What to buy on a Wednesday...dresses

As I was growing up I remember me and my mom going shopping for pretty fabric, ruffles and matching buttons.  I always wore pretty dresses on Sundays...pretty dresses she had specially handmade for my by this lovely old lady name Polita.  Polita sew beautiful dresses!

But my tween and teens years came and I told my mom I didn't want to wear dresses anymore!  Then came the years when I started going to church and nobody would make me wear a dress or a skirt!   All of a sudden dresses came back to my closet I guess I started liking boys and now at this point in my life I am back to no dresses at all!

But I have this urge to wear dresses again this spring and summer seasons I will be 40 this year and want to feel pretty again I'd like to shave my legs and feel feminine!  The problem I have...I hate showing too much skin!  A small cleavage is fine, nothing above the knee, and absolutely no spaghetti straps!  Picky aren't I??

So I browsed etsy to get me going on some inspiration and this is what I found!

 I absolutely could wear any of these summer dresses i love the length, some shoulder shown 
in there...something new for me but I'd be willing to try it!

This one is flirty and feminine!  I love the length too!

I like the neck and the color on this one!  I could wear this one with a shrug or a 
bolero to cover my shoulders!  by laurafauna

I loved the 3/4 sleeves on this one and the collar details!

I loved this soft cotton dress and the tie neck detail!

Notice most of them are pain colors??  yup that's me, not a lot of prints.  I will be looking out for dresses this season and promise that if I find some that I really like I will post pictures of me wearing them! Promise!  Pinky Promise!!


  1. Somehow you made me want a dress again ;)) Is it the age??? Lol! But, oh, those 4 ladies under the tree look like Divas, so I want be one of them... :)))

  2. I can't wait for the day that you post pictures of you in a dress, I know you are going to look so beautiful! :) Sometimes it's nice to switch it up and be daring by wearing / trying something new when it comes to our wardrobes.
    I never knew how to walk in heels and always wanted to, so that's one change and risk I took in the name of fashion recently :)

    I love dresses and could use more in my closet! :) I love that dress by Lirola!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement Marz! xoxo
