Denim Skirts.

I wanted this but when I rang Aubin & Wills and they told me the length, I decided it was too short ......




Then I found this in Gap where the length was good but for some reason made me look like I had hips the size of Everest .....



And somehow I managed to end up with this from H&M which fitted perfectly .......



.And the bonus is whilst I was looking around the Net a Porter website, I spotted this .....





And if Ms Marant is doing plaited waistbands then this can only mean my skirt is cool!

.... in my dreams.

  1. Susie, you're a hoot! I'd never look at a denim skirt the same way again. Anything by IM is way cool. BTW, I featured you on my blog today.

    1. I know - I was so surprised when I read your latest post but that was such a lovely thing to do and really kind! I'm very much the blogging virgin but it has been great fun so far. I still haven't told any of my friends my blog url in case people start pointing at me in the school playground and lord knows what the mother in law will say when Grumps shows her the Zoo post :o) Thank you again.

    1. Hi Doro, lovely to meet you. Thank you for coming over to visit and wanting to follow - it's a lovely compliment. Marlene was too kind to put in such an auspicious word for me. I just had a quick popover to your blog and love it so I will be following you back. I love meeting all these super fashionable ladies out there - i don't know how you all do it! Love the friends and family pictures and your son is gorgeous and so cool :o)

  3. I arrived here from M of Chocolate, Cookies and Candies. M is one of my fave and awesome bloggers so i know any blogs she recommends would be awesome too. Love the funny and witty sense of humor you add to your blog posts. I am a mommy of one from the US who has a love/hate relationship with motherhood and blogging. I guess that is the way i describe myself..lol.

    Will come back for more :)

    1. Hi Nelah - thank you too for popping over. Marlene is awesome isn't she? She's just so on the ball with everything out there and she has a horrible habit of making me want to buy everything she recommends - whether I need it or not! I'm not sure what I'm blogging about sometimes but it's kind of therapeutic and sometimes when you've had a bad day, it's nice to look at the funny side of it all and laugh. Love/hate relationship with motherhood - tell me about it. They turn you into screaming banshee woman and in the next breath, tell you they love you. That's motherhood. I used to be sane. :o) before children.

  4. Hope to see a pic of you modelling the skirt, we've spent all day playing with playmobil castles and pirate ships so not one moment to consider the joy of fashion and clothing. So I'm hanging out in my carboot sale skirt and an old Dorothy Perkins tshirt. :-)

    1. And I'm sure you looked great! I didn't really do fashion today - it was jeans and wellies and scruffs. So definitely no pictures of me today to scare anyone. And if the weather is nice this week - the skirt may get an outing. If it's nice ;o)

  5. I am totally obsessed with denim skirts at the moment, I got a denim maxi skirt from ebay and it ended up being FREE! (long story). next on my list is a denim dungaree dress :) I love the skirt you got from H&M, very similar to the Marant! x

    1. You will look lovely in your denim maxi - probably with a little fitted tee? My skirt is lovely but it has a high waistband which makes it a bit more challenging to wear and I don't want to cover up the detail which I think is the best bit of the skirt! Just wishing for some skirt weather that's all
