BDIB: Maxi Skirt

Shirt:  Gap, thrifted
Skirt:  Vintage, thrifted via Valu Thrift
Shoes:  MIA2 via Kohl's?

Pretend for a sec that this skirt is not thick polyester from the 70's that still has a lingering scent of the thrift store.  Pretend it's soft cotton or breezy linen and it smells like sunshine and beach.  Pretend also that I am wearing a straw hat and balancing fruit on my head.  Chiquita Banana much? 

Now let's imagine that this skirt possesses special powers and will magically transport me to a tropical location of my choice.  First stop:  Disney's private island in the Bahamas.  Boy-oh-boy am I itchin' for a cruise.  A Disney Cruise.  Grab hold of the skirt and maybe you can join me on my delusional vacation!

Lol, love the chevron stripes. I'm sure it would be way more comfy if it was cotton =)

That's a gorgeous skirt and you wear it beautifully.
I wanted to steal it but then I read polyester and thrift smell. Then it kind of lost its charm !

Great way to wear a skirt! I often struggle with exactly where the hem of the shirt should be.
I recently bought a polyester India style top and forgot just how hot it can be!
