I was baby free when I ran into Olivia's Market to pick up some last minute Memorial Day odds and ends. An ice cold bottle of Rose and some fresh asparagus stalks topped the list.
I was sweaty from a long hot lunchtime stroller walk and an afternoon Dailey Method class. I broke my cardinal rule and dressed in gym clothes and little makeup. Just a holiday... Who cared?
But then I saw Miss El-Yes and her beautiful BBQ ensemble. So fresh and easy- hair up in a bun with a strapless dress and metallic flats. And this is exactly why I try to dress each day. Her whole look took little work to put together, but left a lovely impression and made her feel pretty. Miss El-Yes seemed effortlessly BBQ ready.
Just like DVF said, "Feel like a woman. Wear a dress." What a great reminder as I kick off my first summer as a Mommy.
