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!

  1. I love the look of this dress on you, it’s comfortable and stylish! Well my country’s weather is definitely 80% summer through the year even when it’s raining so we have no need for boots.Lol
    I have been wondering ever since I discovered your blog about the Lilla rose hair clips. Since I’m in Nigeria, I have been wondering how to join and if I eventually join how the clips can get to Nigeria, including communication and all that. Anyway just thinking out loud.

  2. Another fun outfit… and those veins after 6 children do happen and I have heard moms say they would stop after 1 or 2 kids to save their bodies from the ravages of pregnancy. What a shame. Those 6 kids are SO precious… and so are my 6 kids. All children are such a blessing. Thank you for being real. Have a great week. 🙂

  3. We are in our second year of homeschooling, and I love the weekends too! A good break and time to recharge for the next school week.

    I have knee high brown riding style boots and I just last week found a comfortable pair of black ankle boots. I plan on wearing both this fall, depending on the outfit I’m wearing that day! It’s not cold here yet (not even cool, still in the 90s!) but I wore the ankle boots to church yesterday. I figure hey if the stores are selling pumpkins already then I’m wearing boots!!

  4. What a beautiful dress! I have been looking for tge perfect pair of ankle books for a whike now, the trouble is I am so tall and need a larger size! Oh well, I’ll keep my eyes open. 🙂

    Weekends are the best, enjoy!

  5. Cute dress! Out in public, I wear nude thigh highs or knee highs under my skirts to hide the varicose veins! But I always wear maxi length skirts anyway so that covers almost everything too.

  6. Carolina, you have a really great sense of style, your dress looks superb on you, its not this dress but almost whatever your wear look flawless on you. I would really want to make the same dress for me with pockets and that too in butterfly fabric. Thanks again for posting your style. Looking forward to have more posts in my mail box, so i will be subscribing to your blog right away.
