Fitted Maxi Skirt Style

Hard to tell looking at me, but at one time in my life dresses and skirts were repulsive to me! My poor mother was at her wits ends as her one and only daughter insisted in dressing like a tomboy. I recall once, my dad drove past me not realizing that the figure in baggy pants, oversize sweatshirt and beanie hat was his daughter. The long maxi skirts are back in fashion and I am giddy with delight as this was the style that transitioned me from the tomboy style to the feminine style.

Nairobi is awash with these long fitted skirts as well as the midi versions. I love the neon and printed versions of these skirts. I finally went against my no clothes shopping for 6 months rule to get two pairs in neon hues. I love how these skirts provide full coverage while still showcasing the curves we so love to flaunt :)

Below are various ways to rock these skirts:
This is like in my wishlist. The ruching on the hips area and the color makes this skirt so cool. I like that the top is not a full crop top just giving a teasing glimpse of the belly.
Ruched side slit maxi skirt with a knotted Tee.
This is perfect for a more dressy or official look for a maxi dress. The animal print shirt works so well with the bright colored skirt. The belt ties the two perfectly
