attn: maxi skirt and dress haters

i used to be one of you.
i hated them.
with a passion.
i hadn't even tried one on.
i refused.
that's how real this hate was.

on friday i bought a maxi skirt and dress.
i'm not trying to be dramatic, but...
so free.
so comfortable.
so revolutionary.
it's like being naked in public.
literally the best thing that's happened to me.

the only problem is,
i can't stop.
two is not enough.
i need at least seven more.
one for each day of the week
and a few back-ups,
just in case i get sap on one of them.
yes, sap.
i eat lunch outside.
on a rock.
under a tree.
a tree that pees sap like crazy.

just stop the hate.
it's probably straining your relationship
with your maxi-wearing friends.
no one likes a hater
[except little girls that don't care].

don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
i'm serious.

your life will change.
you will be able to sit cross legged
without worrying about flashing innocent bystanders.
you will be able to frolic in a meadow 
without being bothered whether or not
your undaroos are showing.
when you have to lift up your skirt
to deal with stairs,
you will feel like a princess.

you will feel fancy and carefree
and your boobz will look great.
too bad. it's true.
trust me. 

moral of the story:
with maxi-skirts/dresses
no one can see london, france or your underpants.
and you don't have to shave as often.

I can't believe you use to hate maxi skirts and dresses! That is insane! I LOVE THEM WITH ALL MY HEART! (: Also once you get your garments you will truly feel naked when wearing a maxi dress or skirt.. trust me ;P hahah

Shaylynn... I blahwg It's True. said...

I don't hate them.

I hate the name, I just think of pads, which makes me think of periods, and how I am always on mine.

That is as far as I go with them.

Naked feeling? I'd rather not think of this.

frolic in the meadow.
like Edward and Bella?
hahaha. Now I am picturing you frolicking in the meadow with Edward. I hope your fiance doesn't mind.

I know what you mean about not having enough.. in fact I have been looking online all day today at work for maxi skirts and dresses, but i haven't bought anything because I don't know if it will fit that great or that long, I need to try them on... so for the last half hour I have been contemplating ways I can trick Matt into coming to city creek with me so I can try some on. haha. oh maxis, oh love.

jessie said...

Kelli Anderson said...

identical experience happened to me this weekend. oh and it also happened to jared. he would barf when he saw them and refuse to let me try them on. and then one day i saw this maxi at ross and even from a distance i knew it was made for my body and i tried it on and came out and showed jared and he wouldn't not let me get it and now we both LOOOOOOOVE the maxi.
