I had this post ready two weeks ago. As many of you know, I lost my fiance around that time (January 21). To say I was devastated would be a HUGE understatement. (I will do a post later about my loss, experience, and grieving.) Because G. Boo was so proud of my blog and told everyone he knew and ran into, it is only right to get back in the groove of things. But before I do, I want to thank EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU who offered words of encouragement. Reading them actually made my smile…even if only for a few minutes. I cherish each of you. Again, thank you!
Also, as you can tell, my blog looks differently. I spent so much time working on it before my G. Boo passed and I had to put it on hold. While it’s not complete (Content in Categories is missing and Instagram at the bottom of my blog is missing), I was still a bit anxious to get it up and running. So in the next couple of weeks, those things will be completed as well as a few more tweaks to work on.
Now! I was going to pair this sweater with my beloved slip dress (and you know how much I love slip dresses…see my posts here and here), but I remember I’d already done this last year (see that here). Well, I guess I could’ve done a newer post because I see now this post is actually a sweater over a maxi dress. So, be on the lookout for the sweater + slipdress combo this spring.
This post is moreso about pairing sweaters with mid-length flare skirts. What I love about flare skirts is you can create so many different unexpected looks with it. And you know how I feel about versatility!!! Because I added a satin cami with this satin skirt, it actually looks like a slipdresss, don’t you think? So if you’re looking to acheive the slipdress look, just make sure you match a satin or silk cami and flare skirt.
When pairing sweaters over flare midi skirts, take into consideration where the sweater hits…it’s really important. I like to either layer a cropped sweater or one that hits right around the top of my legs. You can drape it off one shoulder like I have in some of these photos or even belt it at the waist (for a straight-edge sweater) if you want to create more of an hourglass shape.
You may remember this sweater worn with a caption tee in this post. See what I mean about versatility? This wrapover satin skirt was $40 when I purchased it last year. Don’t fret…it’s still available for a fraction of the price I paid!
Even though this sweater is a size small, it kept falling off my shoulders. So I just let it do it’s thing. There is NO WAY anyone could wear it without something underneath it. In spite of, I still really like this sweater. It will be in heavy rotation during spring transition!
Have you ever worn oversized sweaters with flare skirts? Or do you have another creative wear of styling them? I’d love to know!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I love having you here. And as always, have a beautiful day. –Candy Rachelle
