Ways to Wear It: Maxi Skirt

When I last wore this skirt, it was as it’s intended use – a maxi skirt.  Watch out – it’s a dress now!  I told you I was going to wear it as a strapless dress!  Didn’t believe me, did you?!

maxi skirt dress :: Anthropologie
cardigan :: Marshall’s
belt :: H&M
necklace :: gifted from MIL
wedges :: Cynthia Vincent for Target

Certain skirts, especially those with elastic waistbands, can be worn as a dress too!  I love it when an item has multiple uses (more posts on that to come)!  You just hike up the skirt and add a belt and/or necklace!  Voila!  Since this is a fuller skirt, I chose to belt it.
My parent-in-laws got this necklace for me when they were on a cruise in the Mediterranean somewhere!  I love the beautiful color and simple shape.  It matches all the fluid colors of this skirt dress so well.
Excuse my puffy eyes!  I got a makeover done and didn’t realize that the concealer they used had sunblock in it (and she used it as an eyeshadow base too).  Ouch!

I can’t wait to wear this skirt in Fall!  Let me know if you have any tricks you’d like to share too!

  1. I love the print on that skirt!  It is absolutely gorgeous and great for now and Fall!  Just saw your email :D going to respond right now!  

  2. Oh my gawsh Sam! I thought it was a dress girl! HAHAHA You fooled me! See! That’s why it pays to READ and not ASSUME! Awesome!!! You have nothing on Hoodini! LOL Again, I couldn’t even tell that it’s a skirt. Beautiful colors and great look! Love the cardigan with it. In fact, you could put different colored cardigans with it. It would totally work. I will have to work on some tricks! HAHA Have an awesome Wednesday girl! ((HUG))

  3. great outfit!  beautiful and looks comfy too.  very ingenious idea converting it into a dress with the belt.

  4. Nice! I love skirts as dresses and dresses as skirts! Must be the bargain hunter in me- two for the price of one :) And I love how you tied that belt- would love to learn how to do that. A tutorial maybe please?

  5. Love this look- I’m a sucker for a good two in one, and this definitely works as a dress :)

  6. I love how you tied your belt. You should put a tutorial on here :)

  7. Great idea!  A lot of the time since I’m vertically challenged I use maxi skirts as strapless dresses. Love it!

  8. Hey Sam! I posted much earlier, but must’ve done something wrong. HAHA I didn’t know it was a skirt until I read your post! It truly pays to READ! HAHA It’s truly awesome and I love how you paired the cardigan with it. You can do different color cardigans and it would look great! The colors in it are absolutely beautiful. :)

  9. Thank you Kim!!  LOL@ Hoodini!  That is a great idea about different colored cardigans!  I have a fuschia one that would really bring out the colors in the dress!  Hope you had a fabulous day!!

  10. Thanks Divya!  I’ll definitely try to get that set up!!  I can do a picture tutorial but I want to try video?!  We’ll see how that goes!

  11. Okay Inna! Since you’re the second person asking for a tutorial then it must be done!  And I know what you mean about bargain hunter! :o)

  12. Thank you Tabitha!  LOL @vertically challenged – me too!  And making it a dress definitely adds another “item” in the closet!
