M.I.A. Maxi.

I didn't mean to drop dead on you guys for the last 4 days or so but I have been so busy with lots of visits and some family gatherings. It has been so busy all around. Plus, on Friday & yesterday I was pretty much gone all day. On top of that I did some shopping AND we are getting ready for some special guest for this Wednesday. My mom is off for an entire week too so it's important that Vivian & I spend some time with her. Exactly a month ago today we came to Michigan and before I know it the next 3 months will go away soon and in early November we will be back home to Tirana.

I have so many pictures & outfits resting on folders in my lap-top but just haven't had enough time to post any of them. However better late than never. I have worn quite a few Maxi(s) this Summer and this is from a while back but I had to show it. I love how I added some Bright Blue touches to this White Dress and if you add the Red from the Floral Print it becomes Patriotic. Vivian is also proudily displaying her American Colors in her Red, White & Blue Nautical Outfit. I love this Flouncy Dress, what about you?

Thanks for reading and have a Great Week!
I absolutely love this photo of Vivian. She looks ADORABLE in it. =)

    1. I enjoy Maxis at Summertime too and unlike last year, I wore a lot of them this year because I added a bunch of new ones to my closet, also. And I agree Floral is so Pretty too. A Floral Maxi always makes a punch. =)
