Taking it to the Max!

Wearing long skirts has never been my thing. However, after seeing how lovely my BFF, Azeeza, looked donning a Zara maxi during her recent trip to Italy, I've refocused my fashion lens. Paired with a fitted tank or flowy blouse, maxi skirts can look polished and chic, yet still summery and laid-back.

While I admire the stylish, floor-skimming skirts on others, I'm still "skirting" around the idea of rocking this sure-to-be sizzling trend.

These seem to be making a circle. I have one that I got from Express a few years ago. I guess I'll have to bring it back out.

Love them! I am not a fan of my chicken legs and am grateful for fashions that allow me to keep 'em covered up.

I was in NYC this weekend and saw this style everywhere. I used to wear this in high school a lot, so it shouldn't be that big of a stretch. The only thing is that it's hot as death in Chicago in the summer, so I try not to wear that much fabric anywhere. LOL!
