an ode to the maxi skirt

 {linen shirt: gap(thrifted), tank: target, belt: stradivarius, skirt: nordstrom, sandals: h&m, glasses: local shop, baubles: gifts, earrings: target}

I love this skirt.  I wear it all the time.  It's my go-to hot weather piece.  I feel dressed up enough to go out in it but it's cool enough that I don't perspire through everything in the first five minutes.  What I'm really enjoying is the straight cut.   I'm a girl with a partiality to trim, tailored pieces like pencil skirts and oxford blouses, so floofy, frilly summer skirts really don't ever do it for me.  The simple lines of my floral maxi really work for me though.  And..it's cotton!  It breathes!  Oh, glorious, glorious cotton, let me sing thy praise!  Now that I have the skirt I need to invest in starch so I can get my collar to stand up straight again...

Also, wanted to give a quick thank you to everyone who stopped by last week from The Pleated Poppy.  I was absolutely overwhelmed by your sweet comments and response to my ensembles.  You're lovely and I hope we get to see even more of each other!
