*Resort to the Maxi!*
Hey guys and Dolls
Sorry this edition of the ASOS diaries is late, has been a bit hectic this week with being ill, and then I was working at our University open day so I have been well and truly knackered! I have been catching up on my sleep.
But this doll is bak with a vengeance and more new posts
This weekend I visited Edinburgh with my boyfriend; we had gorgeous weather and I got sunburnt! I thought it was perfect opportunity to break out my new maxi skirt. I have been searching for a while to find a cheap simple black bodycon maxi skirt but alas, every high street store turned up blank :( Bored one day I was trawling through the ASOS sale and I came across the below maxi skirt!!! YAY!
|Maxi skirt: ASOS|
Silk scarf: Peacocks
Shoes: old New Look
This ASOS maxi skirt fits like a glove, note the jersey bodycon material, and it also has a small slit up the back to give movement and freedom for your legs. It was very cheap, around £15, which I thought was pretty reasonable. I would like another maxi skirt that would allow more movement with a nice breezy thin material and not my in my favorite black colour, but again I haven't found any skirts that fit the bill.
This skirt from Motel might just be what I have been searching for! Its lustrous deep wine colour caught my eye instantly, and with gorgeous dramatic pleats this skirt is right on trend. It's in sale at £19! So go check it out at Motel Rocks - I'm waiting for money to fill my bank so I can rock this maxi skirt!!!
Here is some inspiration for styling your maxi skirt straight off the catwalk from designer Alice & Olivia's Resort collection 2012. I adore the monochrome look, but I also like how they have styled their statement maxi skirts with a vibrant block colour simple t-shirt, leaving accessories to texturize this smooth and flowing ensemble. I also loving their maxi dresses; the skinny belt helps to sinch in your waist giving form and figure where appropriate.
Watch out for more posts about my Edinburgh adventures coming soon!
