Tangerine Dream

Top: H&M; Skirt: American Apparel; Shoes: Nine West; Necklace & Rings: Forever 21

I was inspired by many of my favorite bloggers to recreate a colorful and effortless summer look. I purchased this nude colored chiffon maxi skirt from American Apparel and couldn't be happier with it. As you all know, I'm obsessed with maxis (dresses and skirts alike), so I knew that incorporating a neutral color to my closet would be a wise decision. This is a skirt that I look forward to wearing for the rest of the summer,  and I can't wait to see how I transform it for the Fall. I purchased the brightly colored H&M top fairly recently for only $10! The first time I wore it out, I got complemented by just about everyone around me, which only made me love the top even more. The shoes, from Nine West, have to be one of the most unique pairs I own. I love everything from the soft suede material to the pale taupe color. Oh, and did I mention I got these babies for half off? Yeah. Below are three beautiful bloggers who basically put my look to shame, haha, but really, they are all stunning, so definitely check them out!

Liz from Late Afternoon in Zara; Taylor from Sterling Style in Hallelu; Dylana from Nana in Wonderland in Hallelu and H&M

And, for those of you who are looking for your own perfect maxi, take a look at some of my picks below. Jill Sander's cotton candy pink and snow white striped maxi is one of my absolute favorites. At a whopping $1709 (also known as a full month's worth of rent for a one bedroom in San Francisco, haha), I think it will just have to remain on my wish list. Mod Cloth's beautiful pleated chiffon maxi is both practical in terms of price-point and wear. Lastly, PacSun's Kirra Maxi is an absolute steal at under $20, so you'd be super silly to pass it up!

So, there you have it! My outfit, my inspiration, and my picks for you! How did you guys like this post? Is there a trend or outfit you would like me to recreate? I'm thinking of doing more of these types of posts in the future. Haven't figured out what to call it just yet, so I'm open to some clever suggestions (Trendy Thursday, maybe?). On that note, I would absolutely love it if you guys would send me some of your own looks too! Have an awesome Friday and an even more amazing weekend. I start my new job on Monday, so I'll be a Nervous Nelly alllll weekend long. P.S -- Don't forget to enter my Generation Love Giveaway!!
