Cozy In a Maxi

I've been wearing my maxi dress in warmer weather, but wanted to see if I could transition the piece into something more suitable for the cold. I stuck to a growing favorite color combination of mine, navy and red, added a chunky scarf, then... got stuck on what shoes to wear. Black flats? Flip flops? Nude flats? Flat boots? I figured most of my foot would be hidden underneath the hem, so nude flats would blend in better with surroundings. Nope, of course the way I was standing made them the most visible. I think I should've went with plain old black flats. What are your thoughts on shoe pairings with maxis?
sunglasses: Old Navy (similar)
scarf: gift from SewPetiteGal (custom order from her Etsy shop)
rings: Forever 21 braid & chain stack ring set (similar)
sweater: H&M (may still be in stores)
belt: J.Crew (similar)
bag: H&M (similar)

  1. I actually like these flats. The bow looks like another stripe. I think flat boots work well too. :)

    1. Good point about the bows looking like stripes. Black, navy... can't tell much of a difference unless you look up close. I'll take it :)

  2. I usually just wear black flats with my black maxi skirt (I only own one maxi) - I've seen people wear boots but it just feels so weird and imbalanced. I think the nude flats look fine though!

    1. I've heard that too... but I thought bare toes would look funny sticking out when the rest of me is covered in winter accessories. There's always a first time to try new things :)

  9. I actually really like those flats Cee! Like you, I've always have a difficult time deciding what shoes to wear with a maxi but I love how you transition your summer dress into fall. The scarf and sweater is a nice touch! I going to put on a limp and say maybe pair a casual (cotton maxi) with ankle booties??? Thoughts? :)

    1. Oooh, ankle booties weren't on my radar (don't own a pair). Perhaps flat ankle booties could work? I wonder if that would look as unbalanced as tall flat boots. Hmm... time to ponder some more. Thanks, KT!

  11. I wear my Minnetonka moccasins with my maxis. It gives the outfit a more casual/bohemian vibe.
