Simplicity At It's Finest

    It's been pretty steaming the past few days which makes my days so long and boring! haha. If I had it my way, I would be spending my life indoors in my air conditioned room (only 1 room contains AC) however, I seem to be going out a lot. I spend Friday out shopping for groceries while yesterday I was out for ~3 hours doing the laundry with my mom. Every year we have to go on this huge laundry mat trip to wash all our winter blankets, jackets, and covers. Our washing machine could never handle that huge load and to prevent any disasters from happening (like in the past), we choose to wash them outside instead! Aside from those trips, I must go outside to run everyday and play tennis.

For my outfit today, I chose to wear a a dress to keep cool. This dress is on the shorter side, so I paired it with a pair of my running/racing shorts! The design of this dress is super unique in my opinion. The dress buttons up in the front and has a belt in the middle. The back of the dress is my favorite part. It resembles a corset and while I have never owned one, I've always envied those who had one. haha. I don't even know where I would wear a corset too, but it would be cool just to have one.

   We actually have fireworks that are going to take place next Sat. and I am thinking that this would be a very nice outfit for that night. Every year in July, our city and the one adjacent to us put on this spectacular show of fireworks. The fireworks are exploded over the river that separates us and is always amazing every year. People gather around just to watch these fireworks. My family and I are fortunate enough to reside in a location where we can see the fireworks without going anywhere. We even have a porch on the 2nd floor which gives us the perfect view of the fireworks without having to deal with other people haha (some people can get quite wild)

kohls blue ring

Along with this outfit, I wore a pair of flip flops and a ring. This ring is so beautiful! It's actually my sister's ring since it actually fits her finger, but she was nice enough to let me borrow it for the photos. I also was able to find some time to paint my nails. I always find myself looking at my fingernails and thinking, I should really paint them, but 90% of the time, I never act on those thoughts haha. Well yesterday I did and chose to use a color called Must-Have Iris from Sally Hansen. I think the color is lovely and matched well with my skin color!

  I cannot wait for the fireworks! Only 6 more days! Until then, I must get myself some bug spray because the mosquitoes this year have been crazy. My mom went to wal mart to try and get some for me last week, but they were sold out... =( From what I heard, there are apparently 3x more mosquitoes this year in our area than last year =0... No wonder my legs are covered in bug bites.  haha

Dress - Tj Maxx  (sorry no link...)
Flip Flops - Kohls
Ring- Kohls

Did you get to see any fireworks this July?
What do you think of the back of my dress?
Who's dealing with swarms of mosquitoes like me haha?
