The Hunter Hat

IMG_9450

Hi everyone, hope everyone’s week is going well.

Today is consisting of daydreaming, packing and a whole lot of planning in preparation for my trip to Paris this weekend. I could not be happier to be reunited with my hands-down favorite city in what I have seen of the world. No matter how hard I try, I can not seem to get my mind of macaroons at Laduree, walking hand and in with my love down the Champs-Élysées and maybe sneaking a kiss or to in at the top of the Eiffel Tower. But can you really blame me?

But back to my reality, let’s talk maxi’s. I have been a fan for many years now of this functional meets fashionable trend. But why only limit this to being a summer style? Maxi’s can make (fashion) magic happen by being a great base for a fall outfit as well. First, stick to the basics. Start off with a simple jersey style in a neutral or jewel-toned hue (let’s not rock neon pink, it will clash with the autumn leaves). Next, add a jacket of your choice, leather and tweed add warmth and polish to the look. Then, add a fall accessory, such as a great hat (like the hunter green hat I’m sporting) or a printed scarf. Finally, polish the look of with your favorite ankle bootie. That’s your recipe of the day for max(i) style, even as the temperature drops.

    Do you think short people can pull off maxis? I’m 5’2″ and I’ve always been skeptical with wearing them. I feel like it would engulf me lol. Love the idea of wearing them into fall though, looks great with a leather jacket!

    • I absolutely do! Wear an ankle bootie with a bit of a heel, find a fitted version that is hemmed if need be, but the key is fit. Look for one with a V-neckline to elongate you and look for one with definition at the waist so it does not “engulf you.”
