Rainy Days and Mondays

06/27/2011
A couple weeks ago, on a similarly rainy Monday, I wondered about the appropriateness of maxis in the office.  I got more compliments on that maxi dress at work than I have on, well, pretty much anything I've ever worn, so apparently it was okay.  Or at least cute.  But what about a maxi skirt?  I think the addition of a statement necklace, heels and a belt (which was riding up a bit too high in this shot) make the maxi skirt, which I'd previously only worn to bum around on the weekends, okay for work.

Sandals: Aerosoles

  1. I think that outfit is great for work.  The accessories make the maxi skirt look dressy.

  2. I love maxi skirts, even if I'm short! They make me feel like I'm a gypsy. Or that I'm hiding something (under my skirt?) This is a perfect work outfit, I think! It's stylish and functional (and modest) too!

  3. I really like this. I think that the maxi is a great look for you - I don't own any long skirts I kind of want to try it out now : )

  4. I like this and agree that the maxi is a good look for you! I think the accessories dress it up for work.

  5. I definitely think a maxi skirt can work for work (obviously since I wear them a ton)...as long as you dress up the top half and accessorize.  i love what you did with your skirt!!

    See, again, I think this totally works.  Love the color of the top on you too.  Gorgeous.

  7. Your necklace intrigues me -- where is that detail shot??
    I still havent ventured into maxi office wear... I probably will at some point.

  8. I realized in reading your post that I've never worn a maxi dress to work.  I've worn maxi skirts, but never a dress  May have to change that when school starts up in the fall.

    It is a fabulous outfit.  And I think the maxi skirt is better for work than the dress, really.  For whatever reason, it looks more professional to me.  What did people at work have to say?

  11. Shoot, I'll need to do a detail shot when I wear it again.  I totally forgot!

  13. I thought of you when I put together my office maxi skirt outfit, since I've seen you wear them more than a few times.

  14. Lady, I have bookmarked this look - it's stunning! Or, rather, you're stunning, and the clothes are just highlighting the inevitable.
