How To Wear A Maxi Skirt

How to wear a maxi skirt was a question often on my mind and it even caused a few sleepless nights because having tried this trend a couple of times and failing miserably at it I decided wearing maxi skirts was not for me. But each time I looked at those fabulous pinterest maxi skirt pins my heart would pine for anything maxi length too..Id tell myself “maxi skirts are not for the ‘not so tall’”, but my heart refused to listen.

So I decided it was time to learn how to wear a maxi skirt, considering the fact that they were occupying considerable space in my wardrobe ( and its essential to make every square inch of your wardrobe sweat for you) and the little girl in me was yearning to be in the floor kissing, feminine silhouettes. I would dream of  beaches, summer evenings and the wind getting caught in my summery pastel dreamy maxi skirt.
