The Tiny Heart: Winter Maxi

2.06.2013

Winter Maxi



Top-Gap (similar for $10), Scarf-JCPenney (similar), Maxi dress worn as skirt-Old Navy (similar), Clutch-Vintage (similar)

I bought this dress (worn as a skirt) at the very end of the summer and I never got a chance to wear it. So, I decided to style it for winter instead. It's comfy and cozy, almost like wearing pajamas. Plus, I can wear whatever I want underneath. Like a tutu, and you wouldn't know it! (I don't, just leggings. It's the principle of the matter).

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy, Rolled Up Pretty, All Things Alissa, Stylelixir, & Because Shanna Said So.

  1. I love it!! And, I'd totally wear a tutu underneath that just for fun, but I guess leggings are more practical haha. You look lovely! What a great look :)

  6. My friend Elena and I always joke that you can wear whatever you want under a great maxi dress. Our favorite is..."You could be nude under there and no one would know." I know, it makes very little sense, but it makes us laugh.

  14. I love this. It looks super cozy, and I do love the idea of hiding layers under the dress for warmth:)I always worry that layering over a maxi and wearing it with real shoes instead of sandals will look more little house on the prairie than cool.

  16. I love it! I've always wanted a maxi dress, but they're always too long. I just bought a midi skirt though that should be maxi skirt length on me, so we'll see!

  31. That's a great comfy but stylish outfit! Love it. So what shoes do you wear with that? I am so used to wearing maxis with flip flops or sandals, and I had a hard time deciding what shoes to wear with it in the winter.

    1. I had on ankle boots but I think it would've looked better with regular boots.

  40. Great combo - I don't know why people don't wear maxis in the winter more often! Talk about an opportunity to layer!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like the effortless-ness of this look! So chic, easy, and still classy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's so hard to find maxi dresses/skirts for short people like us so this was a brilliant purchase! I really want a long skirt or dress like this. I love how you managed to style it for the winter!

  49. I haven't had the guts to try a maxi in winter yet - I'm always worried I'll be cold of the print is too "summery" (so many of my maxis are printed). Love this look, though - I'm pinning you as inspiration! :)
