28 Days of Spring Fashion (Day 19)

It’s Day 19 of my 28 Days of Spring Fashion and today I’m styling a striped maxi skirt.

I will be honest and tell you I’m not a huge fan of maxi skirts. I love them on other people but for some reason when I wear them, I don’t love them.

I do get emails from you all asking if I would style a maxi skirt so here’s how I styled mine.

I added color with my coral top from LOFT. I feel like I need color right now. I’m pale from winter!!

I puchased these sandals from Old Navy and they’re going to be great for spring/summer. I love that they have a little bit of a heel. They only come in whole sizes. I usually wear a 7 1/2 so I’m wearing an 8 in these.

Next, I decided to style this skirt with my converse sneakers. I see women wearing them with skirts all the time so I decided to give it a try.

I tied my chambray shirt in a knot because it didn’t look good tucked in.

So here you go, one maxi skirt, styled two ways!

 How do you style a maxi skirt?

So I realized this morning that I counted the days wrong and my 28 Days of Spring Fashion is going to go into April for a couple of days. This does not surprise me with the way my month has gone! Ha! Can I mess anything else up?

  1. I don’t care for the chambray and coverse matchup with the maxi but sure love the other with the denim jacket and sandals. You should know that you look very cute in a maxi! Hope to see you wearing more!

  2. I’m with you… I like the maxi on others but not on myself. I am petite and I feel it make me look dumpy. I love both looks on you

  3. You look adorable as always. 😉 My favorite is the coral top and denim jacket too. Looks great!!
    sandals are cute too 😉 thanks Cyndi. Have blessed day 😉

  4. I just bought my first maxi a few days ago. I am not a shorts wearer out in public so I thought a long skirt would be cool and comfortable. It’s black and white stripes and the stripes are really thin. And there is a nice wide waist band with shirring at the sides. I can’t wait to wear it!!

  5. like the maxi for many of the reasons already listed. they seem to be so versatile going from casual to quite dressy with just a couple of changes.
    has anyone else noted that they did not receive their newsletter yesterday ??I am wondering if you have some bugs attacking your blog.

  6. Love the skirt with the denim jacket and coral shirt, very cute. However, I’m 5’3″ tall and have not worn a maxi skirt or long dress. Just feel like I look frumpy in them.

  7. Love both styles! I usually wear my maxi skirt with some blingy flip flops and a tee on the hotter days. I like your idea with the tied chambray (or any button-up).

  8. I think it could be the stripes, but I do like the skirt with the denim jacket. I’m only 5’3″ and enjoy wearing cute maxi dresses (haven’t tried a skirt yet) being petite, I’m careful with large prints when wearing a maxi and normally wear a heel or wedge with mine for height.

    Cyndi, have your tried a maxi with the hi-low hem? I just bought the cutest skirt with the hi-low hem at Steinmart. It gives you the best of both worlds, ha! I plan on styling mine with a denim vest and tee shirt.

  9. I think you might like a maxi skirt better if it was solid and not horizontal strips.
    I style my solid gray maxi skirt with a knit top that has a light print. Wearing the top out and belted. Shoes are usually a wedge.
    Love my wedges!
    Hope you enjoyed you Sunday off.

  10. Love the chambray shirt, but because I’m thick-waisted, don’t think it would look good on me to knot it in the front. Maxi-skirts are so comfortable, I love wearing them. They go with practically any type of footwear.

    Thanks for being such an inspiration! Because of this blog, I have felt truly inspired to be stylish at 41, that I’m not doomed to be frumpy!

  11. I agree with most of the women … you look sweet in a maxi skirt but maybe try a flowing blouse instead of tying one at your waist. Just a thought, but I think you look great! I am 5’5″ and think I am too curvy to wear such a long skirt. I do love the maxi dresses… have you ever styled one of them?

  12. You look cute both ways and you’ve inspired me to go out and buy one tool! Just need to find one for my 5’3″ height. I hate how long they can be…
