I know what you’re thinking… I’m not wearing a dress! If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw the big announcement! We adopted a baby girl last week. We received the call the day before our Chic at Every Age shoot.

Funny thing happened when we met for our photo shoot. I brought all of my shoes and accessories to Dallas, but NOT the actual clothes! Womp womp. Needless to say, I had A LOT on my mind!

Anyhow, the girls were so awesome about it, and it turned out to be one of our funniest shoots! Don’t you just LOVE that first picture of Cathy “guzzling” the Budweiser!! It just cracks me up! Nothing says 4th of July like red, white, blue, and some beer! ;)

THE STYLE Rx: Get patriotic with an off-the-shoulder dress! It’s easy to wear and keeps you cool while looking stylish!

Cathy looks amazing in that white off-the-shoulder dress. I love that it has shoulder straps so you can wear a normal bra with it. Heather has that fabulous ruffle number (a darker shade of blue than mine seen here) and wore it with amazing lace-up wedges. Those are definitely on my wish list.

I was SUPPOSED to wear this striped denim off-the-shoulder dress with red accessories. (I left my red sac du jour in the car because I was so flustered about forgetting my clothes!) Cathy let me borrow her stars and stripes scarf to go with my American flag sunglasses! Brooke is red haute in that tie-sleeve dress. So cute!

Are you one to wear flags or red, white, and blue for 4th of July? Mr. S is crazy about red and blue, so he looks patriotic year round!

  1. It’s still a great post, and it’s nice to know that you do the same things I do!! I did that exact same thing a couple months ago when I went over to my mom’s for our photo shoot—of course, she only lives 5 minutes from my house, so it was no biggie to run back home!
    Congrats on the adoption—how very exciting!

      LOL! Yes, if only I was 5 minutes away from Dallas (but it’s more like 45-60 minutes)! I think we all do things like that from time to time!

      Thank you on the adoption! We are ecstatic (and VERY tired)!

      BTW, love the silver DIY shoes! So cute!

    You might not be wearing an off the shoulder dress but you do look wonderful and perfectly fit in with the theme, Accessories can really make a difference!

    So excited for you, a new baby girl! Hope little M loves his little sister, I’m sure he’s being a really helpful big brother!

      Thanks Mica!! Yes, Cathy was a lifesaver that day!

      And Little M is really trying hard to be a good big brother! It’s all so new for him (and US too) so we are getting used to everything! I don’t know how you do it! This time, I am SO TIRED Mica!!

      • Mica says:

        Aww it’s an adjustment for sure, it’s good he’s excited and helpful. Just like with your first, it’s tough going but you get more sleep eventually! :) Those early morning feeds stop being such a regular occurrence and give you a little more energy to deal with baby and a toddler. You’ll be doing great Sam, as you’ve been doing a wonderful job with your son :)

    I love the dress you were supposed to wear! MLM makes such amazing off the shoulder pieces (definitely my summer obsession).

      I’ve been loving ALL of your off the shoulder tops, especially the last one worn with cropped flares. SO GOOD!

  5. […] is the first photo shoot since Baby MJ has come along. (Remember this photo shoot with the gals! I forgot my outfit because we found out about her the day before.) She is SUCH a different baby […]
