Wear, oh wear ...

Maxi skirt

I felt compelled to showcase an option to MAXI-mize summer's IT-skirt -the maxi- and transition it into fall.

This lightweight polyester-cotton blend skirt from Forever 21 is the perfect weight to sail into the cooler months.

Because I'm wide in the shoulders and in the hips, I wanted to create a larger silhouette on the top in order to streamline the look through the middle.

I chose a men's Perry Ellis tailored shirt in a crisp white and anchored the look with a thick, black leather, corset belt from Nordstrom.

A chunky pendant by Alexis Bittar adds a bit of glamour and polish.

To me, there are a nearly limitless amount of acceptable shoes options for an outfit such as this. If it's still warm but a little windy, a great pair of gladiators would work. If the weather has thoroughly transitioned into fall, then some kick-butt combat boots would add a killer, 90's vibe.

Because let's face it ... nobody like to lose their summer staple to the summer!
