Last month, I featured this Free People maxi skirt. Today, I wore that skirt as a dress. I figured I was already pulling my elastic waist skirts up so high (above my baby bump), what's another few inches? Wearing it like this definitely feels more summery, and to help with that I used light brown accessories (belt and sandals) versus the typical grey or black. I am wearing the same jean jacket from when I wore it as a skirt.
Since my goal is to share tips on maternity wear or post-maternity wear, using this skirt as a dress would be very nursing or pumping friendly with the elastic top. However, I do recommend still wearing a bra or tank under as I do. No one wants any wardrobe malfunctions. It is hard to trust a strapless dress when you are by yourself. Add in kids and I would say it's near impossible. You never know when someone is going to pull on you. Wearing a jacket or sweater over it will hide your straps.
I am looking forward to trying this idea with my other maxi skirts. Also, think of this the other way around too...... the grayish sundress in this post has an elastic bust. I have pulled it down to my hips to wear it as a skirt! I will have to blog about that someday.
