Chocolate Fountains Are The Best Kind of Fountain...

Worn Sunday, May 1...Wow, I cannot believe it is May already.



Skirt-Express/Top-Banana Republic/Sandals-Urban Outfitters/Jewelry H&M, Francesca's

I admit it...I am in love with the maxi skirt. So comfortable, versatile and I think it makes me look tall...or at least feel tall!

I did a bit of shopping Friday, bought this skirt, a lot of fun jewelry and this top.  this great lace shirt with attached cami was $7 at Banana Republic...7 freaking dollars...40% off the sale price of $12.  I am planning lots of outfits with it for the summer...what a steal!

Today the family went out for a fantastic brunch at Pinstripes...it is food, bowling and boccee ball.  Besides the amazing buffet, there is a dessert table with a chocolate fountain.  There is an assortment of fruit, pretzels, rice krispie treats and cookies that you can drench in chocolate...genius!!  I think I had about 10 strawberries covered in chocolate!
After brunch we all went bowling.  The boys loved it...me not so much.  If I cannot do something good, I don't enjoy it very much.  Lets just say, the boys beat me!!

Very simple chic outfit. Like the touch of animal print with the thin belt and your sandlas look very cool from what I can see.

Family bowling night sounds fun.

How the heck did you get a cami for $7 at Banana??? Awesome girl! I agree, I love the maxi as well. It is super comfortable and I think it looks great on you! You do look tall in it! :)

I love your post title! i couldn't agree more. And sounds like you got some great stuff this weekend, Banana Republic keeps sending me emails about their sales and I'm trying to stay away..

Oh yum, chocolate fountain has me in a whole spiral of fantasizing about foundue. Yummmm!! And I love the skirt. I've been resisting the trend, but I'm ready to jump on board this summer.

I love the top! It looks great with the maxi, and I can't wait to see what else you have planned :)

And don't even talk to me about bowling! I went once for a team-building event at work, and I think my high score on the day was something like a 52. I am BAD...

Totally with you on feeling tall in maxis. Strange, because before wearing them I thought they'd make me look stumpy. You look absolutely chic and comfy in this- my favorite combo!
