Statement Skirt at Titanic Belfast #realmomstyle

Finally, I'm getting round to sharing my outfit from the Titanic Cenre a couple of Saturday's ago. The choir did a brilliant flashmob at a Tourist Board exhibition. It was my first flashmob and it was funny seeing people all confused as to why the person standing beside them in the crowd suddenly started singing but once we all converged on the Titanic staircase, it made more sense. It was a great morning - you can see a video of our performance taken by one of the people at the event, on this link!
For the occasion, I wore my H&M for Marni spotty skirt - I'm enjoying my statement skirts more than my statement trousers at the moment it would appear. Tried to get some photos outside the Titanic Centre but it was blowing a crazy gale so we gave up after the first few hair-raising attempts!
Coat - Zara (similar here & here)
Skirt - H&M for Marni (can be found for crazy ££ on eBay!)
Black Ankle Boots - Clarks (similar here & here)
Black Cross Body - Boden (similar here & here)
Denim Shirt - TU @ Sainsburys (similar here & here on sale!)
Necklace - c/o Chocolat Jewellery
Here's a photo I took at home when I got back - it's easier to see how I wore the skirt. It's basically the same outfit I wore last February when I went to London to meet my blogging friends - #frugalfebruary or what?! Different necklace and boots for the eagle eyed amongst you!
Do you know, it is one of those outfits that I just love wearing. It's quite dressy for the school run, but the denim and the ankle boots dress it down a bit - I'll definitely not wait until next February to wear it again!

Co-incidentally, I ended up back at Titanic Belfast again during half term, with my sister and her kids. This time, I was bit more casual in my outfit choice, opting for trainers, jeans & my BHS Pea Coat - a similar outfit to this post...


It's such a stunning building - we didn't even do the exhibition this time...just visited the shop and then had a walk outside for the obligatory photo at the big letters!
Hope your Monday treats you well - I'll update you tomorrow on my blogging event...now I'm off to collect 30 chairs to bring to our venue ... oh and I've still to decide what to wear #stress

  2. Love how you've styled the skirt with your denim shirt Avril & I bet it was an amazing experience being part of the flashmob. Everyone always seems to be so happy & carried away by the whole experience when you see videos of these - I'd love to take part in one.

  15. Avril, the blue on the skirt is just so rich and inviting (in a good way!) I couldn't stop looking at it. You look fantastic, I truly enjoy watching you style different pieces and looks and I always end up getting great ideas from you. I *may* be in London in April if you plan on heading back for another blogger meet up. If I am, I am coordinating an event with other blogger friends. I'll keep you posted — I'm due for a visit to my former home :)
