I went to pick apples today with my boys. It is just stunningly beautiful outside: 75 degrees, slightly breezy, not a cloud in the sky, perfect. We went to church beforehand and I didn’t want to wear my church clothes to the farm. We ran home quickly to pack a lunch and change. I was standing there in my closet and not sure what to do. Too chilly for shorts, too warm for jeans… hmmm… Then I spotted it. My long, bright blue maxi skirt I bought at the Gap two years ago. Perfect for holding my children, running through a dirt farm, and sitting cross-legged in the grass.
After a successful trip and a haul of apples (which we ended up buying instead of picking – you try getting my 3-year-old off that tractor to pick apples. He has a COW. His only priority is that tractor ride, forget the apples!), I have a new-found love for this old skirt. It set me out on the hunt for a few fall maxi’s. Here’s what I found:
I am really loving this floral print. I ordinarily would feel that this is a spring skirt, but I think that if paired with burgundy and dark brown booties, it could easily be a fall piece. How cute is it with this cropped top? I am not now, nor do I ever think I will wear be a person who can wear a cropped shirt. But when I was 9 I said I’d never wear boot cut jeans…then the late 90′s happened. Never say never.
I adore pale pink. It’s fall, it’s spring, it’s summer, it’s winter, it’s perfect. Pair this skirt with charcoal anything and it’s a win. Plus, the pleats make it fall nicely on almost all shapes and sizes. I’m not wild about the price point, but Piperlime does decent 20% off promotions from time to time. This one might be worth the wait.
Oh my gosh, next month we get an H&M! Yes!!! I love this skirt and I LOVE the price! Are you kidding me?! It comes in five colors (I really like it in purple too), and I’ll take one of each! There are endless possibilities, but I think a simple white tank with a navy blazer on top would be my go-to move. Maybe sparkly flats to finish the outfit off?
What about you? Have you seen any cute Maxi’s recently?
