Maxi Skirt & Leopard Flats

Posted on: April 6, 2015

As my Regular Readers Know, I have a Strong Boho Side

And Spring Summer it Really Comes Out to Play. 

This has to be my favorite Maxi Skirt! 

Linking up with Visible Monday

I bought this a few years ago from Chadwick’s and my love for it is not slowing down. 

Other fashionistas have pointed out that colors like this work well with my hair.  

Copper Maxi

I double layered some copper flower necklaces, as I love a statement necklace, 

but really wanted to create a more vertical line by adding the longer one. 

My jean jacket is thrifted, which is the only way I’ve acquired jean jackets…

I wore this outfit Saturday for a family dinner….

I laugh at that as my family shrinking from 6 down to three this year has been a tough adjustment. 

I do love that my youngest is getting great quality time with us.

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend!  

It was the first holiday we had with just the three of us , since our college kids have their Spring breaks, so early. It was hard and we all felt the missing pieces.  We actually kept our normal Sunday recent tradition of going bowling , as my youngest is preparing for his very first competition in just a few weeks.  It was fun to see his progress and that the private bowling lessons have really helped.  She taught him how to throw a curve and it really is helping his game.  It’s fun to see him find something he loves and be able to participate with him, not just sit on the sidelines as we’ve had to do with other sports and activities our children participated in. 

Gratitude

I am so grateful that my daughter away at Boston College called me last night, to share all the fun she had at the much anticipated Anime Boston convention.

 I am so grateful that my introvert had such fun and they opening of all the costumes allowed her to forget the awkwardness she sometimes encounters with small talk. 

I am grateful that we survived our first holiday as a shrunken family unit. 

I am grateful for the funny moment this morning when I couldn’t stop laughing.  It started because my husband set an alarm to remind himself to tell work he needed off Tuesday afternoon to take our son to his private bowling lesson.  The laughter was prompted because  I pictured him doing that in his previous job.  Taking that time off would have been a problem, but this job respects his independent contractor status and need for family time.  

I am grateful for a complete change of perspective in my husband that has greatly improved our marriage. That’s all it really takes sometimes..

Hope to see you at Turning Heads TUesday link up!

Tracey, your Boho skirt suits the Spring weather beautifully! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

I am drooling over your whole outfit!! Those are my colors, too. But you also made me miss my son in advance (college is several years away). Glad you had a special holiday weekend in spite of the missing pieces!

I have to say that I feel so blessed to have kids in college in this day and age versus previous generations. My children do a great job of calling and texting me regularly. I had to laugh the day my son (freshman) called me on a Sunday and I heard all this noise in the background.. It was because a group of guys studying in the library all decided to call their mother’s at the same time… lol

Awww! That is so sweet. 🙂

Wow – you look so fantastic! Even the strap on your purse picks up the same colors in your hair, skirt and shoes! This is a truly great outfit.

I have to compliment you on how well you’re handling having your older kids being away – I only hope that I can be the same when my two older teens move out. Maybe some time you can let your readers in on some tips to dealing with your changing Mom role as the kids move away.

You are so observant to notice the purse handle. Thank you so much for your kind words. I prepared myself as a parent many years ago for this wanting to give my children wings, we’ve been close and I just let them come to me. So many of their friends parents bugged them. I trust them where some others didn’t. I think trusting them and respecting their adulthood is key. Going from parenting to guide and confidant has been a pleasure.

Love your outfit Tracey! You look great in the copper tones! Don’t you just love the outfits that continue to make you happy?? I love you leopard flats…do you mind telling me the brand? I have hunting for comfy leopard flats. You are so smart to thrift shop, especially for denim jackets! 🙂

My leopard flats are by Just Fab. Thanks for commenting.

My flats are from Just Fab. I love thrifting for certain classics and skirts and dresses.

This is a great look, Tracey. I can see why this is your favorite maxi. Love the layered necklaces too. I have organized sooooo many outfits for spring with my 2 jean jackets. One with a new maxi skirt too. I’ll be breaking out my sandals next week if the weather will be in the 60’s. My toes will be painted this weekend and I’ll be ready. 🙂

So funny Lisa, I just painted my toes two days ago! I went for Navy as it worked so well last year. I prefer it more in the 70’s for open toes. We made it there yesterday. I just bought a new maxi skirt for a style challenge I am doing.

Love the boho vibe … want that skirt and the necklace too!
