Anthropologie Leadlight Maxi Skirt

I’m really not one to buy immediately after seeing an item from the Anthropologie Catalog. J Crew…all day long…but not Anthro, or any other catalog for that matter. The Leadlight Maxi Skirt is the first time I’ve wanted something immediately, without trying it on.

I couldn’t decide if I should go with the 6 or 8 Petite, as Maeve’s sizing for me is all over the place (size 4 in the Mod Garden Dress). I went with the 8 Petite and it was the right call. I think the 6 might have been too snug in the waist. Right now the 8P sits high-waisted on me, but that is fine. I don’t plan on tucking anything in to it. 
I’m not sure if I should have it hemmed or not though. It drags the floor when I’m standing still but seems to just hit the floor when I’m walking/moving. I will mainly wear flats with it. A heel wouldn’t require the hemming. It is lined but only to just above the knee where the slit starts. I show you an Angelina pose when I wear it…which will be soon!
All the gorgeous colors in it will make it so versatile to wear this summer. Now that Husband has finally finished our itinerary for our trip I can do the final planning of what I’ll talk. This skirt is in the running to take. 
What do you think of the Leadlight Maxi Skirt?

    The skirt is absolutely gorgeous. So colorful and cheerful. Perfect for summer! I would wear it with flats too. Think they give that casual and chic look to the skirt.

    I would get it hemmed a little bit if you're planning on wearing it with flats, mostly. It sounds like it's going to get dirty. I mean…you're not always in motion, y'know?

    I love it on you!
