What to Wear with a Pink Maxi Skirt

I saw a post on Curvy Girl Chic's blog with a hot pink maxi skirt and I knew I NEEDED this skirt. Ironically, I am not one to wear bright colored skirts or pants, but I have been really feeling the trend lately. She posted that she found her skirt at Old Navy, so I had to go and see if I could find the skirt. I was able to score the skirt for $13!! WAHOO! Unfortunately, I bought my normal Old Navy size and it's a bit big and they didn't have a size down. So I could wear the skirt low on my hips or get it taken in.

I couldn't wait to wear it so I wore it with a white T-shirt. YUCK! OK well not yuck exactly, but the t-shirt is too big and the skirt it too big, so I ended up with a bohemian feel which just does not go with who I am. I need to get some smaller white t-shirts. I'm hoping next weekend when I'm in Orlando I can pick up a few. But in order to give the skirt the feel that looks right for me, I think I definitely need to get it taken in.

Here is how I envision wearing the skirt. I think it will look a bit better a bit higher on my waist and a pair of nude wedges. I like the idea of wearing it with color like an orange or yellow top. I'm not sure that I would be brave enough to do so though. I like the idea of a striped t-shirt the way Curvy Girl Chic wore hers. But I don't envision wearing it with a jacket since the weather here is already warming up. I think it will look good with the shirt tucked in and a belt around the waist to keep the look a bit more pulled together, which is the way I tend to feel most comfortable. I want to make sure I have a few different ways to wear it so it doesn't look like I am wearing the same outfit over and over again. I can't wait to try the skirt  again with some different options! But first I need to make a trip to the seamstress!
So what do you think about the pink maxi skirt? Would you wear such a bright skirt? What would you pair it with?


  1. Wow, that skirt is adorable! I feel like making something like that now, it would be nice for spring and summer.

  2. I have a skirt like that actually. I usually wear it with a plain tank top (any color that seems to harmonize well) since it is so attention grabbing on it's own.

  3. I love this! I need it for spring! And I think you could totally wear this with an orange top and maybe nude accessories and polish?

  4. I love that skirt! While I normally don't go for really bright bottoms either I purchased a bright GREEN maxi skirt last summer (ironically ALSO from Old Navy). I LOVE IT!!

  5. Aw, I think you look cute with the slouchy t! Very cali-chic. ;) Love your idea of pairing it with a yellow tank, too!!

    Thanks for the shoutout, hun! <3
