My outstanding friend Roisin brought me this H and M skirt back from Montreal. It was a lot harder to get over here. I love it. It’s not the easiest skirt to just throw on on any given morning as it requires a little thought. On this day I wore it with an oversize black tee with the sleeves pushed up, liiiiiiiight black tights and some boots. I also went for a chunky choker! The key for wearing decadent items day to day is to work on making the rest of your outfit that bit more casual.
I’ve always been a fan of head pieces. 70’s bands, bejeweled chains, anything that will subtly (or sometimes not so) add to what I’m wearing. Since the weather is beginning to feel somewhat summery/festivally I’m searching for inspiration, only this time I’m thinking the more embellished the better. Over-sized jewels are BIG this season so I’m on a mission to go full whack. Stay tuned for an outfit post. For now, this is what’s feeding my summer buzz.
I’ve had a black maxi skirt for a while now. For reasons unknown to me, it always gets shoved to the back of my wardrobe. It’s not very winter friendly unless you wear tights underneath which I’m not a fan of so it’s usually kept for milder climes. Like now. So today I fished it out and went a searching for some inspiration. I came to the conclusion that it works best with loose, folky tops/shirts. Boho if you like. Sequins also work. Top it off with a trilby and some biker boots and you’re ready to go. I paired mine with a loose, denim, studded River Island shirt, black ankle boots and a tweed trilby. The perfect amount of warmth. Here’s some inspiration I found online.
