chambray: old navy // skirt: ny&co (similar) // necklace: target // flats: payless (similar)

I love maxi skirts and dresses. The irony is that I am 5'10" so I usually have trouble finding ones that are long enough, but when I do, I can't get enough. During the summer, I wear long dresses and sandals nearly everyday.  When the weather gets cool, it can be tougher to figure out how to wear them. I really like this skirt because it's not too summery and I think it's pretty easy to wear with flats.

In non-clothing related items, I had such a great weekend. My brother turned twenty-three and we celebrated by eating fajitas and margaritas, I went to an art-walk and ate Big Truck Tacos, and Eric and I got plenty of hang-out time including a leisurely Saturday brunch. Basically it was a foodie weekend, which are the best kind of weekends. How was your weekend?

  1. Oh my, I had no idea how tall you are! that's awesome. I love how chambray and maxis pretty much go with everything. I'm only 5'3" and still wear maxi dresses, although usually they're too long. I'm glad you had a great weekend celebrating with your brother. Mine was fun too, I did a small amount of thrifting, got my hair cut, and did a lot of cooking. xo

  3. I love a good chambray with a maxi, especially when my shirt tails are long enough that I can tie them together :) This looks like such a comfy and forgiving outfit for enjoying a food-filled weekend (agreed... the best)!

  6. I always forget that you are tall! It must be some trickery with the camera =) Your skirt looks really comfortable, and you did a great job styling it with the chambray!

  23. I am dying to find a simple cotton knit maxi skirt like yours. And if I do, I'd love one in Gray, Black, Cobalt & Red. It looks perfect with Chambray. =)

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
