#OOTD | Poppy Print

New Look Tall Skirt | H&M V Neck Top | New Look Necklace | M&S Tights | ASOS T-Bar Shoes

I love this skirt.

If you'd told me a few months ago i'd be wearing a floral, silky circle skirt, i don't think i would have believed you. I was living in jeans and leggings all throughout Winter, but the Spring has really gotten me excited about fashion again which is refreshing. I really enjoyed styling this outfit, as the skirt is really 1950's housewife but pairing it with a simple v-neck t-shirt relaxes the whole look, and pairing it with a pair of t-bar 'school' style shoes gives it a little more personality.

This skirt is such a beautiful piece, and is easily added to your wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down, worn in the day or for the evening too. The floral print is different to anything else i own, and i love the mix of black, red, white and blue. I also love mixing textures, so pairing this silk skirt with this cotton t-shirt takes away some of the 'dressed up' style of the skirt and makes it more daytime appropriate. It's such a beautifully full skirt, and almost a full round skirt. It's the style that when you twirl, it flares out around you - don't you love that kind?

When i ordered the skirt online, i didn't think about what i'd wear without and when it arrived i suddenly realised i didn't own a red top. So, at the weekend when we were out shopping i picked up this t-shirt from H&M and i love it. It's such a beautiful quality, and it fits perfectly. Plus, it pairs perfectly with the red in the skirt and brightens it up, however it'd also look lovely paired with white too and maybe black for the evening.
