Most of you know that I'd be hard-pressed to find a food-themed outfit that doesn't make me swoon. But when I saw this skirt from Dangerfield – complete with its delectable croissants, jars of cherry jam and polka dotted bows – I'm pretty sure I let out an audible yelp and waited all of 2 seconds to purchase it. I was absolutely powerless to resist the urge of these buttery breakfast treats and accompanying marmalade... which is a sentiment that also applies for when I'm faced with these foodstuffs in real life! And of course, as I am nothing if not thematic, I had to wear my Erstwilder preserves brooch to complete this yummy ensemble.
This skirt is a perfect staple for spring and summer; the fabric is a lightweight cotton, and the black and white checked pattern is so picnic-esque. I sized up to a UK 14 in this skirt after looking at the provided size chart, and though it fits fine, I probably would have been okay with my normal UK 12 as well. Since Dangerfield is based in Australia, I was afraid of receiving a too-small skirt, and I always remind myself that it's easier to have something taken in, if need be. As it is, it totally works (though I swapped out the belt it came with for something a bit sturdier) and, as I like to say, it leaves me with "eating room!"
