Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post


This is a guest post while J is away. Be sure to check out Amy's blog, Leopard and Lillies!

When temperatures start to rise outside I think it’s important to have an outfit that can easily transition between boiling summer heat and the freezing indoor air conditioning. The reason why I love wearing maxi skirts is that they are perfect for a hot summer day. Adding the scarf can either be a fun accessory or double as a shawl when the A/C starts to cool down inside.
