Maxi Skirt turned Maxi Dress: Anthropologie | Cardigan: Express | Sandals: Target {similar} | Necklace: Forever 21 | Watch: Target {similar}

I’m jumping on the maxi bandwagon but I can’t decide which I like better.  You see the maxi dress I’m wearing?  Well, it’s supposed to be a maxi skirt, but it’s long enough to wear as a dress.  So to me, this versatility is a total bonus since I can wear it two ways.  And yes, those are people on the beach… on my dress.  Oh how I wish I could be one of those people right now.

Hope kissy pictures don’t make you gag, it’s been awhile since we’ve done one so just had to throw it in there.  :)

Which way do you sway?  Maxi skirt or maxi dress?

    We are twins! :) I have that same skirt. I love how you’ve worn it as a dress. Fits you perfectly! I haven’t tried wearing it as a dress yet, but I sure do love it as a skirt. :)

    Both! No need to pick between the two because they’re equally gorgeous. How perfect that your skirt is long enough for you to wear as a dress!

    So neat that you can wear it both ways! I can’t believe how long some of these maxis are…you have to be like 6 feet tall to wear them, haha! And the photo with your hubby is very sweet :)

    It’s so pretty! I love how it’s a beach scene. So spot on for me :) I’m a maxi lover myself and I’ve also worn my maxi skirts as dresses. I’m on the shorter side so it works :) xoxo

    Aw the kissy picture is so sweet :) And that’s my struggle with maxi skirts, they’re all basically dresses on me because I’m so short! Cute outfit Sandy!

    Although the print is nice I would go with skirt instead. Maybe just roll the waist band down to get the length you need. I just think the fabric doesn’t drape nicely from the chest down.

    This is what I love about maxis – they can really go either way. I think this would like great as a skirt but when you’re wearing it as a dress, you would never know that wasn’t how it was intended to be worn!

    So cute! I love your maxi skirt/dress! I really like maxi dresses more bc you can wear them as a skirt! {But the reverse is true for you too!}

    Love the fun mix of colors and prints! The 2nd photo with the green background is DIVINE! Great depth of field. (Now that I know you love photography, I might be using more tech-y terms in my comments ;)). Great thing about being petite is the versatility of the skirt turned dress turned back to skirt ;)
