Everyday Elegance: Maxi Skirt

I love outfits that are versatile enough to cover many occasions.  I was able to wear this outfit to work on Saturday, as well as out for a date night which made it super easy because usually after a long day of working the last thing I want to do is take time getting ready.  All I had to do was freshen up my hair and makeup and we were good to go!

On Friday I had mentioned that I had recently par took in some retail therapy, this skirt is one of the new pieces that I recently picked up.  I tend to really like a lot of pieces by Max Studio, they are made well, they feel good, and tend to last a long time.  Usually I pick up pieces by Max Studio at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, but semi-recently a Max Studio outlet store has opened close to me which is where I scored this piece.  They were having their end of summer sale and had tons of great pieces to choose from at great prices, including this maxi skirt.  The chevron shape of the stripes make it quite slimming which I can't complain about!

That necklace has been a favorite for me this summer.  I picked it up at the beginning of the summer at J.Crew Factory and throw it on anytime I want to dress up an outfit, it works perfectly and I always get compliments on it every time I wear it.

The rest of the outfit was comprised of my summer staples.  An easy casual Target tank, which I'm starting to think I should pick up in more colors for how much I wear this one!  My Michael Kors crossbody bag which I use all the time, if I'm not working this is all that I carry with me and I love not lugging around a big bag.  And with the bizarre sometimes fall like weather we've been having throwing in a jean jacket for evenings is a must.

Date night, enjoying the beautiful weather by dinning outside.

Have you had any good fashion scores lately?

  1. Love this outfit! I think next time I'm in town, we need to meet up and you need to take me shopping - you always have the best finds!

  2. I love versatility too - this outfit is so perfect for that!! Jean jackets are awesome in that they match everything!!

  3. I'm totally up for that! Though I think it's just cause I go looking ALL the time, some may consider it a problem :)

  4. I love that I can get away with maxi skirts and dresses at work, though I'm thinking the same doesn't work for you!

  5. Super cute outfit! Love it with the jean jacket!
