Going Maxi


Hello everyone! How are you? Well, I am now feeling a little excited about maxi skirt and maxi dress. 

It was actually started when I followed KIVITZ blog a few months ago. But before I begin, I will tell you my feeling about this maxi skirt first.

My friends used to call me a tomboy girl since I was in high school. I loved sneakers, shorts, t-shirt, short hair, and going everywhere cycling my bike. Even when I wore my first hijab on 2003 (I was a university student majoring Journalism), some of my friends still call me a tomboy. I think I loved being a tomboy because it was very practical and support my mobility very much. 

Back then, my days as a Journalism student made me needed to go to many places. Many times, I needed to go to places I'd never been and went home by night. 

I used public transportations very often so it was important for me to wear easy-to-wear clothes. I needed to be seen tomboy too, because I found out that in this way, I could prevent myself from being seen by men. They saw me as a tomboy so they wouldn't give me too much attentions that I don't want them to make. 

It was many years ago. But even with those thoughts of security issue, something inside of me still believe that I couldn't wear skirt only because I thought I was a tomboy and no skirts would fit me. I know it's only in my mind and it's just a mental block. But still, I thought I was too short and I looked ugly in them.

Until one day I found KIVITZ blog and follow it. I wasn't really sure at first but then I saw her posts and see how she can maintain being modest by wearing maxi skirts and look good too! :D

Somehow those posts of her blog moved me to buy my first maxi skirt. I think as a moslem woman, I still have that desire to wear clothes that cover the awrah properly

The first time I bought a maxi skirt, my first thought was: "Will I wear it?". But I thought, "Yeah, whatever. One skirt will not hurt me, so why not?"

I think I've beaten my mental block. Now, I have two maxi skirts and two maxi dresses in my closet. Hehehe... I'm not saying that I am now gonna wear maxi skirts all the time, but I am now considering to wear them. Hopefully I can wear them more often :)

So, this is me wearing maxi dress. I'm not very confident with the result, but I think I look alright. Hahaha... :P

    Kalo yang sekarang keliatan di blog banyakan warna pastel ya ^^

    Cantik kok.. Aku juga ngga banyak maxi skirt, tapi biasanya keliatan tinggi kalo pake yang bahan semacam itu, jatuh aja gitu di badan, lebih langsing.. hehehe
    Tapi kalo beli yang jadi, pasti kepanjangan ='3

  5. waah dari komenan kak nisa sama kak mia, baru tau kalo maxi dress bikin tinggi XD
    aku juga kak, dikampus aku kan wajib untuk mahasiswi pake rok atau maxi dress. nah sampe semester 2 aku anti banget pake maxi dress, pake rok melulu, padahal temen2 pengen lihat aku pake maxi dress. Akhrinya pas semester 3 sampe sekarang, kadang bisa pake maxi dress XD
