One Maxi Skirt, Five Outfits!

I wore my new maxi skirt from Peacocks to work today and I paired it with a navy vest, blue slouchy tshirt and navy blazer. (I also wore some navy leggings underneath as it gets really chilly at work). It got me thinking how else I could wear it because at the end of the day it is just a long tube of slightly stretchy fabric.

Outfit 1

 This was my work outfit minus the blue tshirt and I think it looks quite smart and just about suitable for an office.
Outfit 2

 Quite simply I took the skirt and pulled it up to make a dress. To add a bit of interest I added a leather belt and rouched the material slightly. Add a hat and it transforms into a beach dress.

Outfit 3

 Leaving it as a midi- dress I added the slouchy blue tshirt and tied it in a knot. I like the fact you can see a little bit of stripe at the neckline as its so low.

Outfit 4

 I turned the skirt inside out, folded it back on itself and then rolled it the right way so it bacame a bubble hem mini. Worn with leggings, tshirt tucked in and belt to disguise the slightly loose fabric.

Outfit 5

This is similar to outfit 3 but I substituted the tshirt for the navy vest. This could also be worn with the blazer and would be quite a comfy casual outfit.

Which is your favourite? I think I like the beach dress but maybe I am just too excited for my holiday!

I adore outfit 2! I have a weird love for wearing maxi skirts as dresses though.
