EBEW: Maxi

I have actually come to realize that I have quite a few maxis in my possession. I spent last night with all of them - trying on this with that and trying on that with this. I originally decided on a pretty, colorful look but when I woke up freezing this morning, I decided to switch it up to a heavier skirt. If you're a regular reader around these parts, I know you've seen this one before so I hope it doesn't bore you too much - I just love it so! (Don't worry, I put that other look away for a warmer day!)

EBEW: Maxi (04/12/11)
Pink Tshirt: City Streets, JCPenney, $5 (sale)
Skirt: Juno, Thrifted@Salvation Army, $2.99
Belt: Alfani, Thrifted, $1
Black Flats: Diana Ferrari, Thrifted@Salvation Army, $3.75
Snake Bangle Watch: Studio Time (Buy it!), Kohls, Gift from my mom for Christmas (2010)
Necklace/Earrings: Avon, Gift from my aunt
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

I think that pink and grey together just look so fresh. It's still spring worthy but since the skirt is pretty thick (and actually a little heavy... there's a lot of fabric to this thing) it's perfect for a breezy spring day like today. I added some simple black flats just to keep the emphasis on the skirt and the colors. Though, to be honest, I never like the look of any shoes that I pair with this skirt. I wish I could walk around barefoot sometimes. Anyone else with me on this?

I love this belt. I always feel limited in wearing it with things but I'm trying to get over that. My boyfriend thought it looked strange because it's on an angle but I actually liked it that way. It adds a little funk. Can angles add funk? Or am I just a total grandma for saying that?

I made my mom buy me this for Christmas. Well, actually, it went down more like this: I picked it up. I said I loved it. She said put it in the cart, you're getting it for Christmas. I obeyed. This occurred on our annual Black Friday crazy-early-are-you-kidding-me-that-I'm-shopping-this-early Shopping Event of 2010. She's usually been up for zillions of hours when we do this (she works nights as a nurse) so this tends to work in my favor. Merry Christmas to me.

Finally, it's important to note that my boyfriend took these photos for me. He has since been given his pink slip due to including the corner of our grill in nearly every single shot - hence the smaller size of my photos today.

  2. I feel like shoes ruin maxi dresses/skirts. It's a tragedy.

    You look fantastic. I don't remember seeing this skirt before! Maybe you styled it differently and I'm dumb :)

  3. ee- this skirt is gorgeous, and it is a very fresh combination with the vivid pink. I love how...just...long this skirt is!! I have a long grey pleated wool skirt, but it's a wrap and somehow the weight conspires to blow open. somehow not so warm nor demure...!

  5. Love the pleated skirt and the belt and the pink tee. So pretty. If you have any pointy toe flats, they work well with maxi skirts.

  8. I wasn't sure about wearing a maxi yesterday because it was pretty chilly here. This heavier one is good idea for the trasitional days. And I love that bracelet!

  19. Ooo, I love your skirt!!! It's so pretty, I love the fullness. I think angles are fun in pictures, as long as they aren't too severe. They definitely add funk :)
