Hello my gorgeous friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was pretty busy with back-to-back photo shoots, but those always tend to be my favorite days. Yesterday, I met up with Angela of Head-to-To Chic and Lindsey and Tiffany of Baubles & Backdrops to take pictures, followed by a little happy hour.
I’m always in awe with what wonderful company I keep in the blogging community. If you would have told me in High School that one day I’d be interacting with female peers who would encourage me with my passions, I’d have SMH, rolled my eyes and called you a liar. This may be a bit off topic from discussing my sweet skirt (I promise, I’ll get there), but I think it’s important to point out because I think, as women, we’re really getting somewhere. I understand that social media has its qualms, but I also think it has given women an amazing creative outlet (because we really do have amazing, creative minds) and a great way to share our ideas.
Speaking of social media qualms, the others that come to mind are the idea of physical perfection and that everyone’s life is way better than yours. One of my first rules when I began blogging was to not compare myself to others. Now, it’s a rule that I follow in almost every area of my life (work, love life, weight, etc). I’ve just accepted that there are some things other people will have better than me and vice versa. I’ve also learned that it’s better (for your own sanity) to be happy for other people than feel sorry for yourself.
Now, let’s discuss this ensemble, shall we? Maxi skirts and dresses are my go-to pieces for any transitional wardrobe (spring/summer, summer/fall). They’re super easy to layer and tend to go on sale this time of year. I always try to snag a couple to wear during transitional months because their both stylish and simple. This wrap maxi skirt from Banana Republic was too unique to pass up! I was also excited to give some love to my plain white tee. Often times, I’ll over-think when I’m matching separates and sometimes, less really is more!
