on fire.  When this happens I tend to be on autopilot and once its all over I fall into a sort of hermit mode.  All I want to do is read and research events and people in history, and watch documentaries.  I am not kidding, that is what I do to restore balance.  Now the other day, while my husband was at an event he was invited to with a friend, I felt this deep sense of loneliness.  Loneliness is different from being alone, by all accounts I was not alone, I was home with my two boys and my pup, Timmy.  But the loneliness persisted even in the face of being surrounded by others.  What was I to do?  Well I took a moment to think how lucky I was to have a family and friends who love and accept me.  I thought this is a moment, an emotion that will pass.  I thought of people that I knew that don't have anyone to go home to, that really do feel this tremendous sense of loneliness and are actually alone.  I began to reach out to some friends, check in with them see how they are doing and feeling, maybe we could set up some time in our schedules to meet up and connect.  Just like that my emotions shifted.  Which brings me to my next point and what I quoted on my last insta pic here, give to the world what you believe the world is withholding from you.  If you feel the world isn't showing you loving care, appreciation or assistance, give that to someone else.  Do this without expecting anything in return, allow your ego to fall silent in these acts.   Once you start to rethink your place, your importance and power to positively affect others, the world will give you all the love you crave.

This post was sponsored by Rosegal.  I was very happy to team up with them to bring you this beautiful off-the-shoulder floral dress.  The summer wedding season is upon us and we have an outdoor wedding next month and this is the dress I will be wearing!  Bonus? It is super comfy, fits like a dream and I don't have to wear any shapewear.  This dress is cinched at the waist so there is a shape built in and it moves away from the body i.e. my tummy.  I could have thrown on a belt for some visual interest but the pattern creates enough visual interest.  I kept the accessories minimal to none.  This dress is a stand alone, throw on some strappy heels and you are good to go.  I ordered my dress in a medium but if you decide to shop their pants and you have some hips and some booty (no shame at all, Ive got it too!) I would recommend going up a size or two.  Click here to see their wide selection of gorgeous maxi dresses, tell me what you think!

  1. This is really an amazing place for a wedding. We considered these New York wedding venues for our wedding and reception. Beautiful architecture in a ginormous building with original woodwork, and high ceilings make for an extremely interesting, dramatic, and formal space.
