It's time for another Bloggers Do It Better Challenge and I've switched up my hemline to a maxi. Don't tell anyone, but I had to fudge some details to make this outfit happen. Up until this year, the only thing maxi in my closet was one dress from Forever 21. Now I have three, but there are no skirts to be found. So instead of going out and buying something completely new, I took one of my skirts, folded it in, and fancied up myself a semi- paperbag waist, maxi skirt. It's amazing what you can come up with in a pinch.
I think orange and blue make for a great combination, so I took this tee out of hiding and paired it up with my new maxi. A bit of fancy bling and the Eugenia Kim hat that I stalked the stores for last year added some nice touches. I think they were all major touches to an outfit that's just missing one minor "technical" detail of not having a real waistband.
