The Perfect Skirt

As I am writing this I am on my comfy sofa where I have been for the past 4 hrs suffering in silence after a great night out. Whoever thought it was a good idea to finish the night with a few rounds of  Jack Daniels and coke has a lot to answer for today.

So as I said on my previous post I had the whole day on Friday to myself to go shopping and I had a brilliant day browsing all of the shops without anyone saying “ you have already been in this one” .  I had a couple of coffee stops and basically shopped till I dropped. I had like on most occasions made a mental list, statement flats, oversize white shirt and make-up replacements.

I managed to find a gorgeous crisp oversize white shirt in Zara which I was very pleased with and then I saw it, across a crowded department store my eyes fell upon the perfect skirt, it was love at first site and I new it had to be mine.

The skirt is a leather A-line midi skirt which can be worn day/night, dressed up/down with heels/flats. It is perfect.

It is from Whistles and I could have picked up nearly everything in there. They have got some classic basics that would stand the test of fashion time, gorgeous fabrics and quality made.

I know the skirt is pricey but I will definitely wear it a lot and with the elusive statement flats I am still on the hunt for.

I wore this wonderful skirt last night with a blue shirt form Topshop, Sophie Hulme belt and sparkly Louboutins.

What do you think of the skirt?

I think it would look great with sweatshirts aswell.

Hope you like the look, let me know what you think.

I am going to eat chocolate now, my body is craving sugar and I am going to oblige

Take care

  1. Skirt looks amazing. As do you. Lovely outfit.

  2. Love that skirt, the gentle a-line looks fab on and the leather looks so soft, what a fab buy x

  3. That’s an absolutely classy and stunning skirt! Love the A-line and the length. A timeless piece that you can dress up as well as style casually. Looking forward to seeing it in different versions.

    As I live on the countryside, I do most of my shopping online. But when I go shopping, I do it either alone or with my daughter – we have a very similar taste and love these shopping days together, preferably in London.

    Hope you are feeling better soon 😉

    • Thank you Annette, I am looking forward to dressing it down aswell. It must be lovely having shopping days with your daughter. I have three boys but I have ground my 13yr old down and he too likes clothes shopping (yes), but when I want a full day browsing I go it alone! ( his limit is about three hours). Startig to feel human again, nothing a chinese takeaway and lots of chocolate couldn’t sort out. x
