The €20 Skirt That Changed Me

Mini skirts, they’ve never been my favorite. Until I found this wool one with a fine hounds tooth print in the most perfect fall colors. Bonus points: it was in the sales corner!

I wasn’t even supposed to be in Uniqlo, but I had a really bad day and decided I deserved some shopping. My boyfriend was out with friends and I had the evening to spend alone so I went for it. It doesn’t help that I live in the middle between Belgium’s largest mall and Antwerp’s main shopping street. Such easy access to shops is asking for trouble.

Back to Uniqlo.

I’ve know Uniqlo for a few years now, but have never shopped anything from them before. You might find that strange, because Uniqlo has a great range of basics at an affordable price range and it’s no secret that I love my basics. The thing is that the colors they often choose are not quite the exact shade I was looking for or the print is not perfectly what I had in mind etc… . I do love their cashmere selection and their men’s socks are the best! You may remember me raving about the socks on my Instagram stories, haha.

I went to the mall to pick up a few things from H&M and Uniqlo happens to be right across. I thought I’d go in to look for an ivory cashmere cardigan (which they didn’t have) and then got distracted by this skirt. It’s 100% wool and has an olive/grey-burgundy pattern that I love and was on sale for only €20,00. Best buy of that day, considering I eventually returned everything I had gotten from H&M. Oops. I’ve worn my Uniqlo skirt so much, I have convinced myself to look for similar skirts in camel brown and black, haha!

    Nikki, this is a really adorable skirt and your outfit is picture perfect! Your boots are stunning, too. I recently started wearing mini skirts again with lots of fun tights. I scour the second hand shops in my area for cute ones and the hunt may be as much fun as finding the perfect skirt!

    No wonder you purchased this skirt. The colors are perfect, it looks so great on you with your slender legs! I guess I missed my chance to visit a Uniqlo, I see they are in Orlando, FL, (I used to live not too far from there) but nowhere near where I’m living now, darn!

    I just love the rich warm hues in this outfit and I just ordered a cardi in a similar color to the one you have on. This skirt is so cute on you, love it with the brown boots.

    That skirt is a great find! And it looks fantastic on you! Your legs look miles long! Love it paired with burgundy too!

    I like this skirt on you Nikki and the soft colours of the whole outfit. I think your styling of the mini skirt is impeccable
