works cited: secondhand sweater; thrifted skirt and belt; target boots; both bracelets gifts from friends
I found this maxi skirt on an expedition with Emily a few months ago and while I really like it, I've been a little nervous about how to pull it off. If I wear it at my waist, it's just a little short at the bottom, a length I fear makes it fall within the range of What I'd Wear for an Oregon Trail Pilgrimage or possibly Are You Visiting 19 Kids and Counting? So today I just tugged the skirt down to give it extra length, and just to mix things up (har har), belted at the waist. It seems fitting to celebrate a blog anniversary by wearing something I might have balked at a year or two ago (long skirt) with something that's been a staple in an embarrassingly huge number of outfits (belt). And speaking of celebrating, I'm just two fat portfolios away from a finishing a big stack of grading. Hip hip hooray!
