OOTD - Blush Maxi Skirt for Summer



After moaning and groaning about not being able to wear my favourite blush maxi skirt for the summer (see posts here and here), I finally have an opportunity to wear it in the warm weather.  My husband and I are heading to a barbecue and the weather forecast in Toronto promises warmth and sunshine - the perfect combination.  I paired this blush pink skirt with a crisp white tank top, some casual sandals and added a leather print belt for good measure.  Read on for full outfit details and additional photos.




Blush Maxi Skirt - Forever 21 (old - similar), Camisole - Aritzia, Leopard Belt - Asos
Sandals - Old Navy (similar), Sunglasses - Karen Walker


I picked up this sweet little necklace in a boutique in Paris.  Although I don't usually end up buying much while on vacation - I feel my time is better spent sightseeing - I am always glad when I do.  This tiny Eiffel Tower necklace is made of inexpensive material, but always brings back amazing memories when I wear it - making me feel like a million bucks.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - sentimental value is worth so much more than any material or brand.



HAHA - if you zoom in, you can see my still-in-pijamas husband taking the photo, with my grumpy little chihuahua trying to escape!  

How did you spend this Father's Day Sunday?  I hope you had just as fantastic of weather!

  1. I love this skirt even more every time you post an outfit with it! I have an emerald green maxi skirt that I'll be busting out pretty soon (the rain was just too miserable this past week).

    1. I love a maxi skirt, but I agree - the worst thing to wear in the rain! Maybe an outfit photo on the blog when you're able to wear it? *fingers crossed*

  2. The forecast held up all week until it was overcast all day yesterday downtown! :( I was so sad, haha.
    Hope your BBQ has some rays of light, though.

    This looks like the perfect bbq outfit - also congrats on the Lauren Conrad's blog feature.

    1. I know, it wasn't as warm as I would have liked but we managed to get a few periods of sunshine at the BBQ! Nothing a few margaritas couldn't fix ;)

    1. It was such dumb luck that I found that necklace - I stumbled upon it in a little boutique and bought it right away - which is so out of character for me, since I second guess every purchase on vacation and usually just don't end up getting anything! Thanks for the comment :D
