Maxi to mini – done!


top – c/o SugarLips
skirt – ebay (last worn here as a maxi)
shoe – Zara (last worn here)
necklaces, bangle – gifted, vintage, handmade by a friend
watch – c/o Guess
tribute bracelet – Stella and Dot (gifted)
navy nail polish – George @ Asda
(jacket, snood – Zara, Marks & Spencer)

denim lead – Ancol
coat – model’s own (never gets old does it?!)

Some time ago I wore this skirt knotted up from a maxi in to a midi.  Since then I’ve knotted it at various lengths and also to the side.  And naturally when this top arrived from SugarLips I figured the skirt would be the perfect partner for it.  I knotted it this way and that and tried it unadulterated as a maxi but I just wasn’t feeling it.  Then I folded it right up into a mini.  And it just worked.  The end.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
