Well Hey Now Maxi Skirt


We made it to Thursday!  Or at least that’s how I’m feeling this week (insert worried emoji face here).  Lou and I both got sick with colds a couple of weeks ago, and then that turned into bronchitis for both of us.  Our acupuncturist said that the emotion associated with the lungs is grief, so that’s why our bodies weren’t able to shake this little bug off the way they should have been.  Crazy, right?  I’ve never had bronchitis before, and it’s unusual to get it in the middle of the summer (and especially in the desert!), so it makes sense to me.  We’re finally getting back to normal but I feel like we’ve been in survival mode for days!  Last night we ventured out for our first date night in forever, and it was amazing to be out and about!   All of that is neither here nor there, because this is really about this amazing high-waisted maxi skirt that I ordered a few weeks back when Shopbop had their amazing sale on sale deal going on (I kind of live for those 25% off sale items days)!  I think we’re soulmates.  xx- Sarah

    yes to the skirt – u look fierce, but can we discuss your hair!? it’s SO. EFFIN. GOOD. i need to find that post you did a while back on the “not-washing” technique.

      thank you dear!!! i’m actually back to washing- just less often! i lasted probably 4-5 months and then i just got so tired of combing my long hair without conditioner and broke down! i will probably pick it up again someday. but i haven’t had my color done in a good year (maybe more) so i think that’s helping with keeping it healthy! :)

        if i didn’t have gray hair, i would definitely not color either. perhaps, i shall become a silver sister – but not JUST yet.

    question – how can short girls rock the maxi skirt/dress? (or is it one of those things that we should just shy away from?

    P.S. You look gorgeous!

    • Sarah Yates|

      Hi Kat! Oh I definitely think shorter girls can rock maxis- but I would recommend a good tall heel and a top like the one I’m wearing- preferably something sleeveless so that you’re not overwhelmed in fabric! :)

    You look fab! If I may ask, what bra (if any) are you wearing? I always have trouble with the sides of my bra showing with shirts that are cut a little lower under the arm.

    Hope you are feeling like yourself again soon!

      Thank you Keena! No bra- the shirt offers great support (because it’s a bodysuit) so the girls stay right in place! :)
      Thank you so much, we’re starting to have more moments that are normal, so that’s really good. So sweet of you to think of that! xx

        So smart to go the bodysuit route! I’ll have to check those out the next time I’m at American Apparel. Thanks for the response!

    Glad you’re finally on the mend, and looking fabulous to boot.

    This skirt IS killer and those Shopbop sales ARE the best.

    While I love looking at (and sometimes attempting) your pretty food posts, your outfit posts are my fave :)
