Maxi Style…

Posted on: July 25, 2014

What’s the easiest way to get gussied up after housecleaning? 

Throw on a maxi,a vest and a fedora…


I worked late in the afternoon doing two days of our schedule of decluttering because we were to tired after bowling to get started on what should have been our first day…I then, had to run to BJ’s for grocery shopping… I loved the excuse to get cleaned up and dressed up…It trully is my way of balancing my life as a stay at home mother and of still caring for myself and being me..


I thrifted this fabulous polk-a dot maxi and did you notice my hand,,, 

Yep, this little number has pockets!!!!!   

I’ve never seen a maxi with pockets, have you????


This maxi is the longest one I own, but I still was able to walk

and get my groceries without it being in the way or having to lift it at all..

I am loving my jean vest and fedora this sseason and can’t seem to get enough of them…

Dear Readers,  my reason for decluttering right now is to take advantage of doinng so when I can get the help of my kids before they head off.. That’s not the only reason… My oldest will be coming back home for the 3weeks we are in Ireland to stay with my youngest and our dog, rabbit and turtles… He will be bringing his bird and tucking everything away will allow the bird to have a room to fly free and land on top of furniure pieces without anythng for him to get into… 


I am grateful for getting back on track with our decluttering schedule, even though it was a tiring day..

I am grateful for the help of my niece, daughter, and two sons… Having several people running to put things away is incredible..

I am grateful that I planned an easy, no-cooking necessary dinner of  salad with precooked chicken . 

I am grateful to my niece for taking my blog photos today and yesterday.

I am grateful that I gave my niece my chambray shirt I’ll get another one soon) as she’s been wanting one and will get a lot of use out of it..

i am grateful for the fun my niece had today, starting a styling notebook, gluing magazine photos and others I printed from the computer..

I am grateful for the time I have with my neice over the summer every other week!
