EBEW: The Maxi Skirt!

This month the girls over at Everybody, Everywhere chose the maxi skirt to be styled.  Well, actually they had a few choices, asked us to vote and the winner was the MAXI
To see how others styled a maxi just click on the above icon to check it out.

Here is the way I styled mine

I took my beloved stripe maxi and paired it with a floral cardi. 
I added the mustard tank for some contrasting color.
I then added some navy accessories, the necklace and bangle bracelets to pull it all together.
I really like this color combination and the mixing of patterns.
I think it makes for a great casual everyday look without being fussy in the least.

I wore my Target wedges again
and was actually able to wear them all day long this time. 
They are surprisingly very comfortable.
Coming from a non-shoe person like me...that's saying something.

mustard cami-Kohl's
floral cardi-The Loft

necklace-The Loft

FutureLint said...

The color and pattern mixing is so unexpected but it all works beautifully together!

I really like the pattern mixing. What a good way to get a new look from the dress. It's very flattering and the cardi and tank add a spring-y feel.

Becky Lee Dreams said...

You look fantastic! I love your colors!

Rebecca said...

I really like the colors you chose. The combination is unexpected, but really pretty.

Shybiker said...

Nice, interesting combination.

Jessica Zigenis said...

I'm so scared of maxi dresses, but you pull it off very nicely! Lovely!

ps. In regards to your comment on my blog--I do not have any "cleavage" to debate on showing--it aint' showing no matter what because it's non-existent. haha However, I love it that way. I'm relatively modest, so I wouldn't show it even if I had it.

I like this. The combination of the bold stripes on the dress with the bright tank and cardi is very fun. Great job.

I am not a cleavage showing girl either and get very self conscience when i
even feel like it is showing
Will stick to toe cleavage lol

silvrgurl said...

I think florals and stripes are my favorite combo right now as well
EBEW is every month, you gotta try it
Go Target for great shoes, do you have Target where you are?

silvrgurl said...

I must have picked up and put down that cardi a dozen times before I decided
to actually buy it
Now I love it and am thinking of wearing it again today. lol

I think I saw some maxi dresses with stripes at Old Navy.
