Style Day: Fancy Maxi

Today’s post was supposed to be a lifestyle post, since I haven’t done one in a while, but the kale just would not dry yesterday. Blame it on the rain. It’ll all make sense when I get the post up. Hopefully I can get that done for Friday. So… it’s back to back outfit posts!

necklace:: J.Crew via Poshmark closet @carolinelissie (similar) cardigan:: Lands End Canvas (Lands End version) tank:: Anthropologie (similar) maxi skirt:: Madewell sandals:: Jessica Simpson (similar)

This outfit got photographed because I had a Facebook request that went a little something like this “Must. See. More. Of. Your. Dress.” (Guys if you’re not following Katy, you’re missing out big time.) What this outfit turns out to be is an old tank top and the maxi skirt I bought last month looking as if they were meant to be. Since I only wore it for a few hours at the meeting on Sunday, I ended up repeating it on Monday for work. I did swap out the shoes and necklace–in hindsight I should’ve worn the same necklace. I’m not wild about how the hot pink looks with the pink in the tank. Seriously though, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

If you’re interested in getting this Madewell skyward skirt, I do love it, but a similar J.Crew skirt recently became cheaper than this similar version. I wasn’t expecting it to get so cheap! The Madewell one does have a light stripe built into the overlay and is easier to dress up, and there’s not a gal out there that doesn’t want to wear her maxis every where she can. Having slightly dressier maxi options helps a gal do that. All the gauze and the true elastic waist of the J.Crew maxi I feel makes it a little less polished than the Madewell maxi I’m wearing, in my opinion. The only down fall for all you hippy girls is that there is not much elastic or drawstring going on in this waist. Like I have to pull this on over my head. Sometimes you put skirts on weird when you really like them. This happens to be one of those times. That’s enough secrets for the week.

Don’t forget about the TWO giveaways happening here this week! There’s the spray tan giveaway and then the giveaway The Modern Austen is hosting that includes me and other amazing bloggers.

  1. Haha. Worth the wait to see the whole thing. This is super adorable. And you are too. If you only knew the weird ways I put on some of my clothes…

  2. Thankssssss! I get my adorableness from my bloggy friend Katy. 😉 Corey always complains about the way I put on my shirts. I put them on over my head and then do my arms. He does arms first then over the head. He said he should film it and it get ten million views as the weird girl putting on clothes in a weird way.

  3. Absolutely LOVE! The pop of pattern from the tank is just perfect. You look SO pretty!!

  4. I LOVE that outfit!! I've been living in maxis this summer and I would seriously steal the whole look!

  5. Super cute! Now I see why you don't need the J.Crew one in navy- they look SO similar. A great styling here, as usual. 🙂

  6. Thanks Lindsey! Yeah they're just a little too much alike for me to justify them both.

  7. I've never tried to do a dress with this one, but I have a few jersey ones that may work with that way! Thanks for the idea.

  8. Audrey! Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my blog! I really appreciate your comment. 🙂

  9. Thanks Katie! The pattern has kept me from giving this tank away several times.

  10. Good to know I'm not the only one. It was just too good to only wear for a few hours.

  11. Oh gurl, I didn't just stop by…I subscribed on Bloglovin' 😉 Looking forward to more of your posts!
