More March Maxis

It's more maxi's with layers for me this week, as the temps just DO NOT want to get over 30 and we are still seeing snow flurries. Both yesterday (pic at bottom) and today, the color scheme was black, grey, brown..... and aztec/tribal prints. But the maxi outfit I have planned for tomorrow is very colorful and flowery!
Today it was a plain black maxi (great staple to have) with the Fireflicker Cardigan by Konrad & Joseph from Anthropologie. I don't think this cardigan is getting as much love as it should from the Anthro community. The few reviews it has are great though, and I agree. The fabric/weight is absolutely wonderful. I was drawn to the black, white, grey pattern with just a touch of peach.
On a side note, Jon calls these glasses my Liberace glasses...... they are cheap knockoffs of the baroque Prada glasses from a few years ago.

 Last Friday, I wore the cardi with a striped top for some pattern mixing..... skinny black jeans and flats.
 And here's the other maxi look I was talking about - just couldn't get good pics that day. Originally worn here a few years ago. To "winterize" the look, I swapped out the short sleeve sweater for a long sleeve one (Matilda Jane), sandals for boots, and a thin belt to a thick one. Same necklace.

I love that cardigan! How did I miss this? I honestly do not remember seeing it. But It looks great on you. I love both of the ways you styled it, but my favorite is the striped top. I love the pattern mixing. It just makes me happy.

That maxi dress is so pretty. I know exactly what you mean about an outfit you are excited about and then not being able to get a good picture. It happens to me all of the time. Your picture looks great, though. It looks intentionally dark, romantic and a little moody!

Must check that cardigan out!
