The affordable midi skirt i'm wearing this season

I never used to be a midi skirt person because I genuinely thought they were the kind of thing my grandma would have worn. Despite seeing them everywhere in magazines and on Instagram, it took me quite a long time to see them as something that I could potentially look good in. I thought that only models over 5ft9 would be the type of people to suit this type of skirt so I am genuinely shocked that a few months later I'm being photographed showing how I've been wearing it. But then one day I was browsing through H&M on my lunch break and I stumbled across this printed calf-length pleated skirt and I thought I'd push myself out of my comfort zone and buy it to see if I could feel comfortable in it. Very much to my surprise, I put it on and instantly felt pretty damn good in it. I started swishing around my bedroom feeling a bit like a princess and am now constantly on the lookout for more midi-skirts to add to my collection. The thing I love about this particular skirt is that even though it is a subtle animal print, it is quite understated and doesn't look like I'm making a huge effort with my look. In this outfit, I've paired it with some Primark boots and my fave slouchy  H&M jumper and I feel confident yet in it works for a casual weekend look. 

I'm trying really hard to be a bit more responsible with my shopping recently as I want to buy fewer trend items and instead get more clothes that work well for work and for evenings and weekends. This skirt is one that fits perfectly into that category as during the day I've been matching it with a white blouse or shirt, at the weekend I've been dressing it down with t-shirts and jumpers, and then I've been dressing it up with a black tight body or a crop top for the evenings. It is so versatile! What do you think?
