The warm colours, the vibrant pattern ... this skirt could not have been more perfect for a day in the Spanish sun. Plus, I have a bit of an obsession with pleated midi skirts. It is the kind of item I could wear with just about anything and still love but to make it centre stage, it really needs to be paired with block colours. I chose black - you cannot go wrong with black right? Even in warmer weather, black in Spain feels oh so classy. I actually stole the skirt from my sister for the day, which I am sure I am going to have to repay by giving her one of my pieces at some point, but it was worth it. She bought it at a charity shop in London of all places and the brand is unknown so unfortunately there is no chance of me copying her and buying one for myself. I have yet to find a skirt which even comes close to it. But I will keep looking ... probably indefinitely.
