Every time I do an outfit post I am reminded of the sweetest card my six-year-old bestowed upon me for Mother’s Day. The card was a compilation of fill-in-the-blank descriptions of me. The three that repeat in my head again and again and again are– my mom likes to… get her picture taken, my mom enjoys… cleaning things, my mom loves to… ride her bike with me.
I laughed out loud when I read the comment about getting my picture taken. Just to be clear, before appointing myself a blogger, I did not like having pictures taken of me. I did not DO selfies, I did not pose for the camera, I did not model for any agency. You’re shocked, I know!
The funny thing is that as I’ve already explained in a previous post. This blog business is family inclusive not family exclusive. To see the traveling circus that are my outfit post photos would have any of you rolling on the ground, gulping for air, in the throes of a death laugh.
My kids are there watching me turn this way and that, hearing my husband declare that I look angry, or woeful, or constipated. They entertain themselves by driving each other crazy and asking when we’ll be finished and bartering for treats. This is the way of it. Hence the kindergartener who believes that his mother loves to have her picture taken.
Anyway, summer and dresses are practically synonymous so I served up two for you today! Especially HOT SUMMER days call for light dresses, and while things have cooled off here again in the mountains we went through a stretch of near 100s a few weeks ago. Scorching. I pulled both of these little numbers to try to look cool even if I couldn’t keep cool!
Have a fab Wednesday!
P.S. I do love to clean things, though! LOL!
