Just had a baby and I'm finding it impossible to get hold of an alternative to jeans at the moment. I don't do skinny jeans very well and all the skirts in the shops seem to be too short or too flared. I hate all the circle skirts in the shops and styles with gathering around the waist, I need something that will help flatten my tummy not add volume to it!
Don't mind buttons down the front.
Want something with a bit of structure for a size 14.
Don't mind a slight A line shape.
With pockets would be ideal.
Would like to wear it with bare legs in summer and with tights/boots in the winter.
Anyone have one/know of where I can get hold of one?

I get mine from Gap and Boden - but these are above the knee...

Hobbs usually do a denim one in that sort of style.

White Stuff have a few, the Carpenter skirt look nice but is just above the knee. Not cheap either, but if you get a lot of wear out of it..

Thanks everyone. The Evelyn skirt in Hobbs looks promising. I like the button down look but I was hoping for something a bit edgier. The White Stuff Carpenter skirt is nice but you are right, I really want below the knee or calf length.

I did have some nice skirts a couple of years ago but my weight has gone up and down between size 12 and 18 so have thrown them!

I'm a white stuff and boden type of girl but think per una do skirts like that sometimes.
