The Carrie Bradshaw Skirt

Ever since I saw Carrie Bradshaw in her green layered tulle skirt when she went to Paris, I had to find my own wearable version. Thankfully, H&M answered my prayers last year with this dusky pink version. As soon as I saw it I knew I'd found my Carrie skirt and this one even echos the opening credits outfit too. Bonus.

Because of its colour this very much has a ballet feel to it and if I'm honest, I do feel a little bit Swan Lake when I wear it. Not in a bad way, I hasten to add. What I love about this skirt, is that it can be dressed in so many different ways. With heels and a strapless top this skirt instantly creates an extravagant dress but equally, worn with a t-shirt and flats and it's brought into casual territory.

This look definitely has a 50s style vibe to it and had I worn it with a halter neck top I wouldn't be far from fitting in as an extra in Grease. I like to take vintage looks but mixing in modern twists is what creates new looks. I bought the t-shirt from a grungy, alternative stall at a music festival and I doubt they would envisage such a look with one of their designs but I like the surprise of it.
