You’ve probably noticed that my personal style consists primarily of classic pieces and colors and silhouettes I feel comfortable in. I’m not much of a risk taker in that regard — I know what I like and what makes me feel good. So when I spot an item of clothing that makes this much of a statement, I’m usually content to admire it from afar on Instagram or on other blogs. But when my friend Katie (of the brilliant clothing and furniture line Katie Kime) sent me this otomi maxi skirt from her fall collection, I couldn’t help but fall in love.
The fitted waist satisfies my love of fit-and-flare styles and the otomi print is a bold update on my love of all things blue and white. I tried it on in at the office and everyone agreed it’s the kind of piece you’d wear if you were hosting Christmas dinner or being photographed for House Beautiful (both life goals of mine for sure!) — an item that will have all eyes on you. So while my love of all things classic and preppy persists, I get a little giddy thinking about having this more unexpected piece hanging in my closet.
Um, is it wrong to plan a party around a skirt?!
P.S. If you like this style, you have to check out the banana leaf print too. So chic!
