Maxi Skirt, Maxi Dress

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?

  1. So pretty and versatile…ah yes I dream of the beach too..even though I live minutes away…but I want the clear blue and white sand kind LOL because I want to be able to see my feet in the water..haha! Great kissy pictures :)

  2. 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 :)


  3. 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!


  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. I don’t have maxi skirts, so I would have to say maxi dresses!! I absolutely love this skirt as a dress. It looks so long!! Also, you look adorable Sandy!!

  7. 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!}

  8. 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 ;)

  9. Love this skirt turned into a dress! What a great way to get more out of your wardrobe! So happy to be part of the IT list with you!
