I've been so inspired by all of the maxi skirts that have been all over the fashion news (and in our little blog) that I have been on the hunt for the perfect version. I found the one below by Elizabeth and James and was so taken that I had to purchase it immediately! Now that I've introduced this new gem to my closet I've created a million potential casual outfits (IE: simple tank, flip flops or wedges). Easy right? Well, now I'm going to take on a more challenging ensemble, making my new maxi professional chic! And here's the best part, I think I've got it and I'm going to share it with you!
I'm going to pair this beautiful, flowing skirt with a printed silk blouse and a structured blazer. Because the skirt is quite voluminous, you want the blazer to be tailored and hit right at the hip. I will get a little height (and add some funky flare) with some peep toe booties. For the final touch, I will throw on a super fabulous necklace and a ginormous cuff bracelet.
What do you think? Could you rock this maxi look at your officina? I certainly will be...tomorrow!
