An old skirt

Fabulous people of the Internet, tell me, what on earth can I do to get rid of knobbly knees?  The older I get the more knobbly they are becoming, it's a complete nightmare.  Not only do I have short stumpy legs, I now have knees that resemble a 90 year old.  Why and how is this happening?  Am I really expected to use anti aging cream on my knees as well as my face?

So, for the purpose of this blog post and to make my stumpy, knobbly self appear longer and less knobbly (how many times can I say the word knobbly) I hopped on this concrete block that I stumbled across whilst out outfit snapping.  Get a good angle on a photograph and your winning, still a wee bit knobbly but we seem to have elongated my legs a tad which, in my world, is always a bonus.  
*Must shoot all outfit shots on tall concrete blocks*

Anyway, less about the state of my knees - lets chat about the outfit...

This skirt is OLD, I am talking OLD, I'd say New Look circa 2008.  The fit was a squeeze, (hence the slight ripples in the front) but apart from that I was happy to stumble across it.  The rust colour and 60's mini vibe could totally work for being this season, had it a set of buttons down the middle I would have been laughing!  Add my usual splash of denim, a classic stripe and my obligatory gold hoops I think I have bought it right back to 2015.

  14. This outfit is so cute! and I like your knees. I'm 23 and my knees look similar to yours, I think it's because I lock my knees when I stand. It's really bad for my legs, I know, because they start to hurt after a while, but I just can't seem to cut the habit. If I try to stop it actually feels like I'm squatting and it's so strange.

  15. I adore this outfit! So cute Abbie, you look gorgeous x
