Colors of the Wind

Man it has been crazy windy in the city lately; walking through the financial district a few days ago was a task! Whenever it is windy, you can always count on me wearing the worst outfit for the weather. If there is a hat to be worn, or a short skirt, I will be wearing it. At least the other day, when these were taken, I wore a maxi-skirt. Leaves little chance for an accidental peep-show.
This skirt and I have quite the history, by the way. I bought it on super sale at Madewell, and thought it to be quite the steal. At home, I showed it to Kyle, and noticed a huge tear in the seam by the hem. Thinking it would be an easy fix, I sewed it right up. Admittedly, I didn't want to return it since there weren't anymore of my size, and I thought the problem was solved. The next time I wore it, I tore through my repairs in a second. Why? Because it was so tight around the hem! After taking it to a tailor, getting the tear repaired, and having a slit put in, this skirt is now wearable. So much more effort than it was worth, but it is a lovely maxi, and I couldn't imagine not owning it at this point.
