Daily Wear: Twirly denim and sunny tights

17 Mar 2010



T-shirt: Gap
Skirt: Thrifted, Oasis
Tights: Uniqlo
Shoes: Crocs
Necklace: Accessorize

Yesterday felt like the right time to debut these yellow tights. It's been warm and sunny these past few days and the colour didn't seem too shocking now that Spring is really in the air.

I bought this skirt at the weekend from Oxfam for only £3.99 - it must have cost over £30 in Oasis, and it seems new, so I was chuffed with my bargain! But the waist band needed a bit of tweaking as it was originally much deeper and sat on my ribs - ouch! I felt quite constricted, so I simply cut off two inches of the waistband so it now falls lower on my waist. I left a bit of extra length on the zip and folded down the sides of the zip and stitched in place. You see, I need to be able to run around and do star jumps in my clothes, and now it's oh so comfortable. I'm not sure if I'll be able to wear the skirt without tights or leggings in the Summer as it's often windy and I don't want any embarrassing moments!

Adorable! So neat that you were able to make the waist comfortable -- I love the look of high-waisted skirts, but I find most of them to be too uncomfortable!

And I'm so glad that Spring is nearly here. :)
