Wardrobe Remix: Gray Maxi Skirt


 Do you have a piece of clothing that just feels like home? So comfortable that you almost want to wear it all the time? I do. It's a gray maxi skirt that is made out of a soft knit fabric. The best part about it? I made it myself from a dress that only cost me $3. Oh yes. This was definately my most successful refashion ever, and all I did was cut off the top of the dress and add an elastic waistband.  Super easy.  Anyway, I wanted to give you 3 ideas of how to wear a skirt like this. 

 Look #1:  Pair it with a dressier top, wide belt, and heels for a dressier look.  Even a knit skirt can look fancier depending on what you wear it with.  Accessorize as desired.  This is the shirt I made in my last post. 
 Look #2:  Wear the skirt as a dress!  You'll need a belt, unless you want to look shapeless.  ;)  I wore sandals to keep this look summery, but you could add a cardigan and flats for a cooler day.
Look #3:  This popular pin on Pinterest was my inspiration for this look.  I wore the skirt with a white tank top, a wide belt, flip flops and my dad's denim shirt.  I also added my peacock feather necklace just cuz I love it.  How do you think this outfit compares to the original?

This skirt is definately one of my go-to pieces, both when I'm dressing to go out or just spending the day at home. 

What's your favorite go-to piece of clothing?

Thanks for reading!


Look #1:  Top: me-made.  Belt: thrifted.  Necklace: found it laying around my house.  Don't really know where it came from.  ;)  Shoes:  Fred Meyer
Look #2:  Belt: gift, I think.  Necklace: shop in Mexico.  Sandals: I've had them for years, so I don't remember.  Fred Meyer?
Look #3:  Tank Top: Old Navy.  Flip-flops: Fred Meyer.  Necklace: Claire's.  Denim shirt: my dad's.  Belt: thrifted.
