March Monday Maxi Madness

I am so sick of wearing pants. And tall boots. So today I rebelled. I wore a maxi dress and booties. I cannot wait to LIVE in maxi dresses all summer long! They are just so comfy and can be dressed up or down so easily.

This is the Tolani "Boheme" dress from Anthropologie. I scored it after the holidays when they had their extra percent off sale prices. I'm afraid I didn't get much more creative than the website shot (adding a jean jacket to it). I honestly think that no matter what you paired it with, it would look great. There are so many colors and patterns in it = so many options for jackets, sweaters, belts, shoes, etc..... I just love the patchwork print. It has florals, animal prints, aztec prints, bandana prints........ AND it has pockets!

Sorry, I forgot my green today. And I also realized how rude of me it was to post those brownies last week, and not share the recipe. So here goes:
Palmer House Legendary Brownie Recipe
8 oz. semi sweet chocolate
8 oz. butter
8 oz. granulated sugar
4 oz. flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 whole eggs
1.5 cups crushed walnuts
1 cup apricot glaze

Preheat over to 350 degrees

Melt the chocolate with the butter in a double boiler. Mix the sugar, flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Mix the chocolate with the flour mixture, about 4-5 minutes. Add the eggs to the mix.

Pour the mixture into an 8" square pan. Sprinkle the walnuts on top, push the walnuts down slightly into the mixture with your hand.

Bake for 30-40 minutes. You will know when it's done, which is when the edges start to become a little crispy and the brownie has risen about 1/4 inch. Note that even when the brownie is properly baked it will taste "gooey" with a toothpick in the middle due to the richness of the mixture.

Cool down and glaze with warm apricot glaze. Enjoy!

So pretty! I love the broach you pinned to the denim jacket as well. I think you cannot go wrong with a denim jacket. The pattern on the dress is so bright and beautiful. What a great score! I love all of your poses. They make me want to be more adventurous!

I just bought my first maxi ever and my first denim jacket in years, and it was so fun to feel bohemian and relaxed instead of flirty and girlish like I usually dress. The colors in that maxi are so vibrant and gorgeous on you! Moving from Savannah to Nashville was like going from Spring to Winter. It was depressing having to trade in my ballet flats and dresses for pants and boots, so I hear you on rebelling against the cold!
