The drama of wearing a skirt

I've been giving skirts a go the past few weeks. I always find dresses very easy to wear so stick to them, or jeans if I'm feeling lazy. But skirts frighten me a little bit- it means the complications of finding a top to go with it!
But a couple of months ago I saw this lovely skirt in Dorothy Perkins- black and white check high waisted tulip skirt. I thought 'you will be mine!' and have worn it muchly since. Usually I wear it with a white or black tshirt, thick tights and my black pumps. Casual for every day.
Last Wednesday I decided to give wearing a skirt OUT a go. I have this lovely little skating skirt from Topshop with a cat pattern all over it. Cuuuuute. I paid £28 for it which seemed excessive but sometimes something just grabs you and you need to own it!

Bought another skirt from H&M for only a tenner. Haven't worn it yet but it is wonderful! Stretchy cotton so very clingy but in an awesome way rather than an ill-fitting way. Black with multi-coloured polka dots and I'm thinking a t shirt with it. I shall be wearing it when I see Glasvegas next week so I will have photos taken to post here.
Just been on the Topshop website and they have some lovely new skirts in. I think this one is crazy but I absolutely love it.
