I've been eyeing maxi skirts for awhile now, but I hadn't quite taken the plunge. Then, recently, I found two skirts that were basically perfect for me at Target. Total price: under $50. I've become a little obsessed. You can do so much with them. And I love that I can wear a skirt and still bend over to pick Eloise up without feeling awkward. Also, is it sad that they kind of make me feel casually glamourous? Flowing skirt, sunny skies. There's just something about it.
I love that this skirt can be worn high on the waist or slung on the hips (Oh, and please ignore dirty room in background).
Here's a similar one, but mine was only $17 in the store....
(I'd consider giving my left foot for this one from Anthro last year. Just kidding.)
