I have official decided that the maxi skirt is really just a somewhat dressier substitute for sweatpants. It is comfy, goes perfect with a tank top or t-shirt, and looks good with flip flops. What is not to love about that?
Next time you really just want to throw on sweatpants to run an errand (or in my case, go to work or on a date) try a maxi skirt instead. You will achieve the same level of comfort, but look a whole lot better... more put together.
