This is probably gonna sound crazy but I'm not really in love with maxi skirts for myself. I'm not a very big person and I feel like a long flowy maxi skirt often highlights my size (or lack thereof) up top. I think the right fitted boxy top would work out well with my long skirt but until I find that top, I'll just wear those maxis as midis with a cute belt to highlight the waist.
ps. I'm linked up with Manic Monday (here & here)
