DD's Style File - "Maxi"mum Style

Until this year I wavered on the idea of wearing a maxi skirt to work. For some reason, in my mind it felt a tad too casual, despite the fact that I'd worn a longer length dress a time or two. Then the day came that I dressed a black jersey knit maxi skirt and liked it.

So, I decided to try again.

I bought this skirt a few months back at a bargain price and stuck it in a drawer, and happened upon it the other night. I decided to get some more use out of my white linen blazer and decided to pair the navy print of the skirt with a mustard top and rustic gold tone jewelry.

Mustard tissue tee - Target
Navy & white maxi skirt - Old Navy
Actually I liked this skirt way more than I thought I would, when I grabbed it last minute during my mini shopping spree at Old Navy (courtesy of RetailMeNot, thankyouverymuch).

Pairing it with the blazer made gave it's breezy swishiness a little more refined appeal.

Taking pictures in public is still a bit of a....uh....challenge for me. I get all nervous and fidgety when people drive by and are looking at me. Or you hear little one's say, "mommy/daddy, what's she doing?" As I smile politely, I feel an immediate and intense urge to snatch up my tripod and walk/run my way back to my vehicle. Pathetic, I know!

Taking pictures around the house isn't any better either. Then I figure my neighbors are curiously peeking out of their blinds.

Needless to say, I sometimes have to take several shots just for the sake of not having the oh-gosh-somebody's-watching-me-crazy-look on my face.
