Summery Winter Days

Even when we do have sweater weather here in L.A., we all have to enjoy it while it lasts.  
After a few hours, it's just too warm for anything more than a long sleeve tee.

I've been seeing this lil duo lately: a maxi with an oversize sweater.  I thought I'd give it a try over coffee and a walk Sunday morning.  Sure enough, pretty much after taking these photos, it was time to un-layer and peel off this thick, bulky thing.  

Oh well.  It was fun while it lasted...

 I don't actually own this sweater - it's sort of on loan from a dear friend while she is traveling through Europe.  Which is great because I refuse to buy a sweater but I love to wear them.  So this comfy thing is sort of enhancing my closet at the moment.  

This maxi might just be the most photographed article of clothing I have in my Tiny Closet.  And for Winter, I love that it's not Christmasy.  Still so light with a southwest feel as I pair it with a white Wintry sweater.  Anyway, enter "maxi" into the search box on the blog and take a look at all the ways I've worn it.  And all the cool items I've worn it with!

Happy, Happy Monday to YOU!


  1. This Maxi has been an extremely versatile! I love all the ways you have worn it. The sweater is beautiful with it as well. Happy Monday to you as well.

    1. Thank you! I can't believe how versatile it's been. Happy Monday to you as well!

  2. I've always loved this dress and you are getting a lot of good use out of it!

  3. Sometimes I think I should swap out an older piece of clothing for something new, but I've been following your blog from nearly the beginning and that maxi has worn so well in so many outfits. It's amazing.

    Too warm for a sweater?? I need that problem. :-)

  4. I couldn't bring it up under "maxi" but I did an image search on google for it. I love that skirt/dress. It is versatile. The contrast of textures between the skirt and sweater is attractive.
