I’m waving my white flag again.  I’ve been resisting a maxi skirt.  But as has been the trend lately, Alison told me to get one anyway.

So I went shopping.  I’m pretty sure I tried on at least ten maxi skirts before settling on this one. I’m still not sure that I like how it looks on me.  I’m tall so I usually go for something shorter, and this feels like a lot of skirt.

However.  I don’t care what it looks like, because it is the most comfortable item of clothing I’ve ever worn, and I can wear it outside the house, unlike my favorite pajamas. It’s cool and forgiving, and perfect for hot summer weather. In related news, I saw two women at the grocery store today wearing pajama bottoms.  Really?  I should have told them about my maxi skirt!  

I’ve had this denim vest for years.  It’s been sitting in my closet because I was never sure how to style it.  I really like it with the lime green shirt and the maxi skirt.

So fine, Alison was right again.  Why do I ever doubt her?  If I haven’t convinced you, here are some other cute ways to style a maxi skirt.
