Hope you all Passionistas are well rested after fourth of July celebrations. This week is going by so fast already, for my own good. I'm so ready for another weekend.

If you have been on this fantastic journey with me, you may know I am a huge fan and supporter of Suki + Solaine. A clothing company based out in Chicago, where all of their pieces are ethically made right here in the city that I love. I am thrilled to share this stunning, one of a kind Vogue Lydia Dress. I believe it is been named just right, it may as well be featured in Vogue magazine. The definition of the word vogue is 'the prevailing fashion or style at a particular time' but this dress is more than just that, it is a timeless piece, something I will keep in my closet for years. When looking at it closely, you can see the details of the embroidered fabric. The high -  low combination and see - through at the bottom makes it even more visually interesting. It also has pockets! And that's a complete win in my book, because hello, I like to keep my phone at reach with easy access!

Vogue Lydia Dress is a little long and while being 5'7" I need to wear it with high heels. By high heels, I meant I had to find the tallest heels I own, so the dress would stay off the ground and not get dirty. I am wearing my Marc Fisher sandals, that are not only 5" tall but for that height they are surprisingly comfy, due to nice cushioning of the sole. I don't normally wear super high heels, my marathon legs are already in so much pain, no need to add to it.  These sandals are not only stylish, comfy but are also on sale for under $100 and come in other color combos. I wish I had them in black too! 

This Suki + Solaine Lydia Vogue dress is perfect for a black tie event, or any other evening event. I have even worn it to my church service with a jean jacket option, for a little bit more dressed down version. Check out the latest and greatest from Suki + Solaine on their website, you will fall in love in every piece they carry. I know I have :)

Marathon training update: 

I'm in week 4 out of 18 total. I haven't missed a single run so far, even if I would, at this stage of my running experience, it would be completely fine (long distance runner for 3 years now). I just know I have certain goals to meet and am putting 100% into this marathon training. I have also been running both on saturdays and sundays, where before, it only included one day of long runs on the weekends. The pain is already creeping in and epsom baths already been taken, with many more planned in the future.  

I am capturing all of marathon training on my Inta-Stories, so feel free to always go there for daily updates. I apologize in advance for looking like a complete mess while doing so, but running is not a pretty sport. I have been told I usually look pissed off while running. I believe them, I've seen some unflattering photos of myself. LOL

Here's the link to my Girls On The Run Foundation, if you would like to donate I would forever be grateful. Most girls come from low income families, they get to train with a coach, they run in a non - competitive 5k at the end of the program, they learn the importance on how to live and maintain a healthy life style. Most importantly, the program is anti-bullying and it instills confidence and positivity into these girls lives. Something I wish I had while growing up... Thank you and God Bless for all your support. 

Love,

Marlena, Style Your Passion
