red chiffon maxi skirt











skirt: eBay
top: vintage shop (similar here)
belt: primark
jacket: primark (old)
shoes: clothing at tesco*
bag: eBay
sunglasses: stolen off my mum (probably primark though!)
nails: ciate ditch the heels*

I bought this maxi skirt for my holiday as I like to take a maxi skirt or a dress incase I get burnt and need something to protect my legs. I actually purchased this in black (what a surprise!) but the seller "accidentally" sent me the red one, Although it is definitely not something I would have picked out myself surprisingly I really do like it. I wasn't sure at first and did consider sending it back but I do think it's very "me" in a very "not me" way. I've not linked the seller I bought it from as its now sold out but Im linking the same skirt from a different seller so you may get the skirt that you actually ordered! Wearing sunglasses today as my hay fever has been terrible, I did stock up on pills so I should be OK going forward! I also wore my Metallica tee which I seem to be wearing a lot to the gym so I haven't actually worn it out much, but I like it's pairing with this skirt!

  3. What a happy accident, because that color is perfect. Such a bright red, and it certainly looks great on you. Love the Metallica shirt too, this outfit is pretty rad.
