Contrary as you no doubt now know I am, I want to be wearing quite a lot of black this summer. And black trousers are the devil's raiment because they are just so tedious. So a black skirt it will have to be.
But I hate shopping when I have a very specific thing in mind because you can never find it, can you?
And a longish, but not trip-abably long plain black skirt seems to be particularly evasive. Mullet skirts, slits up to heaven, sheer panels, voluminous? All well and good. But something nice and easy in a good weight jersey? Not so easy to find.
These skirts might all do the trick. I just have to see if I can pin one down and make it work.
