When GowithOh challenged us to put together an outfit for Paris, I immediately thought of a flouncy midi skirt. Of course, I would’ve liked to waltz in a maxi dress with a trail but thought I’d stick to a more practical alternative since I wouldn’t have a red carpet following me around town 😉
I opted for a bright midi skirt from ASOS for our date. The skirt holds its shape well but I added a mesh petticoat under it to make it extra-flouncy. The petticoat gives it a lot more volume and lends a modern touch to the midi length.
I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple – a basic black bandeau top, black heels, bejewelled gem earrings, and a simple box clutch bag. Most days, I’m all for embracing messy hair (something you’ve witnessed in one-too-many outfit posts 😉 ) but I do take the trouble of preening them a bit on the rare occasion. This was just one of those days – I opted for a sleek low bun to compliment the outfit.
Summer in Paris feels like a technicolour musical – how about an outfit to corroborate the mood?
