I wore this outfit for a Sunday BBQ at the park with friends. The maxi skirt is actually this maxi dress. I learned this amazing trick—transitioning a dress into a skirt by tucking a shirt into a thick belt—from a recent post by Sydne Summer. It's an easy way to play with pieces and makes your closet options feel even bigger. What's not to love about that? It ended up being a June Gloom day in SF, so I was freezing my tail off at our BBQ. But we still managed to have fun and enjoy the good company.

  4. Cute! Reminds me of one of my posts, where I did the opposite: I took a maxi skirt and turned it into a dress. Great minds think alike. =D
