Wearing a fun t-shirt with a midi skirt is one of my favourite outfit combinations just lately. A quirky top worn with a ladylike full skirt makes for an interesting contrast. I first saw a top similar to this Coco Chanel t-shirt worn by the gorgeous Vale on her blog Fashion and Cookies (she is one of my favourite bloggers, and well you know the saying…imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!) so when I saw this one on the Awesome World website for €18 I had to have it (there are loads of other cute and quirky tops to choose from too). Whenever you buy from somewhere for the first time it’s always a bit of gamble, particularly when buying online as you can’t see the quality of the fabric, but I was really pleased with both the fit and the material which is quite stretchy.
I usually avoid tops with a high neckline as they tend to make me look too wide on my top half but to counter this I put a beaded bib necklace over it. I played around with different skirts, but in the end I settled on a plain black midi from Asos, which has a sheer panel all the way round (you can see how I styled it for a night out in Paris here). To pick up the red in the top and the necklace I finished the outfit off with my red Mila Blu bag.
