It being my birthday and all, I did a tiny bit of self-gifting.
Leopard print skirt by Baum & Pferdgarten, who are a Danish company. It's a bit mid-life crisis, but I love it anyway. I'm wearing it here with a J Crew cardigan (just for a change).
Next up, new jeans and Boden skirt
On my winter wardrobe wishlist was a new pair of jeans. I wanted them to be not too skinny, but not too baggy or flared. I found my perfect pair in a shop in Sydney, but they only had a very faded and destroyed wash available. After a quick sleuth on the web, I found the same style but in a darker wash on Matches, so snapped them up.
Very fortuitously, Matches had sent me an $80 voucher for my birthday (so kind!), so they ended up being not too $$. They're Rag & Bone Dre boyfriend jeans and I think they're going to be a good addition to my admittedly ample jean collection.
What's your favourite jeans brand? Any experience with Rag & Bone?
The Boden skirt was a bit of an experiment.
I've never ordered from Boden before, but again, had a 20% off voucher, so took the plunge.
The skirt is cotton, with a cotton lining (hurrah!!! Dani would be very happy!) and an A-line shape. I like the print and the fabric, but there is something just a bit mumsy about the cut on me....
What do you think? I'm going to keep it, but am thinking of getting it tailored or taken up just a smidge.
I'd welcome your thoughts on what to do with it.
Mumsy or not?
