maxi skirt + thrift sisters link up

maxi skirt - thrift sisters link upIt’s all about the maxi skirts this week in our Thrift Sisters Link Up.  Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I are showing you the versatility of wearing maxi skirts in the fall.  Check out Keren’s blog to see how she styled this beautiful maxi skirt with her denim jacket.

maxi skirt - thrift sisters link upI have mentioned before that San Diego’s day weather is still very summer-like, with temps in the high 80s.  However, the evenings are cooler and a maxi skirt is a great summer piece that can easily transition into the fall.  I found this beautiful blue maxi skirt at TJ Maxx on clearance for $10.00.  This is the perfect time of the year to get some awesome summer clearance pieces which can still be used in your fall wardrobe.  Maxi skirts are great transitional pieces.
