Remember last year when everyone was talking midi skirts? Midi skirt here, midi skirt there – it was like the maxi skirt got dumped for a younger version of herself (RIP maxi skirt). Amidst all that talk, I couldn’t contain myself so dived straight into a quest to find the perfect mid-length skirt. I’ve never been a believer in love at first sight, apart from when I see a sweet-filled supermarket aisle and a zillion tubs of Häagen-Dazs ice cream. However, during some very intense online shopping sessions hunting for the perfect midi skirt, I came across this bubblegum pink number from Topshop and everything changed.
It was love at first sight. Why? It reminded me of Princess Peach and the approximately 19382020748027392020 hours I spent as a child playing Super Mario Bros. on my Game Boy trying to save her (alas, all in vain though and needless to say that my school grades took a hammering during this ill-fated (but potentially) world-changing mission). Nostalgia got me once again.
