Bloggers Do It Better is a group of fashion bloggers who get together once a month or so to put together a look based on a challenge given by Pretty Shiny Sparkly. She gives us a theme and off we all go to interpret it our own individual way using clothes and accessories that we like.
This is the 5th challenge – although it’s only my first time participating. Our challenge was to create a look wearing a maxi skirt. I was really hoping to find a long, fitted maxi skirt – more along the line of a sheath. Unfortunately, the maxi skirt fashion trend hasn’t made its way here to rural Vermont.
Luckily, I had a maxi skirt I got from eshakti that I could work with. I paired it with some cork wedges from Lindsay Phillips because it’s a little on the long side. I topped it off with a plain white t-shirt from Tresics Femme and a black and blue scarf I already had. I chose nail polish from Orly in the Siren shade to give the outfit a little color. I probably should have tossed in a few pieces of jewelry but honestly, I always forget to put it on.
Here are the pieces I chose for my outfit. I couldn’t find the exact shirt or scarf but these are close.
Stop by Pretty Shiny Sparkly and check out how the other bloggers put together a look using a maxi skirt. What do you think? Does this outfit work or not?
