MCLV Style: Maxi

Longer lengths are my favorite when it comes to dresses and skirts – I swear, if it was socially acceptable, I would wear gowns every day. I mean it. Every day. And when it rained I would sit majestically in my apartment staring out the window with a tea-cup and tiara.

Wait… What was I talking about?

Oh yes, hemlines. I’m a huge fan of maxi and midi lengths, especially during the Spring and Summer. Oh who am I kidding? I love them in the Fall and Winter just as much!

There are some San Francisco traditions that I may not understand – Clam chowder in soggy bread bowls being one – But rooftop parties when its nice out is one tradition that I can wholeheartedly get behind.

So when the fabulous Keily of Live Love Moda celebrated Spring with cupcakes, fashion & a serious view of SF I couldn’t refuse.

And what better for my lazy walk from Telegraph Hill to Pacific Heights – And back again – Than a flirty maxi dress?

Do YOU like midi and maxi lengths?

MCLV Style: Faux Leather Skirt

The first time I wore this oxblood A-line faux leather skirt it was a Spring-y look featuring animal prints and a pop of color. Plus a little confession about my Juniors Department adventures… 🙂

The next time I broke this out was for a trip to New York which meant adding some layers and making the look a bit warmer.

Talk about versatile, this faux leather skirt was a great purchase for 2014. Not only does it easily go from day to night, it also takes minimal effort to style it for either warm or cold weather. These kinds of easy transitional pieces are perfect for this time of year in San Francisco. Layering is a way of life here in Spring and Summer so pieces that you can just add some simple layers to are ideal.

What’s the most versatile piece in YOUR closet?

MCLV Style: Pleats & Studs

I had been eyeing this pleated, faux leather, studded skirt for a while – It’s not really my typical style, but I’ve seen a handful of bloggers wearing it and was absolutely in love. So I finally headed to Zara to take the plunge right before my birthday and it was love at first sight!

Once I got this skirt home I had so many ideas running through my head that I couldn’t decide how I wanted to style it. I love both of the looks below – which are quite different style wise – and I wasn’t sure how to make this skirt “me.” I finally settled on pairing it with my favorite suede booties and a basic striped tee which helped dress it down a bit. I’ll definitely be brining it back for another MCLV Style appearance though so stay tuned for a different vibe the next time!

MCLV Style: Pardon My French

I fell madly in love with this sweater when I saw it online and knew that it had to be mine – Totally fun and perfect for Fall! First I tried pairing it with flirty, pleated black skirt but I ended up deciding on my favorite cropped black pants.

I wore this for my company’s End Of Summer party two weeks ago. It was a great night filled with games – skee ball, bouncy houses, golf, mechanical bull, even a zip line – an open bar, lives music, tons of food, and a great view.

I have to admit that it’s been a while since I wore a top that had writing across the front and I’d forgotten how nerve-wracking it is when you feel like everyone’s staring at you trying to read your shirt!

How do you feel about wearing a shirt or a sweater that has writing on it?

MCLV Style: Ditzy Fox

“Are those foxes?”

“Yes. Yes they are.”

Who was it that said that boys don’t pay attention to women’s clothing? Well maybe you just need to wear something as eye-catching as a ditzy fox sweater… 🙂

This was the perfect look for this past weekend – The sweater and velvet kept me warm while the skirt and open-toed heels gave an appropriate nod to it being an end-of-Summer weekend. Trading in my Summer brights for neutrals, browns, and blacks is a time-honored tradition for me when I’m making my Summer-to-Fall transition.

How do you adjust your daily looks when it comes to seasonal changes? Do you reorganize your closet so that you can more easily find your cold-weather pieces?
