Windswept in a 70s maxi
Hooray - my vintage 70s maxi skirt finally gets to be worn! It was bought in lovely warm weather in September when I couldn't imagine the cool temperatures needed to wear it... but oh boy I needed it when this picture was taken, it was absolutely freezing and I'm amazed I got any pictures at all due to the biting wind. So no hands on show for this shoot (in that cold this girl was showing off jewellery for no man).
I absolutely adore the chevron stripes (warm colours) contrasted with the polkadots (black and white). You'll be seeing a lot more of the scarf - this is its third winter and I love it. Because it's cotton and ma-hoosive (long and wide) it can be worn in so many different ways. And the skirt is just like a long woollen blanket made into a skirt; in fact that's probably what it actually is...!
