Looks like a maxi

Appearances can be deceptive, and this maxi skirt is actually a pair of trousers. Found, of course, in a charity shop, these were brand new with labels still attached, and yet they only cost me £3! I'd not come across the brand Molly Jo before. These palazzo pants are quite unusual in that they have two layers; the inside layer is a conventional pair of trousers, and the top layer is loose giving this lovely floaty effect. 

You can probably see the satin edging along the inside of the over layer giving a neat finish. The only downside of these fabulous trousers is the length of them. I've had to buy these massively high sandals to go with them as I didn't want to (attempt) to alter them. The sandals are preloved (from Office), but not very worn, probably due to the fact that the heels are six inches high and the platforms are three inches. I had to forgo my usual Post Office run (walk) today and delegated the chore to Polly as I thought I might break my ankle along the way as I teeter on these skyscraper heels.

The rest of the outfit reads like this - ruffle top by Coast (preloved), floral jacket by River Island (hand-me-down from Sasha), rings are preloved and new sunglasses by Quay Australia.

Today we had just the right amount of wind to showcase these chiffon trousers off to their best.

See me stride out like this ...

... and like this!

Orange and fuchsia make another stunning combination. It seems that fuchsia is set to be featured again and again with me this year. I wonder what I'll conjure up next?

As you read this, I'll be on the mainland for another dental treatment. I'm trying not to think about it too much and just hope that I'll still have some gnashers left by the end of all of this. But I trust my dentist and can report that so far I've not experienced any pain whilst in the chair which is my biggest fear of all. I'm sure we're all the same. Wish me luck!

P.S. I'll be back with an extra post on Friday, so do please join me for that. Until then, have a lovely week!
