Swan print top: H+M
After seeing it on various bloggers lately (Amber mostly, wearing it far better than I ever would as usual!) I've had this ASOS midi skirt in my saved items. So, when I saw this skirt in a charity shop last weekend with it's similar print but for a tenth of it's price tag, I snapped it up.

Admittedly, this is pleated rather than quilted and it's sort of sitting on the borderline between cute and grannyish, but teaming it with this swan cropped top and my Irregular Choice Spatz ankle boots, I rather liked it. I just have to remember to keep it pulled up to meet the top, as nobody wants to see that much flabby flesh on show! 

Nonetheless, I think for £4 it was definitely worth it. I'd not been to have a look in any of the charity shops for a while, but managed to pick up quite a few bargains at the weekend. Have you had any good finds lately?

  2. You look stunning Char, I love this outfit on you and that midi skirt is an amazing find, I think I prefer it even to the ASOS one! Also... just saying, you look really slim and toned, it's of course about feeling comfortable but you could fully get away with showing off your midriff if you ever chose to! xx

    1. I think it's similar enough that I may not bother with the ASOS one now.

    1. Thank you, I did feel a bit daft wearing ankle boots on one of the hottest days of the year, but never mind!
