Fashion on Friday


I'm a big skirt wearer in the summer so I'd love to add a brightly colored maxi-skirt paired with a simple white tank, a chunky necklace and some flat sandals to my wardrobe this year...... could easily become my "go-to" outfit for day or night.

I'm actually feeling a little "maxed out" about now too.  This week has flown by and yet my "to do" list is still a mile long.  Some amazing weather and the promise of a big adventure next week (more on that later) are keeping me afloat.  Thanks so much to all of you who have taken the time to leave a comment this week.  It truly brightens my day! 

How about you?  Any big or little plans this weekend?  I spotted this yummy goodness over at the stylish blog Swanky Chic Fete this week and I'm thinking I may whip some of these up in honor of St. Patty's Day tomorrow.

Shamrock Shake Shooters 
(makes 1 giant shake or 2 generously sized shakes) 

3 cups good quality vanilla ice cream
1 3/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
green food coloring, if desired
blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into glasses and serve

recipe from babble
