I'm tentatively dipping my toes back into the blogging world. Work seems to be taking up a huge amount of time and energy, as does sorting stuff out in general. The renovation is coming along - pics of that later in the week if anyone's interested.
For now, here are a couple of Spring-like outfits.
A lot of my clothes are in storage while we live in our rented digs, so I'm trying to be creative with my basics.
In addition, my budget for clothing is zero this season, due to renovations etc.
Anyway, here's a basic outfit consisting of Frame denim jeans, old Acne shirt, and newish Nicholas Kirkwood pumps:
This outfit is very 'new' for me. I usually steer well clear of full skirts, as I think they overwhelm my frame. However, this floral skirt arrangement (Karen Walker current season) was one of my last purchases before the Great Budgetary Restrictions kicked in. I have an abundance of pencils skirts, so this seemed like an interestingly different addition.
It has a 50s vibe, and I'll wear it with pumps or sandals once Sydney picks up its weather game. For now it's a bit chilly to get the legs out:
Karen Walker 'Scorned' skirt, old denim jacket, Daniele Arancani boots, Mansur Gavriel bag.
Without jacket - it's a big skirt!
Close-up of the fabric - it's a heavy curtain-like material with lovely mosaicy patterns.
What's your take on full skirts? Yay or Nay?
