maximum maxi skirt {thrift style thursday}

I never really know how to style maxi skirts. I also have doubts about whether I, a 5’3″ lady on a good day, should be wearing such a long garment. When I came across this cute maxi skirt at Goodwill the other day, the idea wheel began to spin.

thrift style thursday - maxi skirtsHow about skirt + blouse + wide belt + jacket or sweater + boots? I really like how this turned out!

  1. I love the print of the skirt and how you kept it simple with solid colors on top. The belt and boots are excellent choices. Love the necklace…your necklaces are always so cute!

  2. Nout, I know what you mean, I`m 5`2, and I first thought I was too short, but I own like 4 now. Love them too much to give them up. Happy late b day by the way, your only one year older than me so I know what you mean about the big 30! Anyways, love the neutral color and how you paired it!!

    1. Jackie, honestly I would NEVER have guessed that you’re 5’2″ – the way you dress makes you look like 5’6″+ …:) Glad to know us shorties can wear maxi dresses and skirts – which is good cause I love maxi dresses. Thanks for the birthday love! xoxo

  3. I LOVE this look – you are definitely rocking that maxi skirt!!! And I especially love how you picked up the colors in the skirt and accented with similar neutral tones, beautiful! 🙂

  4. I was reading/looking at a style book I have (I can’t remember which one it is, Lucky or InStyle) and it said maxi skirts make you look taller. I think this does make your legs look really long. It looks lovely on you!

  5. I absolutely adore everything about this look! Girl…you know how to work a maxi skirt, mmk?! I cannot believe the steals you always get…$3.59 for a maxi skirt?! Ridiculous. I have to say, though…the boots are one of my favorite parts 🙂

  6. Yes mama! You can definitely pull off the maxi. I think the way that you wore it around your waist is super flattering and even lengthening. Looks very statuesque and the color/print is perfect.

    Happy belated birthday by the way!!! You have the same birthday as Dave Grohl so consider yourself in good company!


  7. I love this outfit on you!! And I really loved that you styled it for fall/winter. I’m always at a loss as to what footwear to wear with a maxi length (other than sandals), and this looks fab.
