Teachers love to pull out a new look on the first day of school…after all; it is not just the students who want to make a good impression.   Gigi has just returned from shopping in Florida where she found the cool maxi skirt pictured below.  Yes, it is linen…but I have to say it looked really good at the end of the day…not as wrinkled as linen pants would.

I, on the other hand chose to show more leg just because of the heat….not because I think my legs are that great.  We have gone over 43 straight days of 0ver 100 degree heat and longer without rain.  Excessive heat zaps energy…creativity…and, yes, sometimes even joy.  I have decided that no matter what the temperature is on September 1, I am going to pull out the fall decorations for my house.  I usually wait until closer to October, but I need some hope…something else to concentrate on.
I love this skirt…it is so fun!
Not long ago, I bid A FOND FAREWELL TO LANE BRYANT , because after my diet, their clothes were a little loose on my body. I shopped most of the summer for skirts and had a really difficult time finding ones that I liked and that fit the body I have now.  Then I remembered What Not To Wear.  Stacy and Clinton are famous for saying, “You take control of your clothes; don’t allow the clothes to control you.”  So, back to Lane Bryant I went.   I found four skirts which could easily be tailored to fit….now I agree with S & C that a good tailor can serve you well. 
So, until we have some type of cool down….at least to the low 90s….I may be showing a little leg often!
