“Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans," John Lennon said that. Since deciding to jump into Bloggers Do it Better, I have been planning my maxi skirt styling in my minds eye. In my imagination...it was stunning, even in the mirror, I thought "oh yeah," and this evening when I loaded the pictures I discovered my plan had not worked out so well. So, not to be thwarted, I grabbed my son and ordered that he take some pictures! I stripped off the sweater I had worn with the maxi skirt all day and just went with the tank I was wearing underneath and added a belt. Well, I just loaded those pictures...and there are no winners there either! So, I'm going to go ahead and show them to you, knowing none of it worked out as planned! But hey, I said I'm fabulous, not perfect!
 This is after...here comes before....

Sweater:American Eagle/Tank,Maxi,Earrings and Sandals:Target/Scarf, Necklace and Cuff:Ruche

 I had truly convinced myself that I could totally pull off a big sweater with a maxi skirt...but I'm no Olsen twin. Since I couldn't pull off fabulous today...here's some fabulous Ashton to make up for it!
