Fashion // Embrace the Mess

Maxi skirts make me feel like a princess. This gorgeous, cranberry chiffon one is a couple years old. I wore it when I visited Paris a couple years ago and now it always reminds me of that magical trip. I wore this outfit on May Day, just strolling around town with my sister, shopping and enjoying the sun. It’s been an amazing spring so far!

My sister and I have been celebrating May Day every year for the past few years because of some obsession with paganism. Sometimes we go for a picnic or visit a museum, or do something simple like visit the New York Botanical Gardens (across the street from my alma mater, Fordham University). It’s really an opportunity to celebrate spring and pretend we’re cooler than we are. (Is paganism cool?) Anyway—

What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. – Nora Ephron

  • Lovely look, and I like how you pinned the bag to the clothesline! haha. Sadly, I feel like I can’t really pull off maxi skirts/dresses as I’m very short! I do love a good all-over print, though.

    • Haha, I was hoping no one would notice the mess of my porch! I also love printed maxis, but dresses more than skirts!

  • Thanks for checking out my blog. Really love your blog and really cute outfit.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I also really like your blog and I’m glad we’ve connected!

  • I love the color of the skirt, and how you combine it with that nice Little top! What about the bag I can see on the first pic? Why is it hiding?

    • Haha, that’s actually just the junk on my porch I forgot to clear before taking photos. Whoops!

      • Haha 🙂 it fits pretty well in the pic

  • I love a good chiffon skirt! They are so fun and breezy. I have nominated you for a Liebster Award. Check it out here:

    • Thank you so much for the nomination! I’ve already been nominated and did my Liebster nominees a few weeks ago, but I would love to answer your questions! Thanks again 🙂
