My black Elizabeth & James pencil skirt has proven itself to be a closet staple (I wear it more than you see it here of course). It is made out of several layers of a stretchy mesh that let me move freely – in comparison with a longer cotton black skirt I own that is practically impossible to walk in! I should probably get the waist taken in a little bit so it fits better, but I’m in no hurry to make it bodycon – the relaxed fit literally suits me better. There’s one for sale on Ebay HERE.

I loved this outfit, but the top I made shrunk right after I wore it out this night. It is now borderline croptop, which means I can’t wear it with this skirt again. But I’ll always have this particular outfit in my memory!
And this was the first time I had worn this skirt on the blog – I remember feeling so self conscious after posting these photos. I hid my weight very well, but I felt anguished and fearful of being made fun of for wearing a tight skirt and having a belly. I weighed so much more than I do now that I had to wear the skirt very high up to even fit. I definitely had a moment where I thought this way too small for me and I should get rid of it. I’m glad I didn’t!
