Maxi skirts and dresses seem to be a lingering fashion trend (experts, correct me if I'm wrong!), which is great since I've been wearing maxi dresses since college. Recently I've noticed them in heavier fabrics which make them perfect for fall layering. When I wear a long skirt I feel as comfy as I do in pajamas but it looks like I put a bit of effort into getting dressed, which is always good.
This teal maxi skirt outfit is what I wore back in September when we went out for my birthday dinner
. I was comfortable all night, warm enough with my layers and, best of all, I had no annoying waistband digging into my stomach while I stuffed myself with a delicious pulled pork sandwich.

|knee socks were awesome under this dress because they kept my legs warm without added bulk to my waist like tights would have.|

I'm really liking this outfit combo and will probably be wearing a variation of this repeatedly over fall and winter!! Can I talk about my booties for a second? I got them in fall 2011 and think they are so cute. They aren't the best quality and I have to keep them laced loosely or else they hurt my wide feet but they look great! David calls them my Little Bo Peep boots, haha:)
