Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and that you were able to spend time with your loved ones. We so appreciate all that have served. My grandfather, pictured here right before he headed off to war, recently passed. I’m so thankful that he came home safely and that we were able to have so many years with him. And I’m grateful that my dad, who nearly died overseas in an explosion, made it through as well. We know that Memorial Day can be a tough one for many families that have experienced loss – and you’re in our prayers.

But on to happier things….

Tammy told you last week about our exciting visit to Mall of America. We had so much fun with our kids – and our kids had a blast!

You already got to see what Tammy purchased during our visit in this va-va-va-voom number, and I wanted to share what I picked up (well, it’s one of two items – can’t wait to style my super fun TopShop pants! Wish they had been on sale last week like they are now!).

I love a good maxi skirt because it’s basically like wearing sweat pants. Except prettier.

Paired with our Wild Ruffle crystal necklace (only a limited quantity left in stock!), this is an easy outfit that’ll be on constant rotation in my summer repertoire.

  1. I LOVE that skirt. I actually acquired one or two with a similar line recently and was wondering what shape and proportion of top would best complement it. I found several options too blousy but since my tummy is my problem area, wasn’t sure I wanted to tuck a shirt in for fear I’d just look slightly pregnant. Any ideas?

  2. Oh la la I love the maxi skirt!! I’ve been searching for one for the longest they are the most comfortable thing. Loving the necklace you styled with this lovely outfit!!

    I am having a fashion party link up. I would love if you’d come join!!

    Happy Tuesday Pretty Girl!!

  3. I recently hopped on the maxi skirt bandwagon and I am so excited I did!! I love this look and it is so comfy! Those are great sandals too! I have two maxi skirts and I can see them in a weekly rotation all summer! Susan

  4. What a great look! I love how comfortable but summer stylish it is too.
