My favourite skirt

I am so so so besotted with this skirt - I actually thought the other day about how devastated I would be when it finally falls apart. I have had it for 2 years now and wear it so much.

*

It was such a great bargain from H&M, £7 in the sale! I always do that £ per wear thing and this must be down to pence per wear considering how much I wear it! It is great for work because it is a nice length and has pockets but it's also nice for casual wear because it's so comfy. In the summer it's nice and airy.

Okay, I just realised that these outfits don't really represent how I wear it. I like to wear it with red tights & black shoes for the contrast but apparently when I do do this I never manage to catch an outfit photo. Oh well. 

Do you have an item in your wardrobe that you will be devastated to part with? What's your most worn item of clothing? 

PS. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post! I was worried the majority would find it boring but if it helps at least one person in their career decision then I will be very happy.

  2. Now am totally going to repeat what I said on twitter... I have this skirt! I do love it - and you're making me realise I haven't worn it in ages! I love polka dots and red, they just work so well. I normally wear it with a black top, red cardi and red shoes. Maybe I will wear it tomorrow. Hmmm.

  3. I have this skirt too, I love it. Can't bring myself to get rid of it though even though I've put weight on and it no longer fits me :( xo

  4. I always think that red goes best with balck and white polka dots. I always bust out the red lippie when I wear my polka dot dress. However I think I like the outfit with the green cardigan the best. The colour is gorgeous!

  7. it looks lovely with the blue cardi. I have a purple cardi that I wear with everything and it's getting a little bobbly now and it's not going to last much longer :(

  10. I love that skirt it's so cute and you can wear it a heap of ways (style wise) not suggesting as a top or something haha
    It's so bad I don't even know what I wear a lot any more, I have got rid of some much and trying to wear everything I have so I don't know.

  15. I think even I'll be devastated if this skirt ever falls apart, I love it so much! We will protect & preserve it, haha.

    I'd be most devastated if my green checked shirt fell to bits. I've had it since 2008 & even though it was £28, I've probably got the cost per wear down to pence already as I literally wear it about once a fortnight. I love it so much, it suits me so well & it goes with everything - & I guess it's come to be known as a signature piece for me as whenever I wear it, friends always tell me how much they love it.

  16. It truly is a fabulous skirt. I love polka dots as well!

  17. This skirt is so incredibly cute! And I like how you always seem to pair it with bright primary colors.

  19. I love that skirt! I just bought a polka dot skirt from H&M too, only €10 and the last one left, I <as so happy :)

    I really like your style, when I don't know what to wear I take a look at your outfit photos for inspiration :)

  20. i tend to wear the cheapest items loads, and my most expensive splurges hardly ever - so my cost per wear is pretty skewed!

    follow & holler if you love vintage:

  24. I love it! I'm looking for more skirts like that one, actually. I really like how you've worn it as well.

  25. That skirt is so cute- it really suits you :) I'm not much of a skirt person myself because I hate my legs (even in stockings) but I do wear jeans a lot. I have one pair that have lasted me absolutely ages and I can't imagine parting with them. It's funny how clothes become an extension of your personality!

  26. That is a lovely skirt! Plus pockets = brilliant. My favourite item of clothing is a green and black vintage dress. Even though it's polyester I love the shape, but it's been through the wash a lot and I've hemmed it a couple of times. Everytime I wear it I cross my fingers that it doesn't fall apart.

  27. I love the skirt. I like how you've paired it with bright colours on top, I usually end up wearing all black and white outfits and it's a bit boring I guess.

  28. I love how you style the skirt, I am generally really clueless with them but you have it down to a fine art!

  29. It really is such a pretty skirt! And I love all the ways you've worn it!

  30. I have a short black Zara dress which has frill detailing at the sleeves and down the front, and I absolutely LOVE it. I mainly wear it with purple tights and a fuscia leopard print cardi, and I will be absolutely devastated when it falls apart. (Weirdly, it's a size XS, when I'm a 10/12. Today I tried on a medium dress in there and it was too tight! That kind of makes me like it more.)

  31. That is such a gorgeous skirt! It looks like the perfect 'goes with everything' option that you don't even have to think about.

    My favourite item at the moment is the perfect breton top which I got from Gap about a month ago. It just goes so well with all my skirts I'd be really upset if I had to part with it.

  32. What a lovely skirt you have, and the combinations even lovelier. :-) I especially like the colour mixes with yellow!

  33. That is such a lovely skirt, I love the polka dots :) My floral Tesco dress is sadly falling apart but it is so pretty and easy that I am determined to just keep patching it until I can't fix it, I love it so much and it was £7/£8! :)

  34. Oh my gosh, I have so many things that I'll cry over when they eventually fall apart. My favorite green lace dress got a hole in it a few weeks ago after being worn a billion times, and I was so sad. :( I'll fall into a deep depression when my favorite boots start to go, too.

  35. What a fun skirt! i love the colorful cardigans you wear it with.

    i will be sad to part with my burnt orange '70s men sweater. i wear it with just about anything.
