I have to say, today’s outfit is totally cobbled together for the blog. Doug and I went on a little thrifting excursion a few days back, and I wanted to show you several new pieces at once. I suppose this is a good case of necessity being the mother of (fashion) invention? Ha. And I find it rather ironic that I’m writing this just after Daffny posted about dressing for one’s blog! I assure you that the vast majority of what appears on this blog is actually worn in my day-to-day life, but this outfit was created solely for the purpose of photography.
The thunderbird belt and rayon maxi skirt were found on the same day and cost less than $15 together, so I used them as the basis of the outfit. I wasn’t sure how to style a black maxi skirt, so I went full tilt with the southwestern theme in hopes of making it look a little more casual.
I clearly need some vintage inspiration… Do you wear maxi skirts as part of your everyday wardrobe? How do you avoid looking too dressy?
