Sunday's Best



Easy Like Sunday Morning should be a way of life versus a saying. I love the feeling of peace and simplicity that washes over me each and every Sunday. It is really such a blessing. A couple of weeks ago I ventured back to Beaufort, South Carolina to my family roots and hometown. We don't visit as often as we once use to, in fact I use to spend weeks there every Summer with my grandparents. Those are memories I take with me and cherish always. This particular trip back was to honor my grandmother and all of the lives she touched. My grandmother was opened up her home as a daycare and kept many generations of children. Those children today range in age from their 60s-20s. A mother, grandmother, friend, pillar of the community...she was everything! We spent the weekend with a gala just sharing fond memories of her and each time I think of it, it brings tears of joy to my eyes. She's been gone 15 years and I carry her spirit with me each and everyday. Did I mention she was a sharp dresser? I'm talking the prettiest suits for church and all occasions! I like to think I get my sense of style from her because I for sure inherited the love to shopping! For those of you that don't know, the anklet that I wear and have worn every day since her passing is the last gift I received from her. It is my most valued possession. My grandmother instilled in the that working hard is what matters, to "always do your best", and that life is for the living. She too had such a affinity for travel and I'm glad to be embracing so many pieces of her spirit.


  Wore this dress for the celebration and its perfection is an understatement. I love the simplicity and understated beauty of a white dress. This one is so gorgeous, even my Mommy complimented it! The fabrication is lightweight enough for Summer and I can vouch for that since I wore it in the low country of South Carolina. If you're unfamiliar that means its generally hot all the time. The bell sleeves and open weave detail are the special touches to make this beauty literally unforgettable. I would certainly consider this dress a Sunday best dress and if you're going to the chapel, why not go dressed in white?  Perfect for you soon to be brides out there!






Always,

Ashlei
