How to Wear Knits & Maxi Skirt Trend


At 15 weeks pregnant, I’m finally getting my energy back which makes blogging a whole lot easier! It’s been months where I shot all of my outfit shots in just one day so, as you can imagine, I’m extremely ecstatic that I’m returning to my old routine. And for today’s look, I decided to style one of the hottest trends for Fall: Knits & Maxi Skirts.





Being pregnant I’m all about finding the right balance between casual, femininity and glamorous. Autumn to me, is all about knit sweaters (casual) and maxi skirts (feminine and glamorous) hence it was no surprise that I decided to wear this look to a quick meeting. It’s certainly true that maxi skirts continue to be sought after, almost like your LBD, a trend that simply never dies. So, what’s not to love? They are incredibly versatile and comfy (perfect when you’re pregnant!). I paired my skirt with a white knit sweater and my favorite biker jacket to give my look a little bit more edge. What do you think, and let me know how you would style your knit sweater and maxi skirts season below!

And before I forget: Next week I will finally (!!) reveal the gender of our baby and be sure to come back on Friday for another bump update (I’m 15 weeks)!

    This is such a lovely pairing, beauty! I love that maxi dress, the dusty pink is so pretty and looks great paired with sweater over. Oh, those boots!!! In love! What I really love about them is that they combine two hot trends, the clear boots and the star pattern. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having the best week so far!
