Daily Wear: Summer Turquoise

3 Jul 2010

Daily Wear

Cardigan: Gap
Camisole: Marks & Spencer
Skirt: American Apparel (hand dyed and shortened)
Sandals: Peacocks
Bag: Charity Shop
Necklace: Charity Shop

This is what I wore yesterday. When I had my crazy fabric dying session on Thursday I rediscovered some white tops and this one almost went into the dye bath, but I'm so glad I left it white as it feels so fresh and summery as it is. (White always makes me feel sun-tanned, even though I am not!) The skirt is from a few years ago when I'd just discovered how comfortable jersey skirts were! I remember how excited I was about wearing it, but haven't actually worn it much since, due the unusually cool summers that followed. I've been told by people that my outfits would benefit from belts, and I'm sure a belt would look nice with this, but comfort is my top priority and I just can't bear a stiff belt around my waist - it's too hot in this weather!

Here I am demonstrating the twirl-ability of this skirt. Honey couldn't decide if she wanted to stay or leave.

I love the twirl-ability of this skirt and your summery sandals. I meant to comment on the dye session post yesterday, the garments looked amazing afterwards. I tried to die a pair of corduroy pants once and it was such a mess that I haven't attempted it since.

I love your sandals? Would you mind sharing where you go them? I'm in the US so odds are I couldn't find them over here but I'm constantly looking for cute vegan shoes that don't cost an arm and a leg (and won't cut up my feet). Thanks!

whoops! That should have said:

"I love your sandals!"

definitely no question there :)

Oooh, that skirt definitely has a good twirl. I love that!

That jersey skirt looks perfect! I may have to buy myself one and hem it too. And I love the sandals.
