how we wear it: Maxi Skirts

Aug 1, 2013

We are baaaack and hopefully you are too, so that you can join in on this round of How We Wear It- this time it's all about the maxi skirts. I love a maxi, S loves a know you love a maxi. They're flattering, transitional, comfy and...comfy.  Sooo S of ANMJ  & I are here to show you how we wear them... (I'm doing the preggers version for a while :) ...

Keep it simple, but add some fun little details- I've said it before and I'll say it 10 million times more. I like simple. It's fun to pack a little style punch into a simplistic outfit though...and I did this by simply adding colorful statement earrings and gold cuffs. Done.

bauble earrings | caroline g. 
cuffs | On a String Bead Shop - I'm thinking of doing a DIY with these??

Turn that maxi into a casual little dress- honestly, this was a spur-of-the-moment idea. I was like, "hey, this thing is super comfy...I'm at the beach. Let's make this thing into a dress". I added a belt and dress it was. It won't work with every maxi, but if yours is stretchy...try it out! Ps. You may or may not want to add a semi-nekkid baby to the mix.

Get Fall-ready - It's still a bit too hot for any kind of layering (for many of us), but when it does start getting a bit cooler...throw on a blazer and flats with your maxi skirt. It'll make it a transitional piece that will get you through that in-between season. Btw, my bump is getting on, eh? :)
