Style Files: 20 Ways to Rock a Maxi

If you stopped by my house unexpectedly one day, you would probably find me in my comfy clothes and my hair in a messy bun.  I’d either be wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt or my painting clothes.  You wouldn’t guess that I used to work at Nordstrom or that I used to wear stylish suits everyday as a bank manager.  But if you happened to run into me at church or out on a date with my husband, I’d be wearing a cute dress, shoes, and accessories, with my hair done nicely.  My style has changed because my responsibilities have changed, but I’ll always be a fashionista at heart.  (Vogue was my first magazine subscription!)

Style Files: 20 Ways to Rock a Maxi Skirt or Dress

I’ve chosen 19 of my favorite looks from around the web featuring maxi skirts and dresses – I hope you find some summer wardrobe inspiration!
