Back in the day, this would have been called “a long skirt.” We had minis, but we didn’t have maxis, per se. The long skirt has been rebranded. And look out—the midi (aka the mid-length skirt) is supposed to be big for fall.
Skirt: Forever 21
Shades: Convenience store
I threw on this maxi skirt (so much more put together than pajamas, but just as comfortable) to enjoy the last of the sunny days before the nine-month rainy season hits.
I don’t mind the rain though. It’s good for the gardens. Plus, with all that cloud cover I don’t need to be as diligent with the sunscreen. I still wear SPF every day, even in winter. It’s important for healthy skin to not get too much sun. I’m kind of proud of how I retained my
pasty alabaster hue all summer long. I do have faint tan lines on the tops of my feet from my sandal straps. Doh! I don’t like tans, but I especially hate tan lines.
This outfit comes in at just over $90, which qualifies it as thrifty. If you recognize the skirt, it’s because it was part of my original 30 for 30 when I first tried the challenge back in January.
