I’m having a little obsession over clothes for my bottom half right now. I’m a massive fan of dresses, but I really dislike buying tops and bottoms. My work wardrobe is a whole other thing but if I’m off duty I’m rarely out of my jeans. That’s fine if I’m dressing them up or down with sparkly tops or a knit, but when I want to wear something else, something a little cooler perhaps, or more comfortable, I’m stumped.
That is until recently when I began a love affair with skirts. I have a very fancy skirt I treated myself to in the My-Wardrobe sale from Mulberry (I know *credit card shudder* – It was a treat.) It’s the D-Ring paperbag waist skirt and looks fab with something sleek on the top half to balance the proportions. I prefer to wear a white vest with it or fitted white tee. However, as I said, that is rather fancy, so whilst I don’t believe in saving things for best (when is that anyway?) I try not to wear it for any old occasion!
And now I’ve stumbled across this sunshine yellow skirt by EmersonMade. More on Emerson another time, but hello skirt!
So, right now $188 dollars (about £115) is a little too much for me to spend, so I thought I would have a look around for some alternatives on the high street.
- Notre Dame Skirt, £79, Boden
- Dark Yellow pleated chiffon maxi skirt £40, River Island
- Midi skirt with belt, £45, ASOS
The ASOS one is quite a good replica! Or can you point me towards a better one?
So can I tempt you?
