Pretty, Polished, Perfect.: When I Say Maxi

When I Say Maxi

Don't say pad.  Am I the only one who wishes we weren't calling them maxis?  I am?

It's hot.  Beyond hot.  I try to wear as little as possible.  I put a maxi dress on over my swimsuit the other day, took two steps and stepped back out of it.  I swear the visualization of me walking outside in that long skirt started to make me sweat!  Why am I telling you this?  It's just my way of justifying why today's Bloggers Do It Better is a recap of some of my favorite maxis (read: old photos, recycled.*)  I also want to point out that these photos were some of the very first posts on my blog.  I'd like to think I've come a long way since those first days.......




Aside from being named "maxi", I do love these skirts.  They are great for hiding pale legs, hairy legs, big bruises, cellulite, bags of candy, knives........and of course they are great when you don't have anything to hide either.  You know I was just kidding about the knives, right?  I've got maxis in sequins and silk, chiffon, satin, knit, more knits and cotton.  I love them.  Long live the maxi!  Although I wouldn't mind a name change :)

I didn't own a maxi skirt until the #BDIB challenge. I prefer knee length skirt and mini-skirts because I love showing my legs. But the reasons you listed in your post are soo true. I do need to add a couple more to my wardrobe. I am really inspired by your sequin maxi...it's a show stopper.

If only our legs looked perfect 100% of the time, right? And you can fully expect to see me wearing that sequin skirt at the rip old age of 76.......I will love and cherish that skirt FOREVER!

I've worn that striped one at least five times this past spring. I fully intend to wear it at least that much if not more in the fall!

I swear to God, I thought I was the only one on the planet who hated calling these maxis!!! Doesn't such a refined piece of clothing deserve a more dignified name? For real! I love the striped skirt the best!

So glad I am not the only one, lol! If I am going by poll alone, I think the stripe skirt is winning.....

Haha I totally agree about calling them maxis! I think that's the reason I don't own one. But they are cute and have many uses as you point out :) I really like the striped one.

Yes! I think the striped one is definitely my most favorite. Would it be wrong to wear it twice a week, lol?

It is hot! The humidity is killing me - at least, it's killing my hair......

Let's start a new trend - we could call them Maximums. Or Long Skirts. Haha.
