One of the oldest items in my wardrobe is a khaki skirt I bought from Next. I wore it a few weeks ago when visiting family, my sister-in-law commented on how much she liked it, saying she'd never seen it before. I was really surprised by this as I've had it for years. It's very likely that this skirt predates my husband!

It's made an appearance here more than once, the first time was June 2011. I have no idea why I thought that a khaki skirt teamed with a grey t-shirt, with my pale complexion was a good idea!
We live and learn.
It reappeared during my Wearing It All challenge in September 2011. A like it teamed with a black top, it's a much better way to wear it don't you think?
A year later I was wearing it with burgundy and tweed - a combination I have to say I loved! I think I need another jumper just like this one.
Despite wearing it a lot it didn't make another blog appearance until August '15. I tend to wear it with striped tops these days, I like the combination of texture and stripes.
In March '16 it featured in my first capsule wardrobe and it was worn more than ever, although I don't think I'll ever wear it with my cat jumper again *hides face in hands*. I do like it combined with orange though.
I don't wear it without tights so I put away for spring and summer to return in Autumn '16. Probably my favourite way to wear it is with my navy jumper and long sleeved t-shirt, I love it teamed with navy and the stripey top showing at the arms and waistband delight me.
It's also in my current capsule too. This is one of my capsule wardrobe cheats - you see the pale blue top showing beneath my jumper? It's not in my capsule, it's one of my PJ vests, I have a variety of colours and often use them to add another layer, or a splash of colour to an outfit.
