MY NEW MAXI SKIRT IN BOLD STRIPES

Hello, dear friends, hope you are safe and doing well
 MY NEW MAXI SKIRT IN BOLD STRIPES
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might remember that I quite often mention the fact that for various reasons I am not lucky with on-line shopping for clothes.  I was so excited when Zara in Australia went on-line and I was able to buy a skirt that I saw on the rack but which was not available in my size.  It attracted my attention by its bold diagonally run wide stripes in black, white, red and bright blue colours and I thought it would be a nice addition to my skirt range.  Sadly, when it arrived and I put it on, it didn't fit properly.  Although I am a standard size M, it felt quite tight around my waist and hips so I decided to return it.

Long story short, I missed the deadline for return and had to keep the skirt.  I attributed the whole experience to a learning curve, write off the loss and move on.  Eventually, I managed to lose some weight and decided to give the skirt a second chance but it was easier said then done.

I guess, my biggest challenge was to find a top that would go well with it.  Since the skirt is belt-less, wearing something tucked in was not an option.  I tried to pair it with a loose fitting top, but it didn’t work either.  Finally, after a few failed attempts, I settled for this black short sleeve fitted top and a pair of high heel white open toe shoes.

  1. Bold striped skirts seem to be showing up quite a bit. I'm glad you are able to finally wear this. Isn't it funny, you wouldn't think finding a coordinating top that works would be such a challenge. Anyway, this is a striking look and I hope you get a lot of wear out of it.

  4. That's a great striped midi skirt on you! It looks so nice with the black top, i think black is always a good option with a colourful skirt! :)

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend :) It's a rainy day here - perfect weather for continuing to isolate at home!

  5. thank you Mica, we have a lovely weather here in Sydney and a lot of people out and about so sometimes it's quite challenging to maintain the social distancing.
    Have a nice week :)

  8. See, the skirt was meant to be! I love the bold colors in it and the style. The black blouse is a beautiful choice as it always the striped colors to shine.

  10. This often happens to me Anna. It's good when you get to know a brand and know what sizes fit you best. However I find different items fit differently in Zara and I never buy online from there apart from shoes. I think you got lucky with the skirt though. It look fabulous on you xx
