Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hello Friends!
Just a quick note to let you know I will be taking a break from blogging for the next 2 weeks.
I will be traveling and exploring some new territory.
As always you can follow me on Instagram to see what I am up to.
@silvrgurl is my Instagram username.
Awkward:
  • I like guys with long hair, I like guys that rock a ponytail, but a guy with a side ponytail is just wrong!!
  • When the dentist calls to reschedule an appointment and then calls again 5 minutes later to reschedule the same exact appointment.
  • When you come home to a clean dog, but then notice the dog shampoo is in your shower.
  • Walking outside in the morning to let the dog out and seeing that the deer have made a meal out of your hydrangeas.
  • When it is so hot outside that you cannot even breathe!
 Awesome:
  • Getting to see a classic film noir movie in a real movie theater.  Double Indemnity with Barbara Stanwick and Fred McMurry.  
  • RAIN!
  • Getting to see a free screening to the movie Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal.  I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it
  • Getting the 5 remotes for the TV down to just 2.
  • VACATION
 I have been on the fence regarding the Kimono trend. 
 I finally decided to try it
 when I saw this colorful one on sale for $15.
  I am still not sure I am loving the trend on myself,
 but I will wear it a few more times before deciding.


Is there a trend right now that you are on the fence about?

Everyone Needs A Flirty Dress For Summer

About this time of year it just gets HOT!!
Well, it does around here, anyway.
I think everyone should have a little flirty dress
 they can pull out for the summer heat.
Something fun, free flowing and will keep you
 from melting under the bright sun!
Make sure your dress is in a fun color as well.
Oh a LBD has it's place, 
but we are talking Popsicle colors here.
They are much more fun in the dead of summer.
 I picked this little dress up on sale for $14 back in June.  Seriously! 
 I love the beaded neckline as built in jewelry.
  Popped on some big earrings and I was out the door
 for husband's birthday dinner.

Do you have a fun and flirty summer dress?
Have you worn it lately?

Yellow and Turquoise

If you have been reading my blog for a while,
then you know I am not a huge fan of the color yellow.
Since, it seems yellow is very trendy right now,
I am trying to overcome my dislike for the color.
So, baby steps it is!
This dress just has a touch of yellow in it
 and I love all the other colors.
Fresh and summery.
I suppose my dislike of the color 
came from when I was in nursing school.
Our uniforms were yellow pinstripe. 
 Wearing that EVERYDAY, was not a good look for anyone. 
 Yellow can be a hard color to pull off.  
That was many moons ago,
 so I am trying not to dislike it so much.
I think I am off to a good start with this floral maxi dress!

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Hello Friday!
Let's all have an awesome weekend.
Awkward:
  • Pen exploding in your hand in the car and trying to use hand sanitizer to neutralize the mess.  Let me say...Just DON'T try this!!
  • Forgetting your sunglasses at the pool.
  • Making a plan to go to Pinkberry and when you get there, it's no longer there.
  • About to take a sip of your drink and you spot a very large spider floating on top.
  • Thinking "Mall walking" is a good idea due the heat, then realizing they don't turn on the air until 8:00 am and you got there at 7:30.
 Awesome:
  • Celebrating husband's birthday yesterday and continuing to celebrate today.
  • Planning a trip up to New England.
  • Homegrown tomatoes, even if they aren't yours.
  • Margaritas and table side guacamole.
  • A new pair of headphones.  Not really realizing how bad the old ones were until you get the new ones. 
 A simple look for running errands. 
 Don't forget that it is fine to pair
 a dress with a pair of sneakers. 
 It's a great look, just be cautious not to pair 
a heavy sneaker with a light dress.
 I would also suggest not pairing athletic sneakers with a dress. 
Remember to keep in mind the proportions
 of your dress and the sneaker.

Do you love to wear sneakers with dresses and skirts?

Don't Let The Heat Affect Your Fashion Sense!

Are you having a harder time getting dressed in the summer?
For some reason the heat just makes you less likely to put in the effort sometimes.
Don't let the heat get to you! 
 Make an effort to try and put on something more 
than shorts at least once a week. 
 I promise you will feel better.
Really, sometimes a skirt can be cooler than shorts anyway. 
 I mean cooler in both senses of the word by the way!
So don't let the mid summer heat wave throw you
 into days of raggedy shorts, swimsuit cover-ups and old t-shirts.
  Be intentional and put on something to boost your fashion sense. 
 It will make you feel prettier, more confident and
 more energetic....REALLY!

Are you stuck in a summer fashion rut?
