Why I love a Maxi Skirt

I asked my roomate, Why do y-o-u love a Maxi Skirt?  She said: If you haven't got your LA summer tan on yet they are what I use to hide my pasty white legs. --HAHA!  
Anyways who cares why I love them, why do you?  These 2 colors are available in Nordstrom
Who doesn't love grey for a good neutral and fuschia for a pop of color in that boring wardrobe.
there's some nail art in between each photo I added because I'm getting mine done after this post and saw a few eye-catching ones.  Steal some ideas:
