This maxi skirt from Zaful is the only orange piece of clothing in my closet. I have a couple coral tops, but absolutely no orange. This skirt appealed to me because I wanted to try the color and it has an elastic waist. It's very lightweight and a little see through so I wore it with a slip and it was fine. Although the waist sizes are quite small, I would only order 1 size up. Typically I am a small and ordered a large because the medium had a 25" waist size (um, nope), but the large is currently a bit loose so I think the medium would have been fine. The length is good even for you leggy girls. At 5'5" this dragged on the ground until I pulled it over my waist and put on my new favorite Steve Madden wedges. The extra waist room might come in handy soon though. At 13 weeks with my second, things are definitely starting to get tight. It's funny because I hid my bump for as long as I could when I was pregnant with Claire. For this one, now that people know, I get excited if you can see a little bump through my clothes! As my husband would say, I became a human pin cushion for it! All worth it.

  1. I'm seeing orange everywhere, but It's not a colour I'd usually choose, I'm going to redress that idea in the near future. x Jacqui

  2. Yes elastic waists are the BEST in pregnancy! I love the chambray with the orange too, this is a really nice outfit combination :)

    So looking forward to seeing your baby bump grow! :)

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week :)

  4. I have recently added some orange pieces to my closet, too. It is such a fun and vibrant color, but definitely one of those colors that is hard to wear if you don't get the exact right shade for your skin tone. But wearing it on a skirt removes that issue, doesn't it?! You look super cute and I love the way you have styled it. I can't wait to see how adorable you will be rocking maternity clothes!

  23. What a beautiful color on you! I love skirts with elastic waists! I owned one in cobalt but the hem unraveled and I couldn't repair it. I love maxi and midi lengths despite the fact I'm short :)
