Midi Mayhem: Four Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt!

A Midi Skirt is a versatile piece. This item comes in all shapes, colors, and patterns. I have a midi pencil skirt, one in lace, and one in a fall floral pattern. For those of you who frequent my blog you have probably noticed my black midi pencil I have worn in several blog posts and on my Instagram. I was so in love with my simple black one, I decided to expand my midi skirt collection and share with you four ways to rock a midi!
Basic Black
All summer long I’ve been sporting my black midi with a knotted tank. Everyone always comments on how dressed up and put together I look. The best part about my first outfit is it is super easy and perfect for a hot summer day. My first outfit gives the illusion you put forth way more effort than you actually did. When it’s hot outside I like to keep it simple and with this stretchy black knit midi and a fun graphic tee its easy. Try this look and you can be comfortable and effortlessly chic just like me. 

Midi Pencil: Old Navy $10

Let’s add some color
I love my black midi so much I obviously had to purchase one in another color! This maroon midi is perfect for fall and continuing with my effortlessly chic style I paired it with a graphic tee, bold belt, and my leather jacket to create a simple going out look!

Midi Pencil: Old Navy $10

Fall Floral
My knit midi’s are perfect basic pieces. The floral midi I just purchased is a perfect transition piece from summer to fall. The flowers give it a summer feel but the jewel tone colors are perfect for fall. I’ve cheated a little with this next midi by showing you two looks. I wanted to show you how you can transition it with the changing seasons. The first look is the floral midi paired with sandals and a tank. The second one is an easy transition with boots and a long sleeve tee. Don’t forget to add a statement necklace and this outfit can bring you from summer to fall in a snap. 

Floral Midi: Old Navy $17

Romantic Lace
I had to have this next midi when I saw it on the rack. It’s the perfect midi to dress up any look. I paired it with some strappy heels and a graphic tee and wore it to a rehearsal dinner.  A midi skirt that can make a graphic tee formal is worth the purchase.

Lace Midi: Francesca's $20 

I hope you feel inspired with Midi Mayhem and try some of my looks as well as your own this season with this awesome versatile piece.

I have studied fashion in New York, been to trade shows, fashion shows, and even interned in Seventeen Magazine’s fashion closet. But no matter how fashion forward I am I can’t help who I fell in love with. His fashion sense is... eclectic, to put it nicely.

My husband Jay is an engineer who grew up with very little and saves money like it’s nobody’s business.  He finds it very hard to understand his wives obsession with fashion and buying expensive Christian Louboutin shoes or buying new pieces every season to add to her ever growing wardrobe. He’s a simple guy who owns jeans, cargo shorts, polos (for work), and of course my favorite items, millions of graphic tee’s. Some are humorous, some are from college, and some advertise cars or alcohol. No matter what kind of mood my husband finds himself in, he has a graphic tee for that! Try as I might I will never effect my husband’s “sense of style” the only time I get a say on his wardrobe is for weddings, funerals, formal events, and most holidays.

My husband and I are high school sweethearts and I have dealt with his “fashion sense” for over 13 years and I have found many of our friends and family find it comical how a fashion forward girl like myself has fallen in love with a fashionably challenged husband. I have decided to create an ongoing blog that highlights the many outfits of Jay.

I would like to take this time to note that some graphic tees my husband wears can be offensive. I apologize in advance for the quirkiness of my husband.
