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.
Details: Maxidress: Boutique store in Texas, old / Black button-down: H&M, last winter / Tie (used as belt): My dad’s, vintage / Black sandals: Payless, gift from my mom last summer / Black pearl hoops: Gift from my husband, Abu Dhabi
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!!! 😀
