A Pretty Pleated Skirt

5/06/2014


I don't know about you, but when the weather warms I'm always wanting to grab a dress or a pretty light skirt to wear, rather than shorts. They are just so airy and flowing and well...classy. Though, if I am being completely honest, this rarely happens, because in the two minutes that I have on the dress or skirt it is promptly covered in mud ("But Mommy, it's a birthday mud cake for Gorbie...it's his birthday!") Or smashed peas/avocados/cheese/turkey/applesauce (most likely a combination of all five, courtesy of Sir Chunks a Lot, aka Baby Phoenix). Or...well anyway you get the drift. I hate to see a pretty skirt ruined.

But look. Sometimes Mommy wants to feel a little lovely...what with Mother's Day on the horizon. So you can bet that I will be wearing this to a brunch or lunch or picnic or whatever we decide to do that day, and I will feel damn beautiful...until it's covered in grass stains and dirt and food remnants. Sigh. But hey...at least we will know that it is well loved. ;)

I have a few maxi skirts that I love because they feel effortless (jersey material always makes them feel like pajamas) but inevitably you look chic and cool. Love this one on you! xo

I love it -- and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that it stays stain free!

Love it! You look so lovely! I'm like you, I prefer long flowy skirts and dresses to shorts in the summer.
