Happy Friday!!! You guys are gonna laugh…do you know I didn’t even realize that this was Labor Day weekend until yesterday afternoon? Crazy right? I have so much going on at work, and I’m going on vacay next week, so I was writing out my plan for getting everything done by next Tuesday…and then I realized…OMG! Monday is a holiday. Normally, that would be a gift, but ummm, as I look at my to do list, I’m feeling like it’s a gift and a curse. Lol. Oh well…things always get done.

Anyway, this week’s Style Me Friday was kinda tough for me. I am realizing that I don’t love maxi skirts…anymore. I used to LOVE them with a capital L, and I own quite a few of them, but I haven’t worn a single maxi skirt all summer long…and I had a hard time putting together a look that I really loved for this week’s link up…I guess right now I’m just not that into them. Lol. I’m holding on to them, though. I’m sure my finicky fashion sensibilities will be back on #TeamMaxi sooner or later.
Originally, I’d planned on recreating the jean jacket + pleated maxi skirt look as seen on Atlantic Pacific in this week’s inspiration collage, buuuuuut I put it on and I felt like I was wearing a cowgirl costume. So, I tossed on my new favorite sweater instead. I really love the juxtaposition of the breezy maxi and the chunky knit. It’s a perfect look for transitioning to fall! Actually, it just dawned on me…I think I prefer maxi skirts styled for fall. Like, I’m really feeling this chunky sweater and maxi look….and if I could have my way with the weather, I would have loved to do a leather moto and maxi look. So, maybe that’s it. I’m just not that into maxi skirts for summer. I’m such a weirdo! Lol. I’ll stop rambling now…
