First off thank you all for all of your sweet compliments about my look for the 3 The Curl Way Event! I will admit that I have an obsession with midi skirts because of their versatility, Olivia Pope/ Carrie Bradshaw style approach, and let’s not forget the endless options that come with co-ord midi sets! The midi I wore was actually part of a co-ord set I purchased from Missguided for my birthday earlier this year. I can’t wait to share my top tips for converting your midi look from night to day.

Let’s Get Started!
Raise your hand if you own a midi skirt? Raise your hand if you bought that midi skirt for a cute date night outfit, a party, or girl’s night out? Okay well we are in the same boat; we all bought a midi or two with the hopes of pairing it with the perfect top and heels for a special occasion. Now that the occasion has come and gone and we’ve uploaded hundreds of pictures via Instagram, Snap Chat, Twitter, and everything else– we end up with a lot of really cute one time outfits. (Not cool.) So what you and I both need are more ways to wear those adorable skirts; which is why I am dishing tips to turn your sexy midi skirt into a fun and fashionable daytime look.
Tip #1 Ditch the Tight Top
Crop tops are perfect for a night out, but you don’t want to look over done in a tight cop top and midi in broad daylight. The point is to look flawless without looking like you put in too much effort. Right? Ditch the tight top and opt in for a loose fitting tee, oversized cop top or flowy blouse.
Tip #2 Give your Heels a Rest
Heels are still fine for your day time look, but be honest with yourself. Will you be able to run around doing errands all day with a pair of 4 inch stilettos? I know some people live by the ritual of beauty is pain, but I promise there is nothing cute about your “my shoes are killing me!” look or walk. Trade your pumps for cute sandals or ballet flat. If you have some mental block about wearing a skirt without heels, do a simple wedge! (Baby steps!)
Tip #3 Pin it Up
Skip the time that with would take to flat iron your hair or make perfect beach waves and use your leftover hairdo from the day before to create a messy bun, if you have fresh washed hair opt for a sleek ponytail. Yoncé style!
This is the perfect start to making your midi more day time appropriate! There are tons of ways to dress down for an occasion; to be comfortable yet fashionable! Here is how I styled my midi for a day event a couple of weekends ago:
