Top 5 reasons to rock a maxi this spring

On second thought, lets not limit that to spring.  I’m all about wearing maxis year around but I’ve grown borderline obsessed with them over the past few weeks.

1. Oh your legs are still winter white?  That can be our little secret.
2. You can dress it up or down.  Always a fave, if you ask me.
3.  One of those days where you just really want to throw on some yoga pants?  I bet a maxi skirt is just as comfy.  Try it.  {And let’s be real… that’s worth all 5 reasons by itself.}
4.  If you own a maxi dress that you love, switch up the look by layering a shirt over it and it will instantly turn into a skirt + shirt combo.  Boom!  Completely different look.
5.  A maxi is a good investment because you can wear it to so many different events.

  • I’m so happy someone invented the maxi dress and then the denim jacket – those two go hand in hand like olives and oil…did that make sense LOL! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

    • Ha! They really do. And since I wear them nonstop, I’m pretty sure the people I’m around on a regular basis are glad they were invented, too! 😉

  • I’m obsessed with maxi dresses! I love the print of your dress and how you styled it with the denim jacket!

    • I just can’t seem to tear myself away from maxis and denim jackets these days. It’s the perfect combo for this weather.

  • Yesss! They’re so comfy and cute! I have a really hard time finding maxis that aren’t hella long on me though. I have a maxi dress from target a few seasons ago–I love it, and it’s been washed enough times now that it’s the right length for me! ha!

    • Sometimes oldest ones have had the most (washing machine) love and just fit the best!

  • The maxi is great ! comfy and easily accessorized changes the look. You look fabulous. Visiting from TWP.

    • Thanks!! Comfy and perfect for this weather. I just can’t stay away.

  • Agreed! Love a maxi. You look beautiful in yours!

    • Thanks! I love the large flower on the side of this one.

  • You look gorgeous! I’m a huge fan of the maxi dress – I think they are way more comfortable than toga pants!

    • They really are. And I feel like you can wear them to a variety of events. Win-win.

  • Carly

    Looove the floral maxi! I definitely think it’s the perfect solution when your legs aren’t totally shaved too!

    • Seriously. Not completely shaved or really pale. Mine are currently both.

  • I LOVE Maxi dresses, but they always swallow me up. I think its’ my height/body type. I still try them on all the time though 😉

    • I’m sure there’s one out there for you… you just have to find the right one!

  • I absolutely love the whole look! That dress is a must.

    • The best part is – it was my sister’s dress from years ago and I forgot she had given it to me. When I pulled it out… “jackpot!!”

  • Love your maxi! I love maxis, but I don’t have many because they are usually too long for me!

    • I have to be careful of the opposite problem. But keep looking – there’s got to be one out there for you!

  • Maxi dresses really are the best!

    • Amen, girl. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • That dress is so pretty! I need some good ones because they hide my pale legs!

  • You already know I’m a huge fan of maxi dresses/skirts! LOL! I swear I wear one once or twice a week! haha. Your maxi is so pretty on you! You look great! Maxis with a jacket over top is my favorite look!

    • Me too! And twice a week is totally normal, right?

  • Great look, I absolutely love maxi dresses, especially with floral print, and I really like to wear them with denim jacket.

    • A maxi + a jacket is just too easy to resist. I’m with ya, girl.

  • I’m a recent maxi skirt convert. I used to think I couldn’t wear them because I’m so short, but I’ve actually found a few that are flattering. And I completely agree that the ability to dress them up or down is a huge selling point.

    • One of my favorite assets. That and the fact that they’re so comfy.

  • I still don’t own a maxi! :-( I’m just too short for them, atleast I think. I love that you pair a black top with the black skirt, you totally can’t tell its two pieces!

    pumps and push-ups

    • Brooke, I bet you could find one that works for you! You just have to find the right fit.

  • WOW! Love this maxi dress!
