Weekly Obsession – Maxi Dresses & Skirts

I really love the maxi trend this summer. I loved wearing maxis in the early 2000s, but haven’t worn one since. Now I’m officially obsessed again!

Lucky for me, I won a $100 ShopBop gift card and ordered this Splendid gray maxi skirt.  (The most expensive piece of cotton I’ve ever worn, but also the most comfy…love it!)

Then I won a Kohl’s gift card and ordered this Daisy Fuentes black maxi dress.

Yeah for free things!  So excited to wear these…the possibilities are endless.

Enjoy the blogger inspiration below, and go buy your own maxi!

Sew Much Ado looks so cute in this purple maxi skirt.  She even teaches you how to make your own.
love Maegan keeps it simple with neutrals.
Short of Something adds a pop of color and uses brown as an unexpected neutral to a black & white dress. 
Kendi Everday shows us how easy it is to wear a maxi dress.  Simple, pretty, and comfy.
Love this color blocking look from Academichic.  She’s actually wearing a dress, but it looks like a skirt.  Now that’s versatility!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the last one. I have a maxi dress that same color but my boobies are a little *ahem* big for the top of it now that I'm nursing. This is a GREAT idea so that I can still wear it and not look like a floozy. Sweeeet! 🙂
