The Doppler Effect

Crop Top: New Look
Necklace: Primark
Pencil Skirt: New Look
Rings: New Look

I am not a zebra, I am the Doppler Effect. Other Big Bang Theory fans will know where I'm coming from when I say this about my outfit today, and if you don't then I'll direct you to some explanatory images here and here. I'm really enjoying the current trend of midi-length pencil skirts which I'm seeing everywhere at the moment, but I'd been finding it relatively difficult to find some that weren't made of that really flimsy jersey type material that you can see the outline of your knickers through. When I came across this striped one in New Look I knew I had to buy it, not only was the pattern amazing but it was actually made out of a thicker material! 

Today I wore it with a plain black crop top to give a nod to the Spring/Summer trend of monochrome, but I'm planning to pick up some neon coloured ones to wear it with in the summer. I also think it would make a perfect work outfit teamed with a crisp white shirt and maybe some coloured court shoes. The only downside of this skirt is that the black stripes are made from a velvety kind of material that picks up bits of fluff like no-one's business!
