Style on a Sunday: To The Ballet

Today my outfit was a homage to ballet fashion, I teamed a cream cardigan with a pleated skirt and ballet pumps, topped it off (excuse the pun) with this coral t shirt from Primark.

Apologies for my slightly odd expression in this photo, it looks like I was angry with Ryan at the time, which I definitely wasn't, and apologies for the awful editing, I was trying to make the colours a bit better and now I just look a bit grainy:

Top: Primark, Cardigan: Primark, Skirt: ASOS, Shoes: Primark, Bag: Brussels Train Station

I was a bit scared of teaming the midi skirt with flats but I don't think it looks too bad, I think that it would look better with heels but I didn't feel comfortable enough to wear them . I'd really like to find a sandal with a small heel, you know the ones that look a bit vintage? I am on the hunt for a pair! I liked the whole ballet look though (I actually went to watch Swan Lake, but more on that tomorrow) and the first outing of the midi skirt was a success. I also just want to mention this bag - how awesome is it? My mum got it for me when we visited Brussels, we saw it at the train station and I fell in love - I think it toughens up any outfit a little bit and I'm not too great at being too girly so I think it really sets this outfit off.

What do you think of a midi skirt and flats? Would you try it or do you think they should always be worn with heels? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I love the whole ballet style, the skirt is gorgeous, I'm a bit scared of trying a midi because my legs are quite short but you look gorgeous!

Aw thank you! :) I was scared too, but I guess I'm lucky because my legs are long anyway, so even though they look a bit short I'm still tall!x

I really like it. I have one sort of midi length skirt (haven't actually worn it yet this year!) and I always end up wearing that with flats. Heels never look quite right for some odd reason.

You look gorgeous, Laura! The skirt is perfect and looks great with the flats. Very Swan Lake-esque! x
