It’s another floral maxi dress! I’m seriously in love with floral this year!

I just added this dress (in very limited quantities) to our Deborah & Co. store and I loved wearing it to church yesterday. It has side pockets and the fabric is so very, very comfortable! It feels like you are wearing pajamas (no, this isn’t LulaRoe!).

I also ordered new boots from Amazon and wore them for the first time. I really liked how comfortable they were for being a higher heel, and for taking a chance and ordering online. I ordered the Khaki color, but they have a large selection of colors available!

I’ve been having fun wearing makeup again lately. During our huge house remodel I pretty much gave up wearing much makeup or jewelry, life was in survival mode. I really missed wearing makeup most of all so it’s high on my list to do when I can. I’m back to wearing almost all Younique makeup as it seems to work the best for me.

You can see the makeup I wore in the picture above. If you are looking for a good natural looking lip color the Affluent color is what I’m wearing. It’s a very mild color. The concealer is a favorite of mine, I’ve used several different concealers and it works by far the best out of any I’ve tried. Yes, the lid is missing. Somehow a child took it off and I can’t find it. Motherhood…:)

Almost all the makeup is Younique except the mascara.  I had the chance to try a new mascara from Lancome and I love it!

Believe it or not, I’ve never worn a pencil skirt like this! Most of the pencil skirts I find in the store are not long enough, so I’ve never gotten a nicer skirt to wear to church. Sean and I went out for a quick date night last week and we ran into Marshalls together. It’s actually a favorite date night spot. Sean loves to look at shoes (he doesn’t have a huge shoe collection but he loves shoes!), and I love to look at just about everything else. 🙂

These pictures don’t show the color very well, but it’s a chocolate brown skirt.

The waistband is stretchy, which is lovely. 🙂

I love that it covers my knees even when I’m sitting down!

What I Wore

Pencil Skirt – Premise Brand (I can’t find it online anywhere)

Shirt – Kohls

Sweater – Used to be sold on Deborah & Co.

Makeup – Younique

(I’ve come back to this makeup, so far it’s the best I’ve found for my skin that covers!)

I’m not sure I’ve had a week filled with so many different emotions in awhile now. Wednesday my sister and I went to go visit a friend in the country, and Olivia (who is 7 now) was on a rope swing and slipped off and broke her wrist. :/ We ended up in two different hospitals with an ambulance ride to transport us to the second hospital. She did amazingly well, but it was a scary night!

The rest of our week has had ups and downs, we did an adoption fundraiser for my sister and brother in law and that ended up being such a blessing! But that same day some friends of ours had their baby but the baby has some serious health issues and so I was crying over that right before going to do the fundraiser for my sister. Saturday evening we ran over a bolt and our tire instantly started losing air, fast. So Sean had to find a tire store and work on getting that fixed, it seemed like the appropriate way to end our week.

I feel like it should be the Fourth of July in this outfit and not officially fall, but we have experienced a burst of heat here in Missouri and there was no way I was putting on any sort of fall outfit! Thankfully it’s supposed to cool back down this week.

I have been trying a BB Foundation from 100% Pure company. I wanted to fall in love with it and sing it’s praises all over the blog, but if you have any sort of blemishes at all it just won’t cover. :/ It’s a very mild foundation, and I think a lot of people wear an actual foundation to cover up blemishes.

Shirt – JCPenny (Worthington Petite Shirt)

I don’t know about you, but during the school year I love our weekends! I’m so thankful for two days where I don’t have to think about school and stress about getting it done at a decent hour each day. We are working on improving our school days and getting a better routine in place.

This past weekend our oldest son and daughter started orchestra practice for the fall. That goes through November, so every Saturday they have to be dropped off for practice. In the afternoon we worked on painting our living room. We have wood beams up on in our vaulted ceilings that we are painting white. I wish they were a pretty wood color and we would just leave them be, but it’s an orange looking wood color. After we get the beams painted we will then paint the walls.

I worked on whitewashing our brick fireplace as well. It still needs a bit more work, but it’s coming along.

Floral Midi Dress that is perfect for fall!

And now for what I wore! I’m getting in some lovely new dresses for fall and winter at Deborah & Co. and this is one of them!

This dress has buttery soft fabric. I just love it! And it has pockets on the sides, which is amazing. This dress is available in this charcoal color, and a plum color, in sizes small-x-large.

I think it would look a lot better if I had some light weight tights on with the ankle boots. After six children my legs are covered in varicose veins, but sometimes you just have to accept life. 😉

We had a conversation going in my modest Facebook group the other day about knee high boots versus ankle boots. Some ladies are having trouble finding knee high boots in the stores, because ankle boots are so popular. I’m curious, what type of boots are you planning on wearing this year?

Mini Flexi Clip

I pulled some of my hair back on the side with a mini flexi clip, after I had curled it in hot rollers.

Have a terrific Monday!
