Yesterday, I taught the BRAIN TRAIN High School Entrance Test Batch 3 reviewees for the first time. Since I was to teach the Grammar Handbook for four hours straight (meaning, standing up the whole time!) plus another two hours in the afternoon, I opted to wear something comfortable–something that won’t require me to wear heels. Enter my gorgeous maxi skirt!
I could have paired this Aztec/Indian-print maxi skirt with a plain upper torso hugging blouse, but I did not have anything plain and short-sleeved that complements the skirt (my other figure-skimming plain, short-sleeved tops compete with the design of this “statement” skirt). Thus, I opted to pair it with a spaghetti-strap cami with a high neckline. I chose this cami because of the delicate lace that’s strewn with pale blue threads. Since the top I was wearing was very simple and I decided not to wear any necklace, I went for chandelier earrings whose color combination is quite similar to my skirt (olive + blue-green). I finished my look with a beaded flat pair of black sandals which, on hindsight, was competing with my statement skirt for attention. Looking at my photos, I realize I should have worn simple thong sandals or flat doll shoes.
- Maxi skirt from Pois Italy
- Unbranded white cami
- Bejeweled black flat sandals from Mendrez
- Chandelier earrings from me (yes, ako! I made these earrings about 8 years ago!)
Tonight, as I googled maxi skirts, I saw this photo of stylish actress Rachel Bilson in an outfit similar to mine (I swear, I saw this just tonight) on fashionoftheyear.org:
As I googled further, I realized that Rachel Bilson has a penchant for maxi skirts!
I don’t blame her, for I too absolutely love maxi skirts! As I’ve said, they remove the need for me to wear heels. Why?
- the part between the shin and the ankle will be hidden (which heels help make look slimmer)
- maxi skirts make not-so-tall girls look and feel tall (I don’t recommend maxi skirts to really petite girls because they might “swallow”/overwhelm the very petite wearer)
Me thinks (I know, I know, sinasadya ko) I’m going to invest on more maxi skirts! And, as early as now, I’m warning you that this maxi skirt is most definitely going to do a comeback on this blog…of course, I’ll pair it with a different top and wear a simpler footwear.
