Hello Friends! I've been away from the computer this past week visiting my mom in Owasso, Oklahoma. Minus a few phone appearances I've made an effort to focus most of my time with family. Sometimes it's important to set aside social media and enjoy your present company. Its been ages since I visited my mom at her house, at least 4-5 years. I usually convince her to come here. In truth I'm not the biggest fan of Oklahoma. It's one dull place...sorry, nothing personal to those who love the state. After living several years there I'm happy to move on to greener, more adventurous places!
But I can't be all negative about Oklahoma, two of the most wonderful, life changing things happened to me there. The first, I met the love of my life in Tulsa. My soul mate, my nerd man, and partner in adventure. The second, I had my first beautiful daughter there. My hokie pokie ookie!
Anyhoo because we drove about 11 hours to get there my visit was short but nice. The little town has greatly grown, I hardly recognize it. Thankfully things were the same, maybe slightly improved at my mom's home. We spent our days enjoying the over cast weather (still in the 90's) and took turns riding my mom's new motorcycle. Do you visit your parents often? Are they close by? Although my mom and I butt heads from time to time I wish she lived closer so I could care for her more. Perhaps someday I'll convince her.
In this shoot I'm wearing a longer flared jean skirt. I've been wanting a jean skirt for ages and when I saw this one at forever 21 I snagged it right up. I was really surprised by all the negative reviews it got. Most complained about it being too wide, too long, or flaring out too much. I think paired with the right top this skirt is fantastic. It makes me want to try other jean styles. It's also a TON easier to match tops to compared to my printed skirts. I wouldn't usually wear a cami with this style top but it's so darn low on the sides that my bra shows and I find that kind of tacky. Perhaps if I had a nice lacy bandeau or cropped cami it would look better? In the future I'm hoping sew the arm holes smaller. It's a pretty wide top anyhoo. Xoxo!
What I Wore:
Eye Glasses: Bonlook
Button Up Top: Forever 21
Cami: Forever 21

Take Care & Enjoy,
