Styling a Midi Skirt

September 4, 2015

How fun is this plaid belted midi skirt from Chicwish?! When it arrived, I wasn’t sure what I would pair it with. As I was putting it away, my off the shoulder chambray ruffle dress caught my eye, and I decided to tuck it into my skirt!  You saw me wear it as a dress here. That is the great part about styling a midi skirt – anything can become a top! I’ve also worn it to work with a red and white striped tee. I find midi skirts really versatile. You can wear them to work with more polished tops and shoes or style them for a date night with a crop top and heels. Just FYI – my platforms which you have seen here, here, and here are on major sale!

Also, I am going to fashion week! It is super last minute, but I am so excited. My amazing mother is coming with me, and we are making a girl’s trip out of it. I feel so fortunate to be able to go. When I started this blogging journey, I never dreamed this would be a reality for me. God has been so good to me. I mean that in the truest sense of the words. In the middle of a hard season in life, blogging has been so much fun. So much unexpected fun. All that to say, I have absolutely no idea what goes on at fashion week. I’m actually kind of an introvert. Sooo if you are going, let me know! I’ll be attending the LuLu*s party and the rewardStyle party. I’d love to see some friendly faces. Have a great long weekend everyone!

    This outfit is so fun! I am only 5’5″ so most midi skirts end up being maxi’s on me. Ha! 🙂 I’m so excited for you to go to Fashion Week. I must confess, I’ve never been but would LOVE to go. You’ll have so much fun and hopefully get to meet lots of new, fun people.

    XO, Jaime |

    You look great Amy Ann! I love the plaid midi skirt. It looks great with the off the shoulder top. So excited for your trip to fashion week. I hope to go someday. I just started blogging a little over a month ago so I think I’m still a little of a newbie for fashion week. I can’t wait to hear how it was for you. Have a great time!

    Your skirt looks gorgeous and what a great idea to wear it with a dress tucked in. Have fun at Fashion Week, I’ve been to the London one and here I would say expect to queue quite a lot but yours may be different!
