White Floral Maxi, Navy Nautical Hat and Red Lips.

With everything I got going on this month, especially the second half of this month with vacation, moving and then traveling overseas, I (as usual) haven't been able to schedule my posts ahead so I will post whenever and if I can. Like this outfit, I totally meant to post it yesterday and link it with Michelle and Anna Luiza for their monthly weekly link-up which this Monday was all about The Maxi. Posting it on a Tuesday, instead. And, starting this Friday, next weekend and the first two weeks of August - while I take me time with all of my packing, traveling and settling - I have planned to have lots of Guest Bloggers here for you guys to read, admire and follow.
So I love a Maxi Dress for Summer especially if it is in a Floral Print. I love a Good Black Maxi also. This one is from a few Summers ago from Express when they collaborated with this woman designer (I cannot recall her name) I ended up picking several dresses and tops then from that collaboration. She had gorgeous styles and prints and a few Boho pieces, too. The flounce, tiers and overall girly style of this Maxi Dress, plus the fact that it is 100% Silk Chiffon makes it perfect for Summer, don't you think? I am so glad I paired it with my Green Sandals bringing out the bright green leaves of the Dress. And of course the pretty red flowers called for Bright Red Lips. I added one of my Real Gold Heart Pendants (this one has a Pink Topaz), a couple of Colorful Bracelets and my Aqua 360 Stud Earrings which matched that Mint Cocktail Ring beautifully. And due to the 100 degree hot sun I added my New Navy Floppy Hat. I love this one. It has a White+Navy Ribbon around the rim which is clasped with a Gold Anchor. It is such a pretty piece I scored BRAND-NEW for about 6 bucks. I have seen identical Hats for anywhere between $25-60. Do you like wearing Maxi Dresses with Floppy Hats like me? Linked below I found similar pretty options to my Red Foral Maxi Dress and Navy Floppy Hat.
Bright, Kelly Green Strappy Sandals: Simple Shoes (New) (similar, trendy option), (similar, love this), (dressy stiletto option by Guess, love this).

Also linking with the ladies of "Create 28 Lovely Summer Looks" for My Favorite Jewelry. As much as I love 
a Good Statement Necklace. For Summer I prefer and wear my Dainty Heart Pendants like I am doing today. 
I own 4 Real Gold Heart Pendants and alternate among them.
For Summer I also love wearing my 360 Bobble Stud Earrings, Bright Bracelets and a 
Brightly-Colored Fun, Everyday Cocktail Ring, like I am doing today.


  1. What a beautiful, feminine dress! And girl, you know how to rock a floppy hat! While I'm a lover of maxi dresses (as you know), I don't own a single floppy hat. I feel like they look silly on me. Maybe I just need to be a little bit adventurous!

    When the subject of Christianity has been debated the majority has never been right.

    The majority of first century Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah.---The majority has never been right.

    John 4:25, 26 The woman said to Him. "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
    26 Jesus said to her. "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

    The majority of world rejects Jesus as the only Savior.---The majority has never been right.

    Acts 4:10-12 ...the name of Jesus Christ.....12 "Nor is there no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    The majority of those who claim to be Christians believe the false doctrine of original sin. They believe that because Adam and Eve sinned that all men are guilty of spiritual sin at birth. They believe in inherited sin.---The majority has never been right.

    Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. (NKJV)

    No man has inherited the guilt of Adam. Men will face spiritual death because of their own sins.

    Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)

    Death spread to all men because all men have sinned.

    The majority of those who claim Jesus as Savior believe that modes of water baptism are sprinkling and pouring---The majority has never been right.

    Mark 16:16 Whoever trusts and is immersed will be saved; whoever does not trust will be condemned. (Complete Jewish Bible)
    Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (The Better Version of the New Testament by Chester Estes)

    There are no translations that translate Mark 16:16 as such, "He who believes and has been sprinkled or poured shall be saved."---The majority has never been right.

    The majority of Baptist believe that water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins and that once you are saved you can never be lost---The majority of Baptists have never been right.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)
    Galatians 5:1-4.....you have fallen from grace.(NKJV)

    The majority of those who claim to be Christian believe that their church denomination is the final authority when it comes to faith and practice of the Christian faith---The majority has never been right.

    The word of God found in the Bible and the Bible alone is not only the final authority, but the only authority for mankind.


    Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.(NKJV)

    If the majority were always right there would be many who find life eternal, however---The majority has never been right.

    Luke 13:23-24 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?" And He said to them, 24 "Strive to enter the narrow gate for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.(NKJV)
