How I Styled It Link Up: Maxi Dress/Skirt

May 13, 2015

How I Style It link up Garay Treasures

Welcome to the second How I Style It monthly link up party. I have the pleasure of hosting alongside several other bloggers to bring you this themed link up and as we have been advertising to you the theme this month is #maxedoutmaxi where you will show us how you style your maxi dresses or skirts and we show you how we style ours. Today I will show you how I styled mine and then I hope you will link up any recent post containing how you styled maxi dresses or skirts.



I choose to style my cobalt blue skirt with a graphic tee that displays “Fashion Reinvented.” Since the tee is a rather bold statement with the skirt color I kept the accessories minimum by adding a thin gold long cross necklace I got a few months back from H&M and my recent purchased black flip flops from Target.


I wore this outfit to a Birthday party my hubby and I put together for our three toddlers (as their Birthdays are weeks apart) and I just loved how comfortable this outfit was to move around in for such an event (pictures coming Thursday).


Outfit detail: Skirt: via JC Penny in the fall (similar here)//Shirt:65 MCMLXV same here. //Flip-flops: Target, same here for $3.99//Necklace: H&M this past winter (similar here).

Now it is your turn to show off how you style a maxi skirt or dress below.

    I love the combination of cobalt and black! I love seeing other women style maxi skirts, but I only own one. I am a little shorter, so I often feel swallowed up in them. I did wear a maxi skirt as a dress once and liked that. I think I just need to look for a shorter version. Thanks for the fun today! Susan

    I love the colour of that skirt! What a stunner! And that’s such a great t-shirt too. I linked up a couple of my fave maxi dress/skirt looks – which apparently I like to style with a chambray button down, lol – obviously I’m a creature of habit! Thanks for hosting the linkup!
