I had to steal a day from the beginning of the month. I love belts. They are such a fun way to make a ho-hum outfit into a pulled together look. This dress is pretty basic but when I paired it with this belt, it is much more fun to look at.

Today it actually…rained! And no one knew what to do with that. We played in it, we grumbled about gloomy skies, we took big naps. It was lovely. And thus the temps were actually bearable. And I threw on a pair of jeans, yes, jeans!
Here I am ready for a firework viewing party. This is my rendition of modern hippie which I can say is what I would label a few of my friends. You know who you are! This skirt has a very free-spirit vibe while the shoes and the tank are more modern. I think the beaded necklace also adds to the hippie chick theme.
Shoes- Doctor Scholls
Necklace- Cookie Lee
I’m not sure this outfit qualifies under the “bangles” heading, but it would work under a cuff theme. Here is what I wore to another hot night at the fair.
It was hostess night at our house and so I put on something simple, a maxi dress. It was easy, fun and comfy. It was a bit breezy and thus, I have crazy hair. I took a laid back approach to my accessories too. But I did add one fun detail, my ring. Ring a ding!
In this outfit, I hit the county fair, long necklace and all. I hate to sound like a broken record, but man, it was hot. I tried to stick to lighter colors and breathable fabrics. And I even tried a new hair braid I found on Pinterest. But nothing beat this heat. I hope they are keeping the animals cool! And speaking of animals, you don’t go to the fair in your Louboutins! These are my rubber flip flops that are washable!
I sincerely hope that new readers who stumble upon this blog don’t get the wrong idea about me from that post title. But understand it is all a part of Style Me July.
Here’s me in my outfit for church. I have to confess I wore a vest over top the dress and had on higher heels as well, but it got hot and we ran some errands and this is what was left. I think I actually like it better this version anyway as the linen in the dress feels so casual, cool and yes, pretty, when it is hot!
Nope, you won’t find that in the daily outfit ideas from Style Me July. But that was the headline that was my life on the 23rd of July.
Our little miniature dachshund was found to be missing this morning at about quarter to six. And most of my day was spent worrying about where she was and how to find her.
Thank goodness we did find her and she survived the 105 degree heat, crossing a busy highway and having an adventure that lead her across our town. She is lucky to have been found alive!
So no outfit for today. It was a slap-on-whatever-you-can-find-to-ride-your-bike-around-town kind of outfit. And with my crazy hair, it was not photo-worthy.
So grateful to have my dog back, if not for me, but for my kids. Search and rescue was a success!
I’m pretty sure that to wear this hair accessory you are supposed to be under the age of twelve. But I couldn’t help myself. I bought it from one of those fair vendors and I was entranced by the sparkle of the sequins in the bright sun. Maybe you can’t see it clearly, but it is a butterfly. FYI- headbands are going to be BIG (literally) this fall. So maybe you’ll want to pick up a few at fair vendors too…
If I could escape to anywhere right now, I’d still pick somewhere tropical with a beach destination. I know we have had record temperature highs but I cannot complain. I’d rather have a hot summer where I can live at the pool than a cold rainy summer. I’m loving it!
So here is what I’d wear to paradise-
