Summer Dress

So, you're not allowed to laugh at my face, ok? Sometimes I go out without makeup on, and all of the time I hate it. Makeup is one of those things that I need to feel comfortable around other people. I wish I didn't. I wish I was like those ladies who go sans makeup all the time and totally feel great about it. Maybe it's just because I look like a little kid with a bare face. I look like a dimpled little tot who put on her mother's pearls and ran out the door. By jove, I think I've figured it out!


My sister took these photos of me a few weeks ago when she came to visit and we did a bit of shopping. I think I've worn a pair of shorts once this summer-dresses all the way! They are so much breezier and the lack of layering needed means that I get to just roll out of bed, put on a dress and go! Go where, I'm not sure...since I'm home most of the day...but we'll go with it, ok?


Also, I had an appointment with the cardiologist today after having a second episode of nearly passing out during one of my shows. He put me on salt pills. They're basically just big ol' pills full of sodium chloride and are supposed to help increase my blood volume. I'm like, can't I just eat some doritos or something to get extra salt? Come on! He also told me that the only side effect might be puffiness. So, look forward to that in the future! Haha. Oh well, we'll see how they go anyway and hopefully they'll help me with my light-headedness. I always knew I was an airhead, but now I have a diagnosis ;) 

Anyway, happy Thursday everyone and we'll chat again tomorrow :)
God Bless!

Oh, Katie! You're gorgeous, even without your makeup... but alas, I can't say much, because I, too, am the same way. I can't leave without makeup! I just can't. I at least need a swatch of mascara to feel decent. A little lipstick goes a long way, too, now. But psh, we are our own worst critics! I bet people wouldn't even notice if you didn't tell them! Youuuu are lovely! And dressed up and so cute.

And are those colorful socks I spot? You know I love those! So bright and fun against your fun dress shoes.

Good luck with taking those salt pills! Dang, must be quite a bit of sodium if you can't just eat more doritos hahah. It must need to be pure sodium to be absorbed most efficiently or something. Here's to not much poofiness! hahaha

Wow, you look great without make up, so fresh faced. I look like a drug addict without at least under eye concealer, ha!

I am the same way...I feel so weird without makeup. But you still look great without it.

This dress is very pretty. Love the color of it. And your hair! Super jealous of those curls.

Goodness, Katie! You make me laugh! Especially liked the doritos comment. :)

Keit said...

Mom has the same problem, she has salt cubes nearby and whenever feels her blood pressure is a mess, eats a cube :-D
I don't know why you need makeup to feel comfortable when you have such and extraordinary beautiful face. Full lips, gorgeous blonde hair, cute dimples!

The dress is gorgeous too ofc :-P

It seems like a lot of people want to make us feel like we should like to look natural. There's no shame in liking the way you look made up! But for real, you're beautiful without it too. <3
I hope your salt pills help! Might as well throw some doritos in for good measure...

By the way, I don't like wearing make-up. I just do not feel comfortabe. It's so interesting and funny!

Marlen said...

haha "i always knew i was an airhead"- and yea, you would think that just eating some good ol' potato chips would get you right back on track ;) and i kind of feel the same way about the make up thing if i don't pencil in my eyebrows. my fave just looks so...boring with out them. i think you still look lovely though, especially with a dress like that on! esp. the pockets!

You look so gorgeous! Definitely wouldn't have noticed that you didn't have makeup on if you didn't mention it! Also, that dress is amazing - those pockets - I die! Oh goodness, I hope those pills help even if they make you a little puffy- feel better soon!

xoxo,
