OOTD - Pale Blue Maxi Skirt


'Tis the season for the maxi skirt, and this Noob couldn't be happier!  As someone who's body mimic's the shape of a pear, a maxi skirt is the perfect way to stay cool in the summer without being uncomfortable.  Long time readers know how fond I am of my blush pink maxi skirt, so I had decided a few months ago that I needed to add another to my collection.  Imagine my delight when I saw this pale, flowy beauty at Zara.  This maxi skirt is perfect and although Zara describes the colour as a pearled grey, to me I pick up more of a pale blue.  Paired with a simple black haltered crop top, I think I've found my summer go-to outfit for warm nights.

As much as I absolutely love this beautiful maxi skirt, buyer beware - it runs extremely large.  I had to get the waist taken in over four inches, and may even bring the skirt back to the tailor to take up the hem.  I ordered the smallest size, so keep that in mind when choosing your own.  As a petite girl, I'm no stranger to taking my clothing to the tailor for some altering and definitely recommend it to anyone who struggles with finding a good fit.



Of course Fritz needed to make a cameo.  Just a girl walking her pet monster, your typical sight on the streets of Toronto!

What do you think about the maxi skirt?  Summer staple, or best kept in the closet?  Let me know!
