What Shoes to Wear with a Maxi

top: Target (similar) // skirt: H&M (similar) // hat: Nordstrom (exact) // purse: similar // wedges: similar  // c/o necklace: Melanie Laurene Etsy Shop This top stopped me in my tracks while hunting around at Target a few weeks back. I couldn’t not get it. The embroidery style reminds me all the Norwegian decor in my grandmother’s house. I’m sorry I can’t find a link for it online—it may still be available in your local Target though? Side note: Vanessa & I are obsessed with patterned walls at the moment, see this post. I love this necklace that my Instagram friend Melanie sent me from her adorable Etsy shop. I like the subtilty of the quartz—it would also look great styled over a solid bright colored top. Check out her shop, I’m loving how she prop styles all the necklaces on wood stumps. When I’m considering what shoe to wear with a maxi skirt, this is what goes through my head: 1. Should I wear sandals and risk the skirt dragging all over the floor? 2. I can’t wear heels because the skirt hits too low and would cover them. 3. I need some height because I’m 5’4″ 3. High heels looks too fancy 4. Flats don’t look boho enough The final decision: platform wedges. The platform gives the skirt the right height and the wedge feels laid back enough to vibe with this cotton maxi. What shoe do you wear with a maxi skirt? Have you found a certain type of sandals work best? Help a girl out—I need more maxi styling for the upcoming summer months.

    Ooo girl I love this! {And am so jealous you can even think about wearing this without a coat…} I always end up in flatforms – so basically we’re the same. Seriously. SO. ADORABLE.

    Those shoes are so cute! I adore the polka dot pattern. I don’t really wear maxi skirts because I’m 5’1 and I drown in them, but that’s such a smart decision! I love platform wedges. I really need to get myself a pair of polka dot patterned ones.

    Those polka dot platform wedges are so cute! And what a smart idea about wearing them with maxi skirts. I can’t really wear maxi skirts because I’m 5’1 and I drown in them, but the outfit is adorable. I’m just experiencing some shoe envy here.
