1 Maxi 3 Days || Day 3

The final day of the 1 Maxi 3 Days event hosted by Ashley from Bramblewood Fashion!  

I wore way more solid black on top than I had originally planned to with this skirt. However, during this challenge I realized I own a while lot more solid black tops than I thought I did! 

I wanted to wear my skirt today with my shirt tucked in because it has a nice waist band and I rarely wear my tops tucked into anything. There was a breeze when I went to take photos outside so my shirt looks a little shorter than where it actually fell when I was inside. Anyway, still not a fan of the tucked in shirt. I don't know why,  I have just never really liked it.

Thanks to all who have read and commented the past few days! It's so much fun reading what you have to say!

1 Maxi 3 Days || Day 2

Today I sort of had it in mind to wear my skirt as a dress even though I pulled out a shirt when I was putting the outfit together. The elastic on this skirt fits so well that I didn't feel like I needed a tank top underneath and the cardigan made it unnecessary as well, so it was a strapless "dress." I was actually surprised at how much I liked the look! I would never have tried it if I hadn't take part in Ashely's challenge from her blog, http://www.bramblewoodfashion.com.


Skirt: Family Dollar
Belt: Charlotte Russe
Cardigan: gift
Shoes: I got them so long ago that I can't remember!!

1 Maxi 3 Days || Day 1

I bought this knit, houndstooth maxi at, believe it or not, Family Dollar. They actually had quite a few different styles last time I was there so I had a pretty hard time choosing. The wide waistband makes this skirt incredibly comfortable and the length is perfect for a taller person. I can wear the waistband at my natural waist and the skirt still brushes the tops of my feet!



Yesterday, (it wouldn't have been practical to wear a maxi skirt to work today) I wore one of the most comfortable outfits ever! The black shirt I'm wearing was purchased at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago, the pink tank top is from Target, and the shoes are from Payless. 

I didn't put much thought into this ensemble and hadn't ever worn it before. I just grabbed the skirt out of my closet and the black t-shirt happened to be at the from of my dresser drawer. The tank top is one that I often wear with the shirt. This is definitely something I will wear again it is SO comfortable!
