Taking it to the max

Hello there lovelies. How are we all this afternoon? Today we bought our first maxi-skirt in about 15 years. We last wore one as a university work experience kid at a marketing firm. That particular item was charcoal, had a straight skirt with a slit up the back and was made of some horrible scractchy material. We thought we looked professional. In hindsight it probably looked horrendous.

Anyway, the skirt we purchased from Portmans today couldn’t be further from our first attempt.

It’s electric blue, sits on the high-ish side of our waist, and is long and floaty. Here’s a pic so you can see what we are talking about.

We’ll be teaming it with a simple white tank (try Supre – decent quality and cheap as chips so you can get a new one every summer) and natural wooden beads. We also bought these cute colourful, patent sandals from Dotti today which we think will go well.

So, if you haven’t yet embraced the maxi-skirt, snap to it lovelies. It’s super flattering and perfect for those days when you run out of time to shave your legs!

One little word of warning though – while this full skirted maxi looks fab on those of us with a little height (think anything above 5’6″), approach with caution if you are on the shorter side. Maybe try a straighter style maxi skirt in a nice jersey material. Won’t swamp you.

Have a lovely night. x.
