I absolutely positively love skirts. Especially maxi skirts. But denim maxi skirts have totally stolen my heart. They’re quite possibly one of the most versatile pieces of clothing, you can dress them up or down. They can be worn to church, to work, or to simply hang out with family and friends.

When I first purchased this skirt, I tried looking up different ways to wear it but all I kept seeing were black maxis, white tees, and denim shirts. Where oh where were the denim maxi skirts? I can’t possibly be the only one who likes them. Can I? I mean, if I am, it wouldn’t be the first time I was the only one who rocked a special look. “Boy” suspenders, anyone?

So I decided that I’d do my own little series because I know there are other ladies out there who love a denim maxi skirt. Notice how I keep saying that? I really don’t want to be the only one…

Denim maxi skirts are perfect for creating a boho chic look. Like jeans, denim maxis have a relaxed laid back feel to them. And when you pair them with a flowy  blouse, a ton of chunky jewelry, and 70′s inspired wedges like I did, the look is total flower child meets suburban mom. Quite a mix, no?

Next week I’ll show you how to take a denim maxi skirt to the office. Or, in my case, to the library.

Do you wear denim maxis? What would you add {or subtract} to make this look more boho?

I love wearing these two {really there’s three, if you count the collared tee underneath the polka dot shirt} pieces together. When I’m having a bad day, this just picks me up. Which is funny because the shape does absolutely nothing for me. In fact, it emphasizes everything I want to hide…mostly my bulging middle and my skinny legs. But it also makes me smile. I think this is a case of pattern/color overcoming insecurities. Or maybe it’s just that I have to fake a certain amount of confidence to highlight the parts of me that I don’t really like… Then again, I could just be over thinking this whole thing…

Do you have an outfit like that? Something that requires that you fake self confidence?

So this week has been full of win! Earlier this week,  I found out that I won a gift card from Sylvia at 40+ Style. Yay! This made me all kinds of happy because I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of clogs for~evah. I’ve had my eye on these and soon they will be mine. Happy Dance And, yesterday morning, I found out that I won a year’s supply of shoe ties in the 12 Ways/12 Days/12 Women contest hosted by Sseko. Have you tried those sandals? They’re cute and money from the purchase of each pair of sandals goes to support a woman in Uganda to finish her college degree. You can see my Sseko sandals here.

Lest you think I’m being all Braggy McBraggerson, last night I dropped my phone into a sink of water. I could’ve cried. Actually, I think I did shed a few tears. Losing my phone is like losing a limb… A small, smart child… My life… A slight exaggeration but you know what I mean.

What’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to your cell?
