If there is one thing I am completely obsessed with at the moment it's maxi skirts. I've been searching everywhere for them, but not just for any long skirts. For me this summer, the long skirts won't look prairie, but modern and sleek. It is almost a modern take on bohemian.

I love that the print of this skirt is contemporary.. It has a cool graphic feel to it and the high waisted shape begs for a bustier top. I found this top at a Cynthia Steffe sample sale for $10!

I'm also getting back into silver jewelry and I honestly thought I was a gold girl through and through. The pop of turquoise breaks up the black and white and I love the Native American influence.

Also, I must mention this cardigan from Boy Meets Girl. I met with Stacy a few nights ago for dinner and drinks and she is so fantastic. She was nice enough to mention SG in an interview with Ideeli today! Check out the interview HERE. We have some really amazing plans coming up so stay tuned for that! The cardi is so perfect for Spring/Summer.. it is really light weight and has cute elbow patches... I love it!

Gorgeous outfit! I LOVE the print and shape of the skirt, and you are absolutely right, it begs for a bustier top! It could most be a bustier-top maxi dress, they go so flawlessly together! And the turquoise necklace? Great touch.

You look absolutely fantastic! I still can't believe that skirt is H&M. Why can't I ever find these things when I'm there, ugh! I definitely need to purchase a bustier, I'm just not sure how that's going to work with my lack of a well, bust.

I am smitten with this look! The bustier paired with the long skirt is just so excellent.

Your exactly right, I never really like the long ruffle skirts that come in white and just about every girl had them.

A modern approach is very important to me and this is just that, love it.

I love elbow patches on a cardigan! I'll have to go check this baby out just for that detail... it's so hard to find, but takes the sweater to a whole new level!

I'm also on the hunt for maxi skirts; you look lovely in yours. That turquoise necklace is the perfect pop!
