Sporty Skirt Outfit

Posted on: June 10, 2014

One of the most fun trends for this season is the Sporty trend.

Another is wearing unexpected combinations of shoes with dresses or skirts, like booties, Birkenstocks or tennis shoes…

This is a very fun trend that I fully embrace…


I could change out these shoes for the other options I mentioned above for a totally different look…If I  had more time today, I would have styled it with three shoe options for fun , but alas: 

Today was about decorating the front porch to surprise our graduate when he came home from his last day of school and his graduation practice… so tennis shoes were perfect!  

These grey Puma’s are a purchase I made to take to Ireland in October and I found them 


Next time I would wear this with completely no show sock or go sockless….


My rhinestone decorated shoulder t-shirt was found at BJ’s and orginally for my 22 year old daugher, but it was too long for her, so I kept it as I like tying tees that are longer…

I also want to point out that sylist extraoidinare Angie from You Look Fab once suggested that I leave off earrings when wearing a hat and glasses and after first cringing at the thought of it, I have since come to agree with her suggestion…Since I wear hats a lot this was an important discovery and change to my style.

Angie wrote a wonderful post on the Sporty Luxe trend  yesterday!

It’s so interesting to see how the sports trend can go casual for a Mom on the Go like myself and go Luxe and be more appropriate for other life experiences…


It was a breezy day!!!!!

I thrifted this skirt last year….


I purchased this necklace chain and pendant piece from Michael’s craft store.

They have a great ever changing selection of the pendant pieces and if you are a bargain shopper, you can always use a 40% off coupon that you can print offline for an even better deal…

The chain is sliver plated and was $11.99 and the pendant was $8.99


My fourteen year old photographer can’t help himself and too photos of our neighbors dog who watches us with interest but never barks at us… you’ve gotta love that in a dog! 


I am grateful that my son finished his last day of high school and now Summer really begins! 

I am so grateful for the wisdom of my 18 year old son and the wonderful choices he makes for himself!

I am grateful for a weekend to celebrate our amazning young man and how we all come together as a family.

I am grateful for the possiblity of a miracle in my friends life and for her strength in facing the impossible, with compassion, strength , intelligence and faith. 

I am grateful that his 3 siblings all pitched in to decorate the front porch for our graduate , how cool that our son who moved out was here to join in!
