Good morning and happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend. My weekend was very low key after having surgery late last week. I've been suffering from a lot of pain in my left wrist, and the MRI and X-rays weren't turning anything up, so I needed to do a scope to find out what was causing me the pain. They found a large cyst that hadn't shown up on the previous MRI, which apparently happens sometimes. I am so grateful and relieved to know that they found the culprit and hopefully I will be completely pain free in a few weeks. Right now I'm suffering from post surgery pain, but thankfully the pain killers and a lot of rest are helping. 

I have been in a splint/cast since last Thursday, but luckily I'll be getting it off this Wednesday (ya!!!). It has been such a challenge to do things with only one arm - the things we take for granted. Luckily Adam took a few days off work, and has been here to help me with anything and everything. He's truly the best, and I couldn't have gotten through the last few days without him. Who would have fed me ice cream?!

Enough on that, and onto fashion! I took this photo pre-surgery to spare you my over sized cast that is like an extra appendage. I scored this dress from Old Navy for $3!! Yep, that's right. I'm constantly getting email updates from them on special sales and promotions. Who can say no to a discount? I love, love, LOVE a great sale!

In my experience, maxi dresses are either too clingy and tight or else are too loose and don't allow you to show off your shape. I wanted to accent my waist so I added a belt, but this dress looks great without a belt too - a win, win. Dressed up or down, maxis are great transitional pieces and something you can take from day to night. 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to connect with me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
