This is an easy and fun one for me: Pretty Shiny Sparkly is doing a Bloggers Do It Better Challenge, and it’s maxi skirts! I used to wear them in the 60’s and 70’s, all polyester and abstract, with big sashes at the waist. I also loved “granny” skirts, the Laura Ashley look with pretty floral prints, worn with a peasant blouse off the shoulder, and thong sandals. Just add a daisy in my hair and some Crosby, Stills, and Nash on the turntable.

Now I dress up my maxi skirts, and keep everything a little more sleek and simple. I still love the look and feel of a long skirt sweeping against my legs all day. I wear either wedges or flats with my maxis, and I like both looks. Today it was my sparkly Ralph Lauren flats and I was super comfortable zipping around the office.
This blouse is one of my favorites. It has a cord running through it at hip level, so you can make it blousy or leave it straight. Or sometimes I tuck it into a skirt and it’s a whole different look. But I don’t remember the maker, and I cut out the tags long ago.

I solved my over-heating problem by . . . taking pictures inside! I hope no one is offended by the nude painting over my head. This is our “guest” room, and my closet/dressing/etc. room, and it has the best light in the house.
Are you a fan of maxi skirts too? Happy Friday to all.
