Of Maxis and Modesty

Maxi Skirts
     It is officially summer and the high temperatures are here again. I received a request for maxi skirt ideas, so here we go! Maxi skirts are some of my favorite skirts to wear, simply because they are a modest option,  versatile, and unbelievably comfortable. Three birds with one stone guys. And they are e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e! I am positive you will have no trouble finding one. In the picture above, I've created three possible outfit ideas. I recommend wearing loose fitting tops and an open toed shoe. Depending on the style of your maxi, you can mix and match patterns and accessories, creating a fun and smashing outfit. 
    And maxi skirts aren't just for the tall and long legged! I find that the more petite often think they can't wear maxi skirts, but I beg to differ. I'm 5'1" and know plenty of short folk that rock the maxis! It is simply a matter of finding the right one for you. I know what it's like to find a skirt or dress that's too long and trying to find a way to make it work. Folding the top over, hemming the bottom, wearing a taller heel, you get the idea. 

My current summer challenge? Finding modest tops that are light enough to wear during the next couple months. I am having the hardest time, y'all. I have been clearing racks and racks of clothes looking for tops and dresses that would work for me. Layering is not an option, and my closet is still overflowing with fall/winter's sweaters and blazers. Next stop, thrift stores! How are you staying cool this summer? Any ideas to share?

I am so glad Monday is over.
