Sporty Chic Maxi Style

Posted on: April 13, 2015

After seeing so many looks with sneakers and maxi dresses on Pinterest, 

I knew it was something I wanted to try and when I found this grey striped skirt, 

on a grocery run to BJ’s , I knew it was the one I would try first.  


I am not standing straight in any of the photos, but can say with confidence, 

that I walked several places that day and it was not dragging the ground. 

It was a fun look to wear as I saw so many mothers wearing the Mom uniform of jeans 

and white sneakers or yoga pants and knew I was just as comfortable. 

That’s why I fully embraced the Sporty Chic trend last year and will continue to do this Season. 


This time I chose my white Grasshopper slip-ons. 

I’ve had mine for a few years, but they are very similar to this version.

I bought mine when I began Weight Watchers as a good walking shoe because I walked to meetings. 

That’s been about four to five years now… 


I really liked popping this with a bright scarf and can see myself recreating this with other colors and switching the sweater for a t-shirt as weather warms up.  

I am loving the Just Fab white bucket bag.  

There is nothing I love more about Spring than ditching my boots and wearing wedges, flats , sneakers and sandals.  

Dear Readers, Beginning Tomorrow I will start posting my Get Your Pretty On Spring Challenge , outfit inspirations.

It’s a wonderful program with 10 days to shop for items suggested (not that I needed much) and last night began the 21 days of suggested ways to put the pieces together.  The best part of the process is the private Facebook group where everyone posts their finds and their outfits daily.  It’s a wonderful group of supportive women and what I love about it is seeing women who were like the old me, who were mother’s who took care of everyone else and took a back seat, stepping up and wanting to embrace fashion and self-care.  

Not only does Alison help so many women she recently did a bootcamp for the man in your life, and let’s face it, that is a much needed area and I will definitely join in on that one in the near future with my husband, though he listens and lets me help him a lot with his style. 


I am grateful that although my 19 year old was hit in a rear end accident, that he and his friends were fine and so was the car. (gotta love it happening when he was stopped at a light, so slow speeds!) 

I am grateful for all the phone chats I’ve been having with my daughter lately!  

I am grateful for Quality time together this weekend with my husband and son, we are just getting use to being a trio, and the two away at college will be home in just a few weeks!!!  We made it year one! 

I am grateful for sunshine, Spring and walks with my youngest.  

I am grateful for a fun Sunday afternoon, bowling with the competition team and I had a new high score!
