Hi there, hope you had a wonderful weekend. Hard to believe June is just about over, and we will be celebrating July 4th in less than a week…..I need to slow the clock down! One of my favorite subjects is fashion. I love summer dressing as it tends to be more casual, lighter and easier. I like simple classic looks in fun colors and always like to add a few new pieces at the start of the season, then fill in to take advantage of summer sales the season.

I realized I needed to add some new tops to my wardrobe and went on a top shopping spree. Found so many pretties that I thought it would make a fun Which would you choose post. Want to know your two top favorites here, most I can see with a pair of white slacks (few things don’t look great with white pants), capris, jeans and some can easily be dressed up. Almost all except one are well priced too…which is always a perk:)

So ready to see the goodies? Let’s get started…..

Every single one of these is unfortunately calling my name. Hard to narrow it down to just a few! I tend to go for things that I know will have staying power, I keep my clothes for a long time (every single size under the sun too lol) so I like things that last. I find that when I really love something, I tend to take better care of it, enjoy it more and make sure its there for the long haul.

My most favorite dress I have ever owned is almost 18 years old! It is a gorgeous dress I bought at Bergdorf Goodman, of black crepe and lace, it is as stunning today as it was the day I bought it. Only problem? It’s a size 4:) But I refuse to let go of it as it’s incentive to start shedding those unnecessary pounds. Can anyone relate? Thought so!

Thanks for stopping in, wishing you a wonderful day and start to your week. It’s your turn to vote and you can vote for your two top favorites.? Until next time…..

It was very difficult to choose because there are so my pretty ones. Right now I seem to be buying for myself so many lace ones. Always feel pretty in lace or sheer fabric. Also, a big fan of a beautiful sleeve. I bought a few bat sleeve blouses. A girl can never have enough.

For me, #20 is by far the most beautiful. Love everything about it. I also like #8, a classic.

Stephanie on

I like the light and airiness of the lace, and the way #2 fits.

I totally could see you in the DVF blue and white top! But really, any of these would be wonderful.
Happy shopping!!

They are all absolutely beautiful. (While I voted for 1 and 9, I also love 2, 12, 14, 16, 17.) Honestly, I would be happy to find each OR ANY one hanging in my closet for the summer! After gaining too much weight for my short frame, I am far more interested in calling attention to the top half of my torso than the bottom half.

I can completely relate to your keeping the ‘incentive’ dress. (I have a similar black dress that I cannot part with for the same reason, but the real kicker is my entire collection of Lilly Pulitzer skorts, tops and sweaters. I collected them over several years when I was a size 4 (or 2, or 0) and they are still hiding in the back of the rack, waiting for that ‘one day’ that hasn’t come in 10 years. I loved wearing them, and now I really miss them and I am afraid that by the time I am near that size again they will be far too youthful for me. Still I let them sit there…. as a reminder, indictment, or incentive, depending on my mood. )

HOWEVER, I am happy to report that TODAY is the day I start back to a focused and dedicated exercise routine at the gym. After a couple of years of failed exercise efforts on our own, my husband and I agreed to do it together. I am so excited! Because it is such a major life change, we resolved to not make it an ordeal and to literally celebrate each baby step along the way. (Literally…..BABY STEPS: #1 Buy FAT workout clothes (Why is it so hard to find larger size workout clothes that don’t show every bulge and roll!??!) #2 Join the gym. #3 Make arrangements with a trainer. #4 Go to the gym for an orientation and light workout. #5 Continue….(….to a healthy life habit.) Of course, I want to shed 60 lbs immediately! LOL…. but I refuse to acknowledge that. For now it is sufficient and worthy of celebration that we are on baby step #4!

As an aside, I recently read that people who exercise with a support group are far more likely to keep it up. Unfortunately, it seems that once we really NEED to get out there and get into such a routine it is a lot harder to find that support group. (I think it’s part of the female ‘perfection’ syndrome…. and also because we’re so busy wearing so many different hats for everyone except ourselves. Then there’s the fear of being judged when we first walk into that gym…especially for those of us who live in small towns.) Call me slow, but I just learned there are now ONLINE support exercise groups which offer great incentive and encouragement. I haven’t tried them, but just as your blog brings people of similar tastes together I can certainly see how the right workout blog or online forum could do the same.
