I’ve had this skirt for a few years now and I remember that before I bought it, I had loved it for ages and ages and then I finally got it and it was every bit beautiful that I imagined and hoped it would be. The only thing was, the fit was slightly off and I wished I had bought it in a size smaller. I find that when I wear tops or knits over this skirt as opposed to tucked in, then this works and looks heaps better. I don’t have many statement knits but I think this one makes up for that. I always enjoy bringing this beaut out during the winter months, the colouring and the print is bold and eye catching whilst having a classic feel.

I must tell you this small story that got me thinking about the times we live in now. It was the other day and I was sat down having a little chat with my nephew, when he suddenly turned and looked at me, asking who my favourite you tubers are? I was stumped for an answer because if i’m honest I don’t really watch many, as he put it, You tubers. Which I know sounds kinda old fashioned but currently, I just don’t. To me though, this seemed like a prominent moment for myself. When I was his age I would have asked the question “who’s your favourite pop band” and whilst i’m sure this still happens, I guess it just struck me on how things really have changed. Obviously You Tube has been a sensation for years now and maybe kids have been asking these questions longer then I have been aware of but to me it felt like a moment that really reflects the modern times we live in and how my nephews upbringing will be different and un-relatable to me in many ways. It’s amazing and I look forward to him having the different experiences, I just hope that we can continue to grow this world we live in, to be a more positive and loving place, so that the next generation can enjoy the beauty that it has to offer.

Take care lovelies,
