It's Maxi Time

 I can't believe it is Sunday today and less than a week away from Thanksgiving!! The holidays seemed to have sprung up on me this year faster than ever. (despite Thanksgiving being later.) It must be all the work I have hehe. This Friday, I got to skip school to go on a college visit of Uconn. (University of Connecticut) Unfortunately it was raining, but I still managed to take a few photos which I will share with you guys in my next post after I get them uploaded and organized! I have to say though that the college was a lot different than I expected. I expected it to be boring and farm like, but it was the opposite. If I do go there for the next 4 years, I'm sure I will love it even though it's not in the city =) I'll also love graduating there without drowning in loans hehe. 

Despite it being the coldest day ever today, I decided to wear this outfit. It is very cute and as long as you are inside, you won't freeze! I've being trying to organize/clean my clothes... in fact my whole house... and I keep coming across cute summer clothes and ohh how I wish I could wear them now! I love summer for the cute clothes and freedom from school, but I love winter for the snow and holidays! I just can't stand freezing temperatures and looking like a snowman under my coats!

How To Wear A Maxi Skirt

How To Wear A Maxi Skirt

This maxi skirt is super comfortable and very sophisticated looking. It's white with black stripes. The fabric that this skirt is made from is super soft. Most maxi skirts I have come across are made from a chiffon type material and while they are still cute, chiffon is a bit uncomfortable and I am always afraid of ripping it. This skirt here is made from a cotton like material and is quite stretchy. It's also the perfect length for me!

Along with the maxi skirt, I chose to wear a black long sleeve top. Just like the skirt, this top is super soft and stretchy and even though the material is thin, it keeps me pretty warm! 

Bow Ring
Apt 9 Flip Flops
For my jewelry , I wore two rings- A band and a bow ring. I really love the way the bow ring looks. I had to do some retouching on my nail polish as you may notice. I painted them for senior portraits and despite the top coat, they chipped in 2 days. It happens all the time to me probably because I am rough with my hands and I tend to bite my nails when I am bored. (trying to fix this habit!) 
The shoes I wore are a pair of cute flip flops from Apt. 9. They are simple black flip flops with a set of sparkling crystals in front.

A lot is going on this week for me including a cross country banquet, shopping for coach's gift, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and college applications due! I'm going to be very busy, however with only 2 and a half days of school, I can't complain! 

Skirt- Modcloth
Flop Flops- Kohls

Are you a fan of maxi skirts?
How excited are you for Thanksgiving and Black Friday?? =)
