This is me attempting the midi skirt trend...

Top - Topshop (old)
Midi Skirt - My mum's from forever ago (soz)
Dr Marten's - eBay
Choker - eBay
Hat - H&M

When midi skirts first started making their appearance, I have to say, I did not think I would be playing my part in the trend.  But yet, here I am, sporting this pastel blue number.  I don't usually wear long pieces.  In fact, I never wear long pieces.  I'm more of a short skirt and short shorts kinda gal.  Yes, I'm one of them.

I also saw midi skirts as being just that little bit too girly for my liking.  So I gave it an edge by tucking in an old Hendrix tee that I found abandoned under a pile of tops in the bottom of one of my drawers.  Glad I rediscovered that one!  I added my cute orb choker that as made an appearance in many of my past outfit posts, and used this chunky black belt as a waist sincher.  I think it brings the top and the skirt together nicely, if I do say so myself.

I did have a bit of a pickle when trying to decide what shoes to wear.  I firstly went straight to my black chunky sandals, but I thought that they looked way too girly with the skirt.  The bottom half of me looked like a girly girl, and the top half of me looked like a wannabe rock chick...  Not good.  Instead, I threw on my beloved black Dr Marten's, that have been harshly neglected now it's getting hotter.

    1. Thank you! It's a Rimmel lipstick! The colour name has rubbed off though and I can't for the life of me remember it! Sorry! X

  29. I love how edgy this is, you've taken something usually quite niche and made it your own. It really suits you.
