I first saw this Taylor and Sage dress on Nordstrom Rack and fell in love with it. The top is very much like the bralettes that every blogger babe on instagram seems to have. (Wish those damned things fit my chest a bit better. They dont. Anyways, the bottom of the dress is bold and colorful.  I had to have this dress. HAD TO HAVE! The first day I wore it, I wanted to go and take photos of it, and well…my littlest decided the dress needed strawberries. To the dry cleaner, or rather I broke out the dry cleaning kit by Dryel. Thank goodness the stain came out. And that meant I could shoot this outfit at a later day. Which I did!

I felt so good in this outfit, I was having a great day. Until the heat got to us, and my son was sick on the way home. If you read my instagram you will see a post about that. I am writing this late today, a blog post meant to be on the blog last night to post today. And that didn’t happen. My children come first and when they don’t feel well, no one gets anything done. I was up and down all night with each kid. So, I am a bit tired today. And my blog mojo keeps getting tested,it is really hurtful and deflating when someone you care about says “no one cares about what dress you are wearing.” OUCH. Then you think, what if they are right? What if no one cares? My self esteem was already crap, saying that made it so much worse.  It makes you re-evaluate your blog, yourself, and things around you. The whole comment made by this person was going to be the title of this post, but then I figured that was not a good idea. Too much of a depressing downer title.

By the time we got to the outlets to shoot this outfit, my makeup started to do that awesome thing where it separates ON MY FACE. It is melting in a weird way, and it looks like I need to exfoliate really bad. Truth is my makeup was turning into a weird mess in this humidity and heat. GOD FL sucks when it comes to that.  In Florida, foundation may only last a few hours or less. I have found powder foundations work best in summer. Even though the  Tarte Shape tape did alright until we got to the outlets and I was walking about.  And even though I was in what seems like an airy dress(and it is) that didn’t stop me from sweating A LOT. YUCK.
