Twirling in the street


It seems quite apt that I should be twirling in the streets for today’s post because I am due a little gratuitous celebration.  You see, I totally kicked ass out of my crazy day yesterday (maybe you were following on Twitter?).  Also… it’s Friday my friends.  Win win.

This is actually a favourite look of mine for the Asos blogger challenge; something about the movement in this pleated maxi skirt just means it’s a true joy to wear.  And in case you were wondering, yes, I really did wear this – to work actually (with only a minor adjustment in the footwear dept.).  You can see all 5 looks here.

Hope you all have a great weekend – I plan to sleep for about 87% of it but I’ll see you on the other side!

    That skirt is amazing. I love how you paired it with that super cute sweater.

    I’d love for you to stop by my blog and enter my $375 handbag giveaway.

      thanks anna – I was surprised that actually the slouchy knit still worked with the dressy maxi – love a bit of contrast though

    HAPPY FRIDAY!!! That sweater is too die for!!! And I don’t think I am following you on twitter honey which I am going to fix right now!


    • Thankfifi Posted 12 Nov at 9:00 am

      ha – if you did follow you no doubt read the barrage of tweets on Friday! Seems being alone in London, Twitter kept me feeling connected and I took FULL advantage

  10. Gaylesbury Posted 9 Nov at 10:15 pm

    That is a damn fine colour of skirt! You know my views on that end of the colour spectrum! Really suits you xxx

    • Thankfifi Posted 12 Nov at 9:00 am

      thanks so much gaylesbury

  11. Mica Posted 10 Nov at 12:03 am

    This is my favourite way you’ve worn that jumper too! I really like the pleated maxi skirt, it’s beautiful and these are stunning photos with the sunlight!


    • Thankfifi Posted 12 Nov at 9:01 am

      thanks so much mica – so funny how different people preferred different looks – I guess the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things all the time!

  12. Jacy Posted 10 Nov at 5:04 am

    Your skirt is SO beautiful! I love the unique styling with a sweater too 🙂



    • Thankfifi Posted 12 Nov at 9:01 am

    This is one super divine skirt Wendy….surely a statement amidst your fall pieces!!!


    • Thankfifi Posted 13 Nov at 5:42 pm

      I think one of the great things about maxi skirts is their versatility – you can dress them up or down or somewhere in the middle like this. I’m sure it will be making further appearances!

  21. sara Posted 13 Nov at 10:48 pm

    Love the contrast between the cute sweater and the sexy red skirt.


    • Thankfifi Posted 14 Nov at 8:56 am

      I think the sweater dresses it down a bit which I like 🙂

    You are a dream within a dream! (somewhere in the middle Karhu barks) <3
