StyleMay 5, 2014

blouse (Morton James), belt (HM), skirt (Chico’s See Similar HERE c/o), clutch (Clare Vivier, Omar + Elsie also available HERE), sneaks (Vans), heels (Rebecca Minkoff, love THESE and THESE), bracelets (Morton James CuffOmar + ElsieKate Spade), rings (lagos, Anna Beck), hat (HM, see SIMILAR), necklace (Page Sargisson)

As a single working mom, I’ve got a certain number of criteria my threads must meet.  Style aside, I opt for pieces that are flattering, comfy, age appropriate, a good investment (think BagsDenim, and Shades)–meaning am I going to get enough wear out of the pieces to justify the price–but most importantly for me–versatility.  Is the piece going to allow me to wear it in a multitude of ways?  Well this Navy Maxi Skirt definitely meets all of my requirements.  Check.  

I wanted to showcase the Maxi’s ability to be easy going and casual with a hat & Sneaksbut also that she can be spruced up with some heels and a patterned Clutch.  Perfect little number for my lifestyle and also moving into the warmer months–although how cute would she be paired with a chunky knit for the fall? It also bears mentioning that while we’re revving up for vacations and travel plans, the Maxi is sure to make any Destination Fabulous–easy to toss in the suitcase, and adorable with a slew of summer threads (tunics, tanks, bikini tops, summer sweaters).  
Alright gang, make it a good one—another gorg day in Lex–we’ll be grilling out tonight for sure!
