OUTFIT: Striped maxi and denim jacket


We had a pretty low-key weekend this time around.  I decided to try and clean up around the house on Saturday because it was too cold to do much else (40 degrees at the end of April?!  Craziness!) and on Sunday it was much warmer so we spent time playing around outside and grilling out.

I'm still wearing my maxi skirts like crazy!  I can't help it, they're so comfortable!


I just realized that my husband and I only have 2 and a half more weeks until our long weekend vacation and I'm starting to get really nervous now. I mentioned before that this will be our very first time being without Paige for even a night.  I know she'll be fine because my mom is watching her but it still makes me nervous.  I am really excited to go though!  I will be nice to have a bit of "us" time.

In July we have another long weekend planned but that one is a family vacation to the beach, so that will be really fun.  I have a family reunion at the end of July so we always make a trip of it and go to Ocean City, MD since it is only about 45 minutes from my family's house.  Paige had a blast at the beach last year so we're hoping she loves it again this year.


Do you have any fun vacations planned this year?

  1. One can do so much with a striped maxi skirt in neutral colors and a blue denim jacket. Love that necklace and you look lovely, J. =)

  5. We do have a pretty busy summer coming up, but that's usually what happens. We spend all winter trapped indoors so we can't wait to get out when it gets warmer out

  7. I love your look! It's really similar to the striped maxi + chambray I wore last week. Yay for vacations!! We're headed to the beach twice - once with my side and once with his. Every year they end up being back to back weeks!!

  8. Yay I really need to get my denim jacket out of the closet and finally start wearing it! May is right around the corner so I need to put my coat away. Your vacations sound really fun, you guys will have such a blast :)

  9. I have seen so many people out and about with their denim jackets that it reminded me to finally put mine on. lol! I always forget about it.

  10. Thank girl! It does look a like like your outfit, haha! Maybe I had that in the back of my mind while putting this together...and since I don't have a chambray I had to go with a denim jacket. lol! Those beach trips sound like they are going to be a lot of fun! I wish my husband and I could have flown down to Florida for a few days for our little getaway but we decided to stay close for our first trip away from baby. lol

  19. I am loving the denim jacket lately! Looks great with a maxi! I could live in maxis this time of year. Hope you have a great time at your weekend getaway in a couple of weeks! I am heading up to the finger lakes for a girls winery weekend in a couple of weeks that I am really looking forward to as well.

  21. You look adorable as always. Love the striped maxi. When we were moving last weekend, it was pouring down rain the whole day with temps just above freezing, lucky too because otherwise, we would have been stuck in a blizzard! I bet your little getaway with your husband will be so great. I hope you take some pictures while you're there!

  22. Thanks girl!! I always forget about my denim jacket so I'm trying to make a point to wear it more this spring.

  23. Thanks so much! I'm hoping next year my husband and I can go a bit farther away and maybe for a little longer. This is sort of just a first trial thing. lol! We've never had anyone watch her overnight yet so we are only going about 3 hours away. hahaha!

  24. Thank you so much! I'm getting really excited about it now that it's getting so close!

  25. Aren't they so comfortable! I love how versatile they are too. Easily dressed up or down. Maxis are also really great for me because I'm constantly crawling around and bending down with my daughter and you can't really do that in a regular dress or skirt. lol!

  26. Thanks girl! Paige is going to be so happy to get to spend time with my mom. She spoils her like crazy hahaha! I'm just being a crazy nervous mom. lol! I am getting more and more excited as it gets closer though!

  27. Thanks so much! I can't wait to get away for a little while. It's going to be great!

  28. Really?! I love them! I wear them constantly because of how comfortable they are. It's like getting away with wearing your favorite pair of sweatpants while out in public. hahaha! And thanks so much!

  29. Thanks so much! My dad's side of the family are actually the ones that live so close to the beach. We are about 6-7 hours away where we are. It's nice to be able to get time with my family and also get to relax at the beach. It's like a 2 for one vacation LOL

  30. Thanks so much! I've had this jacket for so long but I always forget about it, so I've tried to make it a point to start reaching for it more often. Your girl's trip sounds like it is going to be amazing! Sounds like a lot of fun!

  31. Thanks so much! It was really comfortable. I am all about comfortable outfits now. I have a few spring dresses but it still hasn't been quite warm enough for them because they are a little shorter, but these long ones are perfect. I also get cold really easily lol

  32. Oh man, it is so lucky that you got out when you did then! lol! The weather around here has been so up and down that you never know what to wear anymore! And thank you so much, you are a sweetheart <3
