You know my signature blue maxi skirt that I wear…well…a lot? I have the same skirt in black (seen here). This black maxi doesn’t get quite as much wear as the blue skirt, but I imagine when fall rolls around and my wardrobe isn’t quite so bright, it’ll get more wear.
This black maxi has proved very versatile, though. This past Saturday when Chris and I were in Cincinnati, we headed downtown for a dinner date at the Christian Moerlein Brewhouse. It was super hot on this day, so I wore the black maxi as a strapless dress. Talk about working double duty!
So it wasn’t just hanging there like a bag, I belted it at the waist with a vintage gold belt that I borrowed from my mom’s drawer. I paired it with my gold sandals, a black clutch, and I pulled my hair into a twisted side ponytail and knotted the base of the pony to make it a little fancier than normal for our date!
For our Cincinnati date, we parked at Newport on the Levee and walked across the bridge into Cincinnati. We hopped over to Fountain Square and sat for awhile, enjoying the breeze, and then we headed over to Christian Moerlein just in time for our reservation. After dinner, we headed home to play with Bella!
I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July!
