OUTFIT | The Woman in Black
Well, folks, it looks like it’s that time of year: my annual summer cold (passed on by Terry – thanks, Terry!) arrived the morning these photos were taken, which means that for once I’m not wearing sunglasses to shield my stupidly light-sensitive eyes, but to hide most of my face – gotta love how big sunglasses can do that!
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about my face, I’m here to talk about the skirt, which is from Apricot , and a nice mix of casual and dressy, I thought. I have a ton of black, 50s-style skirts of course, but I didn’t have one with a gauzy, polka dot layer over the top, so that’s justification enough as far as I’m concerned – and at least the windy day let me show it off a bit, too!
I decided to brighten this look up a bit with a couple of pops of red (and yes, I DO hate myself a little for using the phrase “pop” in relation to colour – I feel like SUCH a fashion blogger!): my capsule wardrobe is full of these two colours, and although these pieces aren’t part of that “capsule”, they’re just so easy to throw together that I’ve been wearing them quite a lot lately. I do normally add a bit of white, too (usually in the form of something striped), but I guess my skin will just have to fulfil that role here – it’s almost pale enough![separator type=”thin”]
