Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine was SUPER chill, I virtually did nothing and loved it (I feel like I say that every week). I did go to the lake on Saturday and visited my grandma on Sunday with my family, but other than that I laid low and was in bed by 10 PM all weekend.
The older I get, the more I realize what a complicated holiday Mother’s Day is. Last year I unexpectedly got really sad on Mother’s Day. I don’t want to have children, but at times I feel like a failure for making that choice. On Mother’s Day it can be especially hard. I read a blog post first thing on Sunday and Jen shared this image (below), which gave me so much peace and clarity. It made me realize that I’m not the only one who finds Mother’s Day complicated; there are lots of situations that can make it tough. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for those who have lost their mothers, or a child, or those who desperately want children and are having trouble conceiving.
On a lighter note, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite dresses of the season! If you haven’t noticed, yellow is a HUGE trend this season. I LOVE wearing yellow. It’s a tough color for people to wear, but we’ve been selling it really well at the store this season. If yellow isn’t your thing, this dress comes in a cute coral or black (which is on sale!) The fit of this dress is what makes it. I love a wrap dress, but I have a tried on a lot of them this season and it’s hard to get the fit right. A lot of times to make them tight enough the fabric ends up pulling in the back, but this one fits perfect. It’s also a great length for me (I’m 5’5″), but I put a few longer options below, too. And some more reasonable options, too; since gingham is such a huge trend, you can find it everywhere, in all price points! Shop my look below!

My dress also comes in coral and black (which is on sale!):
Gingham is so popular right now, there are cute pieces everywhere. Here are a few cute ones from Forever 21:
And one of my favorite brands, Rails, has some cute little dresses. These are great if you want something a little longer:

Do y’all love the gingham trend as much as I do? Thanks for reading!
