The long tail skirt




So spring is finally here, even though the weather is on and off  with a cold chill now and again. Well today was warm enough for me to wear this outfit. When I saw this mocha long tail skirt from the online store Nasty Gal, I had to have it. Loving this trend- a short skirt in the front and a maxi at the back.
I never like to over accessorize my outfits, so these bangles from Foschini, are enough jewelry for today. The boho floppy hat and the waist belt are from a random boutique.

I have been anxiously waiting for spring/summer just so I can wear bright colours. This multi coloured sripped vest is from Mr Price and the half moon yellow bag is from the online store Nasty Gal.




I dont mind buying cheap or affordable clothes as I feel like seasons come and go and so do the trends, except for investment items like coats and blazers which can last you half your lifetime, thats where I look for quality the most. I believe my biggest investment should be my shoes. Like these Steve Madden brown wedges, they really have seen better days but they still going strong.


Thanx dolls for READING and for the LOVE through your amazing COMMENTS.♥♥♥
