Maxi Love

In keeping with the summery trend theme today I'd like to talk maxi. Now, I am a curvy petite, so some people may not believe that a maxi skirt or dress would be good for a gal with my shape and stature. However, I just cannot get enough of them!   
Maxi's epitomize effortless comfort for the spring, summer and fall. You can buy one in the beginning of the season and still be able to wear it well into the next season. With different jewels and shoes, the possibilities are endless!
Check out my new Pinterest board Maxi Dress Love for some of my favorite pics and inspiration on how to style the perfect maxi.
Currently I'm on the hunt for a loose and flow-y black skirt, which you think would be easy to find right? Nope! The hunt continues...
Here's a quick look at how I've styled a few of my favorite pieces from my closet and a preview of a newer skirt I'm not quite sold on yet. 

Maxi: Charlotte Russe (old)
Vest: Converse One Star via Target
Belt: Dots ($8!)

Maxi: Old Navy (last seen here)
Gladiators: JustFab (old)
Tee: Gap
Necklace: via Amazon
Toes:  Nicole by OPI in Strike a Pose

Tee: Old Navy (last summer)
Nails: Gelish- You Glare I Glow (avail @ Sally Beauty Stores)
Side note: I bought these pieces to wear together originally and when I paired them SJL told me I looked like I was Napoleon Dynamite and I promptly switched to the white tee... but I still like the graphic tee with the ikat. men...

Tee: Gap
Dress: (worn as skirt) Charlotte Russe
Belt: Dots
Shoes: Dots
Dress: Charlotte Russe
Vest: Rock and Republic via Kohls

Sorry for the blurry pics! I didn't realize I was fidgeting so much until I was editing!
Aaaaand this is my new skirt. I bought it and tried it on at home....I'm not completely sold. I'm in need of a black skirt but this is not what I had in mind. Is it too "young"? Or is it because my legs are showing and I don't believe that's what a maxi skirt is for?
I'm thinking more flow and less lace. 
But its lace and its feminine. 
I'm torn help me out
I've styled it a little up and a little down...what do you think?
Your comments are always welcome! I love hearing from different points of view!

Tee: Old Navy (vintage style is my favorite!)
Skirt: Charlotte Russe-  love this
Shoes: Target (clearance! $6)
Top: Mossimo via Target
Belt: vintage from my Memere (I love saying that I have a vintage piece!!)
Sandals: KMart (love this style so much I bought 2!)
