Early Spring Maxi - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

Early Spring Maxi

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files!

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files with Jill at Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom! We are excited to have you here and would love to have you link up one of your latest outfits with us. Last week was a BIG week for us, because we had OVER 100 link ups! It is so exciting to cross into the three digits and its because of all of YOU! Thanks!


We are always looking for Co-Hosts for Thursday Fashion Files. If you haven't signed up to Co-Host, but are interested, sign up by clicking HERE. If you have already signed up for a Co-Host spot, take note that the party is now starting on Thursday at 12:00 A.M. instead of Wednesday evening.

It always amazes me that it was 5 degrees outside two weeks ago. On Monday it was almost 70 degrees and now it's 40 degrees! I'm patiently waiting to wear skirts with bare legs but until then, I'm bringing out the maxi's. Adding a warm sweater and some fun accessories will get me through until the spring weather is finally here!




This guy kept trying to photo-bomb me. Then I remembered Gina's post referencing People Style Watch's Whats In/What's Out. Cats as accessories are IN, so I scooped him up!
