Staying cool is always a priority for me when dressing for the Summer months. This dress I purchased in 3 colors. Sorry I am not sorry. It was the best gift from God in the middle of June when I found this number for $12.90 at Forever 21. And in 3 colors? deal! I normally try to steer away from nude/neutrals because they can almost always wash you out. But thanks to a Summer tan and this darker version of fabric it works. I love this dress because I can picture myself throwing a sweater over it for the winter. That is if Winter ever comes… Thankfully, our heated months are nearly over and we can hopefully all be thinking about the words Hot coffee or jeans really soon… 😐

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday! With all the hustle and bustle I unintentionally took a few days off from blogging/technology to fully enjoy my family and catch up with friends. There is always a sense of sadness that I feel about Christmas because I wish it would last longer. The act of giving, loving, sacrificing, coming together and celebrating is so profound I get really sad that it’s over so quickly. I am so incredibly grateful for my amazing family, friends and my dapper fellow that I want more time. I want one more day with us all together laughing and cooking and eating and watching movies. I want one more day to tell them all how much I love them and how much they mean to me. I want one more day relaxing with Dapper Fellow at home, just him and I. I want one more day cuddling with my dogs and not having to work. I want one more day to thank/celebrate God for the ultimate gift of His Son. It is a lot to soak in and as another Christmas has passed I am in awe of the blessings in my life and grateful to be alive.
With that said…Today’s outfit is a juxtapose mix. This is a standard Amy move…Running late, getting ready for work, trying my best to throw something together. Not my favorite outfit, but it works. I got this scarf a few months ago when it was still in the 90’s and I forgot how soft it is. I actually like how the mix of grey’s and yellow’s work together…

Dresses are one of my fav go-to’s when the weather starts to heat up in Phoenix. There is nothing like a light, loose, flowy, material to ease the heat that we are about to encounter. The thing I love about dresses is that you can instantly look effortlessly put together in minutes. Just throw it on, add a belt and some accessories and you’re ready to go.
