Yesterday was beautiful! It was the first sunny day that actually felt warm. Ben and I decided that we needed to get out and take advantage of the bright sun, warm temps, and blue sky. We packed up our picnic gear, stopped by the grocery store, then headed to a nearby park for the afternoon. It was glorious. We ate lots of tasty food (red peppers, tomato, salami, creamy french cheese, strawberries), did some reading, and also snuck in a nap:)
I recently picked up this maxi skirt at Anthro. This is my very first maxi skirt/dress (ever)! I have been wanting to give the maxi trend a try and when I saw the seamingly maxi, I knew it was the one:) I love the purple stripes and "swingy godets" (anthro's description) at the bottom of the skirt. The purple motif is no longer available online, but there are still some floating around stores.
I'm reading Stolen Lives by Malika Oufkir right now. I'm only about 80 pages into it, but so far, so good. I love memoirs and I'm really enjoying this one.
Skirt: Anthropologie Seaminly Maxi
Throwing on this cute little top was perfect for a picnic, but I really have no idea how to style this skirt. Like I mentioned, this is my first ever maxi skirt and I really don't own a lot of stripes. Help! Please share some tips/ideas with me on how to style this lovely skirt. Should I go with a long top and then belt my waist? Maybe tuck in a simple tank top and throw a cardi on top? Would a more structured top in a solid color work?
Hope your weekend was fabulous!
