shirt: Wrangler (2nd hand) / skirt+belt: 2nd hand / socks: Happy Socks / sneaks: Nike
Summer's slowly beginning to wane and I'm already starting to get panicky at the thought of all the great clothes I'll soon be throwing in a box for hibernation. Although inevitable, I guess I'm still not completely at peace with the impending prospect of having to crawl back into my big, black winter coat. All the same, I graciously allowed this skirt to jump the long queue of clothes I hope to squeeze one last wear out of before the onslaught of autumn and donned it a staggering two days in a row. But only because its iridescent colours are magnificent. This time around I took the skirt to a street party in a neighbouring part of town, pairing it messily with my extreme-collared, denim Wrangler shirt and my electric blue trainers to assemble a confusing vision of Midwest meets mumsy come funky lady. I then tied a snakeskin belt round it for good luck. Finally, print fiend that I am, I also couldn't resist adding just a little bit of print play. These leo Happy Socks are some of the most cherished members of my sock family. You'd see why.
