The Maxi Skirt OOTD

Skirt - Monsoon
Boob tube - Primark
Watch - Michael Kors

Apparently today is the hottest day of the year so far, to be honest I'm not feeling it simply due to the amount of clouds that are in the sky making it overcast and not sunny! Which I'm not a fan of but hey it's typical for us to moan whatever the weather so I'm just sticking to that rule. The weather also always makes it hard to know what to wear..

I opted for my new (and very first) maxi skirt. I've always loved the maxi skirt/dress look but I can hold my hands up and say that I have never bought either, shock horror! I'm quite tall for a girl and have always worried about looking like "I've shrunk my maxi in the wash" look, basically it being too short for my height. But after trying a couple on at work the other day I took the plunge and purchased this lovely jersey one. This one is the perfect length for me whilst wearing it high waisted so it was pretty much instantly sold! It sits just above the ground so there's no dragging it along the floor look either, bonus. Honestly after trying on this one it was hard to stray away from it.

It's a very simple striped style, navy and white, which then ends up at the bottom with a slight aztec pattern which I love. The stripes vary in width which makes the skirt that bit more interesting and even more so when you reach the pattern along the bottom. Due to it's jersey material it makes it super comfortable as well and definitely not restricted.

Also being someone who's not a massive fan of their legs it's a nice alternative to trousers and still gives you that cover up you're after whilst still being able to show you're figure around the waist/hip area. I have teamed this with a cropped boob tube, again not a huge fan of my stomach but the fact that you only show a tiny amount then it doesn't completely phase me. If you do not wish to do this then I would alternatively wear this with a baggy t-shirt or vest tucked in so you still get that definition of figure around your waist.

Now I'm convinced that whatever shape or height you are, you can find the right maxi skirt for you! And I honestly think these would suit any shape when styled in the correct way. If you're like me and nearly giving up then don't! I think this is going to be one of my summer staples :)
