i have been converted.

 tank and tee: f21 / maxi skirt: belk / garren shoes: Blowfish Shoes / ring: gift from friend bag: courtesy of Le Mode Accessories / earrings: courtesy of Le Mode Accessories / nails: sally hansen sonic boom

i am officially a maxi skirt convert.

i honestly didn't know if i'd like this look or if maxi skirts or dresses on me would turn into floor sweepers because of my height. but by the blessings of belk, i discovered this jersey skirt and a miracle transpired. i also thought i would be ridiculously hot (in the sweaty manner, not in reference to looks) but the jersy material and the loose cut makes it surprisingly cool and comfortable.

i am in love and now am on a constant hunt for more.
do you have any recommendations of your favorite places 
to shop for maxi skirts?

much love.
[happy weekend, friend.]

p.s. just a couple more days left, folks,

  6. I wanna hug you.

    Also, it probably helps that you wear wedges/heels. I never wear them, so everything "maxi" sweeps the floor. Wop-wop-wop.

  16. It looks awesome on you! I only kind of halfheartedly gave it a whirl once, and you've inspired me to try again. I see them all the time in thrift stores, so I suppose that's got to be my favorite place to buy 'em.

    Also. Obsessed! with your pink purse :)
