The Bodycon Maxi Skirt

Tank: Forever 21   Skirt: thrifted   Bag: Rue 21   Necklace: Vanity   Bandeau: Pacsun

So first off, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who left such thoughtful comments on my last post. The advise and encouragement were so wonderful to read! 
I won't lie, walking on campus in this getup made me feel especially cool and bohemian. This bodycon maxi skirt has been shown once or twice on my blog, but this is the first time I really loved it while wearing it. Hey, third times the charm, right? Nothing like an open back top and a fringe bag to really play up the carefree vibe. All I need is a floral crown to complete the look. Sigh. Anyone want to make and send me one? I'm just so lazy! 
So last night was interesting at work. You know how I've been wanting to do waitressing? One of the girls on the floor was talking to me and saying how she wanted to see me out there too. We chit chatted a bit before I went on break. While back there, my managers were discussing who they should call to cover a sick waitress's shift. All of sudden, Rich peers around the corner at me and asks, "Hey Linda, want to go out on the floor tonight?"
So I ended up working 6 to close as a waitress for my first time ever. And let me just say, I made so much more money than when I was cashiering! Yowza. $60 in three hours? Yes, please! It was nervewracking, and I worried over dropping plates and drinks all night, but I made it. Hopefully this might kick start me working as a waitress more often. 
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Congrats on getting a shot at a more rewarding job. That dress, while I dislike maxis as a concept in general, is so beautiful. What great color and cut. And that last picture of you, so happy and so lovely. Just amazing!

For some reason your new blog isn't showing up in my blogger reader, but then I realized that I need to switch it with your new URL... smart Ali is smart.

Oh man, talk about awesome that you got to do waitressing... and the money you made doesn't sound half shabby either, daaaang! I hope you keep gettin' to do some more waitressing and tons more tips, too. :) It's always nice when people decide to be generous with tips... and you're super lovely and charming, I bet, which probably helps with that! ;) <3

That skirt is so cute. I love the colors in it and how the lines are sort of watercolor-y and not perfectly horizontal, you know? GIVES IT SOME EDGE. CAUSE YOU EDGY, GIRL. YOU EDGY.

(flops passionately on your blog then flops off like a feeeesh)

Wow sounds like your customers like you! Super cute skirt and I love the bandeau peaking out from the back! xx Kat

The maxi skirt looks great on you, such a nice pattern! And good on you for doing the waitressing, sounds like you did a great job! xx

Jodie said...

Thank you for congratulating my grandparents- they really had the best day yesterday which was what it was all about. They're a massive inspiration to me couple wise, they're so in love and the perfect team, both my grandparents and patents (and aunt) got married in their early teens so I think my family are like that- it bodes well for my future :)

Nice skirt and love the top.

Aw, Linda! That skirt is just perfect. I love how all the earthy-color stripes look painted on. So artsy and cute! Plus, the fringe bag and feathers are just the loveliest touches. Can't get enough of that tribal-print bandeau either. It's perfect for summer!

AHHH. So glad you got to waitress! I'm so proud (: I would be totally afraid of dropping things too, so I'm so glad everything went well. Fingers crossed you get to do it more frequently, girl!

Endymion said...

The pattern of the skirt is loveley and you chose your accessories very well !

great look!


Lily Fang said...

Oh, and Linda! I can't believe I completely forgot to thank you for your beautiful words on my blog. They make me feel so much better--thank you. You're the best! I definitely wish we lived closer too.

Jo said...

Hey Linda! After being connected on Instagram and not being on the blogging scene for quite a while, I'm finally reconnected here on blogger!

I'm sorry I disappeared for quite a while on blogger. I was busy trying to finish up all my work before I went for a holiday to Italy. I just came back on Friday and I've to work in a few hour's time... SOBZ...

I can't catch up with your other posts so I will start from here. Your whole get up is so boho. Me likey! And your necklace, it's so beautiful!

Wow! Doing waitressing could earn you so much? I wouldn't mind being a waitress then! I was a pub waitress before. Restaurant by day and pub by night. Gosh, I can't serve too many glasses and mugs on a tray, I would fumble. I could only bring them by hand with a few mugs in each hand. Kudos to you!

Instagram is such a double edged sword. While I'm glad to continue connecting with bloggers on instagram, I find that I slowly lose touch with their blogs. Please don't let this happen to us. I'm surpriesed to see that my google friend connect is still working. I've since transferred all to bloglovin. I hope you would do the same too so we don't lose touch with each other.

Have a lovely week ahead.

Alexandra Zakharova said...

Hi Linda, I'm always glad to read your joyful posts. I must say you don't need that flower crown to add this outfit, it's already complete and edgy. Such flower crowns can be seen everythere and it has already boring, to my mind. Wish you good luck with your work )
Have a great time!


poziomka said...

Nice skirt!!

Izzy said...

i read about your name change! I think it was a good move because now it fits your personal style of blogging so much more, and plus it's a beautiful name! :)

anyway gorgeous outfit as always, I always love a boho touch! :)

Hi Linda, so great to see you in a maxi skirt, it suits you so well, loving the sweet bohemian touches that you added to this outfit. I hope that they see your potential and move you to waitressing soon, it sounds like it pays really well, I'm sure you did a better then splendid job of it!

You look awsome

caffinatedlove said...

ok, so, true story. I was going through my "blogs I follow" updates so I could comment on my lovely blogmates. And then I realized, Gee, Linda isn't showing up and she updates every day. Where did you go?

Then I remembered you revamped your blog and I hadn't added it to my Blogs I Follow yet. So I added you. Crisis averted! :P

I'm sure you did a fine job as a waitress. You seem very personable and polite, two things i tip very highly for.

Also, girl, you've got some legs! That maxi skirt fits you perfectly. Love how you styled it with sandals. <3


Joyce said...

Your outfit is amazing! I LOVE the pretty skirt. I really like how your style is so versatile :)

Ahhh oh no i missed your last post. So i'll comment here instead! I definitely don't think you should feel guilty about changing majors. College is about finding out what you love and that's exactly what you're doing! You are so creative and if photography and graphic design makes you happy, do it! Your classes sound challenging, but so fun!

i loved the outfit from the last post and this one has a completely different vibe but i love it too, the result of great statement pieces to build an outfit on maybe? its cool to hear youre pursuing where your heart lies, i know from experience that studying something youre not passionate about is so much harder than the things you like!
