Pretty in Plaid

I have enjoyed wearing this skirt immensely over the past couple of years. This pretty plaid number is by Swedish Designer, Maria Westerlind. These days, Maria prefers designing her range of coats and dresses, so sadly for me, their won't be a second skirt to add to my collection any time soon.

I purchased this Maria Westerlind plaid skirt at Diva Scandinavia, a boutique specialising in designer garments from Scandinavia, just as the name implies. The customer service is impeccable. Nestled along the busy sea-side suburb of Port Melbourne, I would highly recommend adding this boutique on your 'to visit' list, if you haven't done so already.












This pretty plaid skirt has primary colours of red, navy, yellow, which coordinate really well with many pieces in my existing wardrobe. I have also styled it with a Breton navy and white silk/cashmere 3/4 sleeved sweater, for some French chic (seen here)!

I really love the fact this skirt has pockets. Since I'm a cold-bod, my hands freeze during the colder months. But not with this skirt! Made from a high percentage of wool, it's super warm and being fully lined, the itch factor is completely eliminated.


I have styled this skirt with my new By Malene Birger grey cashmere sweater. Versatility is a key factor in every purchase I make, and this sweater is no exception. You may have seen me wearing it with jeans in a recent post (seen here & here).

My weekend has been very productive, as well as relaxing. It's so important to have a happy balance in life. How was your weekend? Did you get up to much mischief?


Have a great week!


Yours in style,
