Oufit Post: Maxi-mum Comfort

It's another gorgeous spring day here in Northern Virginia.  Of course, I got all excited and checked the weekend temperatures for when  Jayme and family come to visit us and the Cherry Blossom Festival happens, and....rain and high 40s/low 50s.  Super.  Really fun to go out and do stuff.  That really grinds my gears.

I was excited to show off my new daniBlack platforms.  They were the only not-really-comfortable things about this outfit.  I have to break them in a little, build up those sandal callouses.  But the rest of the outfit is my new everyday spring uniform:  flowy tops and bottoms with structured jackets/blazers.  And of course, platforms whenever I can.

jacket-UO, lacy top-?, maxi dress worn as skirt-Old Navy, platforms-daniBlack
my new crush.
I just realized I'm not wearing anything vintage, though every piece has a distinctly vintage feel to it (the jacket is from UO's Urban Renewal line, so it may, in fact, be vintage...).  I must say, I am loving the maxi skirt and dress look for spring.  And no: not just because it means I have to shave less of my legs.  Or because it will hide my cellulite. (Though those are definite perks.) I just love the bohemian, 70s vibe.

Enjoy the sun while it lasts!  Sigh.
