OOTD - Blue Maxi Skirt in Winter

It's that time of the year - when Brian gets so excited for the holiday that he plays Elvis's Blue Christmas on repeat for hours on end. Not that I have anything against The King, but after I hearing this song for the fifth, sixth, seventh time in a row - I'm the one who's feeling blue! As a tribute to our condo's current soundtrack, I chose to break out my favourite light blue maxi skirt. Styling a maxi skirt for the winter is especially appropriate around the holiday season, as it adds an instant elegance to your outfit. I like to keep things season appropriate by pairing my maxi skirts with some light sweaters. Add your favourite pair of heels and a sparkly headband, and you're ready to paint the town red - or in this case, blue.

As excited as I was to wear this skirt in the summer, I'm actually kind of liking it more in the winter.  The pale blue shade of the maxi dress pairs perfectly with a winter white, and the delicate fabric has great movement in the wind.  I definitely plan on donning this skirt well into the winter months - with some tights underneath for added warmth, of course!

Elvis may be having a Blue Christmas, but I'm definitely embracing the shade for the winter.  What are your thoughts on maxi skirts during the cooler months - welcome addition, or best left in summer?  Do you have a holiday song that gets played nonstop at your place? Let me know!
