Outfit | Chi Chi London Lux skirt

pink'Lux' skirt by Chi Chi London

pink full skirt and flowers

Just to get the awkwardness out of the way first: no, I did not walk around all day clutching a bouquet of flowers, just because they matched my skirt. Not going to say I didn’t consider it, obviously, but damn, those things are heavier than they look!

No, as you may know, it was Mother’s Day here in the UK this weekend, and these photos were taken en route to my parents’ house, where I grudgingly handed over the flowers to my mum. “You should take some photos with them!” she said, as she put them in a vase. “They match your skirt!” Er, yup, done that. Sorry for using your Mother’s Day bouquet as a photo prop, mum!

Unfortunately for me, I was a being a little bit optimistic about the weather when I selected this outfit that morning (Not NEARLY as optimistic as I was the next day, mind you, when I decided it would be a good idea to try the old ‘bare-feet-in-pumps’ look on a day which turned out to be colder than it was back in January. I never learn…). Thankfully I was only outdoors for long enough to take these quick pictures, but suffice it to say, it’s not quite spring yet, although I don’t expect that’ll stop me trying to pretend that it is, because OMGICANTWAIT.

This skirt is by Chi Chi London, which is a brand I’ve been admiring from afar for a while now – you might have seen me raving about some of their dresses over on ShoeperWoman recently. This is the first item of theirs I’ve had the pleasure of actually wearing, and I almost didn’t get to wear it, because I only made it as far as the kitchen before disaster struck. We were just about to leave the house when I spotted what I assumed was an empty glass sitting on the counter, right above the dishwasher. “For goodness sake,” I thought, tut-tutting to myself as I picked it up. “How hard is it for Terry to just put his used glass IN the dishwasher, rather than leaving it lying around the kitchen?” Then I opened the dishwasher, turned the glass upside down, ready to put it inside… and yeah, that was a FULL glass of water, folks. A full glass of water which I turned upside down and poured right onto the floor, from where it splashed right back up at me, splattering the bottom of my skirt. Whoops!

Luckily it WAS just water, and it dried by the time we took these shots: Terry, however, who witnessed the incident, is never going to let me forget my stupidity, and tells me this is what happens when I try to clean up after him: needless to say, he’ll be tidying away his own dishes in future!

    I would definitely use gift flowers as a posing prop. What’s the harm – they’ll never kno – oh wait… Mind you your mum actually suggested it so it’s totally ok in this case! Not a brand I know – looking forward to checking them out!

    I do wish you’d wear something else from your beautiful collection of shoes… I mean really.. Ever since you stopped the shoeperwoman challenge, you don’t wear different shoes and just grab your go to ones…sigh. However, you look gorgeous as always 🙂

      lol! As it happens, I DID actually try on a bunch of different shoes with this (purely because I was worried that I’d get snarky comments about wearing these ones again!), but concluded that these were the shoes that worked best with the outfit, and that it would be stupid to wear shoes that DIDN’T work with the outfit, just to avoid criticism. I still think that, and as I’m the one who has to wear the shoes, I’m probably going to continue to wear the ones I want to wear, rather than feeling pressured to wear something different in every post, just to entertain people – these are my clothes, they’re not just things I wear for the blog, and like most people, I sometimes wear the same things on repeat.

    Haha, it’s so funny your Mum suggested you take photos with the flowers. And even funnier that you already had. It’s a beautiful skirt and glad to hear the water dried, it’s frustrating when something like that happens!

    Have a nice day,
    Corinne.

      Ha, she knows me well! You get used to everything potentially ending up in a blog post with me!

    Love the outfit! I’m glad that you shared with us a beautiful outfit that you enjoyed than rather than putting something together with shoes that didn’t work as well. Thanks for the things you teach me about fashion 🙂
