Fave Fall Boots

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Y’all it’s fall boot season! This is the footwear I get most excited about and yesterday I fell down the rabbit hole otherwise known as “online fall boot shopping”. It’s still too hot here for wearing fall boots but those cooler days are coming, and I just couldn’t wait, I lined up all my favorites in my closet yesterday in anticipation and treated myself to these sassy platform ankle boots for autumn. Yeow!

Maxi Skirts for Summer

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

In winter, my uniform always includes yoga pants, often ones with paint splatter here or there. It’s in them where I find peace, comfort, and enough Lycra to hold everything together and create the illusion of smooth back end. Now that summer has arrived, my uniform has changed. Recently I’ve discovered that a long jersey skirt is the secret to comfort, style, and happiness. Dubbed the “maxi skirt” by all, I being all of 5’3” suffered from the misconception that these waist to toe skirts were only for tall girls. I was wrong.

My love affair began very casually, I tried one on in a dressing room a month ago and found myself buying it. Then I wore it for three days straight. Then I purchased a second and added it to the rotation. In Oahu, I popped into the Tommy Bahama outlet and scored two more. And then yesterday I ordered this one in blue tie dye (yes tie dye, how boho chic of me). 

I now have a maxi skirt for every day of the week and I confess I have fallen asleep in them more than once. I declare I shall rotate them all summer long until my friends and family stage an intervention. Here are some stylish patterned ones but I warn you, once you start wearing them, it’s hard to stop. summer maxi skirts

Pair them with a tank and some beaded sandals and you’re set for any summer outing from neighborhood picnics to travel abroad. What’s your go to summer skirt, found a great one lately? .
