Lilac floral skirt

Over 45s blogger Gail Hanlon in lilac and yellow floral skirt, bought secondhand from eBay, lilac top and pink sandals

I've mentioned before that I have a skirt search set up on eBay that gives me notifications when new offerings from Boden and others are on offer. I like to shop this way because not only does it save money, it's re-using clothes rather than endlessly buying "fast fashion."

This lovely lilac and yellow floral skirt, originally from Laura Ashley, was an eBay buy for £5.99. I'm wearing it with a pair of old pink sandals, new pink earrings (Mango) and lilac top (Marks and Spencer). As lilac's in fashion this summer, I'm trying to buy nice pieces to wear for many years to come, because normally lilac is only around for prom and bridesmaid dresses.

I find skirts are The Best for summer: easy to wear, colourful, cheery. This skirt is lined which makes it a little less appealing for the hot weather. Here's a post showing another floral skirt, and ways to style it.

  2. I'm just a newbee in the thrift works, but that sounds like a plan. I love these colours on you!

  3. I've been wearing summer skirts recently, of course given the weather. Great find. Bargain at the price and investment piece. Great shoes too x


  4. Lovely skirt, and a great ebay bargain! I love lilac, it's a fab colour for spring/summer. I just bought some lilac trousers in the Mango sale. Thanks for linking up!
