Kits Shoot - Photo by Ned

I really thought I could never wear a Maxi skirt. It's the whole Little House on the Prarie vibe, plus I'm of average height and let's face it, I have curves. I tried many styles and decided that I could (I hope?) pull off a maxi skirt that was flowy and romantic. It had to have movement, that's for sure! I stumbled upon this lil number at H&M a few weeks back. I opted for the black colour because I'm a chicken it would go with more of my blouses. Not an ideal shade for summer, but I haven't seen summer yet, so I think we're safe.

A special thanks to Ned for taking all of these photos (except the close up, that was all self portrait action) and being such an awesome photog. As well as Niki for the awesome DIY turband project.


    I seriously want to try that whole turban thing. I'm going to go dig deep into my closet for a random scarf.... haha

  7. Alicia you are such a beauty I feel bad for not being able to say more than that. These photos are gorgeously composed, great work Ned!

  8. you definitely pulled it off. no doubt!
    You look beautiful as usual

  9. Look at you, miss Alicia, all mysteriously and bohemian. I cannot get over how much these shots look like they fell right out of a magazine, especially the close-up- so impressed that you took it yourself! You're the only girl I know who could possibly manage to wear a turband and look amazing, not awkward, and you pull off the maxi with flair. I was totally chicken to trend them, too, but they're actually surprisingly easy to pull off. And oh so comfortable, too!

    It was fabulous to see you yesterday- and oh how I loved your highlighter shirt :)

  10. So glad you tried the maxi, cause you look amazing! The turban was the best way to complete the look, gorgeous pictures!
