Good Monday Morning Friends! I hope you all had great holiday weekend filled with fireworks, family, food and fun! Or a cozy, relaxing time spent with loved ones.
I’m linking up with Carrie, Casey and Whitney for Create28 Summer Looks today. They have created a list of 28 summer looks as prompts for what to wear for the month of July. Todays prompt calls for Summer Color Combo. I decided to take the easy way out and let my blouse do most of the heavy lifting since it combines so many pretty colors!
Speaking of shorts….Something that has been on my mind and heart for awhile, is the fear that some women have in wearing shorts. Even though it is Summer and hot and humid. I fully support women choosing to wear what feels comfortable to them and am not advocating that women MUST wear shorts. It’s just that I have read some blogs and articles lately saying that women of a certain age should not wear shorts. What?? Does that mean that since my face has wrinkles and sags a bit, that I shouldn’t show it in public? I think that is terrible! I mean, I know that my legs certainly don’t look like a lean, 20 year olds, I don’t expect then to. I’m not trying to. I’m in my 50s. Friends, I’m just trying to say that I want you to feel comfortable in what you choose to wear, and not listen to the body shaming that goes on sometimes on the internet. You are beautiful. Another blogger, Amy, from Amy’s Creative Persuits wrote a worthwhile post on this if you want to check it out.

1John 4:16 We know it so well, we’ve embraced it heart and soul, this love that comes form God. From “The Message” God loves you, just as you are.
