I keep meaning to post more OOTD's on here but with a 2 year old who, at the moment, has a real obsession with dirtying himself (with jam, milk, juice etc etc) putting on lovely clothes is sometimes the last thing on my mind.
After a shower today though I felt brand new enough to wear the Mustard Peacocks skirt I picked up recently. This time last year I ooh'd and ahh'd over this skirt. Of course I never got around to getting it so when it popped up on Ebay recently with a starting bid of 99p and no bids (ending in 10 mins) I couldn't pass it up.
Skirt, Peacocks (via Ebay)
The skirt is dip hemmed. What I like about it? It came out before dip hems went mental. I don't know about you guys but I have no interest in a skirt that's far too short at the front and far too long at the back and that seems to be the majority of what clothes stores are persisting in stocking. A good classic dip hem is so reminiscent of vintage styling (think riding skirts) and I like them that way. It's also worth remembering that the sharper the gradient of the dip hem then the more wind can lift your skirt... I can't say, at 28 years of age, I'm willing to step outside in anything that might cause me to moon those in the nearby vicinity.
I teamed the skirt with my mustard pussy bow top from Boohoo and the great horses jumper from Ebay (still trying to find a longer, cosier knit though that doesn't cost the earth) and my matalan maroon shoes.
That was Thursday's OOTD. I enjoyed wearing this outfit and I think it'll definitely be a good go-to. The more I think about it though, I would be more so inclined to call this style of skirt a Riding Skirt as opposed to Dip Hem.
What do you think?
