                                              Nothing beats a classic pencil skirt – except maybe our ultra-feminine take. The shape is flattering but comfortable for dashing about on busy days, but the Italian gingham weave and three lines of ruffles make sure it's not all work and no play.

You’ll look great next to both.

The T-shirt style is made from 100% cotton and has a playful swing skirt with a wide block panel hem. Now, has anyone got some colouring pencils we could borrow?
