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?

Loved the post! You look amazing in those skirts!

Batash said...

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.

thankfifi said...

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

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

OR

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!

Britty said...

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.

Natasha Fatah said...

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

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!

Christy {SparklesandSpinach} said...

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!

Katie_B said...

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

Ashley said...

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

London said...

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...

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.

Eloquent English said...

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

paigeity said...

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

Stacy said...

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

jamie @ [kreyv] said...

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!

Vonae Deyshawn said...

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!

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

Gloria {Lia} said...

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

Urban Nester said...

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

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!

Jessika Williams said...

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 :)

Haley K said...

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! :)

amy + jeff said...

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.

Ashley Blossom said...

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

Jessica Broyles said...

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

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

Lauren said...

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

AMY PALMER said...

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

Ash said...

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..?

M said...

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 (:

Bailey said...

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

hannah said...

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

Jacy said...

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! :)

yes! perfect post. just what i needed!

Em-Jae said...

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?

Shaylee Wilcox said...

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! :)

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

Alexandra said...

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!

Mara said...

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. :)

Ashley Rose said...

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.
