Casual Christmas Maxi Skirt Outfits

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 

Sharing two casual Christmas maxi skirt outfits I wore recently. The first one for our annual Christmas Eve family day, the second for a couple of Christmas parties. It has been a fun but busy December with all the get togethers.


What I wore:

Earrings: Colette Ciao Bella glitter ball drop earrings
NecklaceSilhoupette gold plated Shih Tzu necklace
Tee: Merry Christmas reindeer antler tee
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
Shoesslim navy and pink Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus Christmas ribbon bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red


Why I wore it:

This is what I wore on Christmas eve. The past few years I've worn the same tee on Christmas eve that my sister bought as part of a new tradition, a festive glitter Santa tee. This year I wanted to wear this reindeer tee mum made me - she made matching ones for us all, even the kids. I'd already worn this tee to the Christmas night at Movie Word theme park, and I knew that since it went so well with my red printed maxi skirt then, it would work well with this navy striped maxi skirt too.

This was the same skirt I wore last Christmas eve too - it's a very comfortable stretchy skirt. Perfect for Christmas crafts (machine washable!), making and decorating cookies, and for eating a lot of delicious food, spending time with family, and watching a Christmas movie. Once again we watched the Polar Express, as requested by my sons!

The little red saddle bag fit my wallet, phone, keys and camera, and was a nice matchy-matchy option with the red print on the tee.


Last worn: reindeer Christmas tee, gold bauble earrings, gold necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, Havaianas, red studded saddle bag.

Other ways to wearreindeer Christmas tee with red skirt, navy stripe maxi skirt and denim jacket, red studded saddle bag worn 30 ways.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey


Why I wore it:

This was another fun, but very hot day, before the one above. We had a kids Christmas party in the afternoon and then a Christmas party with friends in the evening. Which we ended up having to leave early from unfortunately because the kids were just worn out from the huge day!

I figured with two parties in one day it was a good time to get this sequin tank out again. I've worn it to a Christmas party before, and to the office. It's the kind of piece you can wear year-round but it seems extra festive at Christmas time. I thought the black sequins would be so nice with this black maxi skirt. It's perfect for a hot day even though it's a dark colour because it's super light viscose. And thankfully it is easy to wash after there was lots of delicious food dropped and smeared all over it (at both parties!).



How You Can Wear It:

A maxi skirt is a great option on a hot day, especially if it's from a light material or has a slit up the side. Perfect for a backyard party, or a quiet day visiting family, they are easy to dress up or down.

  3. I love these both - and I hope you had a really great Christmas! It's always such a hectic time and this year I got hit with a terrible cold which definitely put a damper on things for me...

  10. Two gorgeous outfits, Mica, so I'm not going to choose a favourite :-)
    Love the pop of red from your handbag in your Christmas Eve outfit, and surely navy and red are always a match made in heaven.
    Your second outfit is very festive too. I'm loving how the grey bag picks the grey in your tee's motif!
    It's lovely to read you were able to attend quite a few parties. This years it's just Jos and myself, we've postponed the family get-together unit things are more safe! Happy New Year! xxx

  17. Your mother made that tee? She is very talented, it looks beautiful. And wearing something with an elastic waistband is sensible, I did that too for Christmas Eve. We had my sisters and my niece over, it was so lovely to spend time with them.

  21. Wonderful outfits, Mica! I love the low-key festivity of the first one (your delightful ribbon bracelet is so perfect), and appreciate the matchy bag. Your second outfit is amazing - the colours are just right together, and you have nailed the stylish-glitz without being overpowering. It's casual elegance personified!

    Wishing you and your family and your loved ones a very happy 2022. Thank you for all your comments - you are a trooper! - and especially for your wonderful email. It's one of the nicest letters I've ever received, and I can't tell you how much it means to me - I have read it many times and it always moves me to tears.

    A huge hug to you, my friend. XO She

    1. I'm petite too! I thrifted the black one, I think it's supposed to be a midi skirt? And the striped one runs short so it works well for me! :)
