The bookworm and the giraffe

Those skirts I made from the six-euro Bershka dresses seem to be a regular staple nowadays. Combined with any printed tee and a nice belt sitting on the natural waist, that kind of outfits have become my everyday uniform. After showing you the black one and the charcoal one, this one here is my brown skirt. And yes, my t-shirt has a giraffe printed on it. And it's not a kid's t-shirt - as some of you may logically presume knowing me - it's actually from Bershka too, but really old. Can I say "vintage Bershka"? Guess not... I really loved that shirt, but unfortunately over the years, it grew too short for me to wear with regular skirts or trousers. But, as I recently discovered, with those high-waisted skirts, that's not a problem anymore! I predict a big old-tee comeback!

Giraffe t-shirt bought 7 years ago, BERSHKA. Bubble skirt made by me from a BERSHKA dress. Brown wedge pumps, seen here, ZARA. Tan-coloured leather belt, used to be my mum's.

Oh man, the high-waisted skirt with a graphic tee is so cute! Kind of retro, but totally modern at the same time, I love it!
