A very simple and girly outfit today, but then again, all my outfits are simple and somewhat girly! I feel like I need to toughen up my style or something - but today isn't going to be that day for an image change! I wasn't sure what to wear with this skater skirt; a basic top or a white blouse? I decided to go for the top! When I wore this one (which is actually a cropped top), Niki thought that I was wearing it back to front. I'm not, by the way, but I see what he means! I like that it's low cut on the back!
My skirt here is from skirt here is from Rare, and when I opened the parcel, I held it up to my waist and initially had a brief "does my bum look big in this" moment. Rare sizes come up big, and this skirt in particular doesn't come in individual sizes (8,10,12,14, etc), only S/M or M/L so I was worried this wouldn't look right on me. You see, it's a skater style skirt made in quite a thick polyester material which makes it more structured, (and sticky-outy) than most skaters. It's actually a really nice shape. I tried it on and realised I judged too soon. It's a nice print, makes an outfit more interesting, and for the price of £26, the skirt is beautifully made. The quality of manufacturing is what I look for even in high street brands (apart from Primark) before handing over my money! A lot of older women that I talk to always complain at how bad quality clothes are these days.
With the outfit being quite girly, I wanted to wear a bag that was quite chunky and I thought a satchel would be best as opposed to the teeny tiny leather bags I've been wearing lately. I didn't want the whole look to be "delicate" so the brown satchel off-sets that, I think.
The skirt will look awesome worn in the Summertime without tights. I desperately need a tan before whipping my bare legs out but it looks like I'll be wearing my tights for a long time yet, what a terrible start to Spring we're having! If it's not windy, then it's foggy! Terrible weather for outfit photos (fashion blogger problems!) There are lots of lovely skirts on Rare at the moment, so don't forget to check them out!
