So Long

Sweater: Thrifted, $1 // Skirt: Forever 21, $20 // Necklace: Forever 21, $9 // Belt: Old Navy, $8

The maxi trend has been going strong for some time, so I decided to get in on the action and bought this skirt awhile back. The tags did not come off right away. For some reason I found myself rather intimidated by it.


Seeing Krystal and Christine style this very skirt in several gorgeous ways was definitely a source of inspiration. Kyla also had an impressive streak of fabulous maxi skirt looks. Now that I've worn mine a couple of times, I can see it becoming part of the regular rotation. I envision it with a tank, sandals and statement necklace come warmer weather.

I have the same skirt and I love it. I think it is the perfect maxi skirt to play around with, and it will mix well with most wardrobes.

I think that is a great maxi, it's quite voluminous which I kinda like :)

I'm totally intimidated by the maxi trend, too! But I love it, so I know I'm going to have to just go for it. You look great! I love the sweater with that skirt. Great combo.

I'm still in the awkward stage with maxi skirts. It just feels like a lot of fabric to me.

I really love the way you styled this!
I've actually been thinking of new outfits with this warm/pink color scheme. It seems so feminine and chic. That gold belt you tied in looks fabulous. :)

Wow, not seen you in that silhouette but it looks amazing. I love how the belt adds some detail and moves your waistline up a little. Looking good.

I have yet to attempt the maxi skirt/dress look. I love how simple you kept everything and made the look easy!! Lovely!! ;)

I really love your outfit! I would like to try the maxi trend, but I'm also quite intimidated by it. You wear it well!

I also like the color combination of your outfit, very pretty.

that is a beautiful skirt. I am totally intimidated by maxi skirts, I'm always afraid I'll look short in them! You look lovely

I love the maxi look and really want to add a skirt to my wardrobe. I had a long gray one from Forever 21 and I believe I gave it away a couple of years ago. Shame on me! Love the way you styled it with the pink and bronze. I'm now on the hunt!

I love this! I've been recently inspired for wintry maxi-dress wearing by Kyla, and I really love what you've done with it here. It's perfect with that sweet, cozy sweater.

Anna said...


Great colours together, and love the necklace.

Ahh!! Our fair Lawrence!

This one felt a little Mrs. Robinson to me, the belt, is so cute. Like the closest you could get a belt to looking like a bow. Well done Kansas.

Great look. I am really flummoxed by the looong skirts in my wardrobe. Not easy for me to style. Great inspiration, thanks :)

Catching up on your old posts... I love this outfit! Though being only 5' it would be really hard for me to pull off, I will defintiely use this as inspiration and recreate using my wardrobe pieces. Now I wish I would have included a maxi in my 30 for 30 picks. Oh well, theres always next month!
