Fierce OOTD: Ready for the Summer

Blue Maxi Dress

After a few rainy, windy, and dreary weekends, we finally caught a break down here with a beautiful, sunny weekend.  The temps were way into the 80’s and not a cloud in the sky.  Forget Spring, it’s already Summer down here and I’m pretty pysched!  It’s always been my favorite time of the year (even though the heat can be unbearable sometimes!).  It’s the time for those cookouts, family beach trips, and pool parties, which is what I went to last Sunday.  Not only did I get to wear the newest maxi dress to my collection, it also gave me an excuse to get a new bathing suit that will accommodate this baby belly. :)

While shopping for a dress for a baby shower I went to a few weeks back, I found this blue maxi dress on the Clearance rack at Target.  I just saw it online the day before and loved it but sadly it was only sold online.  Looks like somebody who wore the exact size I needed returned it to the store just in time for me to snatch it up.  The best part?  It was only $7!!  Even the cashier couldn’t believe it!  It’s super comfortable and I’m pretty sure I can wear it after the baby is here.

A week or two later I scooped up these shoes at Old Navy.  I love the fact that it gives me the height I’m missing from my heels while being comfortable at the same time.  Add in my newest bauble bracelet and my summer hat and your girl was ready to go!


I had such a blast lounging by the pool with a cup of Iced Tea in hand, a plate full of good food, and surrounded by great conversation.  I couldn’t ask for a better Sunday!


How was your weekend?
