Maxied Out

I know that Everybody, Everywhere isn't until tomorrow morning, but I decided that since I do my posts at night, perhaps the timing would be better if I did them the day before.

This time was much harder for me than the others... because I'm really not a maxi person. I definitely do not possess anything of longer lengths that fits into the realm of casual, so I had to do my best to tone down this purple dress.

do your best? stop it. you look awesome. i love the top knot too! you're hair looks adorable up (and down too). i'm seeing that essie polish everywhere, but saw it here first!

Della said...

Holy cow, you look amazing! Your hair goes perfectly with the outfit. And that dress is soo pretty. I love the sheer/net ruffles.

Such a pretty skirt!! I love the tulle on the bottom, it was so unexpected as I scrolled down. The leather jacket really offsets the flowy, girly skirt well!

xo, Ashley

Closet Fashionista said...

You did such a good job with this - I love the mixing of the harder jacket with the super girly maxi, the whole thing just comes together so well!

My favorite part of the outfit? Your incredible top knot!!! It is stellar.

Jess said...

This outfit look amazing! I love the tulle at the bottom of the dress!

Mrs. J said...

Lovely, I'm not a maxi person either. You did a great mixing feminine and edgy with the motorcycle jacket. I love the 2 tiers on that dress as well.

Anne said...

Wow, this looks great on you! Why don't you have more maxis? It really works for you.

I'm going to have to sit this ebew out because I don't own anything longer than knee-length. That surprises me, since I used to have tons of really long skirts.

TrophyBoutique said...

I love this look on you! It's different that your usual, but it still works. I think the jacket does a nice job of balancing the frill.

Eli said...

I absolutely adore the second picture (and the outfit, and the hair). I have a similar jacket that I often throw on to tone down overly girly dresses. I'm showing this to my mom to prove that I'm not the only person who does it. :)

Kavery said...

This looks wonderful; the top knot,the dress, the jacket, I could go on...:)

DaniellaBella said...

Crikey Malone! That purple skirt is something else. It looks like it's from a fairytale! I have exactly 1 long dress and it's plain black... Maybe I can muster something interesting up for tomorrow...

Hazel☺ said...

looking diva!! :) i like the end part of the dress the most :D

You don't need to tone it down - it's a great length on you!

I really like how different that skirt looks with the tiered effect. And the eggplant color is beautiful on you!

These pictures are sooo light and beautiful! LOVE them!

Rebecca said...

This round was hard for me too, since I'm not great at styling maxis. That skirt is really pretty, and I think you did well.

Silver Strands said...

You might want to think about becoming a maxi person - you look great!

Anna said...

What a cool skirt! I love the layered bottom.

jeanofalltrades said...

This is a great look! The lavendar with black is a nice contrast (so are the materials - I like the soft flowy dress with the biker jacket. You keep it from getting too "dressy.") Terrific!

à la Modest said...

but this maxi is so gorgeous on you! You should wear more! I don't actually own a lot of maxis (maybe 1 or 2), but they're surprisingly flattering, aren't they? The tier of purple looks pretty too.

Bre said...

I love the draping and cut of your dress. Paired with the texture of the leather jacket you look dangerously hot.
Cheers,
Bre

Melanie said...

Love that you styled your girlie dress with that leather jacket. You are so cool :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

I love your hair like that! Yeah, I really like that dress and the darker ruffle peeping out of the bottom. Way cool with that jacket too! I should have worn a long skirt and sandals today... I decided open toed sandals and tights were a good idea. Soggy feet :(

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

This feminine/edgy touch is so cool! I just love it and your hair is perfect! You did great,girl!

Amber Blue Bird said...

love the ruffles on your dress. I dont own a maxi dress either, its hard to find one for a petite gal

Julie said...

I definitely get what you mean; I'm not a maxi person either.

You totally work it though! This whole outfit is gorgeous. Love the color of that dress as well!

lilacpurplesky said...

OH this is such a beautiful dress, you look so chic and beautiful... I love the shoes as well. It fits perfectly.

rlutz said...

Such an amazing dress...love the fabulous hem...great how you styled it with the tough leather jacket!!

kelseywilliams said...

I agree that the longer skirt and dress lengths are trickier to style. You did great! I love how you wore this dress as a skirt!

just when i thought i couldn't get enough of you, you go ahead and become my #100 follower. so happy it was you since i follow your blog regularly! you just made my day- and trust me, it was a seriously epic awful day. so thank you :)

Kate said...

This skirt is absolutely gorgeous! And I definitely think it counts as a Maxi. I myself am a little terrified of the maxi, though I really want to try it. I just don't know where to begin. I think I should just throw something on and see if it works!

That dress is made of awesome. I get a (modern)Stevie Nicks vibe from it. Great look.
