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!

    Love this Amy Ann! I’ve re-styled dresses with pants before, but never thought to do it with a mid skirt. I’ll def. be trying this! Also, I’m so excited that you will be attending NYFW!

    Great idea tucking your dress into your skirt, you would never know. Your skirt is stunning, I really have to try this window pane print myself.

    I’m beyond jealous that you are going to Fashion Week but I’m so excited for you! That skirt is to die for by the way!
