Midi skirts were pretty much non-existent in my wardrobe up until last year. I always thought midi skirts didn’t suit me, and always stuck to mini skirts. Sometimes, a bit too mini. However, since then I discovered the many joys of wearing midi skirts – and this particular midi has been one of my faves this summer!
Isn’t it a beaut!?
This particular midi skirt is from the brand 405 Story – an online fashion store inspired by California’s sunny coast. The brand focuses on simple, yet flattering silhouettes and fun prints (which totally sums up this skirt!) and uses luxe fabrics.
If you like classic styles with a quirky twist, you will LOVE 405 Story.
As you can see from the photos, the Emily Midi Skirt comes in a bright yellow and red tulip print, which basically SCREAMS spring/summer! It’s the perfect piece to brighten up any outfit. The first thing I noticed when I got my hands on the skirt is just how good the quality feels – you can tell that a lot of care and attention has gone into the design as well as the making of the skirt.
Apart from being fully lined, the skirt is designed to be fitted at the waist and wide box pleats create lots of volume, making this skirt super flattering (and hiding away any food babies!). It’s also got a side zip fastening, and wait for it… it’s even got pockets! A skirt with pockets, what else could a girl ever want!?
Here I teamed the skirt with a plain t-shirt for a casual daytime look – and also to show you just how easy this skirt is to style! However, you can also wear this with a pretty shirt or blouse for a smarter look. It’s the perfect piece to wear to a picnic or to a summer party, and is just so versatile.
