This weekend while grocery shopping at Walmart SuperCenter I noticed they had  nice selection of Maxi Dresses for $14.88 and $16.00.

I decided to pick this one up as a early Mother’s Day gift to myself , I’ll give it to one of my son’s to give to me on Sunday – lol

 The older I get the more I like wearing dresses & skirts, I guess that I’m reverting back to my childhood, Oh Lord, am I really getting that old?!

I love the crochet back
