Mumsy skirt


Mumsy not just stylewise...

It's actually my mums' skirt!

From the stuff I scored when I went digging in my family house attic a few months ago.

Isn't the print totally 80's?

This time I downplayed the retro vibe and kept it safe with a plain white ribbed tank top.

Btw, I'm loving this new, under-the-knee length.

Although the actual length is mid-calf, which is a bit longer than I'd like it to be, so I just rolled the top a bit to make it shorter and held it all in place with my favourite belt.

Finally, this is one of those rare times you'll see me sporting colour on my toenails. But who can say no to a free pedicure?

You look so beautiful! Your mom's skirt is awesome, I love the print and the color mix! What a great thing to be able to wear your mom's clothes, my mom's clothes don't fit unfortunately and she didn't keep her old clothes that I loved but I still shop for things that remind me of the ones she wore. =)

aaah, mums and grandmas treasures!makes you want to buy nice clothes, just to have something to leave to your children -even the ones you do not plan to have! The knee length looks great on you, but mid calf will be soo hot next season...

I love the print on this skirt and the colours!

If and when you get bored, you can always transform into a bubble style skirt. OR wear as a belted tunic top and jeans.

The whole outfit is great, but you know I'm partial to those grey wedges....loves me a girl with pretty toes ;-)

Smart move on rolling up the skirt to shorten the length...very creative.
