Colima And See What I Did


Last year, Anthropologie sold the Colima Skirt. It came in many colors. I believe the final count was six. But I could be wrong.

I bought two of them. And then I could not figure out how to style the darn things. The skirts were pretty. But the hem that I thought I would like, proved to be a challenge. And they were a bit too clingy and see through.

The other day, I had an epiphany.

Why not wear them together?

Why not create the hem I wanted by layering the two together?


So I did.


I love them worn this way. Together they have become my favorite maxi skirt.


And the spin factor cannot be beat.


Trust me.


If you missed out on the Colima Skirt last year at Anthropologie, you are not out of luck. Modcloth is carrying an incredibly similar version of it in blue. They call it Sway by the Sea Skirt. It is $49.99. The original price for the Colima Skirt was $118. I am trying to decide if I need another layer to mix up the colors. Because that price is great.

I have also seen this skirt being sold in a variety of colors on eBay.

The top was a random clearance find at Nordstrom Rack last spring. It is by Cloth and Stone. You can find similar chambray shirts here and here.

Have you ever layered two skirts together? Did you end up liking the end result? What other top could I pair with these skirts?

Seasonal Transition Maxi Skirts Part I

Hi guys! I had a post prepared for three maxi skirt looks I have put together recently. Unfortunately I am on my way to a play and ran out of time to download all of the pictures. I figured I will post the rest tomorrow night when I get the chance. So either tomorrow or Sunday will have two posts as I play catch up.

I love a maxi. I think you can carry it into every season.



The Ping Maxi Skirt is one of my favorites. I think a pop of just about any color works with it. Although, it is great with lace and denim as well. The other day I paired it with a simple mustard layering top from H & M. The necklace is Betsy Johnson via Nordstrom Rack.

What is your favorite maxi in your closet?
