one skirt, two ways

day-night

day (top to bottom): necklace, bracelet, bag, shoes
night (top to bottom): necklace, watch, clutch, shoes
middle: top, skirt

i’m a huge advocate of the maxi skirt. they’re comfortable, stylish, and versatile.  and i like them even better when they’re striped. because, well, i kinda have a thing for stripes. just changing the accessories you use can easily transition a maxi skirt from day to night. and that is why i love them.

    I love this! I have a striped maxi just like this and love the different ways to wear them. I have been trying to find a way to wear it to work (it is so comfy!) I am a teacher, so I can be little more relaxed, but it is jersey… Any suggestions? Should I just let the dream go? 😉

      try it with either a collared sleeveless top that you can tuck in and belt (and throw a cardigan over) or a v-neck/nice tee that you can add some pretty jewelry to dress it up a bit!

    LOVE it! And I love anything maxi–it's a little hard because I'm more on the short side, but day/night–love it!

    I LOVEEE maxis too (both skirts and dresses)! I have a question though… I've always been stumped about how to wear heels with maxis. Usually my maxis are short enough that I can wear flats with them and they'll skim the floor. So, if I put heels/wedges with them, they look too short to me. Is this acceptable with a maxi (cuz I know it wouldn't be, for example, with wider leg dress pants). Help! 🙂

      i've seen a lot of style bloggers do the maxi with heels/wedges even though it shortens the skirt so it's definitely possible! you want the skirt to fall right at or slightly below your ankle bone, though, so it doesn't just look like you bought the skirt too small 🙂

    Great transition! I think you hit the nail on the head. I pictured myself wearing the day during the day and the night at night, and I think they'd fit perfectly! I love that maxi skirt. I ordered a chevron black and white striped one from a facebook deal and have been waiting on it now for a bit.
