Floral Print Midi Skirt and Cropped Cardigan

I’m a big fan of flared midi skirts, even more so when they have pockets like this one. I bought this skirt ages ago but it was a bit on the snug side, and consequently got pushed to the back of the wardrobe. The zip sticks at the waistband so it’s not easy to do up (well that’s my excuse anyway!) Once it’s on and done up it’s fine, I just can’t eat a big meal while wearing it!

Teaming this sheer top with the floral print midi skirt and cropped cardigan tones it down and prevents it looking too risqué.

Everything in this outfit is quite old. I’ve had the cardigan for years and it’s been through at least one house move with me, maybe two. Bizarrely I just never think to wear it, which is silly because it’s perfect with a flared skirt or dress. I bought the sheer flower T-shirt in a charity shop for next to nothing. However, I underestimated just how see-through it is and I don’t feel comfortable wearing it on its own. Teaming this sheer top with the floral print midi skirt and cropped cardigan tones it down and prevents it looking too risqué.

This leather bag is also years old and one I don’t use very often because it’s too small for work. When I bought it about twelve years ago there was a bigger version available and I’ve always regretted not buying that instead. I think the structured top handle style looks like one of the Queen’s bags! I added the cat eye sunglasses for a 1950’s vibe…I’m all about the vintage look at the moment!

How would you wear a sheer top to avoid revealing too much? I’d love to hear your styling tips…and it’s link up day so do share what you’ve been wearing!
