May is just around the corner, the temperatures are warming up all over the country, and it is time for picnics, barbecue parties and family get togethers in the back yard. What are you going to wear? As a young mom of 4, I want to look stylish and chic, but I also want to wear modest clothing that can keep me covered, when I am lifting up kids, playing ball or other games.
This year I am ready for fashion, because baby number four has arrived, and I am working hard at the gym to be able to wear my favorite dresses. A few weeks ago, my husband and I went on our first date in quite a while, as my brother and his family were in town, and they offered to watch all of our kids for a few hours. It was the first opportunity, since the pregnancy that I had had to wear a pretty dress, and I was thrilled to be able to fit into a dazzling black Shabby Apple creation.
So for this year’s spring and summer events, I am definitely wearing Shabby Apple, and my newest addition to the closet is this Shabby Apple Lighthouse dress. It is a breezy, lightweight dress with a bit of a casual flair that is perfect for South Florida.
The material is quite light, and the Lighthouse dress can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. The dress has a double layer of cotton voille, and it is a buttery yellow that seems to match some of the sunrise undertones on an cloudy morning here in South Floida. It can be worn with the white bow belt or without, and it is a perfect dress to wear on a hot day. I especially love that this dress almost calls for a hat, because I almost always wear a hat on a sunny South Florida spring or summer day.
Shabby Apple has a phenomenal collection of stunning modest dresses for all of occasions. Take a look at some of my favorite spring and summer dresses from Shabby Apple.
