Return of the maxi

 Today's outfit was chosen for no other reason but comfort!  You know how some days you just need something comfortable?  So here you have it.  I've been wanting to pair a simple t-shirt with this dress for awhile now, so I took the opportunity to do that today.

 I also had some fun with Megan Mae Buttonflowers since it's been awhile since I've worn any.  I added them to my belt and I think they add a fun pop of color against my plain white t-shirt.  I took a close up down below.

I've been noticing that while I still have light outside in the mornings, it's starting to change a bit.  The angle of the sun isn't as high so it's making my pictures a little more challenging.  I'm going to keep trying different spots in the yard though, it's too soon to give up outdoor pictures all together yet!

It's been awhile since you've seen my kitties, so I have a couple of sleepy kitten pictures to share this morning.  On the left we have Taylor the muffin cat and on the right we have Pippin the blob.  Both looked so comfy, I really wanted to join them!

I don't think they are all that sad that we are back to work, they like to be lazy!  But when we're home they do hang out with us quite a bit.  I'm sure we wore them out a bit while we were home so much those couple of days!
