This linen skirt has been lurking in my wardrobe for a couple of years and never worn. I decided to create an outfit round it today so I could get the labels of it and give it a shot. Typically it is now a bit big for me so it hangs a bit lower than it should. The material is also quite stiff and as it is fully lined it sticks out rather. I wonder if it will hang differently after the first wash.
So I created this look and although the skirt is pretty bright I liked it. I was only in work five minutes, however when someone asked me if I was going sailing. Now I agree the look has a bit of a nautical theme and whilst I am happy with a bit of constructive criticism I thought this was a bit rude! I have definitely worn the navy stripes on the top half before and I am not sure a red linen skirt screams seafaring so I am a touch perplexed and I must confess felt a little self consious for the rest of the day.
