I never thought that I would ever wear a maxi skirt because I am hovering somewhere inbetween 5' and 5'1". In fact, Sarah and I used to trash talk them together (her post made me giggle, so you should read that too).
But, I loved the print on this one and was planning on hemming it. But, upon closer inspection I realized the length is actually a bit flattering. It's a petite size, so it's not atrociously long on me--especially when I wear heels.
I've been seeing a lot of people styling maxi skirts really simply and I liked that a lot. Because the length of the fabric seems bold enough on it's own. This is one of my go-to shirts for layering under dresses--I hardly every wear it on it's own, but it served me quite well, apart from falling down a bit and revealing -ahem- bra straps.
Anyhow, I was a dork and pranced around in the grassy area of this park, which is Tanner Springs park in the NW part of Portland, if anyone cares. I wrote a paper about this project, so it would have made sense to take location shots, but I was too excited to just be wearing a maxi skirt :)

Also, this post was sort of for EBEW. If you don't know what that is, I suggest clicking the little button below because it's pretty awesome. I love blogging--it's given me so many ideas and has challenged myself to look more closely at how I get dressed and shop.
