It’s taken me a few weeks to get my sh*t together and get back to blogging as it turns out being Miss Trunchbull is a full-time job. Oh and the baby… And while life has changed beyond all recognition and I cannot physically see clients, I need for my own sanity to get back to doing my job in one of the small ways that I can! A teacher I am not and those of you who are, I salute you.
Lockdown arrfor me, like so many, has consisted predominantly of gym gear and trackie bums, well that was until the sun came out and I actually wanted to reach for something other than comforting hoodies. I have found that being stuck at home has totally and utterly sapped me of my desire to dress up (and by up we’re not really talking up up – even jeans now constitutes dressing up!) and this actually doesn’t make me feel great about myself. Call me superficial, call me vain, but in the same way as putting a swipe of mascara and a splash of lippy can be good for the soul (or even washing your hair. Yes I am a bit of a Stig of the Dump), so can wearing something that makes you feel good about yourself.
So, if you like me, want to feel a little bit more like yourself, or you want a little pick me up, or you’re fed up of leggings and a sweatshirt, then have a look at my top ten skirts for the spring and summer ahead. Because there will be sunny days ahead…even if it’s just in your back garden for now.
This comes in both spots and this sunny yellow floral. Perfect with a classic white tee or vest top. Add a denim jacket and trainers or flat sandals and you’re good to go.
This is a super versatile skirt as you aren’t limited by the colours in a print. Wear with a plain white tee, coloured t-shirts/vests/cami tops or pair with stripes/checks/prints. You name it, this skirt will probably work with it. It also comes in khaki which isn’t quite as versatile.
A gorgeous print which will put a spring in your step.
Another pretty, large scale floral design.
I’m not normally a ruffle fan, but the print disguises this one nicely and I love the ditsy floral print.
Animal is going nowhere fast. This is also a good one you can wear through the seasons as it will work just as well with a black sweater as a cami.
An easy print to wear if you don’t want an in your face animal/floral or spot. Hopefully not with boots for a long time though.
Love the colour of this pleated number which will work with black as well as white, thanks to the black waistband.
Love the freshness of the red and white floral on this number and while I wouldn’t be baring my midriff, I like the combo with the gingham
Crinkle is back this spring and the floral print on this skirt is great because there are so many colours you can pick out. Plus you can easily wear this into winter with sweaters of various colours.
