I can’t help myself when it comes to trends. As much as I know I need to keep it simple, keep it classic, when something super fun like a faux leather fringed skirt comes along, I simply have to have it – even if it’s just for the one season. Plus, when it’s the middle of a Melbourne winter and you’re constantly scrolling through an endless stream of sunny Northern Hemisphere pictures on Instagram, you have to have something fun to wear. Thank God for purse-friendly high street stores! So here I am in my made-for-twirling skirt, a sale bargain from Topshop and a serious lack of tan.
