3 in 1 Maxi Skirt - Part 2

Hello, everyone! Hope you all had a great week and looking forward for a well deserved weekend.  For me it is going to be a busy weekend with final preparation for the boys' exam that starts on Sunday plus celebrating Captain's birthday!  Yes, my husband turns 44 today!

Like a good vintage, he has grown to be wiser, cuter ;D (I like the salt and pepper look ala George Clooney haha) and a better person over all.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best life could offer and may God bless him, always.. Ti amo, Amore!


Speaking of birthday celebration, this was me yesterday on the way out for dinner with Captain.  As promised in my last post, in this post I styled this maxi skirt as a shorter dress by folding the top part and using a belt to give a better silhouette.  The blazer is essential for me since during the summer Dubai can be freezing in door especially in the cinemas and malls. Plus as I explained here, I always try to follow the correct dress protocol when in public.


I don't normally spend a lot of money on shoes as I wrote here but Captain actually splurged on this pair from RODO for me sometimes back.  It is a beautiful pair and I normally wear them with dresses.  We went to the showroom in Milan and I liked them instantly and brought them home!

  7. Happy Birthday to your husband. The maxi skirt looks great as a dress. You can't even tell it was a skirt.

  8. This is a fantastic way of wearing the maxi skirt. I've always thought that a maxi skirt/dress is only for casual occasions but it can be a smart-casual outfit when paired with a blazer.

    BTW, I tried your pumpkin risotto recipe this week. Twice. I couldn't find a pumpkin so I used butternut squash instead. It was incredible! My daughter and her friend gobbled it down within minutes. I had several helpings myself!

  12. OK.. My closet monster still has not spewed out my gray maxi so I might have to coax him because I am loving this idea more and more. Great pairing with the blue blazer! Love those shoes!

    Hope you enjoy you weekend!

  18. I like how you folded up the dress to shorten the length. I'm on the shorter side, so the maxi dresses I've tried are usually too long for me. I'll have to remember this trick for next time :)
