what i wore today: caribbean mermaid

top: vintage, skirt: American Apparel, bag: H&M, shoes: Sunjellies

Along with the circle skirts, the accordion-pleat skirt from American Apparel is one of my wardrobe staples. I have it in green, black and orange, and I'm saving up for the blue and cranberry colours. They are shiny and catch the light beautifully, making them a unique twist on the maxi skirt. Plus, they have a great high waist, elasticated waistband, and are a cool ankle-length instead of floor-length. It's been SO HOT here: I don't really know how to dress for summer, and we have no air-con at work (35 degrees inside!), so I've been pretty much living in these skirts!

The bag was an absolute gem of a find at H&M. I stumbled across it and couldn't leave without it. It doesn't feel like it will last long, but it's one of the best novelty buys I've made!

P.S - I changed my hair again, and now have a Bettie Page-esque short fringe! Take a look on my Instagram page!
