Whenever I tell someone I’m a fashion blogger, they’ll ask, “Where do you get your blog post ideas?” Really, I get my ideas from everywhere. An idea can come to me while attending a fun Seattle fashion event, watching an award show, and even getting inspiration from men’s fashion. Most times, I’m blogging about the things on my wish list because I like sharing my fab finds.

Once in a while, I’ll get an idea from a friend. I love suggestions, especially fashion/styling questions. Just like that, I get a new blog idea! So I was ecstatic when my co-worker came up to me the other week and said, “I know what you should blog about!”


The topic: What Shoes to Wear with a Maxi in the Fall.

The problem: The tried-and-true flip flops go well with the maxi, but that’s for the summer, and ballet flats with a maxi looks off. So what shoes look cute with a maxi when the weather gets cold?

The answer: Boots.

Ah, but what boots? The best types of boots to wear with a maxi are booties. Those short boots that are cut around the ankle. Although knee-high boots can work, fit can be tricky. Extra room around the calf of knee-highs will bulge from under a maxi. But a little bootie will keep the line of a maxi looking long and sleek.
