I know it is not really “late summer” yet. I would say we are smack dab in the middle of summer as far as time plotting goes. However, Late Summer Love is the name of this dress and since I spent
hours minutes staring at these outfit pictures trying to come up with a title and nothing came to me. Well, we went with the name of the dress. And when I say “we”, I mean “I”. Just like when I say “late summer” I mean “middle summer”. Unless I actually mean late summer but at that point I would probably call it early fall.
We are a walking contradiction.
For instance, sometimes I will have to layer something underneath a short dress or I feel naked. Other times, I will leave the house in a dress my husband mistook for a shirt.
I do not know why some pieces of clothing garner different rules than others. It is a conundrum.
This is off topic (if we were ever really on one), but my son calls this pose my chicken pose. That makes me laugh. Or rather squawk.
We took these pictures the other day at my daddy’s apiary. In the second picture above this one, you can see some old hives. I grew up wandering these paths.
I love this picture. It is probably my favorite outfit picture my husband has ever taken. I am not sure why. But it is such a candid shot, because I did not know my husband had started shooting. I like that I am fixing my gnome. It reminds me of being a little girl on that very road.
Although my mother never would have let me wear a dress that short.
My husband agrees with her.
I will pair this dress with leggings, tights and maybe even jeans in the wintertime.
Back to my son’s earlier observation: What would happen if I made it to the other side of this road?
Whatever the answer, I hope I could get there without flashing anybody.
I love the lilac tones in this dress mixed with the yellow. I purchased this dress with my birthday discount and a gift card while it is on sale.
And although it is short, it has really cool sleeves.
That is important.
‘Cause when you’re marching to your own beat, it’s nice to be able to do it with a little flare, regardless of the name of the season or the stance of your pose.
Do you have odd rules about clothes? Do you ever contradict yourself?
I do not know why I do. Squawk!
