All Maxi’d Out!

Welcome to my first assignment for Bloggers Do It Better!!  The challenge: A Maxi Skirt.  (I’m glad that I reread the assignment because I read Maxi DRESS the first time!)  At first, I was disappointed because I forgot that I had a maxi skirt (note to self – donate more clothes) and wasn’t going to shop for an item that I wouldn’t wear very often.  Then, I was super pumped once I found it in my drawer!  Honestly, this assignment was a challenge.  I tend to wear the same outfits over and over but I wanted to do something unique.  (I have my usual yellow top and silver shoes/purse that I wear with this skirt.)  So, here is my attempt at something different!

button up: Prada (from a Neimans Last Call clearance clearance!)
tank: Banana Republic
skirt: Ross
shoes: Stuart Weitzman

I really love the contrasting turquoise, orange, and muted yellow!  And the pattern is divine.  It reminds me of something that can be found on wallpaper!  But I love it!

And of course, there is usually a lot of bling!  I chose silver jewelry because they match the little silver “mirrors” sewn on my white skirt.  In this pile:
silver/orange bracelet – El Salvador for $1
3 silver bangles – Premier jewelry
silver/white necklace – thrifted from estate sale
chunky silver necklace – Atlantis Dry Goods
earrings – Anna Sheffield for Target

When I originally read the challenge incorrectly, I thought about this maxi dress given to me by mom.  It’s really comfy and BRIGHT!  I styled it anyways to show you how it could look like a maxi SKIRT by wearing a T-shirt (knot tied on the side) over the dress.

dress (styled as a skirt): gifted from mom
shirt: JCrew (This was my first JCrew shirt bought at Marshalls for $5. I was so excited when I found it years ago.)
shoes: Ross
necklace: Anna Sheffield for Target
earrings: gifted from a gal pal
bangles: F21 and Premier

 
The giveaway ends on Sunday and winner will be announced on Monday!

Happy Friday!!
