{Outfit} Maxi Dress in Winter

Earrings: Ardene // Necklace: Stella & Dot // Maxi: Handmade
Sweater: Drop Dead Darlings // Belt: Rikki's // Booties: The Bay

Alright, it's decided. I am not a fashion blogger. I never have been, and I never will be {never say never}. I follow a lot of fashion blogs and have nothing but the highest admiration for these beautiful women who take pictures of their inspiring outfits day in and day out! But that isn't me. All that being said, I do like to do fashion posts and am going to try to do one outfit post per month in 2014. What do you think? Doable? 

This month's outfit is brought to you after many months of thinking about it, much Pinterest research, and four winters of this cold weather. I knew I wanted to attempt the maxi trend in the middle of winter, but I hadn't put pen to paper yet, so to speak. But now that I did it, I LOVED IT! I had so much fun digging out my summer maxi {which I sewed by the by} and wearing it in -25 weather. So until next time! 

Happy Monday!

How cool that you made the dress! :D I at all. haha! One outfit post per month is totally doable. :) I've come a long way in just the last year/ year and a half of consistent outfit posting and have seen my style change even in that time. :) It's fun.

Visiting from the link up! I just love maxi dresses, and they're so easy to pair with leggings in the cold weather, so you can wear them year round! Cute necklace too!
