Chucks & Maxis

April 29, 2014
I’ve been on a maxi skirt kick lately!  
So why not add some fun kicks to my look?!

Striped skirt, black cami, burgundy cardi…

Carlos Santana handbag.

Converse sneakers, of course!

Next look …. 
Same sneakers and bag.

Studio M maxi skirt & Lucky denim jacket.

The graphic tee is a souvenir from the Goodguys car show!

Love the way the classic car image wraps around the side.

  What’s your favorite way to style a maxi for a casual look?

Hope everyone is enjoying their springtime!

Maxi Love & Other Mid-April Looks

April 15, 2014

Hello fashion dolls!  I’ve been a busy little teacher lately. This post is a pot luck of looks from the last week or so.  Starting with some maxi skirt love ….

Same skirt as the skirt in this post.  But I added my orange Old Navy jean jacket for a pop of color!  And sandals for the nice warm weather that we’re having in Cali right now.

And introducing my work bestie, Lynn, showing her adorable maxi skirt look! 
Teachers really need Starbucks before work.
Trust me.  

Love the coral top with the gorgeous fuchsia MK bag! What a cutie pie!

Here’s another maxi outfit from this week.  My new Studio M black maxi from Macy’s on sale here.  (I tried on about 20 skirts at the mall last week and this one was the winner .. the right length and it has a nice flow). 

A long boyfriend jacket is comfy addition and gives a little booty coverage if desired!  (This one from Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s several years ago.)

I’ve had this H&M crochet cardigan for a couple of years and still love it for spring and summer.  The lovely lace scarf was a present from a dear friend.
How do you like this Lanvin scarf?  It was a thrift store find … $5!
And the last one for today …
Loving my new Seychelles sandals!  Available here! They jazz up this simple tee, jeans, and cardi combo.

Hope all my favorite fashionistas are having a great week! 

I sure am looking forward to spring break next week!

Color-blocked Neutrals & New Riding Boots

April 3, 2014
I styled this outfit around my Oryany color-block handbag that is quickly becoming my favorite bag.
(Instead of Where’s Waldo, we could start playing Where’s Rox and Lucky in my photos!)

I went with Gap Always Skinnies, such a wardrobe staple for me.  I added a black cowl neck sweater from INC and my ivory moto jacket to echo the colors in the purse.

I accessorized with mixed metal hoop earrings.  And of course big sunnies!

I also was excited to style my new Nine West American Vintage riding boots, recently bought at an end of the season clearance at DSW.  I love boots and always look for deals this time of year, but usually my size (7) sells out pretty quickly. I was thrilled to find this pretty pair!  And love the way they look with my bag!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

HIWM: Striped maxi skirt

April 2, 2014
I created this outfit and post for the “How I Wear My” series, hosted by “The Rich Life On a Budget” Adrienne and “Everything Just So” Jill.  Check out the fun here
This month’s challenge was styling a skirt.  I found this black and white striped beauty at Marshall’s at the end of the summer last year.  I’ve always worn it with sandals in warm weather, but decided to try it with boots and loved it!

With the skirt and boots, I added a plain white tee and my new Lucky Brand denim jacket.
For a fun touch of summer to come, I added this silver sand dollar necklace, a favorite of mine, from Kohl’s.

And I always love a pop of red and big sunnies!

I love a maxi skirt and I’m also excited to see midi length skirts coming back in style.  What skirt length is your favorite?
