The A-Line Skirt | OOTD

Primark Crop // New Look Skirt // Missguided Boots // Michael Kors Watch // Maybelline 'In With Coral' // Barry M 'Eat My Dust' 

With my 1940's-esque 'small waist, not so small hips' figure I'd resigned myself to never owning an a-line skirt. I must have tried every single a-line offering in Topshop to never find a size that fitted both parts of my body #girlproblems. Then whilst randomly browsing the New Look sale a few weeks ago I managed to find an a-line skirt that actually fits really nicely, doesn't flash my bum (take note toppers) and was only about £10! The checked gingham print is really cute too and transforms the skirt into a nice little statement number. I'm wearing it here with all black everything aka trusty Primark crop, tights and my favourite Missguided boots. I feel like adding patent chelseas makes the look a little '60's mod', but the skirt also looks pretty paired with a pastel jumper on chilly spring days. Speaking of which, I have a whole week of chilly spring days off to look forward to this week as me and the boy are going on staycation to Portsmouth and Brighton (BIGGEST WOOP). Recommendations for places to eat, visit, shop and snap are very welcome as we're keen to tick off all Brighton blogger hotspots!

Do you love an A-Line?

  2. I moved to portsmouth in September and Ive found some real gems! For coffee and cake head to The Tenth Hole cafe, for a quick drink there's a lovely sea-front pub on spicer island and for an evening meal my favourites are Loch Fyne, I italian or 69 Palmerston Road (a quick goolge search will fine them all!) for shopping, Gunwharf Quays is a must visit (especially the CCO) and Southsea has some cute boutiques :)

    Ive reviewed quite a few places around Portsmouth on my blog (www.lilliesandlipbalm.blogspot.com) - just click the Lifestyle tab :) hope it helps! Have a brilliant time, its lovely here! xx

  3. Wow what a bargain!! I have big hips and a small waist, but I'm still not sure I'd wear one, having said that, you look gorgeous in it. I also love your hair.
