GRANNYCHILD

Wednesday, 28 March 2012

Yeah, so, I wore Granny-Child clothes again today, which I spent wandering around marvelling at the beautiful architecture in Malaga and pretending to be cultured in the Picasso Museum... The museum was actually really interesting, I wasn't the biggest fan of Picasso's more famous work, but I really warmed to it after seeing a chronological exhibition, which gave me more of an understanding of the his artistic process.

Anyway, here are the clothes:

Hat - Topshop; Scarf (worn around hat) - Thrifted; Sunglasses - Bottega Veneta; Top - Topshop; Skirt - ASOS; Socks - Topshop; Loafers - Russell and Bromley; Rucksack - Topshop

I enjoy the fact that I look quite a lot like a tablecloth, but I'm not too sure about the length of the skirt. I'm considering taking it up... What do you think?

I also massively indulged and had churros for breakfast (because I'm a big fatty!).


Needless to say, my skirt was uncomfortably tight all day, but it was totally worth it. I'm planning on learning to make churros, and the fantastically thick, not too sweet hot chocolate that the Spanish are so very good at!

  1. I love your skirt and it looks great at the length it is, but I'm sure it would still look amazing if you took it up xx

    1. Thank you sweetheart, I'm still mulling it over! There's actually a matching crop-top on the website, but I think that may be a step too far, even for me...

    1. Thank you very much! It's a super-effective look if man-repelling is your thing.

  3. Yeah I think the skirt should be taken up a little but it looks good on you nonetheless. As for churros, half my family is Spanish and when my grandmother was still alive we had the tradition of coming together on New Years day and eat home made churros together. Of course with large cups of home made (or actually home-melted, with a reasonable amount of milk added to it) chocolate! It's a lot of work making those churros yourself, especially to get them just right, but I think it's worth it!

    1. God that sounds fab. I don't think I'll ever be that adept at churros making, but it's worth a try!

  4. I've been staring at churros for ages in my baking books but daren't attempt them for fear of it going terribly wrong and possibly some kind of explosion of hot sugar in my kitchen... xxxx

  5. I say take it up, but then I am a bit afraid of skirts that don't flash my bum, so don't listen to me!

    1. Right then, I'll just totally ignore whatever you have to say on the matter. Good luck on the shorts hunt!

  6. I actually love this length, although I think it would look just as lovely if you took it up to the knee!

    1. Thank you! I'm thinking of waiting until the knee brace comes off (it almost covers it!) and then taking it up to knee length. The hundreds of hours of my youth wasted in compulsory Textiles lessons may just pay off yet!

    1. You may indeed, as long as you keep up a constant narration of my life because I think you're hilarious. It's quite full due to my outrageous spending habits, but there's always room for a little one!
