Good Morning & Happy Friday!
Last weekend I had a proper clear out and wardrobe refresh. I packed away all the chunky knit sweaters and heavy winter coats and brought in my spring skirts, lighter jackets and colourful blazers. I swapped boots for sandals and generally prepared my wardrobe for the Spring/Summer season. There’s definitely been a shift in the temperatures over the last week or so with a couple of glorious summer days but in between it’s remained mild and I’ve found myself feeling dull and dreary in my usual outfits.
One thing I don’t wear enough of is skirts despite having loads. I love the look and shape of them, I’ve got all different styles from midi to maxi, short, to a-line, all different colours and patterns yet they seem to lie unworn in the wardrobe. I’ve been trying to change that and if you seen one of my recent posts (here) you’ll have noticed I stepped out my comfort zone and wore a mini and actually, I really liked it.
This skirt is one of my favourites and having picked it up in Zara last Autumn, it hasn’t had much wear at all. This is partly due to my inability to find a decent underskirt which doesn’t look awful but covers up the complete transparency. What you hopefully can’t tell from the photos is that I’m actually wearing a grey jersey midi skirt underneath which on the hottest day of the year so far with two long sleeve bodysuits underneath was a big mistake haha! I was absolutely roasting! But hey, you couldn’t see through the skirt.
I love the tulle material and pretty ballerina style, it’s so feminine yet the grey colour takes away the softness as does the leather jacket which I think goes perfectly. As stated, I’ve paired with not one but two high neck, long sleeve bodysuits (what was I thinking?). Well of course the white lace bodysuit is completely see through and it’s not exactly ideal to wear a vest underneath a bodysuit. I just happened to have a high neck white bodysuit that could be layered underneath. The lace up shoes add to the ballerina style and add some much needed height to pull off the midi skirt. It’s not always easy to work a midi skirt when your short but heels certainly help and avoid the dread of being drowned by the skirt. The leather jacket really finishes off the look and gives a rock chick vibe which is timeless.
All in all, a nice outfit for a Spring day.
Have a great weekend!
