Mlle Gabrielle Skirt from Alight-Review and Giveaway

        Sometimes when you need something cute and different the best place to look is online. I swear I could online shop for hours! So when I am on the look out for plus size clothing, alight is a good place to start!
        I'm not sure if Winter got the memo that it is indeed time for Spring, but it is just around the corner! So soon it will be time to break out the skirts, dresses, sandals and short sleeves. 
        I am all about switching it up when it comes to my clothes. Sometimes I like to wear t-shirts and sometimes I like to wear dresses, and then other times I just hang out in pajamas all day. When I look for skirts though, I like long, flowy skirts with tons of volume, or some kind of fun detail, and I really liked the shape of this Mlle Gabrielle skirt. 
       The skirt, from the new line to be released in May, is 100% cotton with a 100% polyester lining so the skirt has a really great flowy feel to it, and with the lining you don't have to worry about it showing anything. The skirt itself has exposed finished seams on the pieced together side panels to give the skirt a little something extra, but sadly this detail is lost in the print of the skirt. 
        The print is a really pretty almost navy blue shade, with flowers and when you look at it up close you can see it has almost a grid-like pattern of yellow and black going through the whole thing, this gives the close up view of the skirt almost a digital pattern. Personally the print as a whole is a little busy for me with all the details but overall is still a great piece.
Is this not the CUTEST?!

         The length of the skirt I am assuming is supposed to hit between the knee and mid calf but I am on the crazy-short side so it is a touch long for me but still looks nice on, and the elastic waist is really comfortable. I think it would look really nice paired with a simple white top and some great sandals, or a cute pair of wedges.
        If skirts aren't your thing they also have a great selection of tops, pants, and plus size dresses
