So here I am in this super cute button down linen white dress!! Obsessed with the button down look and the off the shoulder flutter sleeves. Seriously, How cute is this white dress going to be when we go to Martha’s Vineyard. So excited!
So this week is going to be a big week for me, and we leave for vacation Friday… between getting ready for my Wed meeting, planning our first family vacation, finding a house sitter/dog sitter, I am on the verge of a meltdown. I have been feeling anxious (a lot anxious lately) I have some important things happening this month. I am losing sleep, losing weight, and my teeth are about to turn into dust because I grind my teeth so much (in my sleep) I have the worst TMJ (which is jaw pain) it will end up needing surgery someday. There are times I can hardly open my mouth to fit a banana in it. ugh. So white is actually a pretty ironic color for me to wear (I could not spell color here and needed to google it- lmao- need more coffee- it’s really early) White is a color that promotes peace and calm feelings, comfort and hope. These are all things that I need so bad right now. I posted a quote yesterday on my IG (sort of one I just made up) I was wearing a rainbow-colored dress and I began thinking wow life is what you make it, mine might now be perfect but I love it… This week I plan to constantly remind myself its ok not to be perfect, whatever happens, happens, and I will find peace and comfort in all things I can.
I really want you all no matter what you are going through (because everyone has something) … remember that hardships will come and go, your attitude is what will create the memory for you, if you go through something horrible keep in your mind filled with as much optimism and positivity as possible and when it passes you will look back and have a different, healthier feeling than if you let the horrible overcome you and drag you down.
I didn’t really plan on going in this direction with this post about a white dress… but, I think I ended up with a really beautiful message. White after labor day is totally acceptable. The color white is so strong that it promotes peace and calm feelings. I am looking forward to seeing a white blanket of snow out my window this winter and smelling that crispy cold New England air. There is nothing like it!
