summer essential: the black maxi skirt

 Skirt: Forever 21 // Top: Urban Outfitters (old) // Scarf: H&M // Sandals: Gap (old, similar here
// Bracelets: Urban Outfitters & Forever 21

I have finally found a black maxi at none other than my trusty Forever 21. 
I thought I'd kick off the official first day of summer by showcasing what is sure to be a summer staple in my wardrobe.
When it comes to other items in this outfit, I know what you're thinking.. how can you wear a scarf on the first day of summer?! Well my friends, this photo was taken last night.. but in reality Alberta is a very unpredictable place when it comes to weather. It's still very breezy here and not exactly the summer heat I am used to.
When it was finally sunny last night, my trusty photographer and I drove around our tiny town to find an inspiring background.. who knew there was such a cool graffiti wall? I love it! 

Have a lovely first day of summer!
