What I Wore // Club Tropicana


Sorry if you've now got Wham! stuck in your head! 

I've been on the lookout for skirts recently, as I have lots dresses, which I love, but other than that I have a habit of wearing my tatty old denim skirt, day in and day out. The trouble is, I have a tough time finding skirts that are long enough. I usually have to get them in a larger size and wear them around my hips in order for them to cover my butt and be long enough. But I want skirts that I can actually wear around my waist! Who are shops making clothes for - the seven dwarves? That's probably not very PC, but I don't care - clothes shops make me angry!

Anyway, I struck skirt gold the other day and I've been wearing it pretty much non-stop ever since. I love the tropical print and soft jersey fabric, which is thick enough to hold its shape, but light enough for summer days. Ideally, I wish it were a *bit* longer, but it's the best I've found for ages. Also - check me getting my legs out! I even went to the shop with them on display. The last time I went bare legged I must've been about ten years old. Do I get a bravery award?










I had one of those incredibly rare days where almost every photo turned out nice (whuuuut - I should've bought a lottery ticket that day!) so I used them all. Sorry, not sorry.

Oh, but it wouldn't be an outfit post without an outtake. I don't even know what I was doing here.




Hope you're having a super duper day!

    1. Thanks, lady. It is so annoying when a skirt is supercute, but nowhere near long enough. It's not like I want them super long, just long enough so my tush isn't exposed if I bend over! xo

  3. And the award for the bravest leg barer goes to!!!.... *drumroll* ;)

    I always like my skirts a little longer than the standard mini skirt, I always want them a little closer to the knee. I start buying skirts (secondhand mainly) that were too long and then hemming them to the length I want. You could always try that :)

    1. Yes, I have considered this, but never seem to find any that I like! If I see any in charity shops I will definitely snap them up though. Ahh, thanks for my award! I'm honoured! ;)

  4. I love so many things about this outfit from the skirt to the cherry print cardigan to the necklace. I also agree I like to be more modest with my length of skirts and dresses so I usually strive for just above knee to maxi length which can be reallllly difficult to shop for these days. Again maybe I should stop shopping at forever21 a store Ive shopped at since I was like 14 and learn my lesson, they never carry anything that actually covers your vagina to put it bluntly. http://theredlipchronicles.blogspot.com

    1. Hahaha! I know what you mean. I too wonder if I should be shopping in 'older' stores, but I'm such a sucker for a novelty print that I always get sucked back to my favourite younger shops. But yes, I'd like some clothes made for people of ALL sizes and which cover my lady parts adequately!
