To Maxi or Not to Maxi?

Is my post title awkward? Because when I brought up "maxi skirts" at school, one of my male students said he hates that word because all he can think about is a maxi pad. Gotta love teaching high school!

Anyway, the real question is whether or not maxi skirts are meant for me. I have tried on a few here and there and because my hips are a totally different proportion from my waist (yay pear-shaped!), I have not had any luck. But this one I felt I could pull off. When I got home and tried it on again, I had second thoughts. For awhile, I thought I would return it. Once I got the coral tee, I thought "What the heck?" and wore it to school. I felt very comfortable, but I'm still on the fence. It's a bit intimidating leaving the question out to all of you, but there are some really stylish and wonderful readers out there whose opinions I would value!

On another note, I feel like things have kind of slowed down on the blog front since the Pantone challenge. I've posted, but I haven't had my whole heart into everything because life has been absolutely crazy. With the end of the school year on its way and all of the senior activities going on, it is crunch time. All of you teachers out there, how are you balancing everything at this time of the year?

Hope you are all having a good start to your week! I'll be sharing the dress I wore to chaperone prom soon!
