Finding the right skirt for summer can be tricky but when I spied this one across the shop floor, it was love at first sight. Thick, white, cotton with a good length, pockets and a paper bag waist, I knew that this was the one for me.
Admittedly not all tops work with this skirt – they need to be the right length but that can be achieved either by tucking in, or tucking under, or just by getting one that sits on the waistband.
I don’t think that I would look out of place at a jubilee party here – bring on the red, white and blue!
And here is the Cos tie waist skirt (£59)…
The other good thing about this skirt is that I can take big, proper, strides in it without it appearing too voluminous. I’m not good with skirts that restrict my movement. I take too big a stride, they pull me back, I fall over, the the skirt and I fall out and off to the charity shop it goes.
In this outfit I wore a cropped French Connection tencel shirt, M&S platform sandals and a pink Mulberry bag. Providing that I don’t wreck it by chucking things down it – although it seems pretty hardy so it could probably take chemicals and a good scrub – it should serve me well over the next few months with breton t-shirts, vest tops, brighter bits and bobs or black for a monochrome look. I think that the thing now is just to wear it – lots.
I’m away for the next couple of days working with M&S so if I’m silent for a while, that’s why – but I look forward to being back soon. In the meantime, have a lovely week all of you. x
