One item of clothing you don’t have to think about buying is the maxi skirt. There are so many things about the maxi skirt that make it such a great wardrobe staple. I love how super versatile it is! You can wear it all year round and there are so, so, so, many ways to style it. In the winter, you can pair it with a sweater and boots, while in the summer, pair it with a crop top and sandals. Dress it up or dress it down, OMG the possibilities! Not to mention maxi skirts are super comfortable. They’re easy to move in and flow so smoothly, making it ultra-feminine but also ultra-functional.
I look for things that are a step up from your basic items or put a little twist on them. If you know me by now I gravitate towards pieces that are unique or make a subtle statement. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big impact and transform an outfit from 0 to 60! So are you ready to take the maxi skirt TO THE MAX?! This maxi skirt is one of my favorite pieces to wear and this whole look makes me feel like I could slay anything in my path.
Flynn Skye is the maker of this extra special maxi. The brand is designed in Venice, California and made right here in the USA, Los Angeles to be exact. Here’s to supporting local businesses! I’m a fan of their bohemian spirited dresses and jumpsuits. What makes this maxi skirt truly unique are the shoulder straps. From the front they look like suspenders which gives it a little masculine edge to an otherwise feminine skirt. The straps are also able to be worn criss-crossed in the back to give you versatility. In addition, buttons line the front of the skirt. If those things weren’t enough did you notice the slit in front? It’s sexy enough to show a little leg when you walk but not too sexy that it exposes too much. OMG, slay!

Of course it would be nice to strut down Abbott Kinney in this skirt in a crop top and sandals but I’m currently dressing for the pacific northwest winter (it’s not so bad really). This skirt may be meant for the beach setting but as you can see, pairing it with a sweater and boots make it appropriate for the grey Seattle winter or anywhere else not 70 degrees and sunny! Here I layered the skirt with a light heather grey sweater (similar one here). It gives you a little contrast with the black skirt without being so polar. I wore black suede booties to keep it uniform and to accessorize I wore my favorite initial necklace (D for my son, similar here) and black leather hobo bag (similar here). I’m a big bohemian at heart so I got to unleash my inner bohemian with this outfit!
So there you have it. Hope you’ll take your next skirt to the max!
