Maxed Out

Phew!  I can’t believe I haven’t posted in so long!  May was a particularly crazy month for me and one important thing after another came up, which unfortunately meant that I didn’t have time to post.  However, over the past couple of weeks, several exciting things have happened to me and I cannot wait to share all of it with you guys!  That stuff will be revealed in the coming weeks, but I figured I would ease back into the blogging world with good old outfit post.

and skirt- forever 21, sandals- Payless
parka- h&m
purse- tj maxx

For a long time, I resisted the maxi trend.  I just assumed there was no way it would work on short people!  However, since starting this blog, I’ve learned that many styles are worth a try, even if you don’t think they’ll work for your body type!  So I bought this maxi skirt from Forever 21, but it took me another couple of months to figure out the right outfit and to work up the nerve to wear it out of my room!  That said, I really love this outfit!  I don’t think I look short and stumpy like I feared I would and I think the accessories I chose make the skirt look young and fresh, as opposed to old and dowdy.  What do you guys think- did I pull off the maxi skirt?

Also, a couple more notes about this outfit. Say hello to my favorite spring purchase- this H&M parka!  I seriously cannot believe this is the first time it is making it into an outfit post because I’ve worn it practically nonstop since I bought it!  It is the perfect lightweight jacket and I’m so glad I purchased it in this dusty rose color (my friends had to convince me not to get the black one!) because it looks great with so many items.  Also, I realized I rarely take my outfit pictures with my purse because I use the same few purses and don’t rotate often.  This is one of my trusty crossbody purses- perfect for running errands and the like.

All right- that’s all I’ve got for now, but I want to hear from you!
Tell me: Everything I’ve missed- I need you guys to catch me up on what you’ve been up to!
Hope you all are having a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and thanks for hanging in there! =)
