To The Max

Good Morning my loves!! I hope your short week is coming along nicely, Canada Day on Monday and in the states tomorrow is Independence Day!! Holidays all around! Short weeks are so much better than longer weeks, of course. 
It's awesome how having a fashion blog pushes you out of your comfort zone and causes you to try new things. I have never owned a maxi dress or skirt, but I've always wanted one, and now I finally took the plunge! I fell in love with this one from Loft 82, the colour is amazing and the fact that it's half lined. Mustard and stripes are one of my favorite combinations, this striped onesie went perfect with my brand new maxi.

  4. Holy crap, this skirt is gorgeous! The color and the pleats are just lovely. You need to wear this all the time. I love how you dressed it down with a striped shirt!

  5. Oh my god this outfit is GORGEOUS! im so glad you went outside your comfort zone and tried this, because it's by far one of my favorites. i think it's the swooped tee that makes it so amazing. that or the fact that the skirt is half sheer. either way, i'm totally smitten (haha- see what i did there? ;))

    1. It's definitely one of my favourites too!! I've worn this skirt 3 times since I took these pictures last week, guess I should have tried a maxi years ago!!
      Haha, you're punny ;)

    1. This is definitely my favourite place to take pictures, unfortunately it's right off a VERY popular walking path and my tripod and i garner many a strange look

  7. good for you for trying something new! You look great! I totally agree that a blog has opened me up to trying new things or reconsidering other things. hehe.

  8. This skirt is perfect. I love that it's shorter underneath. So pretty. Also it's the perfect color for you. Canada Day sounds way more exciting than the fourth of july!

  9. Hey girl! Thanks for coming by my blog and for your sweet comment! I am totally driven to wear new crazy things since I've started blogging. I still haven't added a maxi to my closet, but I'm dying to! I'm a little worried because I'm so short, but I've heard they are suupper comfy. I love the mustard/stripey combo here! And your yellow nails!

    perfectly priya

  13. I haven't had a maxi for years - I kept tripping and skinning my knees/ripping the hems. But this one looks like the perfect length and the half-lined detail is so pretty! I love how even though you're out of your comfort zone in this look, you styled it in a way that is completely you :)

    1. Thank you!!
      I was so worried that I was going to find one that was too long and trip and die. I am notoriously clumsy so I'm glad this one is the perfect length!!

  14. I'm always scared to try maxi skirts because of my epic shortness. I love this one on you! I think the half sheer detail makes it particularly awesome. Your striped top is great with it too!
