I know maxi skirts have been in style for awhile now and I know that some people swear by them. I do own two maxi dresses but, believe it or not, I don’t own any maxi skirts. So, I decided to try one from Le Tote (<- referral link) to see if it was something I wanted to add to my closet.
Strangely enough, once I got it I stood in front of my closet for what must have been 30 minutes trying to figure out what to wear with it. I’ve even written a post on how to wear maxi skirt to the office and yet I still couldn’t come up with anything. Except this.
Maybe it’s because it was cool and rainy out the day I wore it so I wanted to wear boots. Maybe it’s because I felt weird tucking something into it. Maybe it’s because I felt that anything I put with it could just as easily be done with my black maxi dress. Whatever it was, I was really struggling.
And after I put this outfit together I spent the entire day feeling like I was wearing a costume. Specifically, I felt as though I was dressed up as myself from college. I had a black maxi skirt that wore all.the.time in college and I liked to pair it with black loafers or black boots.
But I’m glad I tried this skirt from Le Tote. It told me that I don’t need a black maxi skirt in my closet right now. Maybe I’ll feel differently in the summer and I’ll see if they can send it to me then. For now, though, I won’t be adding one to my wardrobe!
