Maxi Skirt For Spring


  • Top ~ Matalan 
  • Shoes ~ Primark
  • Skirt ~ Primark

Wow is it warm today or is it me ? I am melting!!

I eventually got around to buying this beautiful maxi skirt from Primark. Ive had my eye on this skirt for over a month, I picked it up last week before they sell out.

Priced at £14-00 I’m loving all the different colours in it, I’m sure to get lots of wear from it.

I first wore it to London when I travelled down last week to pick my race number for the London marathon and it got me lots of complements from strangers!! which is nice but also a bit scary when I’m all alone in London without my family and husband.

This is my favourite Spring skirt at the moment, I’m loving it….

Today I started exercising again after the marathon, 3 miles walking, 2 miles running and a lovely mile swim, yeah I feel loads better and my legs are recovering great.

Moving onto my next challenge but only a faster half marathon next time.

 Can’t wait now for the ballot to open for next years London Marathon, I have a goal I still need to reach!!

Today I picked up this bronze glow from Home bargains that I have on my face, it seems quite good for 99p. Reminds me, my daughter wants to glitter hairspray so we can dress up, any ideas where I can get some from? I can find none anywhere….

What is your favourite item this Spring?

      Thanks Petro, I though a fussy blouse would make it a bit to much 🙂

    Very beautiful skirt Claire! The colours are wonderful! It is great that you can swim! Can you believe that I can't swim?! I am glad that you are recovering from the marathon. All the very best with your preparations for the next marathon. Enjoy the rest of your day.

    Love the colors… So cheerful! If you can't find the hairspray local, Amazon might have what you're looking for.

    Just popping over from Patti's Visible Monday – so nice to find you! Your skirt is lovely, and I love the simple yet chic way you've styled it. The rainbow motif reminds me of the 70s, a good thing in my books!
