Springtime - FTF Blog Event

Friday, May 06, 2011

This month's Full Time Fabulous theme is about spring! New beginnings, warmer weather, flowers -- I did a combination of all. It was a beautiful day this past weekend so I decided to take some shots with the blossoming trees in front & back of my house.

I also wore a maxi skirt (this is just my 2nd time wearing it)! Before, I've always thought that I was too short to be wearing a maxi, let alone finding one that fits my height. After reading some blogs and fashion articles, I realized that maxis can actually look good & even make people look taller (like Rachel Zoe). Plus, it feels so comfortable!

That maxi skirt really suits you!It's very nice!
I am also short ant that's mainly the reason I don't wear maxi skirts (but it is also that I've never found an exceptional one!!)

You are too cute! I say that you can rock a maxi skirt, no matter how tall you are (that's why they created platform heels!). Nice post and cute outfit :)

you look beautiful! I never knew that a maxi skirt could lengthen your look. That's quite interesting. :) I love your skirt the patterns are great.

Gotta love a maxi skirt! I've got three now but never really wore them much, thinking they wouldn't flatter me since I'm not particularly tall, my legs are rather short, etc. But I've found they really do give every shape a marvelous silhouette, as you so perfectly proved with this post. Lovely!
