I so often see the long maxi skirts in the store and wonder what to pair with it. First thought that comes to mind is "Little House on the Prarie", but you can wear one and look cool!
First choose a tiered skirt that has a print and pair this peice with a wide belt. This combo will instantly update this look. I recommend to stay in the neutral color range and do not...i repeat do not chose a floral print! Find a loose white button up shirt and tie at the waist. Add a pair of espadrilles and your set to go milk a cow or help Pa with the fire wood...just kidding!
