Give it a Twirl

I love this skirt and how the hem moves as I walk or when there's a little breeze. Longer skirts always make me feel more ladylike, and of course I cannot resist twirling in them.

I don't know about you, but when it's hot, one outfit is simply not enough for one day. This skirt is the perfect basis for some "midday remixing", I just put on a different top, belt and lipstick, and I was ready to go out again.

It's the mysterious "Beauty of the..." top, as the end of the sentence hides under the waistline of the skirt. I hope that's not a fashion faux pas, I got it for the mermaid design anyway some years ago. It would be a cool tattoo, wouldn't it?
You must be on tenterhooks over what it says, so I shall reveal the secret - "Beauty of the depths".

You're very welcome, Joni! :)
I've never thought about what clothes go with my name, thanks for that idea!

Thank you Madeline! That is super sweet of you :)
This is such a lovely skirt! I really like Promod. They have cute stuff!

I love to twirl around in dresses and skirts. In fact, it was one of my talents as a young child. It was also how I decided if a dress was fashionable, at the age of 6.
Just adore your polka dot skirt with the green and the red belt. And the length looks fabulous on you too. And the graphic tee is the perfect touch.

P.S. Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my site. Such wonderful kind words-it really made my day.

Cool skirt, and you are definitely on my blogroll! I really liked shopping at Promod this Spring when I was in Germany. I also loved Orsay, those two were my favorite stores.

Well, your blog deserves it Vanessa! :)

I love Promod too, though many people write them off as too arty-flowery-hippy. Which is exactly what I like, so no problem there. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

This is the thing I love most about blogging - inspiring and giving strenght to each other. What a brilliant thing! It always makes me happy to read your comments too! :)

I wish the twirliness of skirts would still be the foremost thing that makes them fashionable! We need more twirly skirts! :D

Madeline Quaint said...

Gosh, than you Mona, that's so sweet of you! :)

We have Orsay too here in Hungary, though the quality of Promod garments far surpasses theirs. Though Orsay is loads cheaper. :)

Thank you! :)

What a lovely skirt; I actually have something similar, but the polka dots are smaller. :) Love the mermaid top, too.

The Waves said...

Oops, forgot to say that I love the new header!

When it is hot around here (so, twice every year) I know what you mean about needing new clothes. Luckily, that skirt is a killer base for some remixing. Also, I know exactly what you mean about longer skirts and ladylike feelings. And twirling is just a given.

Madeline Quaint said...

Oh, thank you, I'm so glad you like it! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Ta! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

It is a great skirt, I've never had the luck to find one with this cut before. I was so happy to spot it in the sales! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Polka dots rule!

The Cat Hag said...

Awww you are so cute, I wish I could pick you up and put you in my pocket! :)

That skirt is absolutely darling on you, and together with your gorgeous hair, red lippie and belt, completes such an awesome summer outfit. ♥

the skirt is darling - i love how you can just twirl around in it, super sweet dear! x

Jamillah said...

OMG!!! I need to do a twirly skirt gif! Twirly skirts make me feel like a lady too.

I love both pairings you did, but my fave is the mermaid, I don't think it's a faux pas to have half the sentence cut away, lol. The juxtaposition of both tops with the lady skirt is adorable!

Love that idea for a tattoo also! GET IT!

Lise F said...

Love your look! ♥
XoXo

Madeline Quaint said...

Haha, thanks! I always wished for pocketsize people to exist when I was small. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

A gif would be great! I was too lame to make similar enough photos for it with my tripod and remoteless camera. :)

I've been pondering a tattoo for a while, but I'd get a much smaller one if I eventually do get one...

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)
