Brown Girl. Yellow Dress. Bare feet.
Feb 2, 2021
I was always a girly little tomboy; I loved playing handball with my male cousins but also loved trying on my aunt’s new clothes. In my childhood days you could definitely find me outside playing handball, annihilating my friends in pocking because my left hand was always super strong or jumping rope barefoot in the yard.
I always loved being barefoot.
It’s just something about it being closer to earth that gave me a sense of peace and tranquility. My mom and grandmother hated to see me outside without shoes on, especially if I was wearing a dress. So on this day when I ran outside barefoot in this gorgeous flowy yellow dress, I let out a hearty laugh realising all the things I “get away with” as an adult, that I would get my butt whooped for as an adult.
I bought this dress last year in hopes that I’d get to wear it to my daughter’s baby shower, but we all know how 2020 turned out. I immediately fell in love with it’s flowy silhouette, baby soft yellow color and OMG the pleats! The gorgeous V-cut at the back was the sexy addition I needed. I topped the look with my new fave lippie, Carnivorous from MAC. The shoes? Sponsored by Mother Nature.
