OOTD

Cardigan - New Look Cami - Evans Skirt - ASOS Tights - Ebay Shoes - New Look Belt - Evans Necklace - Birthday Present

Thought I would post pictures of my lovely new skirt, the one I posted about the other day in my "Cute Coral" post. It arrived the other day, and I got the chance to wear it today. It was a lovely day today- nice and warm for a change. The skirt is super cute & looks great worn high on the waist. However the elasticated waistband isn't that pretty, so I covered it with a belt, which I think looks quite cute? The colour is actually more orangey than appears here, it's a true coral, in between pink and orange. The fit is perfect, I wore it around my waist which is a size 26, so this is true to it's sizing, but due to the elastic I can also wear it around my hips quite comfortably, and they are a size 30, according to Evans sizing charts.

I got a chance to take photos outside today - well actually they are just a few quick snaps a family member took. I wish I could take more photos outside, but I feel kinda silly setting up a tripod in public, as we don't have our own garden (the one in the first pic is my grandparent's).

As you can see the second picture doesn't have the nicest setting (this is right outside our front door), but my skirt looked pretty blowing in the wind, and you can also see how see through this skirt is. I tried layering it with a white top to start with, but it showed through a lot. I think I may need to wear a half slip underneath if I want to pair it with anything but black. This probably means that if you wanted to wear it without the legwear, you might be revealing more than you would like!

All in all, a good buy for £20, I really do love this skirt!

  9. Pretty! I think the belt works really well with it.

    Also, I must be a little hipster kid at heart, because I think the background in the second photo looks cool~

  10. You've made me want that skirt! Love the belt... I hate when they use elasticized waists and either get them wrong or ugly - you have covered it perfectly.
