Sundress | Little White Dress and Perforated Sneakers

I love a good sundress, even better if it's a little white dress. I wore this dress here on the blog not too long ago (here) but I recently went sans denim jacket to combat the humidity. I am really loving this ruffled faux-wrap style! Paired with these perforated blush sneakers and I think this outfit is very on-trend for this summer!

In other news, you may have heard about Kate Spade's unfortunate death. I'm not going to lie, that one hit me hard. I have several Kate Spade bags and you won't catch me without my Kate Spade Lady Marmalade necklace that Brian gave me for Christmas one year. The Kate Spade Beau bag was the very first designer bag I purchased with my own money so the Kate Spade brand has a very special place in my closet. Her passing made me so sad and I want to revisit my post on mental health. A lot of people right now are encouraging others to get help if you're struggling with something and I think it's a great thing. It's also something I encouraged in that post. However, while I touched on this topic, I want to dig a bit deeper on that post and say that the burden of seeking help shouldn't be placed solely on those contemplating taking their own lives. Depression, anxiety, loneliness, fear, etc. can weigh heavily on someone, so heavily that they can't push it off to seek help. These dark places can trap people so much. I know because I've been there before. It is beyond scary to know you are thinking of ending your life, and that suicide seems like the best solution. To say to someone contemplating suicide that there are other options can come off as kind of naïve and privileged at times. Yes there are hotlines, but those can only do so much; not everyone can afford a therapist; mental illness and depression are treated as social pariahs by so many, so it's hard to seek out help if you're worried about being told to "get over it." We as a friend, as a family member, as an ally, as a neighbor, even as a stranger, should all check in on everyone we love and worry about. End the stigma of depression, of anxiety, of suicide. Not everyone is able to escape on their own, otherwise suicide would not be a reality.
