Did Someone Say Maxi?

Or Maxine?

Why not both?? :) (Who doesn't love Maxine!)

So, not that I can undo it now..but I'm really wishing I had done things differently on that whole "Park Date" outfit. At the time I thought it was pretty good. But after looking at the pictures? It just looked sad...I was definitely missing some "punch" in that outfit.

But that is what this whole thing is about, trying different things. Some things work, and others (way too obviously) not so much ;)

But this skirt, this skirt I love!
Skirts make me feel so girly (and yes, I'll admit, "twirly" ;)

In an effort to change things up a bit, and attempt to not repeat the errors of the Fashion Past, I tried a little side-knot with the T-shirt. I tried really really really really hard to NOT repeat my Big-Oversized-Knot-with-a-Tail of my Jr. High Years. I think I succeeded... yes? Perhaps?

I would try to distract you from the Dead Grass that is our yard..
but I'm looking straight at it, so it's kinda hard to miss. 

In case you miss the point, here are my shoes ;)

Wistful? Or keeping a watchful eye on the Great Migration of Birds
overhead and their possible "bombs"?
So I realize that I have NO pictures of me looking at the camera. There is a reason for that. The Hubster got ONE picture of me looking at the camera. There is a reason it isn't getting posted. ha! (And it has to do with the Goon Face I was sporting!)

But look! Look! Look! My first attempted French-Side-Braid Pony (is there such a thing? Well, there is now ha!)

This is one of the reasons I am wanting to grow my hair out longer...more options to (try?) to do more things with it :)

For Curious Minds Who May Want to Know:
Shirt: Pea in the Pod (Yes, I still wear them...and I wish I had more of them..SO comfy!)
Skirt: BB Dakota (Hautelook score!!)
Shoes: DSW
Bracelets: Gift from my Mom (from Africa!)
Earrings: Gift

There, I hope this outfit makes up for the last one! No drab or sad this time, eh?

And until next time, Lots of Love!

Linking up with Casual Friday LinkupHigh Five for Friday, and Falling for Friday

    1. Thank you, I had fun with the braid, though I definitely need more practice with it :)

  2. Very pretty skirt! Love the colors!

    1. Thank you so much! The colors (and interesting pattern) made me smile when I first saw it :)
