This maxi skirt was a staple for me over the summer, and now that cooler weather has hit, I wanted to find ways to wear it year-round. I bought this Gilly Hicks sweater while back home in Minnesota last month (Mall of America, I miss you so) and I am kind of obsessed with layering it over all my staple pieces now. Maxing out all of my chic options is a good thing in my book!
As I mentioned yesterday, I love using fashion to bolster my inner #getitgirl and stay motivated, no matter how maxed out I may be in the rest of my life. The inspiration is never-ending when you remix your favorite pieces. Chin up, heels on, layered necklaces, done. Bazinga!

It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of working long days, but I’ve been making more time for fitting in what I love on my off-hours to keep me more inspired when I’m on. Blogs like 9 to 5 Chic and Atlantic-Pacific (Blaire is so iconic, and so sweet) keep me motivated to keep my style game high and to share it on my blog.
I dedicate this post to those of us who work long hours, commute long hours and still keep it together throughout the day well enough to let a (known) paparazzo get a few snaps. Bravo, bloggers. Hats off to the #getitgirls! We do it with sparkle, we do it with poise, we keep it chic for twelve hours a day and we document it. That, fellow fashionistas, takes guts and glamor. And the occasional sequined collar and extra-large Diet Coke.
