Mini skirts for me personally are not my preferred option to wear. I used to love them when I was younger but now I like to have as much fabric as possible. Lets face, it is not a nice feeling the fear your skirt could show it all with a gust of wind or getting up from an awkward seat. For me a mini skirt has to be amazing to wear it and once again Zara has captured my attention with something I would normally say no to. For me there are so many things that make his skirt special, firstly of course it is the embroidery and secondly the fit. I decided because of my height that thigh high boots would be more suitable, as I am tall and could easily cheapen this beautiful skirt when its anything but. However now that we are in the middle of a heat wave here in Ireland I am sure a strappy sandal would be a lot more comfortable in this lovely weather. Although this is the summer collection, I know this is a piece I will continue to rotate in my wardrobe. Zara is one high street brand that is standing out this summer from the rest. I love everything about this skirt from the color to the attention of detail, it is one you need to invest in and quickly.
