Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday!
We’re enjoying the last bit of time before normal
chaos routine starts next week 🙂 I love wearing skirts all the year round and recently Jill of Everything Just So and Adrienne of A Rich Life (on a budget) featured skirts on their fantastic ‘How I Wear My..’ series.
So this is my first pencil skirt outfit of the holidays. The nautical knit jacket is Banana Republic from a year ago here and the grey wool skirt is also BR from 2 years before that so you know I’m still mixing.With the navy version of the little vintage lambswool jumper by M&S (camel colour here), white Rag & Bone brogues and vintage bamboo handle croco bag.Second outfit with the floral pattern D&G – this is the only item of the brand I own and the fit is very nice indeed. On this occasion dressed down with a camel cotton jumper by H&M Men and Cobra Society slippers.My bag is vintage Céline and is a great size for all essentials plus a bit more and for a little goldtone statement. Layered up against the chilly breeze with a black knit jacket by Banana Republic (beige version here and here) – I tell you they had these 2 styles of knit jackets I could not resist that one season! I do wear heels …. sometimes, used to a lot more but found joy and immeasureable comfort in brogues and slippers 18 months ago!This time with a black Zara Boys cotton jumper (have it in grey too) and paired with some patent navy Mary Janes by Daniele Ancarani.If you live in the UK for any amount of time, you learn how to adapt to every nuance of climate 🙂 The little silk neckerchief by Oasis is a favourite touch.Third look with graphic print by H&M last year. I really love these shoes especially since they are more comfortable than ballet flats and slightly more flattering on the legs with just a tiny heel. I used to own a pair of blush coloured Mary Janes by Pied A Terre complete with leather covered button fastenings and I simply wore them to death.Like I said earlier about adapting to the nuance of climate – I needed these putty coloured booties by Sam Edelman to be just warm enough. I’ve long admired others who wear their booties so well with bare legs and never thought I could too but here’s the proof – yeah! It was a question of finding a style that aren’t too high up in the ankles and in the right neutral colour not to cut off my already short legs.
