Look at me go! I am on a roll with these trends! Haha. Although, again, I’m a bit behind with this one. Metallic skirts were all the rage for the holidays, and while this is a trend that does appear to still be going strong…I do see why they were so popular around the holidays. I mean, sparkly and shimmery is perfect for that time of year! But it can still work for the rest of the year as well. Pairing it with a more casual blouse or sweater and a pair of flats would tone it down for more daily use… but I was heading out to a dinner in the city, and heels and pearls were just what I was going for!
(UPDATE: Sorry! This skirt is currently out of stock! I have linked to almost identical skirts below, in the “where to find it section.”) And this particular skirt is nice because 1.) It’s inexpensive. About $19! Need I say more? 2.) The length. I always love midi length skirts! 3.) It doesn’t wrinkle easily. This is super important for me because I HATE ironing pleats. Haha. But I haven’t had to worry about that with this skirt! 4.) It’s versatile. This will work with quite a few different colors and will be easy to dress up or down depending on the day.
This skirt is a wee bit scratchy, though. Not bad, just not silky smooth either. (Just an FYI.) The elastic waistband is a bit thinner than I’m used to as well. I think it’s a bit less flattering around the waist than wider waistbands tend to be. But, this is me just being really nit-picky. For the price, this skirt is a winner!
And now changing gears here, I’m really excited because I’ve finally gotten over the weird dislike I had for Instagram stories! (Instagram’s version of Snapchat, basically.) I had avoided Instagram stories initially because I’ve decided to keep Snapchat sacred as a personal account. Nothing that goes on my Snapchat is related to the blog…and I only have about 20 Snapchat friends, haha.
But I finally started posting to my Instagram story this weekend, and it’s been tons of fun! I really like the extra level of interaction I get with my Insta friends from it. My plans going forth will be to use it as a way to give little glimpses into life in Sydney, as well as any adventures I go on. Which will come in handy this week, because on Wednesday I’m heading to Cairns, which is where the Great Barrier Reef is! So, I’ll be sharing bits of my trip on my Instagram story if you’d like to follow along, just click here. 🙂
If I’m not already following you on Instagram, leave me your handle in the comments! I love finding new people to follow on Instagram. And what are your thoughts on the metallic skirt trend? Let me know in the comments.
