High street haul: H&M slouchy tee + Primark maroon maxi skirt

Maroon Primark maxi skirt, grey H&M t-shirt and vintage scarf

Autumn has a lot to answer. I’ve found myself taking comfort from the high street in the last couple of weeks, more than I have in the last could of months, and this outfit is an example of that. The grey t-shirt is from my recent trip to H&M and last week I also paid a visit to Primark.

All but two pairs of my shoes need to be reheeled or resoled (shoes with holes + rain do not mix), but I havn’t had a chance to go to the cobblers in St Nicks Market yet (incidentally, if anyone can recommend any other decent cobblers in the Bristol area then let me know!) These victorian tan lace up boots were an ideal interim replacement, but the skirt was something of an impulse purchase.

Me and maxi skirts don’t really get on. I’m too short and never wear heels, so maxi-anything just swamps me and poses nothing but a health risk, but this sheer maroon design caught my eye and I knew I had to try it on. I think it works due to the sheer overlay over the opaque mini skirt, and at £15 I figured it was worth a shot.

And I’m happy to report that, apart from nearly tripping up the steps on the bus (I forgot to pretend I was a medival princess and hold the skirt daintily above my ankles) the skirt is almost hazard-free! I’ve teamed it with a turquoise necklace I bought in Thailand, a scarf from Grandma Ship-Shape and the Holly Fulton tote I picked up at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Fashion Month back in September.

PS. Did anyone wake up early to catch up on the US election? Very excited to see Obama back in the White House : )
