What I'm Wearing | Perfect Combination: Chambray Shirt + Maxi Skirt!

10:00 AM

For the last couple of years, they go-to clothing item of spring and summer is the maxi skirt.  And one of it's perfect partners is the chambray shirt.  

Inspired by Pinterest
A chambray shirt and maxi skirt is a perfect transitional outfit.  
On a day like yesterday where the temps hovered around the mid-60s, this was a fabulous way to still represent a boho-chic spring.
Any color or print maxi would work great with a chambray shirt.  But I chose my yellow maxi, because y'all know how I feel about the color yellow!
Wearing:  Chambray shirt:  DKNY; DIY maxi skirt.

    Is this a gathered skirt. Looks like 3-4 metres of fabric

  6. Gorgeous!! I did the same last Friday with my fav floral diy maxi skirt. You would think I had on a two-piece thong bikini the way people were staring (I don't think everyone's ready for spring/summer...SHAME on them)!

    Loving that yellow! You are SERVING the camera in that "sitting on the bench" pose! :)

  7. Super cute! A maxi skirt is my new go-to item as well. Casual and comfy, but sophisticated and on trend all at the same time. I expect to make several before the summer is through!

  8. Fab combination!
    If the skirt is gathered (and un-hemmed?) is it as straightforward as sewing a band at the top and inserting elastic? Or am I over-simplifying?

  16. Love the maxi skirt and the gorgeous yellow color! What pattern did you use for this maxi? I need to make me a maxi this summer. I have a gorgeous bamboo in yellow that would be perfect for a maxi skirt. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. It's a maxi skirt... no pattern needed. Just to pieces of fabric seam on the sides and elastic at the waist. It didn't even require a hem!
