Trending: Lace Shorts

image

Lace shorts have been trending each spring/summer for the last couple of years now and continue to be seen. I have noticed them on many well known fashion bloggers,  socialites and on the very young and impressionable. The style is generally super short, girly, chic and ultra sexy. It’s ultimately your sleepwear meets day wear look.

Although this trend cute, it is not for everyone. I think you have to be slim with “killer legs” to make this look work and those are two things I am not! I am just too curvaceous for such a style. Even if I did rock the look, I would constantly be pulling them down or worried about every nook and cranny trying to show. However, if you got it, flaunt it…modestly that is! ūüėČ

Oh my, how did I forget to post this one from Easter? I guess because that weekend was so great and long! There’s nothing more wonderful then spending time with your family, listening to a great word at church about the true meaning of Easter and having several Easter egg hunts ;-). Honestly, my kids had so much candy, it was as if the went trick or treating! I still have a bag that I think I am going to throw out…especially since I already picked out the good stuff!

Trending: Birkenstock Sandals

image

What is comfortable, unattractive and comes in more than one color? Well Birkenstock sandals of course! These sandals looked more like men sandals than anything else when they were first made back in 1897. There were no glitter, hot pink color or fun straps to choose from. Today, even with the added additions, I must admit they are still not my favorite. However, someone, somewhere decided to dare and try them, not for looks, but for comfort. The creative implementing of cork provides a flexible arch support and have been known to help those with feet issues. Many celebrities sport them today for comfort and great ease, sending these sandals into “must have” status. So whether for fashion or health reasons, if you have been secretly contemplating on getting them, go ahead because everyone seems to be doing them!

Here are a couple of other styles to check out for the entire family!

Happy Resurrection Day!

image

I hope everyone has enjoyed this day spending it with family, friends, good food and most importantly remembering the reason we are all here. Christ gave himself freely on the cross to death for our sins. After 3 days he arose  and gave a great commission to all of his disciples which can be found in my favorite scripture, Mathew 28:18-20:

18¬†“…All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20¬†Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Have you told anyone about the love of Christ lately? Happy Resurrection Day!
