Style: Pink Ballet Maxi Skirt

I bought this earlier in the month, and posted about not being sure how to pull it off. I still need to find a good (what kind of blogger am I to not own one!?), but I’ve owned the skirt for three weeks and worn it three times. Pretty good for a completely impractical item of clothing, I’d say.

Get the Look


  1. Similar — mine was from Anthropologie.


  2. Similar — mine was from J.Crew.


  3. You’ve seen these before.


  4. Similar — I’ve had mine for ages.


  5. OK, this would probably rip the skirt to shreds. “Look out kids, mama’s got her spikes today!”

    You look great! This is such a nice combo.
    A couple of weeks ago you posted an with a flowery pencil skirt that matched the gift wrap in your hands. You also had fabric flowers on the white shirt – it looked stunning. Could you do a post on that look?

    Your post really made me smile today. I love the soft feminine fabric and color choice, the muted “antiquey” hues which compliment so beautifully.

    But what has me really smiling, is that like you, I spent a great deal of my youth in a uniform of BLACK. And now, here we are embracing and loving the feminine, beautiful lines of a pleated baby pink maxi skirt. It feels good, doesn’t it?

    You look gorgeous.

    How dreamy! I don’t own any maxi skirts, but I’m thinking that needs to change soon…

    Nice! I found that maxi skirts are no more impractical than long slacks; they just take a little getting used to, like everything new. Nowadays I actually own more maxi skirts than shorter ones!

    Oh, you look amazing! So feminine and elegant. I found your blog recently, and you make me smile every day. Now I might have to find a skirt like that for myself. Wonder if it will be hot in 100 degree weather.

    I just started reading your blog and found the dinosaur murals you painted for your nephews. I love them! I really want to do the paint-by-number mural also. As a short/squat kind of gal, I shall enjoy the pink maxi skirt vicariously through you! Great blog.

    I love mixing the green belt with your pink skirt! Precious choice.
    I got an olive-green maxi skirt last year and I haven’t been able to figure out how to pair it but your post reminded me of a pale-pink men’s button down that would look super fantastic.
    Love your blog, by the way. Long time listener, first time caller. ;)

    You should be able to find some really GREAT 3/4 sleeve black and white stripe tops from both Target and Old Navy, actually. I also found some great cardis is colors that would work from there too. (I recently jumped on the maxi band wagon too!- so fun being an adult- right!)

    I love how you chose to style it! Pairing it with olive is a great choice, I may have to try that next time I wear this skirt! Very pretty.

    You definitely pulled this off SO well!

    Oh and the peonies are like pom-poms who are cheering you on – so very pretty!

    I finally planted some of them in my front yard -although blooming season is almost over, hoping they can turn out great next year – all happy like yours!

    I love anything pink, and I’ve wanted a pink pleated maxi for the longest time. This skirt suits you so well! I don’t think it’s impractical at all! Looks great.
    Hope you have fun in lovely Toronto! Maybe we’ll bump into each other :)
