Summer Heat Outfit - How to wear a maxiskirt


It seems like the whole country is under a crazy heatwave! Austin has been particularly hot and it has been a tough adjustment with my wardrobe, since my go to piece - jeans - are impossible to deal with in the heat.

So this has been my recipe for dealing with the hot weather:

Maxi skirt - made by me
Tank: Banana Republic
Shoes: Havaianas
Neckalce: Artisan from Brazil
Bangles: from random travels

Maxiskirts are a little tricky, because there is so much color and print to look at. That is why I loved pairing it with a very simple tank top, several bangles in the same color family as the skirt, and a funky necklace (this one is made of fishnets discarded by local fishermen in Brazil, then dyed and twisted to make this pretty necklace). 

I chose havaianas for the feet, but I think nice chunky wedges like those below would go great too! These were from Madewell.

The sangria was deliciously refreshing and simple! I love the smell of fresh citrus!
