This week has been a tough one for me. Work was stressful, I didn't get a lot of sleep, and the kitty has not been adjusting well to all the changes in the apartment. Then to make matters worse, my auntie Carolyn passed away this morning. She was my grammy's sister and I spent a lot of time at her house when I was a little girl. She was a hard working single mom, an amazing cook, talented gardener, and one of the funniest people I have ever met. I haven't seen her in a few years, since she retired to Florida, but she'd call me each year on my birthday. Thankfully, my grammy was able to travel to Florida to spend some time with her sister this week.
I know it's silly, but it's amazing how clothes can drastically change my mood. Thursday morning the sun started to peak out, and the forecast only called for scattered showers so I grabbed this bright sundress and my mood was instantly elevated.
This dress is going to be one of my favorites this summer. It hits me right at the knee and it has short sleeves, so I can wear it to work on really hot days without having to layer anything over it! Since Thursday was nice and cool I decided to go a little neon and layer it with my bright yellow cardi. I stuck with nude flats because there was more than enough color in the dress.
Dress: Old Navy
Cardigan: Old Navy two years ago
Sorry for starting this post off on a sad note. Carolyn's passing was expected, she's been sick for a while and now she's at peace. I am thankful to have had her in my life and I'm so ready for the weekend.
