It's finally warm enough to wear skirts. Can I get a "Hallelujah!!!"
(Everyone who just arrived on my blog from California just decided I was a freak and high-tailed it outta here. Everyone who is reading from the Midwest just hollered, "Amen sistah!!!")
So here's what happened. While Evan was in China, my mother stayed with me quite a bit to watch the kids for me while I was at work. Micah and I popped into TJ Maxx one day to find a little thank you gift for her and the strangest thing took place.
A teal maxi skirt literally jumped off the rack and attacked me, shrieking "Try me on!! I'm perfect!!!"
Skirt - TJ Maxx, Teal top - Maurice's, Necklace - Lisa Leonard Designs, Shoes - Payless
And when a possessed skirt jumps in your path friends, you buy it. Especially when it is marked down from $75 to $24.99. Yup, you betcha.
And then you wear it with pretty much every solid colored top you can find in your wardrobe.
White t shirt - Target, Necklace - Stitch Fix, Feet - God's handiwork
I seriously lived in this skirt for a solid week. I washed it, dried it, and put it right back on.
Grey T Shirt - Old Navy, Wedge Sandals - Payless
Due to my terrible body position in the photo above, I look like I have a baby bump. I am not, repeat, I am NOT pregnant.
Teal tank - Old Navy, Jacket - Target
Yup, the teal maxi skirt totally stole my heart that day. And of course I found my mother a suitable gift. Just ask her - the wire basket with a chicken on it plus the flavored olive oil and gardening gloves were a win. But still, maxi skirt for the win.
Has anyone else struck wardrobe gold recently? Have you ever had an inanimate object like a skirt leap off a rack at you and demand you purchase it? Must just be me then.....
