back to basics

I purchased this maxi skirt this past summer on vacation and just can't bear the thought of putting it away for the winter so I'm stretching its potential with a denim jacket and booties. Seriously though, I've met a lot of maxi skirts in my day but never one with a lining (mini skirt length) which I LOVE love love because it keeps those lumps and bumps in check. On that note, I just might keep this one around all year...

  1. yea maxi skirts have the tendency to show off all those lumps dont they, haha. that's awesome you found one with a lining- that really helps! and i love moving summer dresses over into fall too- it really stretches that closet out.

    Ps- I found you through the Styling in St. Louis linkup :)

  2. I love your denim jacket! I don't own a maxi skirt because of their clingy tendencies, but one with a lining sounds like a good idea to me!

  3. Hurrah! Love a maxi dress. A busy mom's best friend.

  4. This is really simple and elegant and something I would totally wear! I love the ankle boots with the maxi.

  5. basics are always great!

  6. I love that skirt, it looks great on you!

  7. love your outfit! the maxi skirt and denim jacket go so perfectly together!
