A LITTLE MORE "GIRLIE"

I hope all of you had a very happy and blessed Easter weekend, and hopefully got to spend it with family and or friends!  Friday night was dinner outside at a bistro, and Saturday night we went to an outdoor concert on a lawn to see the Old 97's. It was such a nice night to be outside listening to great music. The weather was perfect until last night, when the rain set in.

Yesterday was the most meaningful Easter to me. After going through breast cancer, I am so much more thankful for the resurrection of Christ. I guess I've always thought of Easter as "new beginnings" and God forgiving us our sins, but this year was so much more. It is a "new beginning", but one with a healed body. I am so thankful and grateful and know that God is a loving redeemer, who is still in the business of healing!

I have dressed more on the bohemian side for a long time now. It fits my life and who I am…until recently. Let's just say that without my long mane, dressing that way makes me look a little more tough. I have been on a hunt for more feminine tops that fit my style. I am not a bow or ruffle girl, so it's been hard to find things that fit the bill. I found the top I'm wearing and thought it was feminine, but not prissy. If you see anything that you think would be right, let me know!!!

I am a few weeks from my debuting my new look, but next week there might be a sneak peek. Like I have said before, these photos are taken in advance, so the next ones we shoot will be without the wig. EEEEEEK!!!!  I have packed up all of the scarves, hats and hairpieces, and am going au natural now. It's so weird…I'm almost like a different person. I ran into a few people this week that didn't recognize me. I had to say who I was! It makes me sad in a way, but have to remind myself that I AM here!!!











Have a great week everyone!

MODCLOTH CHALLENGE


I was asked by ModCloth to participate with other bloggers in their Uniquely You campaign. The challenge was to put together an outfit around their Summer Night Stroll dress. This is what I came up with, using other pieces from their website. 

I am always cold, so I loved the black and white vegan faux leather jacket to throw on over this dress. Plus, it would go with so many other things I have in my closet! The black and white striped wedge was too cute not to use! I am in love with the feather print scarf…so many things to wear with this as well!

Sometimes we assume as "MiddlePagers" that we can't find things to wear on certain websites. Look what I just did! This is definitely appropriate for any age. I hope you like it, and will check out ModCloth. And, thank you ModCloth for asking me to participate in the challenge! It was so much fun!!!

COACHELLA INSPIRED

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was so laid back and easy…just like I like them! I had a busy week last week, with something going on every night, so I was so glad to just lay low! One of the most fun things I did was have a happy hour for some younger blogger friends. They are a precious group of girls, and it was fun to just sit around and chat. I also went to a benefit that the Young Texans Against Cancer put on. It was a fashion event showing "Coachella"inspired clothing, which got me thinking about this post.

One of the things on my bucket list is to go to Coachella (only if I can stay in a nice place…let's be real!). So with it going on this weekend, it got me inspired to think about what I would wear. I saw this leopard jacket by Lily Aldridge for Velvet, and had to have it. It's military inspired, and so light weight. I knew I would wear it all spring and summer. I also just got this pair of flare jeans by Blank NYC. Have you all ever worn the line? They are my first pair and fit like a glove. They are also so inexpensive! I haven't worn a flare in so long, but am loving them.










What do you think, age appropriate outfit for a music festival? Age appropriate bucket list wish?????
Have a great day!
