Happy Friday friends! After seeing fellow bloggers (Marion, Chloe, Blair, and Lilly) wearing fabulous maxi skirts, I've been wanting my own! However, I haven't gotten around to purchasing a one skirt yet. Since I've seen a few other bloggers turn their maxi dresses into skirts by adding a top (Alison and Sam), I decided to try that out! Enter this wonderful DVF silk jersey wrap top I thrifted for about $35ish last year in addition to my old maxi dress and here we go - my maxi skirt test without having to purchase one (yet).

What a great outfit! I love maxis, but they always come up short on me and show my ankles (tall people problems...)

The maxi "skirt" looks great on you, Mary Ann! I've been thinking about trying out the trend too but I'm not positive how great it will look on my petite self. Have a great weekend!

That top is fabulous, and I love how versatile the dress is! I actually just got a maxi skirt from Old Navy and I've been stuck as to how to wear it, so thank you for the great ideas!

Great DVF top - what a wonderful thrift find! This is a great way to get more use out of a maxi dress. Like you, I have only maxi dresses, but no skirts, so I'll have to try this out sometime. :)
