**Before I start today's WIWW, I wanted to remind everyone to enter my big birthday giveaway! Lots of fun items will go to one lucky winner, including a $20 store credit to Dear Nicole! It is open until midnight on Friday so head on over and enter!**

Oh and also head on over to my friend Shannon's blog Shannanigans today. I'm guest blogging!

And a random thought...I think I always look short in these photos, but I'm 5'9". How tall do you think I look? Maybe it is the ginormous map hanging behind me. :)

As usual I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy, No Model Lady and Momma Go Round. Links in my link list!

You look amazing in the Maxi Dress! You are lucky 5'9"? I'm 5'3" and the Maxi would be swimming at my ankles!

Carla said...

Love the maxi dress! So cute on you!

The Martha Complex said...

I would have never thought you were 5'9. I am not saying you look short, but you don't look so tall either. :)

I love the maxi dress!

BTW - the birthmark on your foot? My daughter has the same one on her lower back.

Mandy @ This Girl's Life said...

DeeAnna - the really funny thing is that this dress is a petite! I can't imagine it working for someone much shorter.

TMC - I have grown to love my birthmark and I hope your daughter does as well!

Kathleen said...

You look drop.dead.gorgeous in your maxi dress. It's awesome!!

What beautiful outfits, I love them all.

Have fun with that Fossil bag. I think the quality, organization, and color and just amazing.

Happy belated bday!

Looks like it was a great birthday! Love that new Kohl's top. I got a top recently that looks a bunch like it. Man, I need to shop at Kohl's more. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such sweet comments. ;)

I love your new maxi dress and your other new dress from Kohls. They are both too adorable!

Super cute...looks like your back drop is a classroom?!?! I am a teacher, too. I usually take my WIWW photos at school because I have an awesome mirror (since i am home ec teacher), but we're not back to school yet...

I am from the Nicole's (Dear Nicole) hometown!!!

Jodi said...

Love the new dresses! They look great on you, especially the maxi! I wouldn't have guessed you were that tall either but when I scrolled back up to look at your pics again I could totally see it :) Happy bday to you! (and lol about the hair tie :)

Nicky said...

Oooh that grey dress is adorable on you! It would look super cute with a semi-cropped denim jacked in the fall! And everything else too!
