maxi skirts are my leggings

Unless I'm wearing a shirt long enough to cover my bum, I won't wear leggings out in public. Call me pretentious, I just won't. I will, however, wear maxi skirts. And I'll feel just as good as better than if I were wearing leggings. Although today I wasn't feeling as good as I could have-- I caught some sort of bug this week and it's only been getting worse as the week has gone on. Hopefully I'll be able to kick it this weekend. I would love that. (ha ha)

  1. I feel the same way about legging. I have cute pair that I got last year but haven't worn them yet. Due to I haven't find a shirt long enough yet. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. I only wear leggings instead of tights during the winter when it's cold and I want a warmer layer. I love the belt with this. Hope you are feeling better soon and you get to enjoy the weekend a bit!

  3. I actually think maxi skirts are MORE comfortable than leggings! You look great...especially considering you don't feel well. I don't feel great either so I'm hoping to just relax a lot this weekend. Feel better soon!

  4. You always look great in a maxi so I am 100% with you.

    Have a Great Holiday Weekend, Kate!!

  5. Um yes, I see maxi skirts as leggings or yoga pants that you can wear to work. I've worn mine a lot lately just to be as comfy as possible!

  6. Great look! I love statement ts with skirts. This outfit could also transition into fall wiht a jacket and booties. So cute

    please stop by, jess

  7. I totally agree about not wearing leggings unless you have a long enough shirt. Leggings aren't pants! That maxi skirt is much more chic anyway ;).


  8. Oooh I like this philosophy! I try not to wear leggins without a long shirt in public either. Not cute. But I do love maxi skirts. I actually always talk about how much I'd rather wear skirts than pants in general. So much more comfortable!

  9. I hope you're feeling better!! And I'm the same way, no leggings in public. At all for me actually, because I don't really have any shirts long enough to make me feel comfortable.

  10. Haha! I always say that maxi skirts/dresses are the socially acceptable version of wearing PJs in public :) I love this outfit--that glitter belt makes for the perfect pop of fun!

  11. very cool outfit!

  12. I see what you did there! LOVE! And I won't be calling you pretentious, because I have the same rule. Leggings are for wearing under skirts and dresses in the frigid winters. Not as pants. Anyway, I hope you are feeling better!
