My Style of the Moment {The Mini}

This week I thought I would share with you my little obsession with a mini skirt. Since arriving into my 30’s some 4 years ago and often not having sun-kissed legs to be proud of I tend to steer away from getting my bare legs out. Much to my husbands dismay.

This is what I love about winter. I can get my legs out albeit hidden by tights! All cosy and warm. Wearing layers is something I love about winter. Wearing a mini skirt is what I love about winter. Mr H is therefore a big fan of Winter.

I couldn’t help but feel as snug as a bug in a rug in this brushed plaid skirt. A gorgeous print. Who doesn’t love monochrome and tartan? A great combination. I picked this skirt up a couple of weeks ago from Primark after seeing it pop up on their Instagram feed. I’m glad I did as it seems to have sold out now. On this occasion I paired it with my 2nd obsession, my Brogues. I also added a black sweater and a pop of colour on my nails. You can’t beat a red varnish in winter. I also added a favourite, my Vivienne Westwood necklace.

I have been looking for a little black skirt for some time now however most I have seen have been rather flimsy and therefore I would be risking my own Marilyn Monroe moment! So when I came across this skater style mini skirt in Primark which was heavy-duty with a gorgeous finish I couldn’t help but relieve it from the rails.

I paired it with my faithful brogues, mainly because my legs looked slimmer than with my Chelsea Boots. I also popped up this gorgeous cashmere jumper from Topshop (2 years ago) and a French Connection Shirt with a beautiful lace finish around the neckline. I do love a collar. Lets not forget the red nails!

Until this year I have never shopped in Primark. You see, since commuting to Manchester the department store is so close to my office that I just cannot help myself. Often I do not find anything that catches my eye however more recently I have been somewhat surprised.

I’m a little bit in love with this look at the minute. I wonder how many skirts I could add to my collection? I think I’d quite like to find out!

What little obsession do you have at the minute?

  1. I’m with you, I love a mini in winter (thank god for tights to hide my pasty legs). I could do with getting a couple more to see me through the next few months xx

    • Thanks my love. I won’t lie I was shocked to find something I like as I generally struggle. I am really pleased to have snapped these two bargains up as normally I would pay a lot more and for no better quality. These two feel like exceptions however as the shop is on my office doorstep I think I need to keep my eye out!


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
