|Top: Topshop, Skirt: M&S, Shoes: Mulberry|
I've never owned a maxi skirt before, it was just one of those things that never really appealed. I'm not a huge skirt person anyway so for years I've never really given it a second though, quite content with owning just a few maxi dresses instead. While shopping before I went on holiday though, I had I guess what you could call a eureka moment. I needed to get a maxi skirt. Why? I'm not sure. Do I regret it? Definitely not.
I had been planning on getting a black one, that would have been the sensible option. It goes with a lot, it's easy to wear. No problem. Then, I found this gorgeous red one and I fell in love. Is it the most practical of colours for matching tops with? No. It's pretty limited to black, white and a few other exceptions. Regardless, I love it all the same and I'm going to be wearing it for summers to come.
P.s. Ten points to whoever can work out the song reference in my title. I've been listening to the soundtrack non-stop recently! Hint: It's a popular musical.
