The maxi skirt trend has been something I dabbled in during spring and summer, but wasn’t completely sold on due to my petite height. However, when I spotted this chiffon one, in the most delightful pale pink, I knew it was a match when it passed the swish test. It’s when you put on a skirt or dress and immediately want to shake your hips, making an ever so soft, swishing sound as the fabric sways. And if you’re lucky, little, blue birds magically appear, fluttering by, throwing gold star-dust at you, while you twirl about the store to the sound of their melodic chirping.
There was one minor problem–a bulky, cheap polyester liner that needed to be removed. Sheer has been all the rage for a couple of seasons, I thought, why not! Now the skirt sits better and I love the romantic, cozy, boho vibe created with a long cardigan, brown buckle boots and heidi braids (my first). The styling was inspired by recent Free People lookbooks, particularly this image on my pinterest, here. How do you think I did?
On another note, does anyone else like musicals as much as I do? Some of my favorite classics include the Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Wizard of Oz.
