Plaid + Maxi

Happpy Tuesday, y'all! It's been a puttering kind of morning~ making blueberry pancakes, replying to emails, watering plants, talking to the neighbors, hanging out with my Grand Dude...

 I loove this skirt. It's so comfortable, light, and long. It's supposed to have a foldover "yoga" waistband, but it's too big, so I have it pinned until I can find matching thread. :D

 Shirt: Consignment shop (it has a cool gathering detail on the back that makes it more feminine)
Tank: JCPenny's
Skirt: Goodwill
Flip flops: Target
Earrings: Gift

It totally drags on the floor. (standing on my toes in this last picture. :P) I love it. I need to go make lunch now... Salads anyone?
Maxi skirts... yay or nay?

  9. Absolutely my favorite! SO comfortable... I am wearing a shorter skirt today, and it's so annoying to try to keep it at a modest length. :) The longer, the better!

  10. Haha, almost every other week I wear a maxi skirt! It would be more often, except I figure it's good to get some use out of my other skirts! I love how comfy they are, though! I love the green shade of yours! Super cute!

  13. Yay for maxi skirts! I love floor length skirts but since I'm so tall { 5' 9" } I have a hard time finding one that fits me and is still floor length...I think I'd like to make my own one of these days once I'm able to buy that amount of fabric. Oh neat! I had a salad for lunch as well! :D Yeah for salads too!

  23. Maxi skirts are delightful...except when attempting to walk up/down stairs with your hands full. Then they are a recipe of awkward disaster! (Not that I have any personal experience on the subject. ;-)

  24. Totally love your maxi dress! :)

  28. Maxi skirt, totally!! ( Though Jersey Knit doesn't go with my figure. Looks great on you though!)

  29. I LOVE LOVE LOVE maxi skirts/dresses! They are my favorite! We just bought our first house and we have very steep stairs. I'm always carrying babies or something else up them and I'm scared I'm going to trip and hurt myself or someone else on them. I've been steering clear of the maxis for a little while. Hopefully once I get more used to the stairs it won't be as bad.

  30. A most hearty yay to maxi skirts!! Although being short I do find some to be quite rather lengthy, but taking off a tire works well and due to my height it still is ankle lenghth!
    Love the outfit combo!
    God bless you!

  31. This is such a cute outfit! I love maxi skirts. :) And I love how even though this is an everyday outfit, it is still feminine. I have seen a lot of woman in modest clothes, (modest jeans, skirts, dresses) but they just don't look *feminine*. You always look feminine though. :)
