Very Merrily Maxi


I don't normally like to pair red and green because I feel like it SCREAMS Christmas. But there's a reason these two colors are used together, they look good! They aren't complementary colors for no reason, you know. During the winter I wear mostly the same outfits as in the summer, but with a cardigan.  The last time I wore this skirt, it was for the 4th of July and I burned up all day. I don't really understand why the maxi length is so popular for summer because it can be hot! It feels much nicer today, when the temps are in the low 50s than it did when we were busting into the 100s.



details:
skirt- Max Studio (in oatmeal)
top- estate sale
cardigan- Merona at Target
necklace- What's In Store via StitchFix 

The more I look at it, the more I like this pairing. The green is so dark and the red is almost pink, so it doesn't seem quite as festive. I'll be honest though, I stinking LOVE Christmas...I wish the halls could be decked in red and green all year round. Maybe as we get closer to the holiday, I will wear more of this color combo. Do you guys ever pair red and green? Does it make you feel jolly and bright?

I really like the style and color of the skirt! To me the long skirt looks more like Fall & Winter than Summer. Just like you said, you can get extremely hot in that length of skirt I would’ve never thought of pairing pink with green, but on you, these two colors look very festive and elegant. The choice in jewelry is just about perfect too, the necklace adds a nice touch of “bling” to your outfit
