warm weather maxi skirts

Tuesday, May 22

I'm kind of addicted to the things. Click HERE to see my three favorite maxi skirts right now.

P.S. For those who have mentioned that you don't think you can wear maxi skirts because you're on the shorter side ... I'm not an expert, but I think you'd probably look smashing in them. I'm only 5'3.

Maxi skirts make my world go round. I even dedicated my own version of a song in their honor last week over on my blog. So much looove.

Methinks I need that pink one. Is it kind of sheer though or just the right thickness?

May 22, 2012 10:08 AM

Love this! Awesome outfits, Sydney! You are too cute.



May 22, 2012 10:12 AM

love the bottom one! gorgeous.

May 22, 2012 10:13 AM

you are so dang cute!! I love these posts. I recently wore my first maxi skirt and INSTANTLY fell in love. I need all of these now please :)


May 22, 2012 10:18 AM

Loved the post! You look amazing in those skirts!

May 22, 2012 10:19 AM

I'm five foot, and thought I could never wear a maxi, but I did yesterday and absolutely loved it! I didn't think I looked too bad in it either. I think I could wear one every single day.

May 22, 2012 10:20 AM

maxis can be tough if they're not maxi enough I think! Know what I mean? I guess if you're 5ft3 you might get to avoid that prob. I'm wearing a 'maxi' dress today but it was about 4 inches off the ground so I'm wearing it low as a skirt instead.

Totally love how you styled yours.x


May 22, 2012 10:24 AM

Love Maxi's! I need more!

I'm obsessed with maxi skirts in bright colors for the season.

You can dress them down with a funky t-shirt and ballet flats


You can pair it with a simple shell and a fitted blazer and heels for evening wear.

I just picked up a fuchsia one from BCBG MaxAzria, and I love it.

See how I style it here!

Maxi's are my go-to since I am pregnant, thanks goodness there are so many cute stylings for them!


May 22, 2012 10:37 AM

You rock maxis girl! I'm with you every girl can wear maxis, is all about proportions and balance, I adore your grey skirt and vibrant orange combo!

The last skirt looks drop dead gorgeous!


May 22, 2012 10:43 AM

I love maxis. I have a hot pink chiffon one that I'm DYING to wear (used to be a dress, had it forever), but even the lining is way too see-through. I'll have to improvise.

May 22, 2012 10:44 AM

I'm so glad maxi skirts and dresses are in - a welcome alternative to showing way too much skin!

I'm the same height as you! I really need a maxi skirt/dress! They're so cute


May 22, 2012 10:59 AM

i am loving the pink one. gorgeous!

May 22, 2012 11:09 AM

i love the look of the maxi...but was scared, but you've given me courage...love all the fashion posts...they don't feel quite so out of reach compared to other blogs/magazines, etc. thank for being accessible and encouraging!

May 22, 2012 11:13 AM

I love maxi anything!!! They are always on the long side (I'm 5'3 also) but I always wear at least 4in heels ;) Off to look at your picks now!

May 22, 2012 11:21 AM

Love your style & the skirts! I am working on sporting a maxi dress & skirt this summer. I am 5'5 so I was not sure--but my real question is I am wider in the hips & was not sure if that would be unflattering on my body type..any advice for what to wear with a maxi skirt--top wise?

Thanks! xoxo

May 22, 2012 11:27 AM

I feel like I wear one everyday. Love your looks!

May 22, 2012 11:28 AM

nicely done lady. i am 5'11" and finding a maxi long enough is what seems to be my trouble. thank goodness the high low is popular right now so I can alter any of the too cute, but too short maxis I find. i think i will name my next boy Maxis, oh wait...

May 22, 2012 11:39 AM

Love warm weather maxis. I am in search of a good maxi dress.

girlfriend, no one can pull of a maxi like you. just sayin.

May 22, 2012 11:47 AM

I'm 5'4 and I absolutely love them!

May 22, 2012 11:49 AM

I love your simple hair styles! I wish I could pull off a bun like that.


May 22, 2012 11:52 AM

I am five four and most of my height is in my torso and maxi skirts make me look taller. :)
Also I saw a few girls were worried about panty lines with the skirts… a secret, all lace underwear = no lines, but you still don’t feel naked. (it is also surprisingly comfortable) Victoria’s secret is a good place to get a pair

May 22, 2012 12:12 PM

Love, love, love, love, LOVE the orange shirt!!



May 22, 2012 12:19 PM

right now I am a super maxi fan!

May 22, 2012 12:33 PM

Perfect for the harsh Phoenix sun! Covered up yet cool.


May 22, 2012 12:51 PM

Love, love, love!! I need cute, modest looks for summer. Keep them coming! BTW, I can't believe you are 5'3. You seem so much taller than that!

May 22, 2012 1:02 PM

I absolutely adore maxi skirts! I could positively live in them every day of my life. I have to agree that they're great at any height. I used to think I couldn't wear them because I was too tall and didn't want them to look high waterish, but it's not a problem. Love love love them!

I have 2 maxi dresses and love them dearly!

May 22, 2012 1:24 PM

loooove the maxi skirts. It's all I want to wear right now. lol

May 22, 2012 1:32 PM

You can never have enough Maxis also I cannot believe you are only 5'3 you look way taller than that!

May 22, 2012 1:41 PM

I love all 3 looks!! super cute.. love the neon and gray though :)

May 22, 2012 1:44 PM

Gorgeous! Maxi skirts actually make those on the shorter side look taller.

May 22, 2012 1:52 PM

Stop being so cute. It's not far to the rest of the world.


May 22, 2012 2:17 PM

For one, you look amazing (as always) and it's totally hilarious to me that shorter girls claim they can't pull off maxi skirts because maxi skirts are perfect for giving the illusion of being tall which is why I don't wear them. I'm already 5'11 so I look like insane monster woman everytime I try one on.

So count your blessings shorter girls and dawn a maxi skirt!

May 22, 2012 2:18 PM

So I just bought the orange tunic, and I also bought the Von Eshna necklace on Sunday... boy, Im kinda pathetic. Thank you for being the perfect kind of bad influence :)

May 22, 2012 2:27 PM

all three looks with your skirts are lovely!! i especially loved how you paired the neutral gray skirt with the neon orange top :) Maxi skirts and dresses are just fantastic...they can be elegant, yet casual and they're always comfortable. and *cheers* to being short and still rocking them! :)


May 22, 2012 2:31 PM

I am 5.3" too, but just one question...over 25 week baby bump or under?

You are alway so adorable, I know you will know best.

May 22, 2012 2:42 PM

What about if you're on the TALL side and you feel as though they may not reach the floor. Is that awkward?

May 22, 2012 3:01 PM

Love the neon!! and the pink maxi! Oh, and the sunglasses! :)


May 22, 2012 3:06 PM

If you say so! :) I'm not that tall as well, and you gave me great inspiration, thanks Sid!

May 22, 2012 3:06 PM

thanks for the tip about shorties and maxi skirts! i'm 5'2 and have been staying away from the trend, but i may try it now!!!


May 22, 2012 3:28 PM

Great styling, the maxi skirt is so simple and versatile.

May 22, 2012 3:46 PM

YESSSS you totally pulled off the neon orange shirt. And it looks perfect, of course.

May 22, 2012 3:46 PM

LOVE this post. Probably because I live in maxis. Thanks for doing yet another wonderful post on them.


May 22, 2012 3:46 PM

adorable, as always (:

i'm 5'4", on a GOOD day, and i LIVE in maxi skirts/dresses.. grown up pajamas, in my opinion... only more.. princess-y..?

yup, i think that's the explanation i'm sticking with!

May 22, 2012 4:50 PM

first of all, i absolutely love all of these looks. and i agree with you! i am only 5'0 and was afraid i would be swallowed by maxi skirts and lately they are my go to choice! thanks for the inspiration as always (:

May 22, 2012 5:10 PM

love the three pairings. my favorite has to be the 2nd! just gorg!


May 22, 2012 5:10 PM

oh gosh, the first and last looks are my absolutely favorites!
you are more than precious, girl!

May 22, 2012 5:41 PM

I LOVE the look of maxi skirts, but what about those of us with basketball donks? I'm just afraid. :/

May 22, 2012 5:59 PM

May 22, 2012 6:24 PM

May 22, 2012 7:24 PM

I love all these looks. But seriously summer? They look way too hot for summer. Spring maybe.

May 22, 2012 8:16 PM

I love maxis. So much. I personally find styling them for winter way harder than styling them for summer, though.

May 22, 2012 8:47 PM

Well I'm pretty much in love with your neon pink maxi skirt so I'm really bummed that it's out of stock in that color! Love the styling of all 3 of these looks though. And you definitely have us fooled...I would never guess that you were just 5'3"! Impressive! :)



May 22, 2012 8:50 PM

i love all of these looks!

LOVE the maxi skirt. Such a coincidence that you posted about this today- just yesterday I picked up my very first maxi skirt. It's black and white striped! Thanks for giving me a few new top ideas!

May 23, 2012 4:33 AM

so stylish!

May 23, 2012 5:41 AM

you are stunning!

May 23, 2012 6:29 AM

You look stunning!

I love maxi skirts, and feel like they make me look taller. (I'm "only" 5'5)

You are just too fashionable and funny, I think I have a girl crush <3

yes! perfect post. just what i needed!

May 23, 2012 11:57 AM

Love me a good maxi, but at 5'4, it seems like EVERY single skirt I try on has at least three feet of extra fabric. How do you do it? Where are the maxi for people who are less than 6 feet tall??? Do you hem them?

May 23, 2012 2:45 PM

ohmygosh. okay, so i literally have spent the whole day at work (because it is a slow day and i loooove your blog) reading all about you! i seriously, seriously am in love with your blog. you are hilarious! thanks for making my whole day! no joke! :)

xoxo, shaylee

ps. when is awkward and awesome coming back? i love those.

What gorgeous colors! And yes I think maxi skirts can work on anyone if done right, which is what you did! Btw, your baby is just the cutest.

I LOVE that bright orange and grey combo!

May 23, 2012 11:05 PM

Great post, I have so many maxi skirts in my wardrobe, I'm always waiting for someone to tell me to stop wearing them!!!!

May 24, 2012 1:55 AM

You're so right! I've also written about how short women can wear maxi skirts and you were one of the perfect examples that I've gave.

You always look gorgeous on maxi skirts!

Oh! Maxi skirts are awesome I love them so!



May 28, 2012 9:22 PM

I saw this on pinterest and thought it was you. I love Maxi dresses/skirts. I live in them. I copied your denim top maxi skirt bottom today! So comfy.

June 01, 2012 11:35 AM

I LOVE the neon one! Sadly, my boyfriend isn't fond of maxi dresses or skirts, so I can't get away with wearing them too often. (Then again, they aren't terribly flattering on my figure, so... oh well.)
And by the way, your link to the post goes straight to the comments. Just though you might want to know. :)

June 05, 2012 2:59 PM

I loved the pink one so much I went online and bought it from Windsor, but I had to return it. I don't know how you are rocking your because mine was so transparent I couldn't wear it! You could literally see right though! :( Ohwell I am going to try again at another store where I can see the skirt on me first.
