skirting the issue

Recently I’ve been really trying to build my closet with pieces that can transfer from season to season, sticking with basics that can be worn a lot of different ways. So recently I went on one of my thrifting adventures and found this maxi skirt that I love (and belt and watch – it was a fruitful trip :) )

There are so many things I love about maxi skirts, they are so comfortable and versatile – perfect for mama style! The elasticated waist is a HUGE bonus since it will be perfect to wear during pregnancy, and the busy pattern means that stains (a hazard of having a 1 and 3 year old!) are easily hidden.
This was actually taken a few months ago during the summer so I was wearing flip flops, but it’s gonna be a great fall/winter pick with tights and boots.

I also have been trying to expand my accessories collection because I love the trend of layering jewelry.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember to throw on accessories as I run out of the door with the two kiddos, but I’ve really found that having an organized(ish) place to hold all my jewelry that I can run to and pick from is a really easy way to add a little spice to a simple outfit.
