It's A Wrap!!

Remember this Lilly Pulitzer wrap skirt I wore about a month ago? I told you then that it was reversible. So today, I reversed it and wore the other side.  You've gotta like paying $8 for a Lilly skirt and being able to wear it like 2 different skirts!

 I had a hard time finding something to wear with this side.  I don't think I was thinking outside the box enough. And I just ended up wearing a white tank. At least it has an interesting neckline.  What color would you guys put with this?
Jake wanted his picture made, too!

I'm actually writing this post from Pigeon Forge. Yesterday I attended the wedding of a daughter of my other best friend, B.  It was everything a wedding should be. Beautiful, sweet and surrounded with love from family and friends.  They got married next to a gorgeous stream in Gatlinburg, TN.
See how pretty?
And speaking of pretty, Leah looked pretty good in her skirt and purple shirt, too! (The wedding was purple, so we tried to stick to the theme. The flowers at the top of the post were the brides bouquet.)

I found the perfect dress, for me, a couple of weeks ago at Ross. I knew I wanted a maxi dress, but I just couldn't find one that was a. the color I wanted and b. inexpensive.  This dress was both! I snagged this baby for $17! And a pair of thongs previously bought at Kohl's for $10 completed the outfit! I added the Soul Friends necklace that B gave me for my birthday, some navy and purple earrings and I was ready to go!  Oh, funny story.  Leah forgot to pack my hairbrush when she was finished with it Thursday.  So, here we are in the hotel, trying to get ready, me trying to tame this 'fro I've got going on and I have NO hairbrush! I had a comb and my fingers. Yeah. 

Congratulations to the newly weds!! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!!


  1. Did you go eat at the Apple Barn? I LOVE that place! With your Lily skirt, I think a yellow would be great with it! Or maybe even pale gray. I'm not the most adventurous color combiner; but I think even I would try those combinations. Travel safe! Hugs! ~Serene

  2. Oh, why didn't I think of yellow!! I have a yellow shirt!!

    We didn't go to the Apple Barn this time. We've been before, though. It's definitely yummy!

  3. when you said thongs ... I was thinking of a different kind of thongs, and couldn't figure out why first off you needed a pair? and second how they would complete your outfit ... oh well ... as for the color -- I'm not very adventurous either, but I do get some help from looking at quilts with the colors that I like.

  4. I actually love the skirt with the white. And I think your long dress is gorgeous.

    What a great place for a wedding. I live in Knoxville and get to the mountains every chance I get. It is so relaxing.

  5. The reversible skirt is beautifully crisp--you could try it with a grey top of some sort.

    Your dress is perfect for a wedding.

  6. Kari, I thought flip flops sounded too casual, so I decided to call them thongs. I should've said thong sandals! LOL

  7. I love the color blue in this skirt, I would love to see a navy stripe shirt with this skirt.
    The watercolor maxi is just too fab!!!
