OOTD: Ombre

LAmade Ombre Maxi Dress

I am hereby declaring maxi dresses…the mom uniform. LOL. Well, at least for THIS mom anyway. Hey…I’m pretty sure Rachel Zoe agrees…although hers would be head to toe sequins. =) BTW, is it just me or is the time just FLYING by? How is it almost the middle of JUNE?!?! One of my favorite sayings/quotes is “The days are long, but the years are short”. I know I’ve shared this clip on the blog before, but it’s worth repeating (IMHO). Although….parents…let me warn you now, you may get teary eyed. A good reminder to live in the moment. =) Happy Thursday friends!

P.S. LAmade is offering 20% off with code HOUSEWIFE20! Enjoy!

    Well I’m not a Mom and I still live in them! They are just so comfy!

    I too can’t believe it’s already mid-June. However, I’m already thinking about the fall, football season and all the festivities. I guess this girl isn’t a summer girl. (:

    I was just telling my hubby that time seems to go faster the older we get. Crazy. Your pics are looking better, by the way. Love the lighting in the 1st and 3rd pics. I have 1 maxi dress and haven’t worn in in a LONG time. Time to break it out for summer!

    That dress looks great on you! I would have to get it hemmed. I actually almost bought a maxi in the little girl’s department the other day so it would be the right length…but it was a little too tight in the chest! Dangit! I’m 5’4′ (not super tall, not SUPER short), but maxi dresses never fit me! Poor me. πŸ™‚

    Love your maxi! Found you through the Pleated Poppy link party. I’m wearing a maxi, also, and I’m really old so I think it’s the summer uniform for all women, not just young moms πŸ™‚
