I don’t think I’ve come down off of my 3 day weekend high just yet. Why do they tease us like that? LOL! My 4th of July weekend was a great one and I hope you all enjoyed yours as well. I finally got a chance to see one of my best friends whom I haven’t seen in way too long since she moved to Jacksonville. We met up with our other bestie for lunch to hangout, laugh and just really enjoy each other’s company. I love days like that! Summer is in full swing in Atlanta now which means 90 degree temperatures, but since we met early we were able to enjoy the patio at the restaurant without cooking out there.
For my outfit that day, I decided to channel my inner gypsy and create a Modern Gypsy look. I recently bought a printed maxi skirt from TJ Maxx that I couldn’t wait to wear and saw this as the perfect opportunity to break it out. I love the print of the skirt and really like that is has 2 slits on either side to create the laid back vibe I was feeling that weekend. By the way, I realize that 90 degree temperatures don’t necessarily go with a printed maxi skirt, but this one is SUPER light! That’s the only way to go if you plan on rocking a maxi anything in the summer. With the print of the skirt being so busy, I decided to keep it simple with the top by just wearing a white tank. I paired the skirt and tank with my favorite pair of flat sandals (the heels were only used for the style photos), my new Ellington handbag and I was on my way!
Here’s my look:

Such a breezy and comfortable skirt! A printed skirt is just the thing for creating a fabulous Modern Gypsy look!
Do any of you own a printed maxi skirt?
Until next time!
