River view

This is the first time I've dared to wear a maxi without a pair of heels. I'm not totally sold on the ankle length skirt with the ankle-chopping flat sandals, perhaps they were a poor choice.
I am however, loving the mix of coral and orange and the tribal print top; also my "lazy gal's fish bone braid" - I only went half way down then gave up.
Coral and Orange
This isn't a view of the river I see too often, since technically I'm on private property of the condo complex I'm "trespassing" in. I'm not really clear on trespassing laws... I don't think anyone would just come up and ask me if I lived there, and even if someone did, couldn't I just say I was visiting a friend?

P.S. I've added a couple new things to the blog shop, lowered prices, and really, just want to get rid of stuff. Many things are $5, but if you wanted to offer $3, or even $2... So yeah,

The skirt looks great on you and the color is lovely! I haven't been fully sold on the style for myself as well...

I love maxis with flats, myself. Wearing heels with maxis seems too formal for me.

I love the color of your skirt! I don't know if it's the bright skirt or your accessories, but this outfit seems reminiscent of the late 80's/early 90's style (not sure if you were going for that), but updated to current day.

Londyn said...

You look fabulous and I adore your hair!!

Rachel said...

You look so sweet together! I really like the laid-back feeling of this outfit; the hair really suits it, too. :D

I love that printed top, so nice. -xo

Such pretty shots! Totally worth a trespassing ticket for. I don't work in criminal law, or I'd fill you in ;-) I love the coral and tribal print and you make a "lazy girl fishbone braid look great!"

Danielle said...

Lazy or not, I love the braid.

I am in love with that tribal print top! I would definitely wear flats with maxi's with the exception with the skirt being too long. If it is, then I wouldn't wear straight-up formal heels but maybe a nice casual sandal wedge, especially in this warm weather. :)

I recently wore a maxi with flats for the first time too... and I'm still unsure if I like it on me or not. I really like this skirt though, maybe you'll like it more with a different pair of flat shoes? Next time!

Alex Elizabeth said...

P.S. I think it would look really good with the chevron top too!

Sneaky trespassing! I love it! :) Annnd your puppy is sooo cute!!! x

I wore a maxi today with flats as well and actually liked it better than the orginal look with heels. I think the flats are perfect for the skirt and the 'feel' of the outfit today...as well as the 'lazy' braid.

I love the colours and patterns of this outfit- perfect for a summer walk (even if it is on provate property ;)

I also think the fishtail braid is so cute- I need to try that! Now off to check out your blog shop!

Courtney Erin said...

I think you're totally working the flats with the maxi - seriously, it works! Also, I love that you're technically trespassing...you're a bad ass.

Orange and coral I love! I'm with you on the maxi skirts I have one but for some reason I don't like it very much with flats, but it's also very comfortable so sometimes comfy wins over flattering. =)

Kristin said...

Love those sunnies lady! Happy 4th!

Gaby de Modacapital said...

Amazing look , I love the skirt and the bag :)
Kisses!

TrophyBoutique said...

Gorgeous colors yet again. I really never crave long hair in general, but do every time I see your braid! If I had long hair I would need a tutorial from you!

StyleID said...

What a beautiful skirt color, Loving the shirt pattern as well .... I know the feeling of the flats with maxi skirts, I feel a little weird in them maybe BC I am not used to but you really look very cute with that outfit.

Loving this outfit! I'm actually a huge fan of the cut of the skirt. It seems to be a perfect length to wear everyday.

Cee said...

I haven't been brave enough to pair a maxi with flats, either, but I think you just may have convinced me! As a fellow not-particularly-tall person, I have many (possibly irrational) fears about clothes that might make me look short. But you look exactly like yourself in these photos, no shorter or taller :) Plus I just love that colour of coral on you, it suits you perfectly.
