Cobalt Print Midi: 2 Ways

AW13 is shaping up to be the season of the midi, so when Daxon offered to send me an item of my choice from their current collection, this skirt caught my attention immediately, especially since it served the additional purpose of filling the sad cobalt deficit in my wardrobe. Everyone who has reviewed it on the Daxon website so far is around 3 times my age, but, what with its funky animal/camo print mash-up thrown into the bargain, it couldn't really be much more on-trend if it tried! Anyway, I've never been averse to stealing septuagenarian style - Nana Muses and I own more than one piece of identical clothing!

Although I'm usually a size 8 around the waist, and sizes for this piece start at 10/12, I decided to risk it and pray that the elastic would keep it from falling down around my ankles! It sits just below my natural waistline with no stress on the elastic at all, but would certainly stretch to fit size 10/12 comfortably too (the elastic is flat, so no need to worry about unsightly "corrugation"!). It's incredibly comfortable, finished to a very high level, and swishes rather pleasingly too. And it's just been reduced to a measly £12!

Mummy Muses decided that a few more cobalt co-ordinates were in order if its full potential was to be realised, so a £20 Primark trolley dash furnished me with two blue tops and a pair of shoes to play with (the skirt does have a matching blouse, but sadly I couldn't be supplied with the full outfit)... good excuse, anyway. I decided to style it up two ways, contrasting a classic '50s vintage-inspired look with a more edgy contemporary take. Now I'm envisioning it with a fluffy (cobalt?) knit, long boots and a fedora for deepest winter... ooh, and a crop top and wedges for SS14!
