Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!  I hope you all had a wonderful, happy day filled with family and friends.  
We ended up getting to see both our moms Sunday, so it was a good day! 
Here's what I wore: 



Outfit Details:
Jeans - Lane Bryant Ultimate Slim Cut (found at an outlet store, apparently not available anymore)
Striped Tank - Catherines 
Orange Poncho/Cape - Fashion Bug (similar style)
White Flip Flops - Sanuk brand via Amazon (these are the most comfy things!)
Medallion Necklace - Forever 21
Earrings - Avenue
Bracelet - Avenue 

How was your weekend?  Did you celebrate Mother's Day?  Give or get anything awesome?

Plus Size Outfit of the Day - The Maxi


This is an outfit I wore a few months ago when it was still chilly outside.  I bought this long sleeved charcoal maxi this winter and it is the most comfortable thing ever!  
I just threw on some accessories and my old standby denim jacket and, voila!  I had an outfit!  
Outfit Details: 
Charcoal Gray Maxi Dress - Old Navy
Leopard Belt - Old Navy
Leopard Print Flats - Old Navy (similar)
Denim Jacket - Avenue
Heart Pendant - Forever 21

I'm really excited to start posting some OOTD's again.  I didn't even realize how much I missed it until I started looking back through some of my past blog posts.

So what is your go-to outfit? What is the one piece that you can throw on and feel comfy and cute in?

Gatlinburg Trip


So right before I jacked up my ankle, the hubs and I went on a long weekend trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  We actually ended up going the same week that my sis-in-law and bro-in-law and nephews went down, so we got to spend some quality time with them too. 
It was a blast!


The cabin we stayed in.




My adorable nephews, Alex and Evan, outside of the Mellow Mushroom.

 I accidentally snapped this shot while we were looking through the sunroof of the car on a nature trail.


 Me and my goofy husband.


 A homestead from the beginning of the last century.  Can you believe 11 people lived in this little house?!


Jimmy standing in one of the doorways of the above house.   He's just a little over 6', by the way.  


Here's a portion of a water-powered mill no longer in use.  

 There was a gorgeous stream that ran throughout the trail.

 Myself and Jimmy again.


 Throwing rocks in the creek.  How cute are they?! 


Have you been on a vacation lately?  Where did you go and would you go back?  I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
