How to Wear DIY: Maxi skirt as maxi dress

It's been off-and-on hot here, which I am totally okay with. I love summer weather and can't wait for full-on summer!!, but the cool weather we had on Sunday was a nice break from sweating. ;) We actually played frisbee outside on Saturday and my husband taught me I've been doing it wrong since I was a kid. Yeah, well. Sports aren't my thing.

Anyway, in the hot weather I also wore the super simple maxi skirt I made last summer. I love the black and white stripe--not too much black, a little edgy... been wishing for more black and white this year! I made it feel like a maxi dress by tucking in a blousy tank and rocking the interesting waist location of the skirt. ;) The looseness was perfect for the warm weather!

Of course, it didn't really feel like an outfit till I added the fedora! Love when a hat makes any outfit look more finished. (And hides not-done-since-yesterday hair!)
Hat and sunglasses: F21 (similar hats). Tank: Gap via Goodwill. Necklace: Can't remember
Sandals: Ross or DSWSkirt: DIY, no pattern!

I see a lot more maxi skirts and dresses in my future... have you made (or worn) any yet this year?? I've pinned a few ideas lately but have yet to get sewing!


  1. Love your necklace! And yes, the hat totally makes it. Very cool. -Tristie
