The high/low mix: Sweatshirts and skirts

27d85ac2b4eb4799bfbfcd5a2a53d9e4I woke up this morning with a burning desire to pull on a sweatshirt and slip on a skirt. Maybe it was the beautiful sunshine that was spilling in through my window and the sense that spring is finally, finally (!) in the air. I don’t know, but I just felt it. The problem was however, that my wardrobe is sadly lacking in that department. The only sweatshirts I have date back about 1,000 years to a time when I used to run (a little, to music, to the park and then always to a cafe), a lot more.

But, it does mean that the shops will be filled to the brim with aforementioned sweatshirts (MSGM are amazing) and ones that are a lot nicer than my old running ones. Rather fortuitously, the shops are also home to a number of gorgeous full-skirts (including this so-beautiful-I’m-in-love one by Stella Jean), which is exactly what, in my fantasy head, I would have liked to have been wearing this morning…

As the first and last sweatshirt/skirt combos are verging on the dark side – and on a sunny day! What am I thinking! I would lighten them up with a pair of knock-your-socks-off heels (I’m talking to you Sophia Webster) and a hot pink bag.
