Maxi- Dress or Skirt?


This outfit was inspired by another blog post I saw so I can’t take all the credit for this genius idea. The “skirt” I am wearing is in actuality a dress! Shhhhhhh don’t tell anyone…It’s a very simple little trick. I took a basic orange blouse from Old Navy that I bought earlier this summer, flipped it on over the dress, tied a little side knot and voila, it is a skirt. Pretty simple. I haven’t rocked the side knot before and it was a little uncomfortable to begin with but it grew on me.


In regards to the maxi dress/skirt, I got this at Target back in High School believe it or not…I don’t know if anyone remembers but there was a little spurt of a maxi dress trend back in the summer of 2007 (or maybe it was 2008…don’t quote me on it), it didn’t take on completely but I did purchase a maxi dress then. Now the trend is full blown and I looked in my closet the other day and realized I only have two of them. And one of them is from 2007 (or 2008). Crazy right? I like maxi dresses but part of me thinks I am a little too short to pull them off fantastically…but I’m trying with the help of these amazing new shoes I splurged on from Aldo that help give a little height to my 5’4” self. I am just in love with them. They are super comfy too…well, as comfy as 3.5″ platform heels can be.

I hope this inspires you to style your maxi in a completely different way! And trick all your friends into thinking you’re wearing a skirt…so sneaky 🙂


Just happy to be alive over here…and boy do I need a haircut.
