No More Showers!

Skirt? Target
Tee? Mossimo, Target
Shoes? Maxstudio, Winners
Bracelets? crazy lady at The Ex

It was Linda's bachlorette/lingerie shower last weekend and we snuck away from our hotel room for a second to do some outfit pics. I had a bad case of the giggles (can you tell?) so Linda reminded me of something that made me sad and than I got serious and began to WORK. IT. OUT. What a good friend!

I got this skirt from Target early in the spring and it's hung in my closet with tags on ever since. Now it's September and seeing summer clothes with tags on, makes me feel guilty for being such a hoarder. So, I'm trying to squish all these summer outfits into these last glorious days. I dig this skirt, I hope the warmth sticks around long enough for one more wear. The drape in the back gives the illusion of me having a lot of junk in the trunk. That's ok, I like big butts and I cannot lie.

I have to admit I'm glad this party is done. Everything worked out really well and it was tons of fun but as I've said before, I'm so over throwing showers. As a career bridesmaid (Linda's eloquent wording) and with soooo many of my friends bringing forth the future generation, I have done my share. I'm off on sabbatical.
At least I know that everyone really appreciates the work I do. When Linda found out that the party colours were pink and red, she thought it was a joke and told me she hates pink and red. Poor baby. She had a pink and red shower and she liked it.

P.S. Even with Matt voting for himself and getting family members to vote for him, I still won the photo contest from Paris. Funny thing is, I kinda like his more now... (My pic was #1).

No more showers? Are you going to take baths now? Or just go on smelling?

hahaha...

You don't seem to be working it so much in these pics...should I remind you of something sad again??LOL

Thanks again it was a lovely party and the pink and red looked great!

Glad you won the contest even though I voted for his pic...oops.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pictures - they totally made me smile and you look like you are having such a good time.

And I've found that even if clothes hang with the tags on them for months in my closet, eventually I find the perfect outfit for them - so it all works out :)

I love the flowers in the last pic.

I did the same w/ clothes this summer. I forced myself to incorporate anything that I didn't get a chance to wear into my wardrobe so I didn't feel so bad about the money I spent/wasted. I need to start shopping smarter.

I like your skirt, though. You could also pair it w/ black tights this fall/winter to get more mileage out of it.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment! I love your skirt! I tend to do the same thing....hoard things through a season then feel guilty, and wear them as much as I can! Your pictures are adorable!
