Feeling causal: Sara Duke’s Tanner Dress

I’ve been away from the blog with good reason. I needed some time to focus on some personal things, understand some bad news and take time for myself. I’m also getting ready for a big move out of my parent’s house and into my own place next month.

Therefore, I took an unexpected but brief vacation from my blog and all my social media channels. If you’re a digital content creator for any type of digital space whether for social media or a blog you may know the struggle to keep the balance between that and life.

One of the ways I have been coping with stress is becoming more active simply by walking more instead of driving everywhere. As a result I have been able to discover some great places, parks, restaurants, and people in my area that I never noticed before . 

I decided to pair the Tanner Dress by Canadian designer Sara Duke as a base to the outfit. The dress is from Sara’s Spring collection and its simplicity makes it ideal to style with an endless amount of items. The dress is also comfortable making it my new go to item when I want to be causal, comfortable, but stylish. I paired the dress with a denim button up and some gold shoes to give the outfit a pop of interest. You would not believe how many conversations were started while shooting this look based on my outfit  and the gold shoes.

    Good luck with your move. I try to relieve stress by writing down my thoughts, allowing myself to feel the emotion no matter how unpleasant and by listening to music. By the way your gold shoes was a nice touch. LaToya http://www.toyastales.blogspot.com

    Sorry to here you're stressed out. It's always an awful thing to happen and not always easy to relief stress. What do I do, well it depends on what was causing the stress, tho. But mostly I try to keep me busy as much as possible, and if it means I clean my house trice over the weekend, lol, just keeping myself busy and not thinking keeps me going, you know. Anyway you look cute in that outfit, honey. Good luck with moving houses and believe me that's again very stressful, so I feel you here, girl. Who is that cute little dog? Is it yours?xoxLenyaFashionDreams&Lifestyle
