I don't often wear a skirt but I've been trying my best to break from the norm and the nice weather seems to be helping in getting the old legs out. And a nice way to ease in to skirts is with a midi. Midi's can be challenging but I do think it's just a point of finding one that cuts you off at a flattering part of your leg i.e. not the widest part. My black geometric patterned one is from H&M. The pattern won me over and the HUGE pockets. You can fit a novel in these pockets - seriously. Not quite Vanity Fair but a slim paperback by all means.
I wore it on the school run yesterday and heard a "whit whoo Sue!" behind me and got a pat on the bum from one of the school mums who was suitably shocked to see that I was in possession of a pair of legs.
Anyway, I'm back in the jeans today - can't change the habits of the last few years just because we've had 2 days of sunshine.
Last Note :
- This skirt is actually 100% viscose but it's the most amazing viscose ever as it's not the thin creasy stuff you usually get but a real heavy weight fabric which barely creases. I spent all day in it and there was barely a wrinkle at the end. Mega (I know the vocab is atrocious isn't it?).
- The skirt is currently half price in the H&M sale here.
- Nice worn in a more casual way with a grey tee and a pair of white Cons too if your legs can hack it. I'm not sure mine can. #shortie
