Maxi Skirt For The Summer
Don’t you find it funny when you realize you have a habit you didn’t know you had? When I was going through my Chicwish wishlist, I immediately loved this watercolor maxi skirt. Chicwish usually does a good job with their skirt selection. When I got it, I knew it was great for summer. So I immediately started coming up with outfits. And this is what I came up with for this maxi skirt: white top and along the water. I don’t know if it has something to do with how flowy that skirt is that reminds me that it is perfect by the water, but that was where my gut was telling me.
An Accidental Habit
I know that last year I wore a couple maxi skirts on the blog, and the year before as well. And to my surprise, after looking at the previous years’ posts, I pretty much had the same idea year after year: Maxi skirt with white top and by the water. I couldn’t help but laugh at myself because it was not planned at all to be very similar outfits. So I guess this was a habit I didn’t know I had when it comes to maxi skirts: always wear it with a white top and be by the water haha!
A Year in Comparison
As I looked back, it was crazy to look at what changed. In 2016, this was me during chemo (ok not quite a white top, but for sure by the water. Also, I was wearing a wig). In 2017, my hair was finally growing back from chemo and I was not ashamed to share my mullet haha. I wore a green maxi skirt and a floral maxi skirt (also by Chicwish). Now in 2018, I am amazed by my hair growth! And this is my hair after 3 or 4 hair cuts since last summer. It is almost shoulder length and I can do a braid! Freaking out!
I think I am freaking out because of how much my life has changed in the past couple years. Whether it is mentally or physically. I can’t help but get teared up whenever I reflect back. It gets me emotional because I know how much pain, sadness, and happiness I felt. It takes me back as if I’m currently living it. I also get emotional because I have changed so much to the point that I don’t recognize who I was before cancer. I’m a completely different person. Insane what cancer has done to our lives (mine and my husband’s). But at the same time, so much good came out of it. I know me and 14 other amazing women also believe that cancer has changed their life in a positive way.
