Insomniac Sale Picks: Maxi Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Nicola requested a few picks for maxi skirts, so here we go:


Old Navy Jersey Maxi Skirt – was $34.94, now $29.97 – $19


Two Stylists, Two Looks: Metallic Ballet Flats


My friend and fellow stylist Carly Gatzlaff and I have extremely similar business models for consulting with clients, but we also have very different personal styles. Naturally, we put our own preferences aside when working with clients and focus on their tastes and needs, but we definitely bring different ideas and techniques to the table. So we thought it would be fun and interesting for us both to take items from our personal wishlists, style them into outfits, then post them side by side.

I’ve loved the look of head-to-toe white for summer, but it’s just not a terribly practical dressing formula. Especially for a food-accident-prone owner of two shedding kitties such as myself. I wore this outfit for a recent TV segment about maxi dresses and felt glamorous all day – even got stopped in the parking lot by a gal who said I looked beautiful, bless her heart – but can’t imagine doing it on the regular. I’m a stain magnet already, and wearing white always highlights my talent for splashing salad dressing on my clothes.
