Maximize

I could not think of a more appropriate title for this post other than the word 'maximize', I chose the title primarily because I am wearing a maxi skirt. Another reason is because I'm working several trends at the same time with pieces I have not worn in a while. It almost feels like some sort of trend 'Mash-up'.....the bold stripe trend, neon trend and stacked punk rock heels. 












What I am wearing - Skirt: Tjmaxx (similar available at the store in limited qty) ||  
Top: River Island ||  Necklace : Old || Shoes : Wild Pair  || Belt : Forever 21

Now to the story of the outfit, well not much of a story, It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt even though I didn't quite have a picture of what I would do with it. Oftentimes I have an idea of how a piece would fit into what I already have or an inkling of what it could possible go with among my clothes but with this skirt, zilch! nothing of such.

So over the weekend while I was doing some housekeeping I came across this 'long forgotten three years old gorgeousness of a shoe!!!' and that was the light bulb moment. Isn't it cool how you would see a shoe or top or even an accessory and you instantly get an idea of what to wear with it?.

I am all about maximizing my existing wardrobe and looking my best on a budget to keep more money in my pocket. Lets be practical most women do not have a ton of money to spend on shopping for clothes yet we all seem to have a  very common problem " I have nothing to wear!!!".......great idea for a post right? *scurries off to laptop* :).


Just wondering, could the word 'maxi' have been coined from  'maximize'......anyone know?.

Have a fab weekend!

Xoxo

  3. I like the style! I tend to buy clothes at random and coincidentally realize that I have a few other prices at home that could go with that particular item. It's all about mixing and matching for us women, there's no need to go shopping every week to spice up your wardrobe. You've already got the basics, just be creative with what you have! Nice work!

  9. Nice blog + post.

    Not seen Maxi around in recent times, maybe its time again to revisit the long-forgotten trend. Talk about recycling.
