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.

Ryan Roche green top, €1.115 / Valentino pencil skirt, €1.845 / Charlotte Olympia black pumps, €835 / STELLA McCARTNEY man bag, €1.470 / Long wear lipstick, €34
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.
