i'm a virgin

I couldn't even type that with a straight face.
Because my husband would have left me by now if I'd held out for the past three years of our marriage.
And I smile when I lie.
Or do I?
But now that I have your attention, I am in fact a virgin of a different sort.
Today is the first time I'm linking up with Megan over at Mackey Madness for Sometimes and Always!

Sometimes: I work out.
Always: I do squats and lunges while blow drying my hair.

Sometimes: I try new things.
Always: I'm glad I did even if they didn't go as planned. Life's for living and learning, my friends.

Sometimes: I go shopping. For clothes.
Always: I have buyer's remorse. Until I wear a cute outfit with the clothes I bought, then I feel justified.

Sometimes: People annoy/frustrate/irritate the piss out of me.
Always: I remember everyone is fighting their own battle.

Sometimes: I wonder if the grass is really greener.
Always: I take a minute to reflect on all the good things in my life, and realize the grass is probably still dead during the summer on the other side.

And now, a conversation with my husband:

Oh, and I think I could live in maxi dresses all summer.
They keep my leg hair from growing while I'm in my freezing office all day, and they are cool and comfy for warm weather. Plus, they are easy to dress up or down.
Here are some ways I've been wearing my maxis:
{dress, shirt, sandals: Old Navy. belt: Forever 21}
{dress: Target. jean jacket: Old Navy. shoes and bracelets: Forever 21. earring: Stella & Dot}
{dress, vest, shoes: Old Navy. bracelets: Forever 21. earrings: Stella & Dot}
{dress, shoes, belt: Old Navy. top: too old to remember. necklace: Ebay. bracelets: Forever 21}

The first and the last outfits were a bit out of my comfort zone, but I thought "oh, hell with it" and wore them anyway. 
You win some, you lose some. I'm OK with that. But you never know until you try.
Plus, I just told you I like trying new things.
And I hate hypocrites.

Happy Tuesday, sweet thangs!

"Sometimes: People annoy/frustrate/irritate the piss out of me.
Always: I remember everyone is fighting their own battle."

The always is one of my favorite quotes. I need to remember it more often.

Your outfits are super cute! I love maxi dresses. Perfect for the summer time since they look amazing with one or two accessories.

Love the outfits! I think maxi's are pretty much the best thing ever!
I usually have buyers remorse in the opposite direction. I love to shop but feel guilty doing it until I find some really cute stuff & then it makes it all better.
