Hollywood to Housewife: Maxi Skirt

Welcome to this week’s Hollywood to Housewife, where I find a picture of a celebrity in an outfit I love (the “Hollywood”), and make it my own using pieces in my closet (the “Housewife”), and without making any new purchases.

With this heat, I was hard pressed to find something that was appealing to me both in style and in temperature. It is just too hot to be wearing too many layers!

When I saw this look, I was drawn to it, mainly because I am a sucker for anything maxi. Plus, the obvious- I knew I had all the pieces to pull the look together so it looked somewhat like Jessica Szohr’s look!

Funny thing about this outfit, is the best picture I found of it was on this webpage saying what a hot mess she
was in this look. I mean it doesn’t scream Hollywood  but I don’t think it’s terrible….right? RIGHT??

I didn’t have an orange maxi, but I had a coral one (close enough). I loved the hint (and I mean hint. Like if you blink you will miss it) of turquoise you can see in the sole of her wedges. The perfect compliment to the orange. The minimal accessories was also great. I don’t know about you, but in this heat I can’t stand wearing a ton of accessories. Can’t. Standit. It just makes me feel so much hotter!

Anyway…here is my look! The whole outfit, head to toe, is Target.

So there you have it! Hopefully next week’s I can be a little more versatile, meaning it won’t be so disgustingly hot and I won’t mind wearing something other than just a tank top! Please, Mother Nature, cool it down a little!! 

Don’t forget, tomorrow I will be guest posting over at The Life of Bon! Regardless of me posting on her blog tomorrow, you should start following her if you haven’t already. I love following along- she makes me laugh, and would definitely be the kind of teacher I would have loved to have!!

Have a good day!

    Love this look, it is so simple and absolutely perfect for the summer heat. I struggle to try and remain stylish in the summer but I have to admit there are so many days I just pull on a pair if chino shirts and a tank top, it's boring but sometimes it's all I can do to beat the heat!I always love your Hollywood looks reinterpreted! xxoo,Jordyn
