Landing on the Sun

maxiskirt4
 
 In theory I'm pretty excited for summer.  I love just throwing on a dress and getting on with the day.  But let's be real, summer out here is super hot and dreadful!  By the time the summer months get here I'll be wishing for spring yet again.  While I may just have to wear one layer (and tights at night) over a dress in spring, it's days like this that make me anticipate the warmer months.

I'm kind of embracing the crop top look these days.  Thankfully, I've been doing crunches everyday so I feel confident wearing them.  I'm kind of a "modest" woman (heavy on the kind of) so if I wear a crop top I'll always pair it with a long skirt or pants.

Which brings me to this skirt.  I love it but I'm rarely attracted to it when it's hanging in my closet.  If I see a maxi skirt online or in a store I'm instantly inspired, yet it never translates to my own wardrobe.  Here is my attempt to challenge myself and give some love to this wonderful piece.  Unfortunately, it won't make too many appearances until I can find other ways to style it.  If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them!

  3. You look stunning. I'd never dream of wearing a crop top. Maybe one day when I'm as thin as you! But these colors look great together and you are totally rockin' that hippie vibe.

  5. Your crunches are doing you justice! You look great! I definitely have to agree with the whole modesty thing, its hot, I'll show some skin, but with what I'm comfortable with showing!

  9. I love the crop top looks, with the high waist bottom, showing just a little strip of skin. It's cute & you don't gotta be in *perfect* shape for it. Haha

  14. You're gorgeous and that skirt is fabulous - it makes you look like Ariel, the mermaid :D So cute. I know what you mean about crop tops - I'm slowly working up the confidence, hopefully I'll get there by the time summer rolls around the corner!

    Girl, I'm so glad I followed you. Your style rocks and you are so personable! :)

  15. We always want what we dont have... here i'm in fall, and i love it, but as soon as it gets colder i'm gonna be all like..."oh summer come back to meeeeee"

  16. First off, let me just say I saw this on one of your social media outlets this morning (maybe FB?) when taking a short work break and was on my phone this morning and I've been dying to get home to a useful-sized screen just to see this outfit. One of my favorites, for sure!

    Also, your crunches have paid off. I like the combination of the shorter top with the longer skirt. As you said, it balances it out. Hoping you think of ways to remix it soon; I love maxi skirts and this one skims your figure just beautifully and classily.

  17. you can pull of this look so well!! the only other thing I can think of that I like with maxi skirts would be a very slightly loose, classic scoop neck sleeveless top, tucked in and then a belt to make sure the waist is still defined...this might be really cute with a simple white one tugged in and a belt that gives a pop of color...yellow or burnt sienna or something

  31. That skirt is gorgeous! I'm digging the crop top look too. I bought 3 of them this month! I'm very excited for my Painted Perennials top from Modcloth to arrive. :)

    Also, I was scrolling through Pinterest really fast and this look reminded me of The Little Mermaid, my favorite Disney princess!
