OUTFIT | Speaking of uniforms…
I wrote about my love of fashion “uniforms” last week, so I guess it’s only fitting that my very next outfit post should feature one of mine!
Full skirt? Check.
Fitted/cropped top? Check.
High heels? That would be a check…
I wear some variation on this outfit at least a couple of times a week, and sometimes I get embarrassed by the sheer repetition, but then again, I guess that’s the beauty of being a personal style blogger than a “fashion blogger” – you get to just wear whatever you want!
This skirt was on its inaugural outing when these photos were taken, but I can already tell its destined to become a favourite: I love the shiny, jacquard fabric, but it proved a bit tricky to photograph properly, which is why I’ve added the slightly windswept photo below, even although the lighting is totally different it, and I hate that. The cardigan, meanwhile, is from Boden, and is another item that’s fairly new, but which I know I’ll wear loads: I like to wear very fitted tops with my full skirts, and a lot of the cardigans I find are too long and baggy to really work. This one, however, is the perfect shape, and is a gorgeous cashmere knit, too.
Finally, I’m once again wearing my Rubin brooch, although you can’t quite see him against the cardigan: gotta love that little guy! Needless to say, I wasn’t outdoors in this outfit other than to take the photos and run too and from the car, so I didn’t get too cold despite the slightly unseasonable outfit. It’s just started snowing as I write this, though, so it looks like that early spring I was hoping for isn’t going to happen: damn!
