Maxi skirt x 2

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I have a confession to make: I have too many maxi skirts. When I find something that I love, I buy multiples (which is also why I own that green Loft sunwashed tee in five colors). Anyways, there's something about being able to throw a skirt on that feels like sweatpants and look pulled together. I spent a good part of studying for my medical boards last summer in my favorite J. Crew Factory striped maxi skirt.

My maxi skirt recipe is the skirt + tee + statement necklace + sandals (mine are these Target ones). I think it's the perfect summer dinner date ensemble.

And maxi skirt numero dos. This is my original maxi skirt; I bought it final sale from J. Crew and it looked blue-ish on screen but ended up being a saturated grape purple. I thought it was too purple until I saw this inspiration.

This crystal flower necklace is from J. Crew and was part of a little post-exam retail therapy last week (I still feel slightly guilty).
