The joy of wearing a skirt again. I can’t believe I am wearing a skirt after all these months of wearing either joggers or leggings. I was determined to add something new to my wardrobe that felt more feminine. This grey pleated skirt in the HopeFashionuk sale reduced from £95.00 to £47.50 was irresistible.
I am not normally a fan of pleated skirts as I have never found them very flattering on my pear shaped figure. However I was agreeably surprised when I tried this on one, it seemed to fall smoothly from the elasticated waistband without causing bulk around the hips.
I could not resist a twirl in the photo above.
I should imagine that it will pack well when we at last get to travel again.
Here I have teamed it with a simple V neck grey cardigan over my off white frill collar and cuff blouse. I think that it would look equally good with a simple roll neck sweater. I have added a narrow belt for some waist definition.
To smarten things up a bit I have added my favourite grey jacket (about three years old) and part of a suit plus my heeled black suede boots (many years old).
The joy of wearing a skirt again even if it was just for these photos which were taken in our communal gardens by Mr P. It is a classic style so should be a long standing addition to my wardrobe. I plan to wear it with a simple white tee shirt and sandals in the Summer.
