Hello, friends! Is it just me or does the word maxi make less and less sense the more you look at it / read it?? Sorry, spent too long debating the title of this post, just ignore me and let’s move on to the maxi skirts!!!
I will freely admit that I have only two maxi skirts in my closet, which I have only worn on very few occasions. It’s not that I don’t like them, I do, it’s just that I have a hard time knowing how to wear them. So, when the theme for maxi skirts came up… for mid-January… my first thought was, “Are you crazy?!” And then my second thought – after a pause – was, “Challenge accepted!”
Oh, and then the weather in Southern California decided to get all bat shoot crazy (you know what I mean) and the temperatures for the past week have been in the 80’s! Luckily, Sunday (the day I took these photos) was slightly cooler so I wasn’t entirely sweating in my sweater.
Part of me feels like this is craziness and I am missing out on winter, but another small part of me feels totally guilty that I am soaking up some beautiful, Southern California, vitamin-D-enriched sunshine while most of the rest of the Northern hemisphere is, well, freezing. Sorry, I cannot change the weather. Ugh, I can’t even talk about the weather anymore. Let’s just look at some more pictures, okay?
white speckled sweater (Old Navy, only $8!!!)
floral maxi skirt (hand-me-down from Mom, originally H&M)
nude cut-out booties (gift (thrifted), originally Target)
blush pink stud earrings (H&M)
braided suede & cord bracelets (handmade)
Okay, so I supposed I didn’t technically thrift this skirt, but if I hadn’t taken it off my mom’s hands, it would have ended up at the Salvation Army anyway, so it’s like I pre-thrifted it… that’s a thing, right?
Do you have any plans for this holiday weekend?? I cannot wait to land in Utah where there is actual winter happening, right now! But don’t worry, I have a couple posts planned for while I am away! :)
