When my parents moved last summer, I went home for a week and helped them pack up the house. I also cleaned out my childhood room and gave away a lot of my clothes that had been sitting there unworn throughout undergrad and law school. I saved this sort of odd maxi skirt from the giveaway pile, though. I think I bought it in 8th grade to wear to a dance or something, but I don't think I even wore it. Maxi skirts are definitely back in style now, but I swore when they came back on the scene that I'd never wear one. I'm not sure of my logic. Anyway, today when I went to get dressed, I saw the snake print of this skirt peeking out from beneath other clothes and I decided to give it a try. I definitely felt very outside my comfort zone wearing the skirt, but the actual outfit was very comfortable. I should have taken everyone's word for it that maxi skirts were comfortable! I wouldn't call myself a maxi skirt convert yet, but I definitely won't write them off so quickly like I did before. Do you own any maxi skirts or dresses? Are there any trends that you were against for no logical reason, and later found out you liked them?
