Maxis and the War on Umbrella Sedge

My backyard is a battlezone and plants are dying. Seriously, you guys. I'm doing my best to remember to water my flowers more than once a week, but with my black thumb, that's a challenge. To make matters worse there's an evil villain attempting a hostile takeover. I'm talking about...dun dun dunnn...umbrella sedge.

Ugh. I shudder to look at it. Home Depot sells the stuff, so apparently some people actually like it and plant it on purpose. But ours showed up unannounced and univited and somehow managed to get around the backyard quicker than Lindsey Lohan at an open bar. (Sorry L, I loved you in Mean Girls...)
I am officially declaring war.
On the sedge, not on Lindsey.

In other news,
I've been seeing the cutest maxi dresses all over the stores and blogs recently! Being a not-exactly-towering 5 foot nothin', I've been completely avoiding a little hesitant to give this trend a go. Julie (a phenomenal blogger and fellow shorty) from The Funny Thing of It Is featured an adorable printed maxi on her blog a couple weeks ago, and suggested I might find something at Forever 21. (Insert forehead slap here) Hello, why didn't I think of that?? So, off to F21 where I found a simple ruffled, strapless number in navy that I had all kinds of fun playing dress-up with. Yes, it smacks of prom chic, circa 1974. But nevermind that! It's comfy! And fun! And the moral of the story is, you don't have to be Gisele Bundchen to get your maxi on!
Cardi: F21, Necklace: FiveTenFifteen

Do you maxi?


  1. Jenn,

    You look so fresh and feminine in your maxi. I love the way you tie your cardigan.

    You have managed to look chic and might I add a little sexy in your dress. And you're not even showing lots of skin...that takes talent!

    Thank you for allowing me to use your photo in today's post!

    1. Thank you Adrienne! And thank you so much for including me in such a fun post! :-)

  2. Wow Jenn you look absolutely beautiful in every single photo! Maxi's more than suit with you! I agree with the gorgeous Adrienne, you do look sexy in your dress!
