I recently got the bright blue midi skirt from my mother. Funny, because I can remember very well the time when she wore it. With an ivory, graphically patterned silk blouse. There are even pictures in the family album – Mama with the blue skirt and in the arm – ME! I have not seen it for a long time, but now it’s back. I am very happy about the reunion and will give it a stage with this post. Curtain up for … the retro skirt in blue!
My-GREENstyle look: Retro skirt in Blue
Mama’s skirt: I love the fresh color and the clean A-line cut – apart from the fact that midi skirts are once again en vogue, it is already an absolute favorite because of the cuddly wool. As my “new” retro skirt shows, everything is repeated again and again in fashion. So: Always keep your favorite pieces well, even if you feel like they are gone. At the latest when your own children are big enough, the old favorite pieces are used again.
In the great blue, I unfortunately found no sustainable, buyable counterpart, but this black model of Filippa K is so beautiful, that I would secure it immediately, if I wouldnt have already Mama’s famose retro skirt in the closet.

And again write down, so I do not forget: WEAR SKIRTS
Shirt: Slim fit, just the shape of pretty, just indicated sleeves (not too long, not too short – perfect!). And a fantastic neckline – round, not too big and not too close to the neck. I’m special? I do not think so. I like the other shirts not so much. Here, by the way, you will find my favorite shirts that have accompanied me through the summer. This shirt is made from organic cotton.

Jacket: I’ve been wearing this woolen cardigan for many years. I like the short, chunky cut, the art leather edging and the zipper. Somehow my cardigan has such a light rocky touch. Fits perfectly from slim to flared pants and gives the straight skirt the necessary twist, so you do not look too good.
I’ve been looking for a long time until I’ve found something similar about what is currently available. With Lanius I then found a great, GOTS-certified alternative.

Fishnet-Tights: And now we come to my current sustainability highlight: the knitted tights from the Kunert Blue collection. The traditional stocking manufacturer now really take-off and launches with Kunert Blue a real world novelty. This beautiful tights are made from recycled fishing nets that float around the ocean, because they are torn off somewhere and now are killing many fish.
