Maxi + chambray

Chambray Top: H&M (old) (similar herehere, here)

Tank: Target – currently on sale (best tanks)

Skirt: Macy’s (old) (similar here, here, here – on sale) (need this one)

Sandals: Cole Haan (old) (other fab options here, here, love these)

Bag: old (other pastel options – here, here)

Necklace: ? (old)

Watch: t+j Designs c/o

I absolutely love maxi skirts, and I though I had more than two but turns out – No I don’t! 

I remembered one that my sweet lovely-forgets-to-return-borrowed-clothes sister borrowed last year,  I’m pretty sure.

So I’m on a quest to find more maxi skirts. They’re just a must! 

For those of you who have been reading my blog I’m sure you remember the bag above I got last year. I just had to have it. And this is the first time I’m wearing it this year, even though I love it. It’s just another neglected item in my closet. Sad, I know. 

 It might need a new more loving home. 

Happy Hump Day!

    Maxi skirts like this make my large legs look even larger. However, that has never stopped me from trying them on. I love how crazy good it looks on you Lily!

    Beautiful, Lilly πŸ™‚ I have many maxi skirts, too and agree that they are a must. Between the maxi skirts and dresses they dominate my closet! Only wish that I had more of the year I could wear them – Cincinnati's weather only works for them about 1/2 the year!

    Love maxi skirts and dresses, especially with navy stripes! Still haven't found the perfect one for myself though :-(I know the feeling you have about your bag – I'm trying to be very picky about what bags I buy as I want to make sure I use what I have!

      Surprisingly they seem hard to find. I've been looking to add a couple more to my closet. Hopefully we'll find THE ones soon πŸ™‚

    That is a fabulous bag! I can't believe you have been neglecting it! I wanted to get more maxi skirts this summer, but all I could find were hi-lo's… until I went to H&M. Thanks goodness for H&M :)Kate @ A Journey in Style

    I need a maxi skirt – whenever I try one on it looks "wrong" so I am still on the hunt for the right one….

    I love, love, love maxi skirts!!!!! Actually maxi dresses as well. We are on vacation and I brought 4 maxi dresses and one maxi skirt with me. They are so comfortable, like wearing pj's but they are far more fashionable. Love your look today Lilly.Agi:)

    Absolutely love this look- or really any look with chambray! Maxi skirts and dresses are typically too long for me so I need to make sure I absolutely love it because I'll have to spend more money altering it. I saw a great one at J Crew today that resembled yours but didnt even think to pair with chambray…back in the car I go LOL

    This is really, really cute! I was just lamenting on my blog yesterday about how hard it is for me to style a maxi skirt. I just pinned your look to my outfit inspiration board so I can recreate my own version of this look!!

    You should do a post on some fantastic maxi skirt options! I have only 1 and it was a DIY project. I love it, but I'm always lost on how to wear it. I love maxi dresses though!
