Happy almost 4th of July from all of us at “Chic at Every Age“!! I hope you enjoy looking at these fun photos as much as we enjoyed shooting them! Lots of crazy things happened this hot summer day, where should I start? Well, first of all, I’ll start off with the fact that it was 4 pm last Thursday and the heat index was like 115 degrees or something like that and it was soooooo incredibly hot that I was literally dripping sweat, and I usually don’t sweat! My hair was a disaster and the front of my dress was drenched, thank you, Mary for editing that out of these photos somehow! Second, sweet, gorgeous, Sam of Style of Sam who does our 30’s look forgot her dress, as you can see she’s in jeans, but still looking as chic as ever! Here’s some very exciting news regarding Sam – she had just gotten the news the day before that the baby girl she was adopting was ready to be picked up in only 2 days!! We were all obviously so happy for Sam, with all of that stress and excitement I would have forgotten more than just my dress that day for sure! Third, we were shooting in Deep Ellum because of this extremely cool American flag wall which was a fabulous idea except that when we got there, a police car was parked right in front of the wall, total bummer! Until we had the crazy idea to shoot in front of it with our Budweiser beer cans (I don’t drink beer by the way) which makes this even funnier! I think the point of this story is to make life fun, no matter what obstacles it may throw at you, it’s always good to make lemonade out of lemons!
Now onto my blue off the shoulder dress, this is exactly what I want to throw on when it’s 105 degrees out, not jeans, not even a maxi dress or shorts, but a simple, short, off the shoulder dress because it’s loose, comfortable and keeps me cool. Off the shoulder dresses are the absolute perfect summer dress, so versatile, they can easily be dressed up or down. I paired mine with my favorite summer wedges from M Gemi, you can view another post I did in these wedges here. I have worn this dress on a date night, to Sunday brunch, and as a cover up to the pool. This dress runs big so order one size down.
