The indispensable denim skirt

A denim skirt goes with so many looks, in this case a brightly coloured patterned top

I've worn denim skirts for ever, and they were really big news worn with denim waistcoats, when I had my first one, aged about 15. 

Inevitably there's some criteria attached to my ideal denim skirt. Stretchy denim, but not too tight: I really can't bear it when it's hard to walk in a denim skirt. Knee length. So this one is spot on. I'm wearing it with a brightly coloured top and gold collar, plus my denim wedges, which are a couple of years old.

I've also got a darker denim skirt, below, which I've teamed here with an old Next t-shirt, a silver belt  and a new sequin beach bag from Pure Collection.

  2. I love a pencil denim skirt too - and this one is fab - as is that pretty blouse! Thanks for linking, xox


  3. Having a look at that darling Boden skirt. Like the bit of flair and the large patch pockets. I have two denim skirts I love but fear they've grown tight. Working on that issue now.

    Have admired your recent Insta posts and outfits, Gail!

  4. Such a fab item of clothing, just as good as jeans, but perfect form warmer weather. Love the necklace Gail. Jacqui
