I never thought I would wear an ankle-length skirt in an attempt to be “fashionable,” but after seeing some of my favorite bloggers sport the maxi skirt look so effortlessly (here, here, and here), I decided to give it a go. I managed to get just what I was after for a mere $0.99 at one of my local thrift stores, and before I knew it, I was rockin’ the maxi! I am loving the fact that it’s suprisingly comfortable and gives off a different aura of sophistication in comparison to say, a pencil skirt. And what’s even better is that as the temperatures start to drop, you can simply slip on a pair of leggings or sweater tights underneath without anyone knowing the difference. I am calling this “bohemian chic.”
What is your opinion on the maxi trend – love it or leave it?
