Friday's Fancies

4.5.12

This week's Friday's Fancies at {long distance loving} presented us with a choice: do we want to go preppy chic for the Kentucky Derby or casual yet festive for Cinco de Mayo? Although I love seeing the preppy dresses and pretty hats for the Derby, a Cinco de Mayo party is much more likely in my near future, so that's the theme I decided to go with! I used to stay away from anything with the word "maxi" in it, as I was convinced that it was super cute on everyone else and completely unflattering on myself. But lately, I've been loving the idea of comfy maxi skirts, and after buying one recently, I hope to find some more in pretty colors to add to my summer wardrobe. At any rate, with the crochet top, simple gold jewelry, and cross-body bag, this look is perfect for a backyard party.

Thoughts on the maxi skirt? Love it or leave it? Admittedly, putting this look together made me wish I actually had Cinco de Mayo plans so that I could have an excuse to wear a similar outfit.. hopefully I can celebrate with margaritas and guacamole at some point this weekend! Happy Friday lovelies! xo
