A little off-duty style this Friday to welcome both the weekend, and the warm weather months that (I promise) are just around the corner. It’s hard not to start feeling a little warmer just perusing all of the spring styles that are hitting stores right now like this floral maxi skirt.
So take the hint, winter. We’re over you.
As you can see, I had fun with the pattern play of the skirt against the striped sleeveless mock neck sweater. Especially while the seasons are in transition, I’m a huge fan of taking lighter spring and summer pieces—like this skirt—and mixing them with heavier pieces—like knitwear and leather. The edge of the leather jacket perfectly tempers the light, über feminine floral maxi skirt, making for a combination that packs both a practical (hello, it’s still cold-ish) and aesthetically pleasing punch.
Whether you’re dressing up or just running errands, there are few pieces more versatile and (more importantly) comfortable than a maxi skirt. If you’re a fan of the one I’m featuring today, just take a look at this guy and try not to pass out. I’m chomping at the bit to add that one to my collection as well. And here I thought I wasn’t big on floral…
