Last summer I found this incredible floral print pleated maxi skirt at a consignment shop, it was about two sizes to big and maxis aren’t my favourite, so I decided to take in and have my seamstress transform it. It’s one of my favourite things to do with vintage finds, especially when it’s a print that reminds me of my grandmothers rather daring 60s wallpaper.
Once it was transformed I pretty much lived in it for the last few weeks of summer so I thought I’d bust it out last weekend and go for a stroll. I paired it with a simple white cable knit sweater from Joe Fresh, my go-to Marcela Miista yellow wedges which are oh-so comfy, my neon orange Cambridge Satchel, and my favourite crystal necklace from local designer Wild Moon.
Such a comfortable transitional look that you can take from day to night quickly with a leather jacket or blazer and a quieter bag.
