After a day in bed I am feeling barely good enough to get dressed today. The inspiration for this outfit came from the lovely E from District of Chic:
I found this vintage maxi dress in my mom's spare closet. It is another left over from her 2nd hand store I think. All made out of crochet then fully lined. It is quite heavy and thick and but looks great. I got the idea to wear a top over to treat it like a skirt from E. I chose red from the colors of the skirt as a top. If I had a very thick and cool red necklace like hers I was going to wear a coral top with it but since I didn't chose this combo instead...
Got this necklace from F21. It is cool cause the whole chain part is pearly beads and the feathers are peach.

Today's Activities: Yesterday was a blur. I had spent the night at my Dad's and woke up feeling like a train wreck. Came home and my husband was equally sick (kids were at Grandma's) so we had a warm breakfast then hit the urgent care clinic. I was feeling so bad that I couldn't even sit in the waiting room so I waited in the car while he signed us in and got me when it was my turn. We both were diagnosed with flu and bronchitis and given the same antibiotics. I slept and slept. My hubby got the kids so they can nap at home so I saw them a little bit to read stories then he took them again there for my mom's b-day Party. I missed it all. When I woke up it was already 8 PM!
My mom and Aunt came by so I can say good-bye to my aunt who is leaving for Turkey today.
Feeling a bit better this morning. Tried to pick up the house a little and brought the kids to the indoor play area.
Will be taking my Dad to his first chemo therapy in the afternoon. Hoping all goes well!
This was a photo taken on Saturday with my Aunt. Her 2 week visit to USA has ended so quickly...
We'll miss her....
