WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here, we should wear fashionable clothes that make us feel awesome. Just the act of being alive and well in this crazy world of ours is a reason to celebrate! While I’m not endorsing celebrating the act of seeing a smiling face by spending $200 you can’t afford on a pair of shoes, do treat yourself now and then with something that’ll not only brighten your day, but also your wardrobe.

This Fashionista, who’s absolutely glowing in a haze of vibrant patterns, definitely knows how to celebrate during the summer season! Her patterned maxi dress is lively and fun and embraces the energy of summer. What better way to walk around in a dress that demands admiration than with her gold gladiator sandals that give each step she makes a touch of sparkle? This Fashionista also has chosen to wear a tote bag that promotes the Palestine Festival of Literature, an organization that throws an annual festival of literary events across historic Palestine! Not only did that fashion choice add a unique touch to her outfit, but it’s also for a good cause. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the beautiful curls that lay upon this Fashionista’s head. Perfectly bouncy and fun, this Fashionista embraced her curls that makes any curly headed person want to know her styling secrets, including me!

In case you need a couple reasons to celebrate, let’s talk about a few things that may warrant a celebration. Have you been taking care of yourself mentally and physically as best as you could in the last month? Did your favorite band randomly drop a single in the middle of the night? (One Direction, I’m talking about “Drag Me Down” here). Have you finally read that book you’ve been meaning to read all year? You see, there are so many things to celebrate in our lives and I urge you to pause and attempt to maintain such a positive attitude as our Fashionista here!

One Simple Change: This Fashionista’s look would also be perfect for a brunch with friends if you make one simple swap. Instead of wearing eye-catching gold gladiator shoes, replace them with brown sandals and keep the attention on your smiling face with some beautiful earrings!
