For once, I intend this to be a post which doesn’t have essay level prose in it…mainly because it has one sole clear purpose – the blogging of how I wore my new favourite skirt three different ways. And, restraining myself on the word count shouldnt be hard as I intend to schedule post something longer when this is done…thus fullfilling my need to pontificate.

This outfit was what I wore to an Open Mic Music night a few weeks or so back…its when the skirt got its very first outing…I’d owned it for a while but didn’t dare wear it, for some strange reason. But I figured that it would be uber comfortable yet dressier than jeans (as I don’t own a pair that look smart atm (which is why many seem to be calling to me)). And how right I was…
It seemed to be one of those days where hair/makeup/clothes all behaved and I felt entirely comfortable! And I caught up with some friends I hadn’t seen for ages, so was a good night!
So, here’s me looking a little rough as I’ve no makeup on….this is how I look on most of my days off actually…I alternatively working until late, so I tend to spend the day after feeling like I can’t be bothered to do much other than get up! Not to mention, this was the day after the Open Mic Night, so it was a self-inflicted late-ish night and several wines induced tiredness!
But as the skirt was so comfy, I chucked it on and threw a neutral palette on top of it….I think even though I clearly need to acquaint my face with makeup, I don’t look half bad!

I did go out wearing more slap than this, usually I take pictures before I go out, but this was once I got back and I couldn’t be bothered to top my makeup up!
I wore this a few days later when we went out for lunch for my Mum’s birthday, which again meant lots of sitting down, eating cake and drinking tea – the skirt passed all the sitting down/needing room for stomach to expand tests!
However, I did have an incident…I wore tights with it on both the night out and the lunch, but the second time I wore I different pair and they kept falling down! So when I went into town to get my mum’s birthday present in the late afternoon (her birthday was the following day but she was too busy to have lunch then…I didnt get paid until that day, hence the mad dash into town!), at the bus stop I had to discretely remove them (there was no-one else around) because they were completely doing my head in!
But yes, I adore this skirt, and have seen a similar looking one that Naomi of Diamonds and Pearls has got from Yours, so might have to investigate adding a second to my wardrobe!
