For some reason, I hauled out this old Carole Little skirt this morning. I just had the urge to wear something longer. It is one of those "sets" which comes with a top, but the top looks quite 90's.
The skirt has a bit of khaki in it and my original plan was to wear it with a blazer - I thought it looked okay, but Big J thought blazer and hippy skirt looked strange together.
It's the St Tropez line and has all the mix of prints elements which are characteristic of Carole Little's earlier stuff.
The skirt is quite full and I found myself swishing it with my left hand as I walked about the office. I'm not sure why, but I love going upstairs when wearing a long skirt - something about having to hold the skirt as you ascend reminds me of period movies.
I also decided to put my hair up again - you can just see the flower ornament which by chance matched the skirt.
Finally these cute booties are by Enzo Angiolini. I love the height, not overly high, but I don't wear them much. I also like the dippy cut at the side - it almost looks like you can fold the tops down.
So anyway back to checking the weather - the whole day I felt rather like a Russian peasant: long skirt, thick tights, I also had a sweater.
