Maxi pleated skirt

Posted on: April 20, 2014

I love the mine accordian pleating in skirts and when I saw this one on Ebay, I just had to purchase it..

After all this color really works so well with my hair…

Linking Up Today with Visible Monday!


This outfit emerged out of necessity to keep warm on this windy 65 degree day, while also camoflauging the incredible bloating of that darn cycle , that at 48 years, I am ready for it to cease permanently!  

Let’s face it , I’ve already lost my beautful hour glass firgure and have that middle age spread going on, add in the bloating and enough is enough!!!!


My apologies my dear readers, sometimes it just feels good to vent!  

This is my newest purse addition and was suppose to be a long strap as a crossbody, but I just pulled it to a shorter double strap.  


Tucking in the sweater and adding the moto vest really made all the difference !

I am really getting a lot of use from this necklace I bought from Forever 21!  Who knew this silver loving gal could change into loving gold????? 

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend!  


I am grateful that my youngest thoroughly enjoyed his birthday! 

I am grateful that after waiting what seemed like forever to my dear son, that he nows has his first cell phone and has a model newer than his siblings who will all have to wait for upgrades…. A fun unique postion for the youngest child!!!

I am grateful that the new Iphone 5S has such wonderful features that have filled us with great amusements as we await answers from  the personal assistant, SIRI   to the silly questions the boys are posing…

I am grateful that my husband is back in a management position and instead of just doing sales, is planning out his week and how to improve things!  He really rises to challenges and loves them!

I am grateful for watching Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays on HBO as he told his life story, losing his father when he was 15 and mother ant 53… I lost my father at 13 and mother at 43….

I am grateful for holidays and the precious memories that always get brought to the surface!

Vent away, it feels good to let it out! And you look lovely in this accordion-pleat skirt, it does match your hair just perfectly. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

When you get your first bona fide hot flash you’ll pray for the bloat; trust me!
I don’t see any signs of swelling – so you’ve hidden it well. Forever 21 has great accessories at bargain prices that flatter all age groups 😉


Ah, I wish I hadn’t expereinced hot flasshes yet. but had them for a few months and then they disappeared…

GORGEOUS outfit today! It really does match your hair too. 😉 Hope you’ve had a blessed Easter.

Omg, so much love from me today…I love the skirt (it does look fantastic with your hair color), love it paired with the white, love the shoes and necklace too! You look amazing. This is one of my favorites!

Thank you so much, you are so kind!

Oh, yes…and cute purse too. 🙂

Tracy, you really do look gorgeous! Have I ever seen you in a maxi before? And love the shoes, too.

I disagree about your figure… you still have your hourglass. The outfit serves your pretty curves well. So cute, your sandals, too! That said, it is cool when it’s over and done with! Mine was early with an hysterectomy, but in my 40’s and no one was as happy as I was about it. Never looked back!

Thank you, you are so nice and encouraging!
