Red Pride + Red Gardens


 

     This weekend, some family from North Carolina visited, and we decided to take them around our city and then to D.C. We ended up visiting the Monument, White House, and a few Smithsonians along the way. Also, we ended the night by going to Nandos, one of my favorite restaurants ever!
     But for me, the highlight of the weekend was my new black maxi skirt from Forever 21. I've never owned a maxi, but the moment I saw it, I fell in love! Its so long, so flowy, and absolutely perfect to me!
     I was so excited to wear my skirt, but I ran into some roadblocks. I tried on as many tops as I could find, but nothing seemed to settle with the skirt! That was until I grazed over to my University of Maryland shirt, which I got a few years ago. I put it on, and I loved the whole look! I grabbed a chain necklace, some black flipflops, and I was on my way! I love finding another way to pair something I own, and this was definitely a fun look!

Love the look. I've always wanted a maxi skirt to pair with a knotted shirt. I went back in April to D.C., loved it there :)
