My iconic Red skirt

March 2, 2012










New Look t shirt, Dorothy Perkins skirt, Next shoes, Forever 21 jewelry, h & m purse

I can’t believe this skirt is 10 years old! Apart from the fact that it reminds me I’m going to be 26 in May (boooo!) I love that wearing this is like a trip down memory lane. My mom bought this skirt for me when I was 16 and I’ve kept this skirt because at that age, it made me feel fancy and I only ever wore it for special occasions like a first anniversary with my then boyfriend or ‘fancy’ parties. Those were magical, innocent times. I really did feel special every time I wore it.

Anyway, I don’t know what possessed me to try it on after all these years but I’m glad I did. Just goes to show you that it’s good to shop in your own closet sometimes 🙂

I also love this New Look t shirt by the way, I picked it up in red too. It’s super comfortable and you can tie it up lower or higher which means it’s fab for skirts, jeans or  anything high waisted. They’re on the baggy side so you might want to down size a bit if you’re buying one.

I hope you’re having a great day, if you’re not- push through. Tomorrow is a new day with new opportunities to kick some ass!

Lots of Love,
