let me be honest, i have always sort of cringed when walking by "maxi" skirts in department stores - i dont know if it is because i have this vivid mental image of my mom in an olive green floor-length crinkly skirt that at 12 years old i deemed hideous. actually, i still think its quite ugly but whatever - my attention has been shifted to the newest MAXI trend: the maxi skirt.

these skirts are adorable and perfect for the summer-to-fall transition! i was lucky enough to snag a black column from LF and cannot wait to wear it with a cropped tank. i know, i know - how am i, at 5'barely3", going to wear a skirt that is 4' long? - well the answer is heels, heels, HEELS and belting the skirt at my waist which makes crop tops even more appealing!

regardless of height - i recommend, highly recommend, investing in one of these sheaths. here are a few looks straight off the runway!
