Summer Dresses…


 I say all the time that I’m not a “dress” girl, but over and over when I wear them, I think… “Why don’t I wear more dresses??!”  This is one of my favorite summer dresses.  I’ve been wearing it every summer for the past 8+ years (am I the only one that gauges time on occasions?  I know I wore this on our honeymoon which was 6 years ago, and it wasn’t new… 🙂 )  It’s a convertible dress-meaning you can wear it a ton of different ways, depending on how you tie it.  It’s a no brainer to take on vacation because of it’s versatility, comfort, oh and spray it a few times with a water bottle and wrinkles be GONE!

I love that I can wear it around my neighborhood with flip flops and it’s totally casual.  Yet, if I throw on some fancier sandals-date night!!Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-1 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-2Let’s all just pretend that I don’t have a total farmer tan, ok?  Great… Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-3Twirling.  Cos, she makes it look so fun! 😉 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-4 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-5 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-6 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-7 Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-8Loooooove this next shot!  Look at her face!!  LOVE!!Blog Rachel Pally Mexico Convertible Dress Silver Havaianas-9Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-1Hahaha!Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-2There was a ribbon hanging down from our neighbors tree.  I’m assuming from a balloon?  In any case, she was determined to grab it!Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-3Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-4Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-5Oh, and could I Photoshop that GINORMOUS bruise from Maya’s leg?  Yes, faster than I can type this sentence.  But…that’s toddler life.  And, that’s what I want her and ME to remember.  She basically looks like Child Protective Services should haul me in at any minute, but…she’s having fun!!!Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-6My favorite…Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-7And…there are still people in our neighborhood who water their lawns… Which is heaven for Maya.  Preeeeeetty sure they wouldn’t be overly excited that she was running through their yard, but whatever.  OOPS!  And, truth be told, this happened at the BEGINNING of our walk, but I thought it looked better to have it at the end hahaha.  Thankfully the sun dried her dress and hair out quickly!Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-8Blog Mignone Butterfly Sparkle Twirl Dress Umi Silver Sandals-9On me…
