To The MAX...

Pleated Maxi skirt: Zara, Leopard print belt: Topshop, Bandeau: New Look

So it seems that my new winter staple is the same as last season’s. It is the maxi skirt: an all year rounder, fulfilling my every need. Complementing to all figures and most importantly, complementing to mine – not meant in a smug sense of course – though for my small frame (at 5ft2) it works wonders. Hello elongation.

I wore the pleated one above for my cousins 21st birthday. Indeed, a night out without something short and fitted doesn’t really seem like a night out, but the change was healthy (as they say) – and I feel that having my midriff on show balanced out the formality of the skirt.

The answer to whether the maxi look will work for winter is a 100% yes. Throw in a wedge boot and slouched jumper in the mix and you're good to go.

Next stop? Topshop. Their emerald green side split maxi is pulling on my heartstrings. Even more so because it’s in the maternity section! Sad times. This is where my sewing skills come into practice. By the end of the week that skirt shall be mine…

P.S. I finally jumped on twitter, follow me :) ...
