Maxed Out

Your girlfriend/bestie invites you over for dinner, out for drinks, shopping, or your man (love interest, hubby, boo, whatever you call your significant other) invites you to a movie or over his friends house and….. WHAT DO I WEAR?? The fashionable dilemma we all face. (Hashtag my life.) Next comes my libra problems of making an outfit decision. This week I bring to you a both easy and stylish look. Lets check it out..

Long live the maxi skirt! It’s easy to throw on a dress, or even a maxi dress, except for some reason they require so much more thought. With less to work with your accessories have to be on “fleek” LOL but really they do have to be perfectly coordinated. The easier choice for me is the maxi skirt/moderately cropped top. Maxi skirts are a no-brainer – it doesn’t matter what the weather’s like; they keep you cool if it’s hot and warm if its cool/windy.

    I’m currently refusing to leave the house without my extremely pink trench coat. Even if it is 20 degrees Celsius outside! (It’s not that warm in the morning!)

    The bag reminds me of Ted Baker 🙂

        I like Ted Baker (mainly because of the bow!). It’s über cute. Didn’t buy much clothes this time in UK, but I’m pleased with the things that I did buy.

        Challenging myself to wear bright colors.

        I’m mainly white, grey, black, dark blue and jeans. I haven’t put it up there yet. But I’m guessing it will be in my monthly favorites:)
