(Outfit: Skirt H&M current season, Shoes Dune, Jumper Whistles, Bag Boden, all previous seasons)
I know, I look like a very silver Christmas tree. Although compared to an outfit that I wore the other evening – first to parents’ evening (the Head must have thought I was slightly crazy donning double sequins) and then out with friends, this is positively tame. In fact I came out of parents’ evening slightly hot and flustered due to trying to cover up said sequins with a fur gilet and a coat. Bad move.
Anyway, I digress, here I’m wearing the H&M silver pleated skirt (£29.99) which is uber comfortable for a number of reasons. First it has an elasticated waist, secondly it’s a great length, thirdly it has plenty of room for taking a big stride. What more can you ask from a skirt that looks like it’s made of bacofoil?
And as for re-styling it? Biker boots and a turtle neck maybe, or high open sandals and a chunky jumper, or a lacy top. no socks and ankle boots, or just to add to the glitz, sparkly socks with anything and everything? Now we’re talking! (So who’s going to comment on the fact that I clearly didn’t take my socks off early enough, hence the sock mark on my ankle? That’s why I love instagram. These things don’t show up!)
