Khaki Maxi

Sunday, June 23, 2013





Skirt: Banana Republic (similar) // Tank: Charter Club // Sandals: Ecote (similar) // Bracelet: Ebay // 
Earrings: Lavishy (similar)


Khaki "has been used as a color name in English since 1848. In Western fashion, it is a standard color for smart casual dress trousers. However, the name is sometimes also used to describe a drab green color ".... Insert my skirt (wikipedia). Okay, I'll agree, this green khaki might appear drab at times, but I happen to love this maxi skirt! I love pairing this khaki green with red. Red and Green are complimentary colors on the color wheel, so they are a natural pairing. You have to be careful however, red and green can go Christmas very quickly. Thus, why I went with just a bold red lip.

We should also address my obsession with Ebay accessories lately. I have been late night browsing, and finding some really cool stuff. This white floral bracelet is a J Crew look-a-like, and I am pretty obsessed with it! Are you an Ebay shopper? What cool stuff have you found?
