Zara sweater / H&M dress and shoes / vintage hat
photos by Daniel
I'm totally hooked on wearing maxi skirts. I always thought I couldn't wear them cause I'm not that tall, but since I bought my first one at Monki a while ago, I really fell in love. I bought two more this week! Oh, I just love shopping the sales. I should promise myself to never shop non-sale anymore.

The skirt is a dress from H&M, you might have seen it around. I liked it so much except for the ruffles on the shoulders so I took those off. Now I can wear it under sweaters and cardigans.

P.S. excuse the hat being in every single outfit recently. It's the best accessory in rainy Amsterdam.

je vintage hat is echt zo zo zo geweldig! ik vind het zeker niet erg dat het in bijna elke outfit post voorkomt :) en je sweater is ook zo leuk!

thank u for stopping by, your blog is adorable!!!!! and i agree with u, i thought id never where them either but i now have 3 maxi skirts and 4 maxi dresses lol they are just so easy to wear.

i wish i had your rust colour one though :(

I bought a long skirt at H&M but finally brought it back, I love them but can't seem to actually wear them! It is still very inspiring and tempting when I see someone with one. And your look definitely is motivating to have another try!

OH I nearly bought that dress but I didn't think I'd wear it. I loved the ruffles but taking them off definitely makes it more wearable. Oh I want it now! Damn.

Thanks everyone!

@Ismay They're really easy to take off if you do it carefully. I just thought it made it look like a party dress and I wanted it to be more casual. Here it's still in stores everywhere for 15€; nothing! I even got it for 10€ cause they tagged it wrong!

Liz said...

gah! i almost bought that sweater a few months ago and now i am full of regret. i am in love with this outfit. long skirts suit you!

Dylana Suarez said...

I am obsessed with maxi skirts, too! I cannot seem to stop wanting to buy one every time I come across a new one. You look amazing in them, and love the way you style them with pretty sweaters! I need to try this more, once the weather starts cooling off. It's so warm today where I am it, I am in just a sheer dress and sandals!

I am so inspired by you!

So jealous of your maxi skirt. I bought one similar last week, but it didn't suit me at all so I had to take it back x

Laura @ The World Looks Red said...

@Liz: Thanks! But actually, after wearing it for a while the sweater gets quite itchy, so I'm not sure about it anymore...

@Dylana, thanks so much, you're so lovely!

@Vicky: Unfortunately maxi skirts aren't for everyone but it also takes some getting used to; I'm not that tall (1.66cm) but I think they look okay anyway as long as I wear heels!

I love that sweater. Absolutely gorgeous and perfect for cold weather. The hat, I'm jealous.

The skirt is beautiful, but the jumpers stolen my heart. x

Orphaned Apparel said...

Yup, non-sale shopping is a foreign concept to me. It's so fun treasure hunting and simultaneously saving money!

Love this look on you! Beautiful pieces. I still can't even bring myself to *consider* a maxi skirt, probably because I went to a private school where skirts where required on Wednesday, and they had to be long. I've never recovered. lol.

I've never given the maxi skirt a try, but maybe I'll have to be kind enough to try again. I, too, also love a good H&M find and some of their simplistic pieces are perfect for ensembles!

love the combination!
:]

Spijtig genoeg ben ik niet fan van het woord maxi. Wel vind ik dat het niet opvallend is dat je klein bent :)
Je blog groeit wel heel erg snel, keep up the good work!
