Tied to the max

As promised at the start of this week, here is my entry in Marionberry Style’s “Trend of the Month” challenge, with maxis as this month’s theme. I turned my blue maxidress into a maxiskirt by employing one of my favorite tricks and layering a shirt over the dress. I cinched my waist with one of my dad’s vintage ties.

I wore this on the last day of spring term. As I mentioned on Sunday, I’m off contract for the summer, except for a specially funded project that will require a few meetings and a few weeks in my office. Therefore, there will be much fewer work outfits featured for awhile on this blog.

And yes, twirling IS required when wearing a flowy dress or skirt.

I ended up really liking the mixture of feminine and masculine pieces, and it was a very comfortable outfit to wear! Three cheers for maxis!!! 😀

    A tie makes a great belt – I like how the silk and pattern add interest. I have all the pieces to put together this outfit … I might just have to copy you! 🙂
