I wanted to challenge myself a bit with this look. It has to be said, it’s a fairly rare occurrence for me to wear a skirt, and even rarer to wear one as part of a casual outfit. It’s not that I don’t like skirts as such, I just don’t really pen myself as a particularly ‘girly girl’ having to be practically forced into skirts and dresses as a child rather than living in my beloved jodhpurs, it’s been a trait that’s continued into adulthood – until now.
Missi Clothing are a fab British manufacturer and wholesaler, who supply to many high street and independent stores and boutiques, and they very generously sent me this gorgeous dogtooth print top after seeing my love of all things monochrome – I couldn’t wait to style it. I’d originally intended to wear it with a different jacket, however after discovering it’s comfortable, slouchy fit I kinda wanted that to continue into my outerwear, teaming it with my boyfriend fit Boohoo denim jacket. I will admit, I own this skirt from Missguided in burgundy as well, and actually wasn’t going to buy the white one until I slipped it into my basket at the last minute on a whim – I’m so glad I did, it looked brilliant teamed with the bold print of the top.
