Tall drink of water

I love the longline looks of maxi skirts.  I am not particularly tall, but I think I am a little bit on the longer-legged spectrum.  Thigh high socks always come up to my knees!  I found this skirt at the thrift store and it is large in the waist but I cinched it tighter with a jersey knit rope belt from another tunic.   It was freezing outside for how sunny it was, but I was determined as all heck to NOT wear a coat... henceforth hidden cardigan and bundled scarf!  I even wore knee socks and Uggs underneath the skirt for extra warmth.  The wind chill factor is pretty crazy lately, but I will not complain... a day in Germany without rain is a precious one!

What I wore:
Thrifted GAP Jean jacket and black maxi skirt.  White slub tee.  Longchamp bag.  Handmade scarf.  Guess earrings c/o ktk.  Sunglasses from Ebay.
