Another Rainy Day

I love spring rain!  It smells so good and makes everything so much greener.  Today was another rainy yet lovely day.
It was a bit rainy for a photo shoot but luckily my awesome friend/photographer Brittany rocks and was up for it.
I am in love with this maxi dress and have worn it more than I want you to know...Today I decided to wear it as a skirt, and it worked mah-valously.  I am thrilled to find a new way to get to wear this awesomely comfortable, boaderline pajama-like and cute at the same dress.
I was thrilled to find another chance to wear my surprisingly versatile yellow belt.
The top in these pictures is actually jade green (it looks a bit turquoise in these photos). I loved how it stood out against the navy.  Three cheers for wearing pajamas all day!!

  46. This look is so perfect! So free-flowing with the maxi skirt, but equally as classic with preppy stripes, cardigan, and polished accessories! :)
