This is what I ended up wearing for my admittedly low-key 4th of July celebrations. Honestly, it was one of the nicest I've had in at least a couple of years. My dad grilled (turkey burgers and hot dogs -- pretty standard fare but delicious nonetheless), and I mentioned before that my best friend Wayne and I went to go watch the fireworks nearby. It was one of the better fireworks displays I've seen as of late, and it was so nice to spend time with my best friend (who I haven't seen much of lately, due to his health issues). I wore this outfit there, though I later wished I had worn sweatpants like Wayne did! Luckily, I remembered to bring warm blankets and a sweatshirt.

This darling little dress was originally a Flock Together swap from Elana, but she generously let me keep it after I borrowed it! It's such a sweet little piece for summer, and I thought it was perfect for the 4th. It's not technically the most flattering dress I own, but it's so breezy and even though it's a dressier fabric, it's perfect for more casual occasions. And I love the little row of buttons down the front!
I've definitely been in better spirits the past couple of days. Thank you to all of you who left such kind, thoughtful comments on my last post. I suppose that having bad days for "no reason" is sort of part of the whole process. Like everything else, I'm figuring things out as I go along, and I'm trying to find joy in life's simple pleasures. I guess that's all anyone can do, really!
Have a great Wednesday!
