That Long Skirt

Maxi skirt

This was taken while congratulating our neighbours who got married earlier that day up the road.

Maxi skirt and coach vintage bag
Coach classics

Skirt: Alice & Olivia (try this one by River Island).  Tank top: Topshop (similar by Velvet).  Belt: Vintage.  Necklace: Vintage.  Bag: Vintage Coach (I like this one). Panama Hat: Mens hat shop in New Orleans (similar by JCrew). Sandals: Steve Madden.  Nails: Topshop (I’m testing out oranges).

Best floor sweeping skirt ever!  I wear it in winter with jumpers and jackets and in summer with cropped tops and tanks.

It’s actually too long for me so I have to wear it with a belt to keep it up.

    You look so lovely and glowy Karen!
    This outfit all fits together so perfectly, love everything about it! I’m off to Oxford Street later this week to hunt for some maxi skirts for my holiday but being only 5ft 2″ there’s not many options available in petite sizes. Hopefully I’ll find some great ones!
