Floral for Spring, how original, says Meryl Streep’s character in the Devil Wears Prada. How VERY original indeed. Except for me, I didn’t really GET the whole floral thing. giant flowers plastered all over me is not something I was keen to experience. But this year, I’m not sure if it’s all the blogging or the trying of new stuff or what, but I’ve fallen in love. I want floral everything. Blazers {did you see the matching blazer to his skirt? It rocks!}, pants, skirts and dresses, of course. Floral baby.

Now let’s talk about the skirt. I requested it in a size 20. I’m still pretty much a 20/22 and this baby is snug. My other Virtu skirts were all a 20. So keep this in mind when shopping. It’s got a little less stretch then the other similar skirts, I think because of the longer, narrower cut. It is the same stretch fabric that has a good density to pull in the little bulges and bumps while giving you freedom of movement.

Virtu have gotten rid of the waist band I hated and had unpicked on my other skirts. You know, the one with elastic but rolled over and stitched at the sides? The one that rolls over and over and just bulks up and cuts you off. So this small change gets an enthusiastic thumbs up from me. Watch the fit and you’ll be as happy as I am. But you’ll be able to bend over a bit more. HA. Lucky you.

When this skirt first arrived I imagined it with a white top, then pink, then yellow, orange and finally decided to go with the black. The best part about it is that I wore it to work with a black tee and khaki coloured heels and it was really fresh and classic. You can just pick up colours from the detail and run with it. Such a versatile print, for sure. A little bit more low-key than a tropical print. Which has its place, of course but sometimes it’s nice to be a little more subtle. Because of ALL that we also grabbed photos of this skirt with a loose fit sheer, orange top which I’ll share with you another time. There HAS to be a limit to how many photos you should share of yourself in a single post, right? Oh heck, one more!
