What She Wore Wednesday- Maxi's

I know this is a bit late, but I wanted to make sure I posted about our Easter celebration before I moved on to the fashion!

On Sunday, Hagen and I both wore maxi's. I'll start off with Hagen's...

 Hagen wore a green printed maxi dress, sequined shrug, brown flats and wooden bead necklace. I love how everything flows together!
This picture was taken outside of the cowboy church we visited on Sunday.
I really like this picture. It looks like she's a jungle princess! This is outside the Mexican Restaurant.

 Now it's my turn...
I wore a maxi skirt, a deep purple tank, tan crocheted shrug and roman sandals. 

The maxi skirt is actually a funny story...
I was kinda stressing out about what I was going to wear for Easter, when Hagen dug out a maxi dress that neither of us have worn in a while. I was excited! When I went to try it on, I found that the zipper was stuck, and refused to budge. We all took turns yanking and prying on it, but that just made it worse! So, I resolved to turn it into a skirt.

I pulled out the sewing machine, and went through my mental checklist:
thread- check
bobbin thread- check
foot pedal- check
iron- check 
elastic- check
pins- wait, where are the pins?

We searched and searched, but alas, no pins! I had to improvise. I ironed my seam down well, and used a few bobby pins to secure the fabric. It was a simple alteration, once I was able to do it. All in all, I was pleased with how it turned out!
