I am not a great wearer of skirts. My preferred choice is trousers in varying shapes and styles. However, it can be useful to have at least one skirt in your wardrobe to ring the changes. If like me you are not a great fan of skirts it is best to keep things simple to start with and not veer too far from
The skirt I am wearing above is by Hopefashionuk. Now in the sale reduced from £95 to £47.50. It has an elasticated waist, very comfortable and is bias cut so is extremely flattering especially on my pear-shaped figure.
I have teamed my shirt with my ivory tie-neck blouse again by Hope and reduced from £95 to £47.50. I have worn this top so much this summer you can see it here with my white jeans. This style was all the rage in St.Tropez and I saw several variations in the market. Underneath I am wearing my longline cami top. I like the way the lace shows below the top. It adds an unusual and feminine touch. I also have this cami in black. In the next post you will see me wearing it under my pink blazer with just a touch of the lace showing at the top. Very French!
My sandals are a few years old by Gabor similar. I found the same style in bronze.

Talking of sales MeandEm always have an excellent selection of good quality basics in their sale. I try to stock up on tee shirts and tops which I find are excellent quality.
Ha! I just bought a skirt this weekend. Except it’s a long skirt to wear under tunics or short dresses. It’s very light a blousy. So I thought it would be good for hot days. I too always wear pants but I remember last summer in LA. HOT!
I used to be a big wearer of skirts particularly when I was still working. Now I have only one black Ponte pencil left to wear with opaque tights in winter. Don’t recall wearing it last season though. However, since your outfit looks so fresh, I’m very tempted to revisit the look our next summer in NZ. Really love your sandals.
Like you , I’m really a trousers person but have recently bought two longish skirts both navy . One a heavy cotton A line from Toast & the other a floaty pleat by MaxMara ( sale bargain ) . I’m really enjoying the feel of wearing a floaty skirt , especially on a summery day . It’s good to have some little wardrobe tweaks now & again .
I only wear skirts if I have bike shorts underneath!!
The thing that really makes me happy right now is a pair of pants I found last year in Key West that I thought was a big flowy skirt, but when I got in the dressing room – they were PANTS. I want more of them. I bought them at a national chain but they don’t have a branch where I live 🙁
Sounds great I love wide floaty pants.
