I'd been eyeing this plaid maxi skirt at work for the past several weeks, and finally the combination of cabin fever (thanks, Snowstorm 2011!) and the onset of the semiannual Squash Blossom half-off sale had me beelining for the rack the first day I could leave the house. The recent onslaught of emails announcing maxi skirts are continuing to be in for Spring confirmed it; I need this piece in my wardrobe.
I think I can find a few reasons to wear it all the time. It's surprisingly versatile--at first I thought it might be too Victorian because of the length, but this maxi is a bit of a chameleon! I think Free People has the right idea:
Rocker chic with leather
Romantic with lace and fur
Or edgy with biker boots and a statement belt.

Here's how I wore it. Anything look familiar?
Prairie Underground Long Cloak Hoodie
CP Shades Fanny maxi skirt
Frye Carson pull on boot
I didn't realize I had repeated the top and boot combo until I started editing these photos! Isn't it funny how swapping out just a few pieces can change the entire vibe of an outfit? If only everything I owned could transform from business casual to witchy woman, then I'd be set for spring!
