Today is HOT in Brisbane. It’s going to hit 36 degrees. I was hunting through my wardrobe looking for a light, strapless dress. Can you believe I don’t own one! It didn’t matter how many times I looked, I couldn’t make one magically appear.
What I do have is a lovely, long, cotton Border Print Maxi skirt from Bohemian Traders.
Daily Style: Wear a Maxi Skirt as a Dress
I pulled it on and just kept pulling it all the way up to my armpits. I thought about a belt and then tossed it. It’s too hot to be restrained like that.
I have plenty of great shoes that would have worked beautifully, but I’m a Queenslander and it’s definitely thong weather.
This dress/skirt would have looked seriously hot with a tan waist belt and strutting wedges but I’m dressing down the hot with a denim vest (you must own at least one) and a chambray shirt around the waist.
I’ve never been big on colourful statement necklaces. I love the simplicity of a delicate chain, or a small pendant. Today, I’m wearing my “Rachel” Banner necklaces from Uberkate. I haven’t taken this off for weeks. Now I’m desperate for an Expression Cuff with words from my late father *sniff*. Tomorrow is the anniversary of his passing. It’s been 16 years but it feels so fresh.
Would you wear a Maxi skirt as a dress?
FYI: this is the skirt, worn as a skirt
