This was going to be a ‘what I wore to Port Eliot’ post but seeing that the rain didn’t even let up for one consistent hour the entire time we were away, this wasn’t the case.
I did, however, wear the skirt. But it was worn with a K Way anorak instead, zipped up and tied up around the hood. I’d love to say I looked as chic as this, and I would’ve if I could!
That’s not to say we didn’t still have a brilliant time – it’s a festival I love and it surprises me every year – Stanley Tucci performing his favourite children’s book, a silent film accompanied by a modern orchestra, foraging for medicine…it was just a little (okay A LOT) muddier than we anticipated.
This skirt actually hit its fame late last year, as many I know bought it for the Christmas parties. I resisted its temptation but when I was doing a bit of ‘festival’ shopping, I found it again. Last year I vowed to wear more sequins to Port Eliot (there is a lot of fabulous flamboyance and I felt a little dull in jeans and a tee) – and there this skirt was: IN THE SALE.
It was fate, right? And actually, since owning it I’ve worn it a couple of time just with a tee to meetings and brunch with friends. Who knew, a sequin skirt could be this versatile…note to self: wear more sequins.
