Yet, Another Boho Outfit…

Posted on: May 6, 2014

Rain and the chaos of my oldest moving out on Monday, resulted in no photos…

I wish I had gotten them as I went out to lunch with a friend

and had a casual look that wasn’t at all Boho…

I couldn’t wait to style my new item, this F21 dress, 

This works more as a tunic for someone not wearing mini’s….

I had measured and thought this would work for my petite height as a dress…

However, I like to blouse it a bit making it shorter , but not too short for a tunic…

I ran errands today and wanted total comfort and this outfit did just that.  

These crotchet  shoes by Espirit  I found at 6pm.com are a fabulous additon for my 

Mom on the Go needs…

A closer look at the print, which to me seems vintage, which is what drew me to it. 

I am wearing a gold locket that use to be my mother’s and actually was my grandmother’s..

It has my grandmother’s initials, AMC for Alice May Campbell

and the photos inside are my grandmother’s mother and my grandmother’s brother as a young child.  I cherish this piece!

I loved the bright red-orange Dooney & Bourke purse as a good pop of color.  

Dear Readers, I have been really missing my mother as something really hit me hard when the five year anniversary of her passing came around in March and I haven’t been able to shake it.  I love wearing her jewelry pieces and remembering her wearing them.  Mother’s Day is coming soon and quite frankly I wasn’t looking forward to , yet another reminder of my loss.  I’ve made plans with our friends to take a road trip to Richmond to a restaurant my husband discovered while there training new hires.  I asked my children if they minded that we had the morning together until about noon before we left on our day trip and they all agreed I should go.. I love them for understanding me so well..  This is a first, not spending Mother’s Day with my children… Yet another change, among a year of so many…

Dear Readers, If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, I hope you truly celebrate her!  If like me, without a mother, I hope you find a way to spend the day in celebration and without sorrow!

I would love to hear what your plans are for this Sunday, so chime in dear readers and let me share in your joyful plans!

Gratitude

 I am grateful that my husband felt really good about the meeting he held for his team today!

I am grateful that I went to lunch with a dear friend yesterday, instead of sitting home thinking about my oldest moving out, which had brought me to tears. 

I am profoundly grateful that my son’s moving out was a very healthy thing and not like so many of my own generations experience of strife with parents,   making them leave. 

I am grateful for this wonderful stage of life where I am surrounded by only loving people who deserve to be part of my world… ( we all have to go through removing toxic relationships and it isn’t until our forties that most of us get there)

Sending you a hug for your loss. It’s true; we should cherish our loved ones every day.
I’m loving your boho look, but you’re right about that “dress” not being long enough to wear as one LOL
