Hello, and welcome to Dressed for My Day! I’m so thrilled that you stopped in today. My goal is to inspire and help women like you and me to dress beautifully and appropriately for our unique days so we can engage graciously and authentically with those around us and influence them well. And one of the reasons I do just that is because there are younger women watching us. Oh yes they are!
Today I’m pairing up with my 25 year-old daughter Abigail to share some sweet casual summer looks. You’ll see there’s quite a difference in how we dress. We’re definitely generations apart! But it’s important to me that Abigail sees her mom as someone who still puts in the effort to look and feel beautiful.
One of the easiest ways to bring a contemporary vibe to our look is simply to wear current colors. When we older gals wear a little color it brings us out of the shadows and back onto center stage.
Okay, get ready to meet my gal! Abigail keeps me hopping. She’s full of life and energy. Oh my.
Abby has a real knack for taking photos with her Fuji Instax mini camera. She has used this little camera constantly for the past few years. If you’re ever looking for a fun gift for a young woman or teen girl, this camera is it.
Another thing Abigail is stuck on is her Teva original universal sandals. I think these are her third pair. She lives in these things all summer and beyond. And she swears they are oh so comfortable. My girl has even been known to wear them with socks. Oh, yes she does!
Oh to be 25!!
I know I was short on words today. Honestly, when I look at photos of Abby there just are no words. Hahaha! But I hope you enjoyed our casual summer looks. they’re full of pretty colors, comfortable pieces and fun accessories.
Today you’ll need to shop the links in the captions of the photos. I can’t do shopping widget with J.Jill merchandise, so we’ll just leave it at that. But let me know if you have any questions. By the way, the J.Jill links are giving me a hard time for some reason. So if they redirect you to their home page, just copy and paste the item name into their search engine.

Blessed for My Day
Do you let your joy show? Of course, we may need to cultivate our joy before it overflows enough to joy. How can we do that? I find my joy grows as I spend time with others who have joy, as I recount my blessings and name them one by one, as I sing praise songs and as I simply praise the Lord for the things He has miraculously done in my life.
It is good for our joy to show, for it to burst forth with laughter. Then others see our joy and grow curious about the Source. Let’s be sure to let our joy overflow profusely today.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us;
we are glad. ~ Psalm 126:2-3
