Dress Week: Red Stripes for Me and Denim+Pink Flowers for Vivian.

First of all thank you to all of you who were concerned about me from the last post. I appreciate all the comments and E-Mails I received from you. I had a second visit at the doctor's today and she could see quite a bit of improvement and healing. Those ear-drops have done a miracle thus far. However she said the entire healing process will take about a month and I have to put on little ear-plugs too, when I shower. I have 5 more days of meds and antibiotics and on Tuesday I am due in for a third check-up. I am still in some pain, but nothing compared to what it was 3 days ago.

As I am typing this I realize that it is July 31st today which means August is the only full Summer month left. My third New Dress this week is another piece from H&M (see the other dresses 1 and 2). It just happens to be that way, because I have added a lot of new pieces from H&M this year, actually. I am finally wearing this Versatile+Flirty Red Striped Dress in a Fit+Flare Style, which was actually a Mother's Day Gift (together with a Necklace by H&M), by my husband. I wore the Dress last Saturday both during the daytime and the evening. It ended up being really comfortable. Well the dress is after all Ponte, but a thinner kind of Ponte which makes it perfect year-around and I plan to wear this Dress in the Fall, also. As a matter of fact I am currently wearing the Dress today, as I am typing this post (twice within a week, guys). I styled it differently of course. For my first time I wore my Nude Peep-Toe Wedges that have the Funky Colorful Polka Dots. It was a hot day so a low bun was indeed necessary, also no Necklace. Just some Gold Button Earrings, a stack of Bracelets and I also carried a Gold Handbag. Between the Red Breton Stripes and the Gold I accessorized with, I gave the Outfit a Nautical vibe. Perfect for what "Summer Red" means to me which is Today's theme for Spotlight Weekly. I wish you could see Vivian's Cute Dress better. It is Denim on the top and it mixes Pink Gingham with Pink Floral Print on the bottom. Do you own a Dress with Red Stripes?
