Yep, I'm still going on about the weather. In fact, I can't seem to stop myself! There's something not quite right when it's still the tail end of what should be quite a chilly winter...and I'm planning a weekend trip to the beach. Here in Sydney, the temperature is hovering fairly steadily around the 25°C degree mark with an occasional burst of torrential rain, a little further north in Brisbane it's easily soaring into the 30's, and Melbourne...well, who knows what's going on down there - gale force winds, heat waves, biting cold, rain....all in one day, generally.
Clearly, the weather cannot be relied upon. Which is why this Umbrella Skirt by Cecilia Felli is pure genius. Not that you'd just take off your skirt and put it over your head if it started to pour (I hope), but anyone who can fashion an umbrella into an adorable skirt Project Runway: MacGyver Edition stylee definitely deserves all the kudos going their way.
What really sells it for me is the photos of some serious skirt-swirlin' goings on. I can almost hear the satisfying swish of the former umbrella...and what good is a skirt if you can't swirl around in it...and in the rain no less?!
