Pour Some Neutral on Me--BDIB and Summer Trends

Folks, nothing can get my mood down today! Nothing I tell you! It is a gorgeous day here in the Square State, which always helps my mood. But also, there are a lot of great things going on today.

After work, I get to go and pick up my kiddos--score! Pat finally comes back from his business trip--so excited! My Gramma's memorial service is tomorrow (she passed away in April, but we do memorial services in my family instead of funerals), so even though it will be sad, we get to celebrate her life with a bunch of my family that is coming in from all over the place. I am so excited to see everyone!  Oh, and did I mention it's Friday?!?!?!  *enter sigh of relief*

Another reason to be excited today? I doing yet another twofer challenge for y'all.  Today is Neutral Day for the Summer Trends challenge.  Sadly, this is the last day I can participate in the challenge (tomorrow is Bright Bottoms Day and I'm not thinking I want to sport Bright Bottoms to my Gramma's memorial), but it has been such a fun journey!  Be sure to check out what everyone else did for the challenge here.

Secondly,  it is one of my favorite times of the month:  The Bloggers Do It Better challenge.  This month, they are featuring maxi skirts.  You have to wear a skirt, not a dress (no cheating!).  When I knew I was going to mesh the two challenges, I knew this skirt was the only plausible solution.  Make sure to check out these lovelies in there maxi skirts here.

 Have a great weekend everyone!

  8. Tanvi, Tanvi, Tanvi. You always know how to make a girl feel special ;-) I felt hotttt in this. Mostly because I am crazy for wearing boots and a hat on the first over 90 degree day we've had in ages. Yikes.

  39. Oh don't you worry your pretty little head--I was sweating like a sinner in church in this. Fortunately, I took this pre-work, so I was able to make a mirage of a sweat free attire. If you ever make it up to the square state, let me know! Thanks so much for your comment!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks WendyB! I was actually told that earlier which is nice because I am a shortie and a mommy, so any compliment like that is nice to hear. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you Monica and/or Whitney! I really appreciate that!
