The Summer Style Challenge is in full swing and I have to say, the ladies are really bringing it! I have been so impressed to see so many of the challengers step out of their comfort zone and try – no, not just try, but really rock my new favorite – the kimono!
Another look that has been really popular are the palazzo pants. Wether you call them palazzo pants, pajama pants, or soft pants, they have taken the challenge by storm! I have to say that I was not sold on them until I saw everyone sporting the most darling outfits featuring them. Since I had some unexpected extra time yesterday, I hit up a couple more stores and finally found a pair that I love. Sadly, no picture yet. Hope to remedy that soon!
Let’s get on with the recap, shall we?

Funny story about how I came to have my photo taken in the maxi dress. Hubby had been away, so I have had to employ other family members to help me out lately. I needed to stop by my daughters place after church to so she could loan me her Kindle. Since it is a busy, city street, it’s hard to park so she was just going to come down and hand it to me. When she arrived, I jumped out of the car and handed her my camera and pleaded “Will you take a quick pic?!” Right in the middle of the street with the car running. Now that takes mad skills. And probably a dash of stupidity.
So now you are all caught up with the Summer Style Challenge thus far. You can check out days 1-3 here.
My favorite blogging buddies are playing along too, so be sure and check their takes on the challenge!

Psalm 52:8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever. God wants us to trust him. Practice trusting him throughout the day. The more you do, the easier it will become.
Have a lovely day my friends!
