Tulle Layering Dress Returns


Hi! Did your July pass as quickly as mine? There is much I wanted to accomplish this summer, but as the school year begins in less than a week for us here in Georgia, I realize that those 10 songs I wanted to learn on the guitar will have to wait for fall.

I painted and revamped one bedroom (with the help of two friends!), painted and revamped a closet in another bedroom, cleared through a lot of junk in our garage (still more to go), kept the blog alive and tried to squeeze fun in between - we still need to make some memories! 

Though I'd like to paint our two bathrooms, two more bedrooms, as well as pay someone to paint the main rooms (even with a small home I need that done licketdy split!) and revamp one wall in my kitchen, time is getting away from me. You see, I'm going to homeschool my twins. This will be my first ever homeschooling experience. In addition, there is a women's event coming up next month that I play a part in and I'm getting my fall work schedule lined up. I guess the house will have to wait!

Looking on the bright side, I still need to dress for each day so that means creativity will continue to thrive somewhere! ;) And this outfit inspiration came from I don't know where. What I do know is that I wanted to make use of this super fun, tulle layering dress. 

I wore it to church this past Sunday morning with a blazer and nude heels. No pic opportunity came about, but that afternoon I went for a more casual vibe and had one of my "photographers" with me. 


"Mommy, I like helping you and taking pictures for your blog."



It was easy to go from dressy to casual. I didn't bother changing out my jewelry from the morning get up.



I threw on my muscle tee, a hat and switched to my new black gladiator sandals.

Well my friends, I close with thoughts of Splat's new cupcake menu for August. What else is special about August?? It's my birthday month...I'm going to be hitting another milestone this year and I plan on celebrating the whole month long. haha! Anyway, along with this the cupcake adventure lives on! As the winner of a cupcake a day for a full year, I have consumed some, treated my boys, hubby, family members and even surprised some friends with these delicious treats since the month of May. I still have 9 sweet months to go and I plan on using up as many as I can!!

Here's to another month of fun!
