summer to fall

summer to fall
One thing that I have unsuccessfully tried to find all summer long is a versatile, comfortable, chic maxi skirt.  This is one of those items that has been on my shopping list for far too many months.  You know the story, every year June rolls around and I find myself lusting after all of those gorgeous maxi skirts out there on the interwebs, but more often than not I end up reaching for the miniskirts, then all of the sudden it’s August and I force myself to exchange my maxi skirt dreams for a pair of new jeans or a nice chunky knit.  However, this year I think these ankle-dusting beauties are sticking around to watch the leaves change!  I can already see so many outfit possibilities incorporating maxi skirts into fall layers (read: leather jackets and maxi skirts play well together).  So that’s that!  I shall continue the hunt, but for now, I’ll just have some fun mixing and matching on Polyvore.

Okay, it’s time for me to stop skirting around the issue……       (ha. ha.)…I used to dash away any possibility of my maxi-skirt-ability.  UNTIL NOW.  I have recently become  obsessed with the idea of sporting one of these floor length babies.  It’s the perfect outfit component for a breezier summer day, and so easy to adjust for night!  And what I love about the maxi skirt is it’s all about how you style it.  Now onto the photo inspiration…
