Hi....
I have just ordered this skirt ( because I have credit with Apricot and can never find anything to buy there!)

Navy Skirt

Any ideas for a top to go with it....I am hoping to wear for a christening, but also for day to day wear. I am size 14, 34f and 5'6 .... I have a bit of a tummy but a defined waist

Anyone who wants to throw in ideas for shoes etc is more than welcome!!

I like it! Navy goes with most things I think, so it depends on what colours you suit / like.

You could have a pastel pink or a really bright pink or dark red maybe. If you're more into neutrals, maybe grey or white / off white? Re style - maybe a wrap top? Think they're quite flattering for the large of nork!

Sorry "large of nork" might have sounded rude! I am also a 34F and would call myself large of nork which is why I said it so flippantly!

That's a high-waist skirt right? Normally crops look good in those, but not sure for the large of norks. I can only speak for fried eggs. ;)

No offence taken Lady, I am indeed large of nork! I do love the coast top but out of stock in 14, may try a 12..

Not sure I could carry off a crop top Cool....my stomach muscles aren't what they were!

Gorgeous skirt. I would go for a white shirt with big sleeves, tucked in, and some block-heeled courts, but you might want something more fancy-schmancy for a christening.
