What to Wear: Summer Party Style

May 30, 2013

Summer parties are joyous opportunities to have fun, eat potato salad, hot dogs and ice cream and show off your warm weather style of course! It's the season everyone waits for all year so you want to get out there and soak up the sun rather than stand in front of your closet trying to decide what to wear. Get ready to hog the spotlight with some style-setting outfits and dresses that are sure to be a hit whether you're going to a barbecue, pool party, backyard party or a summer festival! 

Summer Style Tips

When you're hanging out at a summer BBQ or house party, a pair of vintage-look shorts paired with a printed t-shirt paired with pink lipstick will give you an effortless yet retro cool look! Coordinate with a classic pair of sweet sandalsand oversized cat-eye sunglasses and you've got an effortlessly cool party look. 

If you're going to a wedding, be dressed to impress with a floaty dress in a bright shade like canary yellow or cobalt blue. Add some gold hoop earrings and a clutch bag for a touch of elegance and you're ready to dance. 

For your next pool party, wear a cute playsuit over a bikini or swimsuit and pair with flip flops and a big floppy sunhat and instantly amp up the glam factor! A pair of statement sunglasses show that you know your style stuff.

They're great friends and I'm just... stupid. I'm sorry dear but things do get better and its not your fault. Everyone messes up, its just a part a life. If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.

Don't make your mom get irritated or she might start abusing you too. Talk to a counselor at school or something and figure out a way, like living with a relative or something. A counsellor is a good idea but talking to your mom is more important. She's your guardian. Don't worry about irritating her, tell her how you feel. Communication is important and the fear of getting abused should never ever get in between your relationship unless it's a previous factor in that relationship (not one with someone else). You have a right to tell her how you feel and have a discussion with her about it. I'm sure you can come to some sort of understanding. And if not, then maybe talk to someone outside the family. But don't go behind her back and talk to someone else about it unless it's 100% necessary for your family. She needs to know how you feel.

I know it must feel awful. But you have to remember that your parents still love you, they just don't have time to show it sometimes. Autism requires a lot of work, attention, and support. Unfortunately that's a sacrifice you make for family. Sometimes you have to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. They're doing this for the family.
