Breezy Blue

Whoops, forgot to post this yesterday!

I often pair maxi skirts with a fitted top to give the silhouette some definition.  While this top still has a t-shirt type of shape it's much looser than a fitted tee and drapes differently, making a really breezy outfit.  Somehow I managed to do a half-tuck with this blouse over my baby bump and have it look not super weird.  (Though, this pic was taken 1.5 weeks ago, and since then my bump has grown significantly so that probably won't work anymore!)  A simple pendant and simple t-strap sandals would have made it really chill and laid back, but instead I added slightly more intricate jewelry and wedge sandals to dress it all up a *bit* more.  Laid back with a small touch of chic.  Right up my alley!

On another note, I've gotten handfuls of questions on what to pair with maxi skirts--both for tops and for shoes.  Namely what to pair with them besides sandals or t-shirts.  I'm working on a post for that, but if you have more specific questions beyond that about maxi skirts let me know!

    I'm going to do a Summer of Skirts this season so keep these pics coming, girl. I'm gonna need as much inspiration as I can get. And you are a master when it comes to maxis. :D

  4. Awesome look, you look really great!


  5. Love the bright cobalt blue of that top! :) I enjoyed being able to do the "half tuck" with my skirts for the first few months of pregnancy too - it hides the bump well and doesn't look too casual. But yes, when the bump expands there is no more half tuck, haha! :)

    Away From Blue

  6. I really like that top. I like the shape, that's it's not super tight. What's the material?

  7. Such an easy, chic outfit...I love the stripes!

  8. Great outfit!!!!! I love maxi skirts. I wore mine for the first time this weekend. Love the colour of your top.



  9. That's a great outfit. I have been around here for a while now, and I love your style. I think this is the closest I've come to seeing my style on a blog. A few questions:
    1. What do you call your style - any adjectives come to your mind?
    2. As much as I adore your skirt and know it is the answer to the terrible Mumbai heat, I am not sure short (5' 4''), curvy (hip size 32) women can afford to spot large horizontal styles. Any comments?

  10. I've been wanting a maxi since forever. No striped on on the ON site in petite. Grrr... :(

    The links to Target don't work for me. I get this error message: The link you clicked on is malformed. Contact the editor of the originating page.
