M.I.M. (Mom in Maxi Skirt)

My love for maxi dresses in summer is a well-known fact but for some reason, I scoffed at the idea of a maxi skirt even though the fashionable ladies of Ain't No Mom Jeans keep featuring them as viable options for busy moms.  That might have been because I didn't have a maxi skirt...until recently.  Lo and behold on a recent drive-by of the skirts at VV Boutique, I found a maxi skirt in great neutral colours, flattering stripes and great fabric that will leave all I got going on underneath to the imagination, where it belongs.

Pool noodle and hose are part of my glamour shoot.

Now, ANMJ depicts the maxi skirt in action at the beach, at the park, at festivals, running errands - doing everything we moms need to do in a day.  So, I figured I would give my maxi skirt a mom test drive.  I wore it while friends came over, to the grocery store, to clean up fifty thousand messes during the day, and to play...
Yeah, I have a pink basketball, what of it?

It was a warm humid day so I wanted something sleeveless and decided a fitted top was better balanced with the maxi.  And, er, this was basically my only clean option. 
Er, seems a little busty now that I see it in a photo, so I will explain.
I was sucking in, apparently excessively.

A little arm party never hurt an ordinary Thursday.

Upon further examination of the ANMJ inspiration, maxi skirts are almost always paired with looser tops.  Oops.  Next time.  I will happily report that the maxi skirt was indeed comfortable and easy to wear throughout my day.
And I made the shot!
