A Maxi Kind Of Day

  
 
As I was going over my blog and the outfits I posted, I was realizing that so far most of the outfits I posted were more on the casual side. I guess one of the reasons is because all of the outfits I posted were exactly what I wore on that specific day when the pictures were taken. This actually goes well with what my intention was for this blog, and that is to give ideas to a regular person. Ideas for outfits that anyone can wear. I absolutely love over the top looks found in the fashion magazines and a lot of fashion blogs, but unfortunately, most of the time they don’t go hand in hand with my day to day life. And I am sure the same applies to most of you.
Back to this outfit. This was a going out outfit for me. I finally found a maxi skirt that looks good on my body. I don’t have a lot of hips, my waist is pretty high up and on top of that I have a heavy top. Due to this maxi skirts are a hard style for me to pull off without looking 20lb heavier. I tried many different ones and the result was always the same. I found this amazing skirt and was ecstatic that it fit me perfectly. The cut of the skirt is just right for me and there are not too many pleats to add bulk to my mid-section. I also love that it can be worn dressed up or dressed down, or somewhere in the middle, like my outfit here. I already have several looks in my head how I can wear it. I am sure this skirt will appear many more times on this blog. I wore it here with a chambray shirt to make the look a little bit more casual. I was not going to a fancy place so I didn’t want to be overdressed. Do you have a specific piece of clothing that you have been in love with but is a hard style for you to pull off? How have you dealt with this? Ciao!
