I visited Old Navy this past weekend because I got an email from them saying that they were having an AMAZING sale. They weren't kidding! (Note to all bargain shoppers...sign up for all retail emails, it's totally worth it.) I found this great maxi skirt (among other things) for $7! Since I'm trying to think of ways that I can maximize its appearances, I figured I'd let you in on some of my ideas...
With these photos as my inspiration, I decided that one outfit will for sure include my (faux) leather jacket.

|I love my leather riding boots and think they would pair perfectly with this outfit. In order to add some color, I'm thinking my autumn orange scarf from H&M and some colorful earthy jewelry. Can't wait to fight the chill in this outfit!|
|I want to pair my new maxi with a chunky cable sweater...I think this outfit does it! I thought it needed some help with other items, though, so I added a denim shirt to layer underneath the sweater, a poppy colored necklace to layer on top of it all, some colorful bracelets, and finally, wedge boots in a rusty hue. Comfy comfy.|
|Lastly, I couldn't leave out my denim jacket or a turtleneck. For this outfit, I decided to include both! I am beyond thrilled that turtlenecks are not only "in" this season, but totally acceptable with almost anything. I am a lover and forever follower of the black turtleneck. It is a great addition to any outfit to look put together and styled in an instant.|
For this outfit, I went with a black tissue turtleneck (for layering purposes), my denim jacket, a cozy ivory sweater scarf, long pendant necklace to peek out from under the scarf, and wedge loafers to elevate the look a little. I think a wedge heel goes nicely with this combo...keeps it from being too laid back and yet is still casual.
I am definitely looking forward to wearing my maxi skirt. This may just be one of my outfits for tomorrow! Takes the guesswork out of getting dressed in the morning, if you ask me!
