I found this skirt in a charity shop when a sweet friend and I were thrifting the other day to cheer ourselves up.
Boy did it work! She was a little big but I knew that my poor excuse for sewing skills could take her in enough to be just perfect. Plus I figured if anyone is THAT close to me that they can see my wonky seams we have bigger issues to work out.
Like an abstract painting she’s bold in such a cool way and weirdly doesn’t feel too loud and scary to wear which, I know, doesn’t make sense because that skirt is practically screaming with colours and print.
I paired the skirt with my fiances plain cotton t – shirt, thrifted bag, earrings and shoes and even though I was adding in further colours into the mix, keeping the shapes simple and the colours neutral meant they don’t compete with the loud tones of the skirt.
Ok. Black dream sandals. £2.99. Good grief.
Again, because these little sandals are dainty and strappy they pick out the black in the skirt without looking too heavy.
In future I will definitely wear trainers or boots with this skirt, but again it’s about proportion. A cool pair of high top trainers and a button up shirt, cowboy boots and a long sweatshirt, a massive slouchy jumper and cute ballet flats. Each combination balances out the skirt and the level of femininity or masculinity.
Et Voila! There you have outfit number 1 of my magic thrifted finds. I hope you like it!
