Ringing of the bells….sleeves.


I got these pictures done before the sky turned dark and all hell broke loose in this state. Florida is about to get slapped around, again. But right now, it was OK and it was great time for blog pictures of today’s outfit. Or what I would wear, had I not been snuggled under a blanket obsessively watching the weather channel. I am more than likely in an oversized sweater with some city on it(love those for some weird reason.) and some pj pants. Watching the weather as I haad said and playing XBOX while my little one plays in the toybox. Friday is the day that hubby will be home with us and so it will be a very tense day of “is the roof on?” “is their a tree down?” Everyone please be safe!


The outfit I want to wear, is the dress you may have seen on here before. And if you are by chance new to the GFD fam, welcome and here it is. I got this dress from Express because it was flowy, the sleeves were romantic, and it was a cool print. It was also on SALE at Express. One of those things that look better on someone than the maniquinn, I love the coolness, it can be worn all year, just like any maxi. But this one is trendy now because of the sleeves. Ohhh those bells.

MAxi dress express I wore a big sparkly statement necklace from HAppiness btq. My son love this one too because I think it reminds him of the necklace on the movie The Hobbit. Of course he would.

maxidressit has a slit which honestly helps with walking.

    Your hair is looking gorgeous in these pictures and I love that dress and full statement necklace! I have a necklace from them and I haven’t worn it in awhile, but I need to get it out! Oh, be safe! My brother was supposed to fly to Florida for his Phd that he’s been doing and they had to cancel the trip!
