Maxi lengths have been one style category that I usually avoid when shopping, however I flirted with the idea a few weeks ago when I walked past a clearance fixture in Zara that screamed '6.99'. Five minutes in the fitting room and one stripey maxi skirt later and I was hooked. I think it was the thigh high slit that sold it to me. I also thought that the light jersey material and navy and white stripes would make this a great transitional piece and the longer length is deal for cooler days.

My favourite way to wear the maxi right now is by throwing on an over sized jumper and slipping into my Stan Smiths for a simple yet super relaxed outfit that's just about warm enough for the spring chill. For high summer styles and holidays I would swap the jumper (obviously) for a loose cropped tee. I found that the jersey material of this particular skirt was too clingy when worn with tights underneath so this is definitely best worn bare legged. Hence Sunday was the perfect opportunity to finally let my legs breath and wear my new ray bans thanks to the sunshine gracing us at the weekend. I love how comfy and wearable this outfit is, I think I may have even found my new off duty equivalent to jeans and a tee. 
What are your favourite off duty pieces at the moment?
