Our springtime in Louisiana actually still has some cooler temps. Once March arrives, I am all about immediately rocking jean shorts and sandals. But, somedays, I need a little more clothing. LOL. I love that some spring dresses are easily layered with a jean jacket or a cardi.. This embroidered sheer dress is especially perfect for those cooler days. I layered it with a simple black tank dress. The details and pops of spring make it such a unique dress.

With the weather being perfect, why not rock a sheer embroidered dress!! I've share some of favorites for spring. Read more. With the weather being perfect, why not rock a sheer embroidered dress!! I've share some of favorites for spring. Read more.

The word “layers” always reminds me of the saying “peel back the layers”. Y’all, I am all about peeling back the layers. For too long, I held everything {I mean everything} inside. Once I started to open up and just be real, I became addicted to being vulnerable. Why hold back how you are feeling or what you are passionate about in life???

I recently told my husband that I can’t live life without an emotional connection. My love language is quality time so the emotional connection is even more important. He said  “teach me how”. I responded with “I don’t know how”. Well, I’ve been thinking about this for a few weeks now. I might have a little bit of advice.

Isn’t it funny how you can be surrounded by numerous people yet still feel disconnected?!!! It’s peeling back those layers that brings connection and a sense of bonding. I love to move pass surface conversation. That heart to heart connection is so amazing. It’s pure enjoyment when you are able to know and to understand another person.

“Proximity and activity don’t always equal connectivity.”

So, how do we graduate from that teenager hold it all inside to that vulnerable heart to heart. Well, this may seem too basic of an answer, BUT this was what helped me:

BE REAL and be genuinely interested in others.

You share and you listen. Its about passions, dreams, struggles, interest, silly moments and life stories. Enjoying each other. This is what emotional connection looks like to me. We all need to work on being better at peeling back the layers and genuinely caring about others. Studies have proven that people care 40% less about others and their well being than they did in the 1980’s. That is SO sad to me. It also states that social media is primarily the cause. We have become a self focussed generation.

So, let’s get better at this. We all desire those beautiful relationships. Emotional connection is only one key factor that can’t be left out. Any who, cheers to peeling back the layers!!

    I love that dress. I think I like it the most because it’s not like every other spring dress, it’s dark. I like wearing dark colors!

    Peeling back the layers! That’s perfect…I saw an onion, while reading your post, lots of layers. Your open heart and vulnerability draws people to you. It’s so refreshing and disarming. Back to your cuteness…obsessed with that black floral, so stunning and right in the pocket to dress up or down. Loving those wedges with it! You are one fabulous lady with beautiful style! Love you, friend!
