If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that I’ve been feeling a bit glum about buying clothes lately; the charity shops have been pretty desolate (although I had some luck this week, more on that in a future post!), I can’t afford to buy organic, ethical clothes all the time (£30 for a t-shirt? I have two children to feed and clothe!) and eBay prices seem to have gone through the roof. Just when I was about to give up totally, I won a brilliant polka dot jersey midi skirt for £9, including p&p, and my faith was instantly restored.
I love the skirt for all it’s swirly, stretchy, comfortable gloriousness; it’s not too flouncy, but manages to look a bit full-skirtish at the same time. I popped it on with my New Look denim shirt (I spent literally months looking for a second hand one before giving up and buying a new one), vintage jacket and Topshop geek shoes, which haven’t been off my feet since I bought them. Comfy, and still good for chasing after errant kiddos – pretty perfect for a Saturday.
