Outfit Post: In the Red Times Two

Jul 19, 2013

First off, it’s way to hot out.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, thankfully it’s Friday which means the weekend is only a few short hours away. This weekend I’m heading to Lexington for a friend’s wedding (where I will be sure to snap tons of style spotting pics) and then I’ve got Monday off to take a little day trip up to Holiday World with a pal (I am seriously excited – I love love love a good amusement park).

After taking these pics, I realized that I should have donned a tee instead of a tank under the vest but oh well. I grabbed this maxi skirt a few weeks back and still have been trying to find the perfect things to pair with it. Here I gave it too go’s but I’m still looking for the right mix. I think my problem is that it’s the weird length on me that I can’t pair it with heels (it also may be something about where the waistband hits).

So here’s a look at my first couple attempts. One’s a little preppier (and America theme) and the other is a little more casual. What do you all think?

I’ll keep trying to find the perfect pairing item but until then, here you go.

    I just tried this skirt on at BR this week! (It did not look nearly as good on me, but you are rocking it!) Lovely, as always. -Laura

    Love the way you paired the skirt with that jean vest and I am obsessed with that horn necklace! I’ve been looking for a similar one for a while!
