Well hello! And welcome to Dressed for My Day. I’m glad you dropped in for a little style inspiration. The number one blog post ever at Dressed for My Day was this one that I published last year. In fact, that may be the blog post that originally brought you my direction. In that post, Instead of Shorts? Wear These 11 Alternatives, I shared modern styles that you can wear during the heat of the summer if you just don’t want to wear shorts. So for today’s YouTube video I decided to offer those same sorts of tips, but with up-to-date offerings.
Which camp are you in?
- Alternatives? Why would I ever want to wear anything besides shorts during the summer?
- I love my shorts, but variety is the spice of life!
- Hmm, if I’m burning up I’ll put on shorts…but I won’t go out in public in them.
- Nope! No shorts in my wardrobe at all!
We’re all different. And as we get older I think we all realize the necessity of giving each other a little grace when it comes to our wardrobe peculiarities. Aging is not for the faint of heart, is it? Hahaha! So whether you wear shorts most of the time during the summer or none of the time, I think you’ll find something in today’s video that you like.
Now not all the clothing or accessories shown in the video are new or available. But don’t you worry. I’ve created a shopping widget with lots of options based on the suggestions I gave in today’s episode.
When you watch the video on the YouTube channel, you’ll find the links to all the clothing and accessories in the video that’s available in the Description Box. I’m copying and pasting that information here, too. But you’ll also find most of the “instead of shorts” items in the shopping widget below.
By the way, many of the items that are available are on sale. So click through for the price. For instance, at Talbots they’ve extended Friends & Family with a new twist. Now you can get 3 items for 50% off, 2 for 40% off or 1 for 30% off. Hmmm. I may have to look things over again!
Blessed for My Day
We really shouldn’t be surprised when we discover that we’re not in sync with the world around us. But for some reason I’m always caught a little off guard when I begin to feel like I’m walking against the current rather than going with the flow. Have you been feeling that under current lately, too?
Let’s allow God’s Word to anchor us when the push and shove of emotions and appeals and even conventional wisdom begin to toss us first one way and then another. We don’t need to be surprised if we find that we feel outnumbered by those who are going in a different direction either. Instead, we can cling to the authority of God’s Word and allow it to keep us grounded and in step with our Lord.
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:13-14
