Summer Stripes

It's official. I'm obsessed with maxi skirts and dresses. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

{Denim Jacket: Nordstrom (old), Shirt: H&M (old), Maxi Skirt: Pipley Vintage, Sandals: Zara (old), Necklace: c/o Glam Grab, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman}

Remember the other day I talked about finding a maxi dress that fit perfectly? Well, I also picked up this little number from PipLey Vintage at the same time. Another one that fits me perfectly and I'm just filled with excitement. I really love wearing maxi skirts/dresses because not only is it comfortable, but I don't have to be worry about my legs looking gross or pants sticking to my legs in the summer humidity. Don't forget to enter my PipLey Vintage giveaway!

And now time for this week's Friday Love-It Notes:

1. A long weekend means a short week. Why can't every week be like this?

2. Mango smoothies. My favorite flavor of smoothies. When I go somewhere and it's available, I always get it. It's so refreshing and delicious! What's your favorite flavor?

3. Arancini. For those of you who don't know, it's basically a fried risotto ball. My sister-in-law introduced me to this yummy appetizer a few days and ago and now I'm addicted. I just want more. I want more, I want more... just like that AT&T commercial.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Right? Why can't we always have Monday off? We all work super hard to catch up for that extra day off so we totally get more done! Right? Sigh, if only.

Great maxi skirt! I am addicted to wearing maxi skirts/dresses in the summer too - just no fuss! Mango is my favorite fruit. Before my hubby met me, he never had mango - he never realized there's so much more fruit besides the good old standards like strawberries & oranges.

Simply Evani said...

LOL okay first of all, I love that you referenced that AT&T commercial, that made my day. Secondly, you look great in a maxi! I'm still figuring how to style mine right, I still have some heaviness in my mid section which is hard to hide in a maxi but good god are they comfortable. And that appetizer sounds TASTY, food in general sounds tasty. Lolllll

two birds said...

i love all three of those things! i was just thinking about mango smoothies...so yummy! and i love this skirt, it's so cute. and your necklace is so pretty, too!

I absolutely love a good maxi dress or skirt!

Gina said...

This maxi skirt is perfect. I love it!
I have become a little obsesses with maxi skirts and dresses this season too, and they are fabulous if we run out of time to make sure the legs don't look gross (love how you phrased that).
About the smoothies, I make one with frozen banana, almond milk, peanut butter, honey and cinnamon that I love!
Happy weekend, Yi-chia

That Maxi Skirt is so pretty. I love the subtle color & stripe print. You can never wear too many stripes. I especially loved your Gorgeous Maxi Dress from yesterday.

And even-though I don't comment often because there is just 24 hours in the day and first and foremost I am a Mom, I check out your blog & your outfits often. I adore your style. I have even featured a couple of your looks in my blog, before.

Have a Great Weekend, Yi-Chia. =)

So cute :) I wish I looked good in maxi dresses/skirts. I feel they're not very flattering (they're more..."Fattering" on me :p) And I just love mango smoothies too!

I think Maxi's are great too! So universal and comfy. I'll probably be using them all summer long. And the best part is they can be used as a beach cover up. Great outfit Maylee!!

Ricademus said...

That's a pretty skirt--and sort of geometric, in a way.

I haven't had a smoothie in so long I don't remember my favorite flavor--but mango sounds good. I've never tried arancini--haven't heard of it on any of the cooking shows either. I need to try it, just hope I can find a good version of it here. I can't count the number of times I've tried something new and thought I didn't like it, when really I just didn't like the way that particular restaurant made it. Live and learn! :)

Enjoy the weekend--I hope it feels like a long one.

emily | shell chicd said...

Pretty girl! I am becoming more and more obsessed with maxis. I don't even care that I have to shorten most of them-- it's worth it for how comfy they are! Love this one!

Another maxi! Love this look on you Yi-chia! I've been searching for more maxis since they're such an easy wear for the spring and summer, but I've been having no luck finding anything good. Any suggestions on where I could shop in-stores for a great maxi?

I have one maxi. I need to invest in more. It gets do hot here but the humidity is the worse. This way you can just go stand over a vent and cool off quickly.

These two maxi looks you've done are great! As you noted, it can be tough for petite women to pull off the look! At 5'1'' I feel your pain! But you've made this look totally work for you!
