SLIDER

california chick

crop sweater + maxi skirt + rings: brandy melville, tote bag: zara, shoes: steve madden, sunglasses: h&m

The knotted maxi is back again. I feel like everything about this outfit is just sooo southern California. I actually saw a girl this morning on my Starbucks trip (in which I ordered a grande instead of the usual venti, instant regret #addictedtocaffeine) wearing almost the exact same outfit, except with wedges which she was teetering on. I don't know about you, but I have no interest in being uncomfortable at 9:30 AM on a Saturday. This sort of pairing was fundamental during the previous school year. I probably wore some sort of maxi no less than 3 times a week. These are pieces that while getting dressed this morning I thought "why the heck have I not wear these in a while?!" The sandals are my loves from high school. To be honest, ever since I have converted to the bootie life, I haven't looked back. For the most part, when it comes to buying sandals-- I'm as picky as Cher Horowitz and the usual gladiators and flimsy t-straps simply don't appeal to me. Hence why I am hanging onto these beat up babies.

I posted a week or two ago about how I wanted a more brown based bag and this was the answer to alllll my prayers plus some. I hate flying yet I am so excited for my flight next month simply to see how much shit I can cram into this bag. The thing is seriously so spacious.

  1. I seriously envy your current location of Southern California, I'm waiting for it to get warmer here in NJ so that I can bust out sandals. Sigh...

    Well, I really like how you pulled off this look...it's one I've tried but haven't quite mastered...maybe I'll have another go at it! Also, glad to know you found a bag :)

  4. I love the knotted maxi, there's something about it that looks really chic! And omg I totally hear you on the heels front, why do that to yourself on a weekend?

  5. I totally need a maxi dress, but I can't seem to find a perfect one that reaches past my ankles and knots while still being able to walk in it. I know complicated. And the sun with palm trees in your photos look so great, I'm feigning for warm sun & trees with leaves. I wanna be a California Chick! haha

  9. Love the knotted maxi! And I couldn't agree with you more; I'd totally opt for a pair of flats over wedges on a Saturday morning.

  14. I miss socal!!! Good idea, tying a knot on maxi dresses! I don't have any, but that's a great idea!

    Yes, the walking on eggshells is a good trio to start with. I don't like the crease color that much though..its too light for me i guess and all of them are shimmery. Nice to add some matte while wearing it.

  36. As I was reading your post, a thought of how I will start my comment grew stronger in me. What I wanted to say was "I seriously envy your Southern California weather!" Then I saw the first comment. Ah well, who said I'm any original?:)
    I love you in maxi skirts. In general, maxi looks great on girls, on you specifically, in my opinion! and - love the sandals, I can tell why you wear them over and over again.

  45. that's an awesome bag - i am glad you found one! And i'm loving the maxi. I have a bootie problem also - mine are so comfortable (except one black pair, they are too stiff) but most of my heels are like comfort heels, let's be honest. I love the shoes you are wearing, but those would look awful on me. I have problems with stuff like that and my ankles, i just can't do it!
