BDIB: Maxing out

Today I'm participating in the Bloggers Do It Better maxi skirt "challenge".  


^ Awkward pose! Heh.



I think this is only the second time I've styled this maxi skirt on my blog, but it's not the second time I've worn it.  I wasn't sure how to wear it to work, so I waited until a casual Friday and threw on a plain white tee, belted the outfit, and added a fun necklace.  I opted for leopard print shoes to add a fun print, and to avoid the walking problems that would come with heels.  Those walking problems are a direct result of this skirt's size. It's not very flow-y and I can't take full strides, so it would be super difficult to wear it with anything but flats.

Fun fact: I used the back of some random person's car to take these photos in my apartment parking lot. My usual spot was filled with people walking by, so I went somewhere a little more quiet. I'm lucky they didn't come out to get their car, or that would have been really fun to explain...

  7. Those flats look so great with that skirt. I also love black + white combination. I bet if the person walked out they would have been confused and then offer to take your photo.
