maxi madness.

Outfit details: Leaf earrings – $3.80 @ Forever21; H&M scarf – $9.99 @ H&M; Kensie cardigan – $4.99 @ Savers in Rochester; Liz Claiborne belt – $1.99 @ Goodwill in Maplewood; Casual Corner maxi skirt – $0.99 @ Arc’s Value Village in Brooklyn Center; Mossimo flats – $4.98 (75% off clearance) @ Target.

I never thought I would wear an ankle-length skirt in an attempt to be “fashionable,” but after seeing some of my favorite bloggers sport the maxi skirt look so effortlessly (here, here, and here), I decided to give it a go. I managed to get just what I was after for a mere $0.99 at one of my local thrift stores, and before I knew it, I was rockin’ the maxi! I am loving the fact that it’s suprisingly comfortable and gives off a different aura of sophistication in comparison to say, a pencil skirt. And what’s even better is that as the temperatures start to drop, you can simply slip on a pair of leggings or sweater tights underneath without anyone knowing the difference. I am calling this “bohemian chic.”

What is your opinion on the maxi trend – love it or leave it?

  3. I love maxi skirts and this one looks great on you! Can’t believe you found it for so cheap, that’s awesome. Also – I am so jealous that you can rock a scarf right now … it’s still SO hot and humid in Florida :(
