Top – Primark, Shirt as skirt & socks – Uniqlo, Bag – Yesstyle, Shoes – Courtesy of Zalando, Cardigan – Mum’s Massimo Dutti

You must be thinking woman can you get yourself a proper skirt, why yes I can, I believe I am capable, thank you for asking! I’m also capable of vacuuming the flat, brushing my teeth and doing the laundry… doesn’t mean I’ll feel like it. This shirt-as-skirt is the sartorial equivalent of shoving everything under the bed – hides the junk and the trunk – GOOD ENOUGH FOR NOW. And aren’t you somewhat impressed that I wear the same stuff more than once on this blog? That particular shirt might occasionally commute from north to south, but I can boast that it’s been with me since 2007. I have a few cardigans that were gifts from my mother… well if you count ‘finding out your daughter took it without asking and you don’t really feel like chasing her all the way to London’ a form a gift. Yesss we’re completely ignoring the two brand-new items, the shoes and the bag (courtesy of Zalando and YesStyle), I AM SO FRUGAL I’M GONNA DIE!

  18. ha ha! you’re awesome :)

  19. I love your print top MORE than your checked shirt-skirt-shirt.

    Welcome back to crap London.

  20. I love your shirt/skirt. Inventiveness is the best part of fashion

  21. Mara

    HAHAHAHA reading you always makes me smile, you look great!

    Love the socks with those boots.

  22. It’s so refreshing to see you re-invent closet staples, who shouldn’t be able to showcase favorite items more than once? And marbled socks playing peek-a-boo in those boots? Totally smitten.

  24. I freaking love you.

    enough said.

  25. I love the whole outfit in general, but I most of all love the boot and socks combination. So pretty!

  26. Loving the shirt as a skirt. Will definitely have to try that!

  27. Love how you do the shirt as skirt! Could you do a tutorial on how you achieve that? Pretty please!

  28. Love the outfit!! And the boots!!

    kisses

  29. Love your boots!

  30. I prefer blogs that rewear the same items many different ways. Fashion is about being creative – and blogging is about being creative on a budget. (Of course I love a new bag or a new pair of shoes as much as the next girl – but the simple truth? I can;t afford it) We need to be creative with what we already own!

    (by the way, I love the shirt-as-skirt thing – I think I will try it out myself with my dad’s shirt that he has had since the 1970’s…)

  31. Chic and stylish outfit as always Shini~ I love your long hair!

  32. love the shirt as skirt. i’d try it myself if it weren’t about a hundred degrees out – bookmarked for fall, though. the shoes are serious, though, just perfect with the socks.

  33. That bag is gorgeous!!!
    http://www.soyfrivolita.blogspot.com

  34. love your hair so much
    love natural wave like that
    and love shirt styling as a skirt

  35. I think it helps that the shirt is plaid too :) And why is your hair such a pretty sight…?!

  36. I want your boots and bag!! XXX

  37. If it looks good, why the heck not and it does look oh so good. Ugh vacuuming my place…so high up on things I hate doing/don’t do. Thank god for my boyfriend. Bless him haha.

  38. […] wore a plaid flannel shirt as a skirt and tied the arms in a bow around her waist. And it looked awesome. No, seriously, I’m in […]

  39. I did too a skirtshirt like that in a stretch fabric I thought was great; a also thought for sure someone else should have thought to do it and for sure some japanese designer; they are great!
    I adore this look functional,sober but elegant

  40. Everytime you post with something from YesStyle it’s like I get a voice in my head telling me to go to YesStyle.com….

  41. OMG i love your shoes and your bag! Very good combination and suit you very well as always :)
    Have a nice weekends..

  42. I didn’t even notice that the skirt was a flannel shirt because I was too busy looking at that fabulous bag. You did a great job of repurposing that shirt.

  43. You can wear that shirt-as-skirt all day every day Shini because you look amazing! Your shoes are also to die for.

  44. This bag is freaking gorgeous! Too bad I can’t find it on YesStyle. And I love the skirt!

  45. Love the bag and the shoes!!

  46. Oh no! I linked directly to the product but now it redirects to the home page, must be out of stock :(

  47. Oh the shoes!!!!! I love them! :-)

  48. cute! love the “skirt”

  49. haha love it! I must admit my first thought before reading was ‘what the hell is that skirt’? After reading I had a chuckle and honestly thought good for you. Love a sense of humour!

  52. I was just thinking earlier whether I should wear a shirt as skirt in near future. seeing you do it, I’m even more undecided. on one hand, you’re so fab and all, but on the other hand, if I do it, I’ll just be yet another person sporting this thing (I’m not calling it a trend … yet) which is a con in my book. oh, decishuns, decishuns! ktnxbai.

  53. Lucy

    I LOVE THE BAG! i can’t find it on yesstyle either :(:( xxx

  54. Stoppp too much awesome in one outfit! That shirt-as-skirt is too good for words, very Kurt Cobain incarnated. And yah, the boots and bag? Gimme.
    p.s. sent you an email! xx

  55. L

    shini, i love this post! your boots are beautiful, that little strap on top, and the best feeling is shopping your closet and finding something perfect in there!

  64. your skirt reminds me of Scotland. :D
    and it works in the combination with the lovely shirt
    i like.

  65. […] concept a go but never quite got around to it. I was freshly inspired when I saw how nicely Park & Cube wore hers and decided to experiment with this over-sized chambray shirt from H&M. It is better to work […]

  66. Gorgeous photos, love it! XO Rebecca

  71. Shirt as a skirt…how inventive are you!

    Shanny
