Big, Bold Skirts

I felt like doing a crossover outfit between warm and cosy but not quite getting ready for the slopes. Here is one of my new favourite picks; a Valentino pencil skirt with loud, bold naturistic print. It reminds me of a could-be Florida backdrop (so gets me in the mood for SS and what’s to come!). I’ve paired it with a bottle green, cable-knit, cosy sweater by Stella McCartney. I know this is promoting bank looting in order to afford these specific picks, but my collages are meant to inspire. No carbon copies allowed! Think outside the box. Get a old skirt from your wardrobe. If you don’t own one, root through an old charity shop or second hand thrift store. Ask a friend with a taste, ask your neighbours granny. Beg, borrow but don’t steal! When you have accomplished that, get an old fisherman cable knit jumper. Oversize all the way. If you are petite, wrap a nice skinny belt around your waist to accentuate how great your waistline it. Pair with your slickest heels or groovy neutral trainers if you’re a busy lady.

These two beauties are both ASOS. All under fifty quid. And wonderful examples how you can pair oversize plain tops with funky, fussy, loud prints. Keep the colors in the same family if at all possible. Don’t go overboard.
So there you have it. Make it a big, bold skirt-type of week ladies.

Happy Dressing!

Pumpkin Spiced Style

Pumpkin Spiced Style


I just love Autumn. The season of transition, change, harvest, cosiness and certain element of hunkering-down. It’s time for hot chocolate with friends and carving pumpkins. It’s time for fall colors, chunky knit scarves and it’s even ok to order  pumpkin-spiced latte.

I have been slowly but surely introducing my knits, long(er) coats and wooly black tights. I’m secretly loving the fact I can wear my capes again but of course very grateful it is not bitter cold outside just yet!
Thanks to Primark, we can all look like Autumnal models as we strut our stuff down the ordinary street.
