Another day, another maxi skirt. I am slowly building up quite a collection of these little beauties and this is probably one of my favourites. I picked it up in the M&S sale (at the same time as these shoes) and have been waiting for an opportunity to wear it... It reminds me of a cross between this midi skirt and the pleated maxi skirt from Hobbs that was so popular, not bad for £12! I think Inslee must have been inspired by my outfit too, she posted this a couple of days after I wore this!

I loved the colour and the weight of the skirt as soon as I saw it and the slight sheen to it makes me think that it would look equally good dressed up as it does dressed down. The leopard belt provided a nice contrast and was the focal point for all the brown accessories...
I couldn't believe just how much material was in this skirt! I'm pretty sure I would have lifted off the ground with a sharp gust of wind here :P
Plus, the skirt is so long that I was able to wear my jeans underneath for an extra layer of warmth. Who says fashion is impractical?!
I think this may be the most luxurious of all the maxi skirts I own and I can't wait to pair it with dusky pinks and floral prints in spring!
Do you like pleated maxi skirts? How do you make fashion practical?
