Embracing Maximal Trend

Posted on: October 19, 2016

I’ve always referred to my style as maximal, 

but this season it’s an official trend!  

How does one embrace Fall Maximalism when the temperatures are LIKE Summer? 

Check out the Lovely Ladies at the “I Feel Pretty Link Up”

My private style sisters group suggested styling a skirt and with all the fun

talk regarding the maximal trend on a fashion forum, 

I knew just what skirt needed to come out to play! 

This multi media  OSO Casuals skirt is on clearance for $18.99 and comes in 4 great colors perfect for Fall.  It’s hard to see , but the bottom is lace and there are two panels of embroidery on top of the embossed floral material.  That itself qualifies this as a maximal piece.

You can see the lace bottom better in this photo.  

I paired it with another maximal piece of the my polka dot sweater with ruffle detail . 

I’ve had that for a few years and it still remains a favorite sweater. 

My metallic pointed toe low wedges are a thrifted find.

A “blingy”  necklaces also ups the maximal level.  

My necklace is a Susan Graver from previous seasons , but Here are her current ones available . 

You can see the ruffle detail in my sweater better in this photo.

I finished it off with my cute owl cuff bracelet that I found awhile back on Ebay. 

You can see a peek of my new nail color a fun red -orange shade.

I got acrylics for my cruise, a first for me and DH loved the idea of my keeping them.

I finished this maximal look off with my GILI ( stands for Got it Love it ) 

obi belt and hobo style purse (sold out from previous seasons ) .  

Dear Readers, I love these Fall colors and have so many other ways  I plan to 

wear this skirt going into winter.  Burgundy is going very strong for the season!

Have you thought about ways to embrace the maximal trend or are you a die hard minimalist who is steering clear?: 

Chime in, love your comment!  

Gratitude

I am grateful that the universe gives what you ask for, today DH went to northern Virginia to cover leads, as he’s not been having as many as he’d like and the opportunity came up for two days of packed in leads so off he went!  

I am grateful that my DH has inherited such a strong work ethic from his Father. 

I am grateful that tonight my son is coming home from college with our new bunny!  

I am grateful that my son had a good day at bowling.
