I've been dying to wear this skirt since my mom bought it for me a little while back. Do you ever refuse to wear a certain item until "the perfect occasion" comes up? I can't be the only one, lol. I wore it for the first time this Sunday on the last day of my staycation. Like most maxi skirts and dresses, it's super long for me since I'm only 4'11. Normally I'd have to get it hemmed, but having to pull it up over my baby bump allowed me to skip that step (for now). I'm even looking forward to wearing it as a dress.

Here is my mom making a special appearance today! If you've been reading my blog over the years, you know I'm notorious for stealing items out of her closet - most of which I've recently returned. I have to say that my mom was the first person to make me fall in love with fashion. When I was a kid, I thought she was the most glamorous woman on Earth, lol. While I was growing up in Jamaica, she was known for throwing parties, and I would just sit and watch her get ready in the most amazing outfits. She's kept a few of her expensive sequin dresses, but she was so tiny back then - neither of us can squeeze into them now, lol. I promise those dresses are motivation for me to get in shape - I will wear them one day :)
