There's nothing like a good smack down from life to remind you that you're only one person.

It's been a really busy year, but June blew into my life like a whirlwind. I ended the month of May by getting on my 1st plane (yes plane, and it was more like 4 planes) for work. During the month of June hubby and I moved into a new home which was hectic because for the first time we moved all of our stuff in together plus our wedding gifts. To top it all off the pet love of my life, Benjamin, had to have an emergency surgery and unfortunately passed away. Talk about crushed! When my health started to slip a little around mid-June I knew that it was time to take a little me time and that's exactly what I did!

Fast forward to July and I'm feeling like myself again. The month of July has been a breath of fresh air for me! I'm finally getting back to working towards my 2015 goals. I took a little break this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July with family and friends. I decided that I wanted to keep it pretty easy breezy and casual so I opted for these polka dot draw swing pants and this pleated ruffle blouse. I paired it with a double necklace and some gold slides and hubby and I were out the door in a flash to enjoy the 4th of July festivities. I opted for red lips and nails to finish the look. 

With life feeling so frantic and hurried, it felt so good being able to cut out all of the fuss and wear something simple and freeing that still made a statement. This look was so comfortable and cool in the hot weather we've experiencing down in the South. I'll definitely be styling these pants again in the near future. Speaking of the near future, it's full steam ahead and I'm working on something special for my VIPs and you're invited to join in on the fun by signing up here

I hope you enjoyed your 4th and I hope you'll stop back by for some more girl time with me!
