Camo Maxi skirt and clutch

Hey Y'all,

This is a quick one. I have fallen in love with the simplicity but drama of the maxi skirt. This is a pretty simple pattern drafted from my own measurements. I initially used the Mimi G Regal Maxi tutorial found here and have since been whipping them up. I think I have made 4 of these so far. They are simple but the fabric choice makes all the difference.      
I'm not a big fan of camouflage on myself but when I saw this quilting cotton for $2.00/yd at a local fabric warehouse in my area I thought why not? If I don't like it, it didn't cost me much and I didn't waste a fabric that I love.. Well I'm glad I took the chance because I love the end result.

I paired this with a simple lightweight jacket/blazer trimmed in faux leather and wore this to church on Sunday. 

The one thing I have noticed that I don't particularly care for is that the gathers in all this material has a tendency to make me look more hippy than I really am, and who needs that? So in my next maxi I'm contemplating pleats instead of gathers just to see how I like it.

  This maxi can be styled up or down made dressy or casual that's what I love about it.

 I also made a matching fold over clutch but did not carry it with this outfit. I just thought it was a bit much all together but, can totally see this clutch with a cute pair of boyfriend jeans, a simple v-neck t-shirt and a pair of booties.

That's it till later,
