The Creative Closet | Maxi Moment

Hello lovelies!

I am beyond excited to be co-hosting the Creative Closet this week with two of my favorites, Jana and Maegan!

These two wonderful ladies thought up the Creative Closet - a link up to help us push our boundaries in fashion and try new combinations with the items we already have in our closets.
The Creative Closet

This week's prompt was Maxi Moment. Maxi's are something I can get behind for sure! I have several maxi dresses but for this post I chose my favorite skirt of all time. It was my first maxi anything and I never looked back.

Blouse : Macy's ( similar) | Skirt: LOFT (similar) | Belt : Gordmans (similar) | Bag: | Booties : Target (similar)
What I love most about a maxi skirt is you can dress it up or down. I chose to dress up my look a little with a belted, textured, bright pink blouse and heeled booties.

To be honest I had planned on this blue blouse you have seen before. But I have worn it with my maxi before. So I made myself try something else with the skirt. I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out!

This is a perfect work outfit for me as we transition from the hot as blazes weather here into cooler temps. Which couldn't get here soon enough if you ask me!

How do you like to style your maxi skirt? I know you have one in your closet, so pull it out and join the party! Or check out the October prompts and join in with us next week. (I can't believe it's already almost October!)

Here are the details: 

1) Follow your hosts and the week's co-host (first 3 links)

2) Visit and comment on 5 other blogs--because no one likes a link-and-run-er. Plus checking out the other outfits is the half the fun!

3) In your blog post, share either The Creative Closet button or a link back to Jana or Maegan's posts on your blog.

Optional, but you should, because it's cool:

4) Share your look on social media using #thecreativecloset

  1. I really love that last photo! Such a fun angle to shoot from. This look is so classy and put together–but that maxi skirt makes it super comfy too, I bet. You look awesome. Thank you so much for co-hosting this week! :)

  2. Beautiful Lauren! I don't have a maxi skirt, but if I did, I would totally style it like yours. Love the stripes.

  3. I love the mixture of texture and pattern you have going on here! This would be a great day to night look!

  4. I love it! I think it's absolutely perfect with the top and belt you added. Thanks for co-hosting and killing it :)

  5. Love the look! Maxi skirts are in constant rotation in my wardrobe whenever I actually leave my apartment. Super cute but oh so casual and comfy at the same time!

  6. Love the color of the blouse and that you belted it! With the skirt it is all totally cute :)

  7. LOVE the belted blouse look with your maxi! I need to try that! I also love the backdrop - so pretty.

  8. I love the dressed up way you did your maxi! I tend to stick with an all black skirt and chambray shirt, original I know :)
