Maxi it up!

Hello everyone,

I really wanted to do this post outside, however, the weather had other ideas. So you all get a lovely view of my hallway instead (I actually hit my heading taking these pictures as the ceilings are far to low for me and my heels!). I purchased this maxi skirt just after I finished my exams when the weather was boiling hot and from then on the weather has just got worse and worse, maybe I jinxed it a bit by buying the skirt?!

This is actually the first maxi skirt I have owned, I know shocker, everyone says how amazing they are but I never thought they would suit me. That was until I saw this beauty. The moment I tried it on I knew I had to have it.

Maxi skirts are so versatile, I love pairing this one with plain vests and wearing them with converse for a casual laid back look and then like in this post you can also pair them with black wedges for a slightly more glammed up look.

So what do you all think?

Black vest - Topshop
Waistcoat - Topshop (very old)
Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Wedges - New Look

Necklace - gift

Bracelets - gifts
Ring - Topshop

What do you all think of maxi skirts? If you own a maxi skirt what do you like pairing them with?

I hope you are all having a great summer so far, even though the weather as been a bit miserable.

Also there is still time to enter my GIVEAWAY where you can win a cute little pendant and 2 Barry M nail polishes, check it out here...
