The Maxi for the BFSC!

Greetings fashion friends,

I hope you all had a great Father's Day!
I surely did,  I got to spend some time with my father in law and as always it was a pleasure. 
I am blessed to have the greatest in-laws.

So yesterday, I wore this maxi dress.  Nothing special but it was easy & comfortable.  This dress is a few years old...approximately 5 years.  I know it is probably about that because I have to pin it up in the back because I've lost a few pounds from when I purchased it.  This is why I have on the denim cropped jacket and because it is a halter.  As I stated earlier, I went over to the in-laws. 
They love me dearly (as I do them) and I want to keep it that  You know what I mean.
I don't want Momma Mac giving me the side eye because she thinks I am half dressed.
Dress & Jacket: Ashley Stewart  Purse: Thrifted

 If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter then you know my boys are gone for 5 weeks spending time with their dad and nana.  The issue with that is my oldest is my photographer.  This means I have to burn up several of my brownie points I have saved in my "Baby Please" account to keep the posts coming. These 5 weeks will be long ones as a married blogger.

Shout out to Mr. Mac for holding it down with the camera yesterday.


I have three small confessions to make.

Confession #1  I also wore this dress today because I had a slight headache and I wasn't up to putting too much thought into what to wear.

Confession #2 I also figured  it would satisfy the maxi on my Big Fat Summer Challenge list.  Ever since deciding to participate, I have been thinking about this list when choosing an outfit.

Maxi dress...DONE!
So far this has been easy...but umm short shorts and bikini?!? Woosahhh!

Beacause I am vertically challenged, this dress and all maxis sweep the ground/floor when I wear them.  I don't mind it, especially today because my feet stay covered.  Which is confession #3.  I am in DESPERATE need of a pedicure! It is a sin and a shame!  These corns is fixin' to pop! 

lol...y'all remember this episode of Martin?
Somebody gotta go to work on my feet!!!

Seriously, I will handle it very soon (before I lose more valued brownie
but until then...maxis and closed toe shoes are on tap.

You know what I say...judge me if you like. :)

Thanks for stopping by.
Stay fly and stay tuned!
