Maxi Style

Posted on: June 15, 2014

I know some of you are probably not into Maxi dresses are skirts ,yet…

I have to tell you they are everywhere this Season! 

They fit my boho style well, so I am very comfortable with them and encourage you to go try some on if you haven’t done so , yet..

Linking up with Visible Monday!


If you are a curvy woman, a maxi skirt can be better… 

I wore the sweater over the striped tank and buttoned it once at the waist to create a waist.

Wearing a belt is another option… or sometimes I tie these sweaters at the waist. 


I love this embroidered maxi with an aztec print, which I bought from Golden Tote.

The Ann Taylor sweater and Will Smith tank are both thrifted as is the Relic Purse.


Be prepared for about a month of my wearing flats as I broke my little toe on my left foot…

It’s a good thing I bought a few pairs of cute flats this year!!!!


Any time I can add my Mother of Pearl and Onyx ying/yang necklace , I do so, which makes my dear husband happy since he gave it to me for Christmas…

Dear Readers, If you are a curvy woman wanting to try a maxi dress, I highly recommend one with an empire seam and trying it with a vest or a jacket to balance your upper body and hips.  I love a jean vest that goes with almost everthing.  I recently saw in People Stylewatch magazine, a new idea of wearing an oversized white blouse , unbuttoned and the sleeves rolled up over a maxi.  I would try that, but I don’t have an oversized white blouse…I would suggest trying it with a chambray blouse as well..

I hope these ideas help and challenge those on the fence to give it a try!  

Do you like maxi dresses or skirts?


I am grateful for a fabulous family filled weekend celebrating my son’s graduation and Father’s Day! 

I am grateful that my son is leaving in the morning to go to orientation and sign up for classes at VCU for two days.(it is definitely a real wake up to us all that this is real and he will be going away in about 8 weeks)

I am grateful that my husband enjoyed his weekend and really relaxed, forgettting work for once!

I am grateful that the Summer Style Challenge starts tomorrow!

This is a lovely maxi skirt, Tracey, the embroidery makes it special. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, and for sharing your positive spirit with us.

Fabulous fushia! Love the purse with it too.

Pretty dress! So cool and so summery! Love the sandals and the pink color on you

Boho light! While over-the-top Bohemian eclectic has it’s charms, it’s sometimes fun just to wear a hint, a bit, a soupcon of pattern. Very cool with your striped tank! And your waist shows prettily without the belt. Excellent.

This is one of your prettiest outfits to date! I love the skirt, the colors, the whole look. I hope your toe heals quickly!

Thank you! My toe is much better after a day of elevating it and taking it easy today..
