If you live in the southern region of the country, a linen dress is a must-have, hands down, let’s fight this humidity kinda dress! Summer is totally here to stay. I walked outside this morning and instantly had to fan myself because it was THAT hot. In weather like this, where the air just sits on your entire body, you need the lightest possible clothing! Some may say I am being dramatic, but it is what it is (and that’s hot).

I came across Mint Springs Boutique and after scrolling through the website, instantly needed this dress in my closet. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the linen material, pin stripe detail and those sleeves, duh! I am learning that sometimes the simplest outfits are the most noticed. Case and point, I wore this exact outfit to work earlier this week and I am not kidding when I say that about five different ladies complimented me on this dress! I was so excited because obviously I know this dress is adorable but you always feel good when others agree. I am also obsessed with this top and these scalloped shorts, so cute! In addition to being reassured that it’s best to keep it simple from time to time, I wanted to share two other topics that have been on my mind this week:

  • I don’t know anything– Haha wait, what?! Okay, let me explain. I can’t remember the exact quote but I was reading a magazine and this specific article was about a woman and she explained how in her 20’s she thought she knew everything there was to know. As she entered her thirties, she explained that she learned she literally doesn’t know anything. The point of the article was that no one really knows what they’re doing. Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks and just do your best, always. There’s always something new to learn and we should just be open to what we don’t know! I found encouragement in her honestly because I can’t tell you how many times I think to myself, “I have no idea what I am doing,” and then I go to YouTube to find a tutorial haha.
  • I miss This is Us– Anyone else? If you haven’t watched Season 1, permission to binge watch this weekend. I may do the same haha. I can’t wait for Season 2! I came across this video today and my heart was warmed/I need the show to come back on right now!

I hope you have a great day. Thank you so much for reading and for allowing me to ramble about the things I find inspiration in daily. Because if a girl can’t ramble here, then where can she?
