I am the queen of buying statement pieces without a specific occasion for them in mind. But there is nothing more haunting than perseverating over an article of clothing that you once passed up and `can no longer get your hands on. So when I came across this peach maxi skirt, I decided to scoop it up knowing the perfect springtime occasion would eventually present itself.
While eager to experiment with a full maxi for quite some time now, finding the right one was rather challenging. The whole potato sack thing doesn’t look good on a five foot frame! I knew the skirt had to be structured, and fitted at the waist…not to mention the right length. When I came across the “Glam Stripes Cutout Maxi Skirt” by chic wish, I knew it was going to be the right fit. Not only was it all of the above, but the length was customizable and the skirt was constructed out of see-through fabric. A shorter lining underneath sheer garments is one of my favorite product features – it allows you to show off some leg even though you are covered. I truly believe this detail resolves “short people problems.”
If pink isn’t your thing, I am happy to report this piece is also available in red or black. With spring flings on my mind, I chose “peach.” This time around, I styled it with an ivory button-down top – but not your average button-down! This shirt features a sleeveless bodice, a cropped hemline, and a cutout back. Incorporating a fitted feminine blouse is an easy way to balance out the fullness below. I polished off the look with a pearl belt, nude pumps, and a metallic pink clutch. I’m already dreaming about the black skirt with an edgy black bodysuit for wear during the autumn/winter months…
