WIWW - Family Reunion Style

Because I spend so much time shopping, thrifting, altering clothing and thinking about what to wear, I thought it might be fun to post weekly of what outfits I've put together throughout the week for me or my daughter. I plan to have a WIWW (What I Wore Wednesday) post every week displaying either my style, Widget's style, or both.

I mentioned our family reunion (which we attended in early June), but I didn't show you any of my outfits that I wore during the trip. We were in St. George, southern Utah, and the weather was HOT (like over 100 degrees hot). After church on Sunday, we gathered for our first meal together. I wanted to still look presentable (even if the heat made me want put on my swimsuit and sit poolside). The interesting thing about this outfit is the statement necklace...everything else was to compliment the long necklace and my pretty hair :)

One of my Hubby's cousins designed shirts for this specific family reunion, and we were assigned to wear them on the same day. We (the siblings of my Hubby -and their spouses and children) got together that day to play at the park and go indoor miniature golfing. Since we all wore about the same shirt, I thought I'd show you what the three women, in our family, wore that day. (You can even check out what my Hubby and my bro-in-law were wearing -take a look in the top right corner of the picture below).
 Me - Sun Glasses: Old Navy, Top: Family Reunion shirt, Cropped Pants: Old Navy,
Shoes: Buddha (sold at Dillards) 
 
While in St. George, we also visited a dinosaur museum. At the museum, there was a 'kids station' where the kids could color, play with stencils, and fold papers into a Pteranodon (a type of flying dinosaur). I wore my striped maxi dress and posed with my newly made Pteranodon. Every time I have the Hubby take pictures, he takes inappropriate pictures (you know-like of just my butt, or just my boobs). I was in the middle of getting after him when he snapped this picture; which ended up being the only almost full body picture that turned out okay. Boy...what am I going to do with him?
 
 Dress: Target, Undershirt: DownEast Basics,

And, Widget is photo-bombing the picture, so I'll let you know what she was wearing as well.
