Wine and olives

Here is the maxi in the alternate color, 'winter wine' which is definitely the color of this fall.
I am all about being comfy and cozy on these cold, grey days - so that is what this outfit is.

The one aspect I dislike of this maxi skirt is the really wide yoke, which you can't see because I've taken care to conceal it. It certainly won't be hard to layer things over it, though I really would like to have the option to tuck things. Perhaps I can just hide the yolk under a wide belt...

Great color combo and I agree with the wide yoke dilemma.. I am not a fan of those either and am more of a 'tuck it in' kinda girl with the ultimate accessory of a wide belt!!
I love this outfit on you and you have concealed the waistline well!

Alissa said...

I hate that issue that I often have with maxi skirts. The yoke can be so awkward and adds bulk in my opinion! Two things that you never want!

Shea Sayers said...

Okay, I like all your maxi skirts but this one is hands down my favorite! That color! And it's gorgeous with that olive green top.

LOVE the color combination! such great colors to transition into fall - and your outfit looks so comfy, which is such a major plus in the cold temperatures

So many great colours! And I love you much you're rocking maxis these days. We got 31 cm of snow here yesterday so my maxi wearing days are over a bit I think but it's nice that I can live vicariously through you.

LYDDIE this is such a beautiful outfit oh my goodness. Grey and olive are seriously the most stunning colors on you~ that necklace against the green is seriously picture perfect. Gonna stick you on my tumblr now (with credit of course ;D).

And I love that bracelet!

FASHION TALES said...

You've done well at concealing the wide yoke. I think this is a beautifull maxi skirt. Definitely love the wine and olive colours together. Happy weekend. xx/Madison

Absolutely lovely combination. Wine and Olive, I'd never have thought of that.

I love this outfit :) The olive top pairs very well with the maroon skirt! I would have never thoght of this combo :) x

Melina said...

I just looove that skirt, such a pretty color! It looks great paired with olive too.

Also, I don't know if it will work, but one of my maxi skirts is like that and when I want to tuck in a shirt I sort of fold the yoke down (in half) and then put a belt over that. If that makes sense?

Katie Q. said...

I went and looked at these skirts and I just couldn't figure out how to get past the yoke problem. (Why do they even put those on skirts? So unflattering!) I can't even see the yoke on your skirts and after seeing you style both, I think I might have to go back and see if I can make them work.
I love that soft blazer, it looks so cozy and warm, perfect for the colder weather!

Jessica Gitler said...

love the skirt, I just ordered two myself and hope I love them as much as you do!

you always get the best breezy wind photos. Whenever the wind hits me I look like I'm being mauled by a freezing cold tiger.

Maxi skirts are definitely your thing, they look so good on you, I didn't think they were so versatile but you've proved me wrong because they look good in any season.

Great color combination! Maxi skirts always look so good on you, I wish I could pull them off :(

Cee said...

I would never have thought to pair olive green with this dark fuschia wine shade, but the combination is lovely! However, I am distracted by your blazer, which I absolutely adore. The black piping on the gray is an amazing detail.

I just got a purple maxi, though not exactly this color. Wonder if it would look good with olive? I think I'm going to have to try it!
