Happy 4th of July!




 This was the outfit I wore to work in honor of the fourth of July. I didn't have any plans this year since July fourth was  in the middle of week. Plus, my husband and I are pretty tired out since there was party or family gathering every weekend for the month of June. It is nice to have a day off just to relax and rest.

Wearing H&M dress as a top sz -S, The Limited Skirt sz-0, Forever21 Belt -sz S/M, Ann Taylor Pump sz-5.5

I always seem to be in a perpetual search for peplum dresses so I was excited to find this one after many trips to the mall. I loved the designs but I wish it came in another color other than white. White is nice since it is like a blank canvas that goes well with any color but when I wear white I somehow always end up staining it.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July.

    1. Thanks Elaine. No plan this year which turn out to be a good thing because I had a really big migraine and pretty much spend the afternoon in bed.
