To The Max

Burgundy Maxi Skirt & Leopard Clutch

Considering how much I’ve been loving a good maxi dress lately (see exhibit A and exhibit B), it was only a matter of time that it would translate over into skirt form.  I snagged this burgundy maxi skirt (which you can score for an extra 50% off today only!) in petite so that the hem floats just around the ankles instead of dragging on the ground.  I told you my hem lines were only going to get longer from here on out.

Middle Ground

Black Midi Skirt with Mesh Stripe

I recently wore this cami and this midi skirt to work and while I could live in an easy outfit like this year-round, I think Mother Nature is starting to disagree.  With much chillier temps around these parts, soft sweaters and chunky knits are calling my name … except I’m not ready to give into piling on the layers just yet.  Until then, I’m taking the middle ground and balancing a lightness of my top with a little more coverage of a full midi skirt.  That’s a compromise I can get behind.

Two Ways to Wear: Chunky Sweaters

Chunky Sweater & Ripped Jeans

Yesterday’s outfit marked the first sweater of the season.  I tried to resist for as long as I could, but there’s just no denying it: it’s cold outside.  The first major drop in degrees is always the hardest and all the sudden, I find myself wanting to buy every sweater in sight.  On the top of my list this season: chunky knits like this funnel neck number or this textured topper. If I have to start bundling up, it’s going to be in one of these.  Just add a pair of ripped skinnies or a pencil skirt and it’s easily a work or weekend look worth staying warm in.
