SHADE OF BLUE.
I bought this sky blue maxi skirt long time ago but I haven't had chance to wear it. It was my love at the first sight when I saw it on a website, I knew I just had to buy it. 3 months later (which was last week), I took it out of the wardrobe to let it see the sun and enjoy the wind. After which, I kinda regretted, I should have done this much earlier.
Having a meeting with my client next to the swimming pool that day was totally out of my expectation. The meeting was good but the fantastic swimming pool right next to us made it even better. It's a perfect location for my sky blue maxi skirt to show its best. And because this is full circle skirt, it gives me so much more movement whenever I walk. I love how it made me feel ultra-feminine and beautiful. Literally, I could even do the signature Marilyn Monroe pose if the wind was strong enough.
By the way just a side note, if you are a Latin- Ballroom dancer like myself, this skirt is perfect for your Paso Doble dance practice. I had similar one in purple and I loved it.
I used to have doubt when it comes to maxi skirt because I thought it would make me look smaller than I actually am. Not anymore! The always-worked-trick is to highlight your waist with a belt and keep your layers sleek and chic. Here I chose the skinny belt and a form-fitting denim jacket on top to counteract with the flowing and round skirt's shape at the bottom.
And If you are not sure what color to match with your sky blue maxi skirt, go back to the limited-less- inspiration resource: nature. I paired my blue maxi skirt with white camisole, white denim jacket and white heels inspired by the blue sky and the white clouds. Fashion sometimes can be just simple like that.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this outfit and if you love this style as much as I do, here are the links for you to buy this look.
