When I went home to visit mum at Easter, this navy flared skirt was the only “pretty” item of clothing that I packed, while the rest were suitable for long walks with the dog. One evening we decided to head to Bergen to go to the cinema, as we both really wanted to see The second best Marigold Hotel, which meant that the skirt got to come out and play. The film was heartwarming and fun, just like its predesessor, while my legs were elegant, but crazy cold. I felt really ladylike and pretty, though, like I always do in a 1950s full skirt.
I have been lusting after Tibi’s gorgeous skirts for ages and was really happy to find this navy version at COS for a fraction of the price (it also comes in green). If you are handy around a sewing machine, you can follow A pair & a spare‘s easy pattern and make your own. Geneva writes the best sewing instructions for novices like me and I’m tempted to make one in a pretty floral patterns to wear in the summer.
On a different note, aren’t these shoes just gorgeous? They are one of the few pairs of shoes that I have successfully bought online — narrow size 41,5 feet are not the easiest to please. They fit me like a glove and the colourful floral print matches just about any outfit imaginable! I love it when certain prints and colours can act as an unexpected neutral, like leopard, snake and metallic colours. They let you get a lot more wear out of your wardrobe while still being funky and fun!
