SUGAR, DARLING?

BY NANCY WHITTINGTON-COATES

They say you can’t turn a bad girl good




Ok ok, I know it's another midi skirt but I love em to bits so sorry but you're probably going to see even more over the next few, well, years probably. Midi is just the perfect length for my taste, they make me feel elegant and feminine and I find them so much easier to wear than an above the knee style because they easily hide anti chub rub shorts.

This one I think is particularly lovely as it's made from a thick satiny fabric in this utterly gorgeous shade of teal. The pleating is perfect and the fabric is of a weight that can hold the folds easily. Unfortunately this skirt only goes up to a size 22 which is what I have on here and I must warn that there is no stretch to the waist band. It has a side zip closure too and also comes in silver.

I decided to keep the top minimal and let the skirt take full focus here so I just popped on a nice plain bardot style top which makes me feel very Wanda Woodward. To keep the chill off I grabbed my new stripey jacket that I got in Simply Be the other day which I think works so well with the bold colour of the skirt. If you're a long time reader you'll know that I adore a black and white stripe piece so won't be surprised that the minute I saw this jacket I knew I had to have it! I just wish it was a bit shorter in more of a cropped style so it shows my waistline more, but that's just personal preference!

As for shoes I decided to pop on these lovely sparkly sandles that I bought for just £5 in the New Look sale last week. They're so so pretty... but so painful! It's just because I'm used to having a platform so wearing a heel this high comes as a bit of a shock, but I do adore them so I'll class them as 'theatre shoes' and only wear them when I know I'll be sitting down for most of the night!

So what do you think, is this a look you'd wear too? Are you a midi lover like me or are you a mini or a maxi girl?
