Super Sunny Saturday

So I decided to jump on the maxi skirt band wagon...



Skirt-Express/Tank, Jacket-Old Navy/Jewelry-F21, Nordstroms

I was not sure how I felt about maxi skirts, being a gigantic 5'4", but I thought I would try the style and see if it floats.  Verdict...I like it.  The skirt is so comfy and flowy.  Next time, I think I am going to wear a top that has more waist definition or maybe a belt.  I cannot wait to style it during the the summer months with tank tops and wedge sandals.  I would love to find another one, maybe with fun pattern.

Had a great day Saturday....this was the perfect outfit for the days activities...it was 60 degrees and sunny. I went out for lunch with my mom and aunt to The Palace for chinese food...mmm...yum! We had such a good time telling stories, laughing, and eating way too much Chow Mein.  Then my mom and I went shopping...bra shopping!  Not very exciting for most people, but it was monumental for me.  After all the surgeries, my chest was finally small enough I could wear pretty, lacy bras in fun colors...yeah...they might not be real, but they are healthy!!  I also bought a pair of Toms shoes.  I wasn't sure it they would have enough support to be comfy, but they are sturdier and have more of an arch than expected.  I took home a pair in gray and I cannot wait to wear them.
 
All in all it was a wonderful and productive day!

You're rockin' the maxi skirt! Right there with you at 5' 3" but you've inspired me - I'm totally going to give it a try!

I, too, am never sure about the maxi trend since I am the same height as you. This? Is perfect! If I do decide to participate in EBEW this month I may be copying this look. Seriously, LOVE.

I am so happy you got some TOMS! They get even more comfy with wear, too. My gray ones have been really versatile for me.

I like how you styled the maxi skirt. I don't have any skirts, but I do have a maxi dress I got last summer. I'm looking forward to bringing it out soon.


It sounds like you had a really nice Saturday! The weather has been nice this weekend. (until the storms we're expecting tonight...)

Love the maxi skirt look on you...and a tank top and wedges sounds perfect for the warmer months. At all of 5'2, I've been a little hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, myself, but you pulled it off so well, I may have to just give it a try :)
