I can't stop buying maxi skirts for the following reasons:
1. I don't have to shave if I wear them.
2. They're not pants.
3. The waistline forgives.
4. I can dress them up...or down.
5. I can sleep in them (tested that one out on Saturday--pure, comfortable success).
Jeff agreed to take my picture because I posed with the deck steps he recently rebuilt.
Yes, we still have to stain the whole deck and one random board is brown, but they sure are beautiful.
Skirt: American Eagle Outlet (closest I could find at AE)
Sandals: Pink & Pepper via Marshall's (cute Steve Madden option)
Bag: It's Kenneth Cole Reaction via Boscov's for $35! (nice from Amazon)
Top: Old Navy (close, inexpensive option from Old Navy)
Belt: Express (I believe)
Occasion: Cousin's birthday party
Comfort Rating: 10/10 (despite the belt)
Comments: I tried the shirt tied in a knot, but that didn't work for this skirt. It landed at an odd spot above the skirt. I tried leaving the shirt loose, but it made it me look too boxy.
I tucked it in, but it didn't look pulled together until I added the belt.
Restyling Options: For work, I'd throw on my khaki and white polka dot cardigan or my plaid blazer.
If it were a little bit chillier, I'd throw on a jean jacket.
If it were winter time, I'd replace the sandals with flats and throw on a leather jacket.
P.S. Linking up with FundayMonday.
