Making the Most of Our Maxi Skirts with Ageless Style

It's the third Thursday of the month and time for another ageless style challenge.  This month Amy picked maxi skirts as our theme and while I have a couple that I wear in the summer I didn't have anything that felt appropriate for winter. 

I ended up buying a denim maxi skirt and I really love it but that's not what I ended up wearing at all.  

First off it was a cold and windy day (think 28 in the sun!) so I wanted to wear my fleece lined leggings underneath and a thick turtleneck sweater.  I was so surprised to find that one of my spring/summer maxi skirts worked much better with the fleece pants so I just went with it.


I wore a black tank top under my gray turtleneck sweater with my denim jacket on top and my brown boots, fleece lined leggings, and skirt on the bottom.  Surprisingly the only parts of me that were really cold were my hands, nose, and ears. 


But I sure could feel it when the wind blew.  I added my newest pearl/silver necklace and a dangly set of earrings for a little bit of sparkle.
 


I really loved the look of this outfit!  



But in all honesty I took the skirt off as soon as got back to the car. I really just can not bring myself to wear dresses and skirts when it's cold outside and it feels much too weird (and staticky!) to wear my leggings underneath the skirt.  But I do like knowing I could if I needed to.

  3. I love maxi skirts, and this one is just beautiful. It looks great with the denim jacket too - I pair a jacket or cardigan with my maxi skirts in winter. Shoes are always the hardest for me to pair with a skirt in winter. You look great!

    1. Aw, thank you! I probably could have used a winter coat but thought it would look funny. :)

  5. What a good idea to wear the fleece leggings under the lightweight skirt. I wear mine all the time to go outside for supervision when its cold but not cold enough for ski pants. That's a lovely print and I can see if paired with so many things for spring and summer.

    1. Thank you! It was the only way I could even think of taking photos outside in a skirt.

  6. What a great idea to wear fleece leggings under a maxi skirt! I love this look on you. I like how you styled your maxi skirt. It looks great with the denim jacket. I can't believe it's so cold by you. It's been so unseasonably warm in Wisconsin.

  11. Nice job winterizing the lightweight print skirt. It has a very sweet print that works well with your neutrals. Maxis in the winter feel a bit odd to me because I wonder how people keep the hemlines dry when there's snow, but I do like to wear shorter skirts in winter as my go-to option with tights.

    1. Yes! I definitely felt like I was holding my skirt off the ground anytime we were near any snow/ice; thankfully most of it was melted but it was cold enough that the mud was also frozen.

  12. I think you look fabulous in this outfit, Joanne! Aren't denim jackets just the best? I do hope you wear the denim maxi some time because I remember really liking it when you shared it!

    1. Aw, thank you! I definitely plan to keep the denim skirt and style it more in the spring.

  13. It is a cute outfit! I can't do it either in the cold. same here.

  14. I can understand that it doesn't feel nice with that cold to wear a skirt. But it sure does look very good on you Joanne!

  15. I don't even wear dresses much here in Tx in the winter. It seems more of a warm weather thing. You look cozy though! So funny about taking the skirt off after the pictures!

    1. I think so too; I rarely even wear skirts or dresses in spring and fall but often turn to them for summer.

  16. I love your outfit and the shades of blue look so lovely all together. But with the wind blowing all that static wouldn't feel very comfortable. It's a great transition into spring outfit though.

  17. I think adding those leggings was brilliant. That's why I think our summer things can be more versatile than we think!!
    I have worn mine all day just hanging around but I did take off my skirt yesterday when unpacking boxes 🤣
    Xoxo

  19. So stylish and cozy at the same time! Great idea adding fleece lined leggings to keep you warm!

  20. This look is so cute and cozy! I love the print of your skirt! Fleece lined tights and leggings are such a lifesaver in the winter!

  22. Very pretty! I am obsessed with maxi dresses and skirts and now loving the midi length too! Have you tried that length out yet?

    1. I have and don't mind that length either; though honestly I rarely wear dresses or skirts and do prefer ankle length when I do just for ease of movement.
