I guess you could say that today was “Beauty Day”. I just got back from my 5-week haircut with Nicole, and before that I had an appointment with a local skin care center to laser off a dime-size dark sun spot that surfaced a few years ago. My dermatologist said that it was just an “age spot” and nothing to worry about, but I could have it burned off if it continued to bother me. After constantly covering it with concealer, it was time to get rid of that cyclops near my collar bone. I have a follow-up in four weeks to give it a final zap if it has not all gone away by then. I will post a before and after picture at that time with a “Beauty” post. It only took three zaps that felt like pin pricks and was a bit warm, did not really hurt but it did put off a burnt smell. Okay, probably TMI, off to the “OOTD” (Outfit of the Day)!
I am already thinking about Spring and Summer vacation outfits. The “t-shirt dress” is especially on trend this Spring. It is very versatile and comfortable, and can be worn with wedges, heels, sandals or even canvas sneakers. My legs are not yet tan for summer and also have some veins behind the knee that I need to have taken care of soon. I wanted to show how you can wear white leggings with the dress to dress it up and also cover up if you aren’t yet ready for full leg exposure. These leggings are by Elietian, I just bought them at a local boutique named “Diva Darlings“. They are a thick, non-pilling comfortable rayon/spandex/nylon blend.
I recently bought this fresh light blue and white stripe dress on sale at T. J. Maxx. It is a soft poly/cotton blend for easy wash and wear. The brand is “Sail to Sable”, a beachy resort brand that I have also seen at Belk. It is a good length, not too short but above the knee. The extra surprise detail on the dress is the pretty gold zipper down the back. Neutral tan sandals work well with the cool look. You can read more about this wedge sandal in my previous post here. Another footwear option is a flat sandal with plenty of sparkle to play off of the jewelry and the gold zipper down the back of the dress. I just had to have these “bling-y” ones from Versona. I normally cannot wear flat shoes, but these sandals have a padded insole with extra cushion under the ball of the foot. The glitter has multiple colors and the gold has a slight rose tint, so they can be worn with anything to give it an extra pop of personality when you want to have “twinkle toes”!I mixed this classic stretch pearl bracelet from Avon and drop dangle faux pearl earrings (Kim Rogers brand from Belk) with the gold necklace to play off of the white stripes in the dress. You can never go wrong with pearls! Okay, put your shades on, here are my untanned legs! Bare legs gives the dress a more casual look for pool side and extra hot days. This is with the wedges……..and here is a view with the bling-y sandals.
Let’s get some comments below! Have you already planned your Summer vacation? Do you pack light or over-pack? Do you have special places that you go to over and over each year? I would love to hear about some of your favorite places – I am terrified to fly, but I force myself to go — Honey gives me a hard time, he has worked for Delta Air Lines for over 30 years now! LOL.
