Fashion Friday Photo #27 - Summery

In honor of summer and hurricane season does start tomorrow, June 1, I thought I would do some hhopefully nice summer wear.

Starting with this pretty lace beach dress/ bathing suit cover-up.

From Elle Spain magazine

So sweet and elegant with just enough sexiness to it

This is from Lee Oliveira  site's On the street after Roberto Cavalli, Milan. Not a fan of yellow but this looks good on her and her hair looks like it hadn't seen a brush or comb in two weeks or she just left a wind tunnel. It's nice that her shoes and the tips of her hair match. Very LSU

I absolutely love this palazzo pants outfit

And this is cute too. The out fit that is. Just wondering about her legs may just be the picture

To finish ona similar note as I started, crochet back flounce crop top

Mother's Day 2013

I wish each of you that are a mother a Happy Mother's Day and for those that have their mothers and grandmothers or whatever mother-figure you've had in your life hug them tighter than usual, because I can't do that anymore.

Sorry to be a downer but this is a hard Mother's Day for my family because the Matriarch, my Maw Maw, died April 14 of this year. Even though my Mother had three sisters, Maw Maw was really the last thread I had to my own mother, who died when I was eight, and I just feel so empty and sad. My Mom (step-mother) did the best she could, I suppose, and I guess in the end I was hers, but I just really missed the hugs. Still do.

I guess this melancholy feeling has been with me all week but I had been too busy to notice up until a couple of days ago and so...well.. I don't really know, I just feel empty. If I feel like this I hate to think what my three aunts are feeling like, especially my youngest who was heavily relied upon by my Maw Maw.

Anyway, I hope everyone has wonderful Mother's Day and remember to hug tighter than normal and fill it with love.
