Strapless Silk Dress…Happy 46th Bday to me! (almost 2 years late! haha)


Pictures originally taken 7/18/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
Honestly, I’ve never been a huge fan of my birthday…not the getting older. It’s NOT the number!  Although the aches and pains can suck it.
•🤣
But, it was such an amazing day! I had some dear friends drop stuff off, had so many amazing texts, and social media messages.
☺️❤️
Then, my parents came over and we had a socially distanced dinner that was just what I wanted! (Seen in stories)
❤️

Most importantly…I didn’t COOK or CLEAN!!
🙌🏻
If you watched our stories, youl’l know that the original pics I took last night were slightly out of focus (problems of using a tripod) Truth be told, nobody but me would have noticed (swipe to see the pic of me and the Huz) if you’re zoom in, the leaves are crisp, we are not. Honestly, I was ok with it and was just happy to have captured some moments last night-ESPECIALLY with the Huz who hates pics!! But…
❤️
I decided to go back out this morning and take more, and I’m so glad I did! I got Maya out of her jammies!! We got some magical #SunFlare #rainbowflare thank you #goldenhour in the morning!!
✨💫

A belated birthday present…
🌈

And then….a few days later, I posted a close up…
My newest style revelation-why did it take me so long?
😳
Taking the attached belt off of your….dress, jumpsuit, romper…
🤗
And making it a headband!
💃
I’m not a matchy matchy person, yet I SO appreciate the option!
❤️
BUT…if I can add my own belt, or just take it away…and then add the attached belt to my hair? WIN!
👏🏻
Have you tried it? You SHOULD!

Swipe to see another option I wore yesterday but haven’t posted.
🙌🏻
Do you have a dress/jumpsuit/romper that you can now TOTALLY see doing this too?!
⁉️
Tag me! I’m new to the whole community trying thing, so….here we go!
🙈
But seriously, I want to know!!

This was taken on my actual birthday. I messed up the focus and most of the pics were just tossable. BUT, I sharpened it up A LOT and I love that I got it. Even if it’s not perfectly crisp.

On me…

Dress-  Amanda Uprichard (ebay)
Belt- Reiss (thrifted)
Shoes- Ugg “Hanneli” (thrifted)
On Maya…
Dress- It’s MINE!!  It’s soooo short on me, so it’s perfect on her! (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
Ummmm…why is she pulling my hair?  ON MY BIRTHDAY?!!
