Ohio Wine + Maxi Skirt

I love the annual Ohio Food & Wine Festival at the North Market in Columbus, and I wanted to wear a summer outfit that was comfortable but still chic.  I love the current trend of maxi skirts/dresses, but I don't own one and obviously cannot buy one until May 13th, 2013 {not that I am counting the days or anything!}  My kind friend Rachel was sympathetic to my shopping situation so she graciously let me borrow her maxi skirt that she bought at Target a few summers ago.  I paired it with an ivory top, black accessories, and bright nails.  I am officially in love with the effortless and easy style of maxi dresses, and it was such a great evening with great people!
