If you’ve ever been concerned about wearing white because it wouldn’t suit the occasion, it’s high time you stopped worrying. This summer, the Little White Dress (LWD) has become a light and bright substitute for the classy Little Black Dress. The LWD comes in every shape and size and even wearing it plain can make a statement. However, there are designers who like to play with shiny details and colorful accessories that excite and attract the eye.

You can wear it for both formal and casual events, such as days spent at the beach or evening parties, but make sure you pick the right dress cut and the fabric appropriate for the occasion. The dress pattern usually predisposes what the dress should be worn for.

If you want to refresh your look this summer, here are a few tips on how to look like a goddess while wearing the LWD.

Balanced Outfit for Casual Summer Days

During summer, you are probably in a dire need of a cozy, yet chic everyday outfit. First of all, you should pick a white sundress made from breathable fabrics. You can go for a baby doll shift or any other casual pattern, as long as it makes you feel comfortable.

Pair this dress with brown or nude braided sandals and bold colored accessories (a belt, bracelet and/or big earrings). Finish off with either an oversized handbag or a smaller cross body bag. Both of these are an excellent match as long as the color fits the other accessories.

Achieve that Smart and Tantalizing Look

White is such a divine color. It’s associated with innocence, balance and serenity. If you want to look smart while wearing a white dress, choose a dress cut carefully. A white cut out dress is perfect for more formal events, such as cocktail parties or romantic nights out. It’s stylish and flamboyant, yet balanced enough because it’s white.

You can also go for the tight fitting sheath dress, which is the best option for business meetings and conferences. Add a belt or a gold statement bracelet or a necklace to achieve that sophisticated smart look. In order to show off your body figure, wear a nude body shaper under the dress. Kim Kardashian is responsible for revealing the secret for achieving the perfect body line.

Turn on the Spotlight in the Evening

If you’re spending time with your family on a vacation, you’ll need something both elegant and cozy to wear in the evenings. A long ribbed white dress is ideal for long walks down the beach. Opt for comfortable leather sandals and a colorful necklace and you’ll be ready in an instant.

Off-the-shoulder style is an excellent choice if you want to show off your new tan. On the other hand, even a simple white lace dress is suitable for a night out when paired with an oversized colorful scarf (a classic style Julianne Hough sometimes prefers).

A Perfect Forever-Trendy Combination

Hope you found these pieces of advice useful. Enjoy your summer and try out some of the outfits mentioned. The LWD is this season’s first choice!

How To Deal With Toxic People

self-confidence, how to deal with toxic people, toxic relationships

For the past few months, I’ve felt a little down.  I’ve felt heavy, fatigued and at times ready to just throw my hands up in dismay.  Why, a toxic relationship. I have learned over the course of the years to pay attention to my body and how I’m feeling. Once I get in touch with how I’m feeling, I step away and assess why.    

I ask myself, what’s new in my life?  How do I feel after an encounter with a family member or friend? Is there something going on at work that’s bothering me?  I ask these questions so I can pinpoint what’s happening. At times I feel this way because of a stressful situation at work, but the majority of time it’s a toxic person who’s spawning poison my way.  Toxic people will affect your health and pull you down.

Over the years, I have learned that I stayed in relationships or friendships way too long.  I never liked giving up on people or things without giving 100% of myself, but I’ve learned that the other party must be willing to give 100% of themselves too. If not the relationship is one sided and I must walk away. Walking away has gotten easier for me, no relationship is worth me suffering or not getting my needs meet.

I come from a toxic family.  My mother is as toxic as you can get. So, I am quite familiar with toxic people. Toxic people usually come from a dysfunctional background.  They’re usually harboring deep envy, anger or jealousy.  If they don’t get their emotions in check, they manifest in a harmful way.     

Here are 5 toxic behaviors that I look for:  

Dishonesty – People who hid the truth or don’t tell the truth.  In my opinion, one is as bad as the other. When you’re not honest about who you are, what you’re doing or what’s happening in your life you’re depriving the other people of the ability to make judgments that are beneficial to them.

Ignoring You – When a person doesn’t return your calls, respond to your text messages or make time for you it can affect your self-esteem.  My motto is if I’m not a priority, you wont’ be one either.  Nobody is so busy that they can’t find the time to respond in some way.

Blaming Other People -Toxic people always blame others for their issues and problem.  They create drama, but try to turn things around and they become the victim.

Sabotage They underhandedly and sometimes overtly try to sabotage your happiness and goals. Deep down they really don’t want you to succeed and always find something wrong with what you’re trying to achieve.

Toxic people will pull you down – They can and will eventually affect your health and your emotional well being. Their behavior causes drama and/or conflict and whatever the situation is the outcome will be negative.

I have learned to run in the opposite direction from toxic people or limit their presence in my life. I see absolutely no benefit to having them around. They’re like quick sand, they pull you down little by little and eventually you find yourself up to your neck in crap.  Who needs it. Learn to recognize and deal with toxic people before they grab hold of you and pull you down.
