Soft as a feather, stiff as a board

Photobucket

I bought this feather maxi skirt a few weeks ago, however the weather took a turn for the worse and thought I would save it for a sunny day. A wet long maxi skirt is not the way forward. The skirt is perfect for beach wear, day wear and night wear - dependant on the styling - obviously. I got stopped at least 3 times in the street (buy guys), complimenting me on it. Stranger things have happened.

<3 the whole outfit - though I have to agree with the comment above - I thought boys didn't like maxis either! The wonders of the fashion universe...

Love the skirt! I bought a maxi skirt from H&M on the weekend, can't wait to have the weather to wear it out.

This is a lovely outfit! Have to make the most out of these summery days aye! xx

ellieand said...

Sounds like this one's a bit of an eye-catcher! You can carry off maxi styles so well, I always find them a bit scary for some reason, but with a print like that I'd be tempted- loving feathers atm x

That is such a lovely skirt. Definitely perfect for the summer. I can imagine that it's not fun wearing maxis in poor weather.
