We FINALLY have some sunshine coming back to us, and all I can think is, “MAXI SKIRTS AND MAXI DRESSES!”

All I’ve been thinking about is a few essential maxi skirts and dresses I can wear this summer! My reasons?

  1. Maxi = better than pants!
  2. It’s less of a hassle and worry if it’s already full length vs. a medium-length skirt
  3. Maxi is a total new level of comfort that still lets you look put together
  4. It has a very feminine look while still being comfy
  5. A maxi dress is a piece that can be utilized in a million ways to make it look like a skirt, top or one piece

What are your thoughts on maxi pieces? (Short or tall, it’s worth a try!)

How gorgeous is black and sheer together?

There’s something both classic and timeless about the look of this combination because it can look dressed up or dressed down.

So far, I’ve got a brown maxi skirt (super comfy from sirens for ONLY $10!), a navy blue maxi dress (a more safe colour) with straps and a mint green (I figured colour would be good to try for the summer) from Forever 21.

In honor of Gossip Girl having aired it’s season finale, why not a post with their help as my muse?

The Cast of GG on the cover of the New York Magazine, April 2008, named as “The Best Show Ever!”

Now I haven’t watched every season, but all the buzz that goes on about it is enough to learn what the deal of it is, from the drama to the fashion. I still had enough common sense to set aside some time to sit down and watch the last episode for the hell of it.

Sometime’s it takes a show of a lifetime to see changes take place in a character, in terms of their personality, fashion and relationships with friends and family.

From the snobby uniforms in their high school years to scandalous dressy ways of the Upper East side style, it’s easy to see who’s changed in what ways. It made me think about my own transitions with my group of friends and in terms of myself.

Sometime’s appearance really is more important than we think it is. Sometime’s its not. What do you think?

I could be over-analyzing and using a really weird example for something like this, however, sometime’s it’s the hype of the media that makes us just stop and have a moment of self-realization~

Ps. I always did love seeing the way people like The Queen B dressed! It wasn’t something I could have happen in real life, but damn it was always worth watching~

So, as Gossip Girl said in the episode of “Return of the Ring“, “Good morning, Upper East Siders. How do you look today? You know image is everything. But under those perfect clothes and perfect smiles, everyone has their not-so-perfect secrets.”

It may be winter, but wearing lovely spring colours isn’t a total fashion crime when you need to life up your spirits!~

What does “affordable clothes” mean to you?

I read this quote on my Instagram by someone and agreed WHOLE HEARTEDLY!

Is this not true? Not everyone in the world can afford what they would like to have. We have budgets, some of us are students, some are just tight on finances and some of us need to learn to stop shopping all name brand all the time.

I just thought of this as today’s realization, putting-it-out-there-inspiration of the fashion world today! Afterall, we all start somewhere no?

To me, a good deal feels good when I’m not second-guessing my purchases at the counter and staring at my credit card thinking, “is this worth it?”
