The idea behind Five Take is pretty simple. One theme, five people… resulting in five different looks. The only restriction is having to shop from our closets. Sounds easy enough, right?
This week, our challenge was a maxi dress. When we did this theme last year, it was my first time wearing one.
I guess you can say I got over my misgivings. Since then, I’ve added a “few” to my wardrobe.
I wouldn’t say that maxi dresses (and skirts) are my favorite type of clothing, but they are turning out to be extremely versatile. I can wear one as pajamas, in the summer, in the winter, layered… really, there are a lot of ways. My favorite is pajamas, haha.

My maxi skirts and dresses have taken me through winter, and the transition into spring… but the last few days we’ve been hovering around 90°F. When packing up my clothes, I found a couple of my summer dresses, like this blue number, and thought about giving it a spin.
After reading 100% cotton on the tag, it was inevitable.
I spent the day out at my parents’ house for the neighborhood garage sale. Since I didn’t actually bring anything it was more to spend some time with my family before the move. I was up at 5:30 am to get out there early – no makeup, no accessories. I did have to go dig up a pair of sandals. I thought I could get away with flats until May (it has been raining) but they looked silly.
91°F today, thunderstorms and almost 30°F cooler on Wednesday. The weather needs to make up its mind!
