Max it out (outfit post)

14 Jul

Hello lovies, happy almost friday! Today I’m taking part in Pretty Shiny Sparkly’s Bloggers Do It Better Maxi Skirt Challenge. The cool weather around SoCal has got me longing (just a tad) for fall, so I decided to take my favorite maxi and play up the autumn color tones. It was even chilly enough outside that I needed a sweater for the photo shoot!

This look is so casual and a little boho… I was a bit nervous to go full on maxi at first, fearing I wouldn’t be able to move around as easily as usual, but it was surprisingly comfy! I loved the floaty feminine feeling. Are you a maxi fan? How else would you wear this?

What do you think of this outfit? I’m having a hard time figuring out what other types of tops go with maxis… it seems like they need something to balance out the fullness, no? Well, the boyfriend and I are off to an art walk, what are you up to this weekend?

Bisous,

Rachel

    Lovely outfit, I love the colour combo, I didn’t think I would like the maxi skirt either but I enjoyed this challenge :) I’m never really sure what to put with a maxi besides a vest though!

    Cute! I love getting to see all the different ways everyone is styling their maxis!
