Surprised by the maxi skirt

Its been a really long time since I’ve worn a really long skirt!

But a sale rail bargain at ZARA – in boho-y, cream crinkled cotton – has made me fall for the maxi length all over again. I can’t find it on the website now, but this simpler green one is rather tempting, too.

A long, flowy skirt – especially when it’s not clingy in any way – is a lovely way of keeping cool without constantly feeling self-conscious about how much leg you’re bearing (especially if you’re feeling a bit pasty/bristly/both!).

Today, I teamed mine with a simple black, satin-y tee and silver sneakers (Superga – my absolute favourite for comfort and simple style).

It was a surprisingly fun, cool and comfy option for a sunny afternoon.

How about you? Do you love a maxi skirt, and, if so, how do you wear yours?
