WIWW: Finally, a Maxi!

Oh, hello, there! :)

2014-05-18 12.54.54

Isn´t it strange that I´m wearing a tube dress on the post today? I rarely wear one and I had to wear a chambray shirt as a cover-up because I wore this to church last Sunday. No dress rules here though I won´t definitely  wear hot pants inside the church, never ever! ;)

I found this maxi skirt hanging in one of the racks during the tail end of the winter sales.Since I´m a vertically challenged gal, as expected, the lower half ended up in one huge heap on my feet. So what I did was hike it up, et voila, I found my almost perfect  maxi tube dress! No trip to the tailor needed although Zara here in Spain offers tailoring services at a discounted price.

So what can I say? Finally, an instant maxi dress for me! Expect more combinations of this skirt-dress soon. I debuted my stripe skirt converted dress together with this beautiful gray and yellow envelop clutch which I think you regular readers of mine have seen in one of my Flyday Friday posts and a pair of black summer sandals which you´ll get to know more in my later posts. ;)

Great use of the skirt I say! I love maxi dresses, they are just SO comfy, and super-stylish.

Oh that is such a clever way to get a maxi dress, the skirt is the perfect length for you to wear as a dress! :)

I fins myself having to get most maxi dresses and skirts taken up, never thought about trying a maxi skirt as a dress. Might give it a go next time I see one for sale! :)

I love that striped maxi and it looks so breezy and relaxed with the open chambray, over it. =)

Love how you were creative enough to turn this skirt into a dress! My first thought would have been to take it to a tailor to get hemmed.
