I say probably, because I’m writing this in advance (shock horror!). If you saw my packing post, then you know that I’ve only taken 7 items of clothing to Malta. So there’s a fair likelihood that this is what I’m wearing today, and if not, then definitely one day this week… However, with the magic of technology, these pictures were actually taken on Tuesday, in thundery, rainy old England!
Skirt: New Look
Necklace: New Look
Now, I am not excessively tall – only 5’6″ – but I find it very hard to get maxi skirts or dresses that fall to the floor and don’t hover tentatively an inch or so above my ankles. This pink silky skirt is the perfect length, but I will warn you that it doesn’t react well to water. Even a spot of clean water will leave a mark. This is actually the second of these skirts I’ve had – after hand-washing the first to get out one of the water spots, it shrunk a good couple of inches, so I took it back and got a new one. I haven’t washed this one yet, because I want to at least get a holiday’s worth of wear out of it! I’ll let you know how I get on, but just a caveat.
I spotted this top in Oasis and fell in love immediately. £16 is a little bit much for a vest top, but student discount helped slightly, and it was just so pretty I had to have it! And the pink matches this skirt perfectly. I also adore this antiqued-gold statement necklace that I picked up in the New Look January sale – every time I wear it I get compliments on it, and it goes with so many things!
So, I may well be wearing this today – what do you think?
