Wardrobe Re-Wear : Maxi Skirt [Guest Blogger]

Allow me to introduce you all to Jill from Doused in Pink.  I happened upon Jill’s blog when I was reading comments on another blogger’s post and her blog name caught my eye.  Once I clicked over and saw her awesome style on a budget, I knew I had found a new blog to follow!  Jill really makes the most of her clothing budget (seriously–check out some of her awesome deals here). I love the outfits she puts together, and I know you will too!  

A few weeks ago when Tif asked me to be a guest blogger for her Wardrobe Re-Wear series, I was thrilled!  I love to get the most mileage out of my wardrobe and styling the same piece several ways.

I got this maxi skirt from Old Navy for a steal using Gap Rewards and it is such a versatile piece in my closet, it has been on repeat all summer! 

OUTFIT 1 : Maxi Skirt as a Skirt 

Here I paired the skirt with a tank and sandals.  I added a few bracelets and a statement necklace to complete the look.  When it’s blazing hot in the summer, maxi skirts are the best option to stay cool. This was the perfect outfit for walking around town and having dinner outdoors.

 OUTFIT 2 : Maxi Skirt as a Dress

For date night with the Hubs, I wore the skirt as a dress by adding a wide belt.  Then I threw on a jean jacket and booties.  I have worn maxi dresses as skirts before, but this was the first time I have worn a maxi skirt as a dress.  I have to say, it was super comfortable and I will definitely be wearing this again!

Thanks for reading today!

    Great idea to use as a dress also! I think that skirt lends perfectly to it, too. I currently only have one maxi skirt and it has a band at the top that really wouldn't fit me well up top, but I will be keeping an eye out for something more like this to go on sale!

    Love the top in the first outfit as well!

    I love how versatile maxis are! Both of your outfits are super cute! (I'm actually wearing the same necklace as in your first outfit right now!)

    Becky, Jill's post made me realize how much I need to find a maxi that I can wear like this. For example, one of the maxis I have is sheer from the knees down.lol Another has a funny band at the top. Definitely take the top band into consideration the next time I purchase one!

    Caitlin, my basic black maxi has such a funky band at the top too:( I would keep an eye out at JCP and Target for those maxis to hit clearance! Or snag a $10 off $25 coupon for JCP, and buy a maxi for you and outfit for the baby:)

    Hi Tiff, I am Ada. I just found your awesome blog and I am so happy I did. I am a mom on a budget also and I love re-mixing my closet so please check out my blog as well.

    Jill is great. Love her style. She did a great job remixing that awesome chiffon blush maxi.

    You got a new fan and follower in me, by the way.

    Have a great holiday weekend. Ada. =)

    First, I really want that necklace in the first photo… I think it is from Stella & Dot, but I've been seeing it everywhere. And secondly… I never thought to wear a maxi skirt as a DRESS!!! This is brilliant!!
