..so it’s what I wore
‘Lipstick on your collar’ slogan sweater from Joanie Clothing, white frilly shirt underneath from La Redoute, denim wrap skirt from Next, black opaques from Marks and Spencer, patent triple buckle pointed flats from New Look, watch by Michael Kors
I have fallen a bit out of love with jeans. Don’t worry, I’m sure it won’t last but after spending what felt like the longest summer ever in nothing but skirts or dresses, encasing my legs back in denim just didn’t feel all that appealing. I definitely feel more comfortable in skirts or dresses. Just more like me, you know? But ditching the denim definitely left a gap in my wardrobe and I thought a denim skirt might be just the thing I needed to bridge it.
Finding the right denim skirt wasn’t all that easy though. I think they are one of those things that are quite tricky to get right. Let’s face it, they are potentially right up there with The Mum Coat in the style stakes. I wanted knee length or thereabouts so of course, all I could find was super short or midi. And I also wanted a dark wash denim but nearly all the ones I found were distressed. But eventually I found this wrap skirt in Next of all places which ticked all of my boxes. Now I have to say that Next isn’t somewhere that I shop very often these days. It’s always a bit on the safe side for me. And by safe I mean frumpy. But I’m the first to admit that I was wrong. At least in the case of this skirt!
Now the sweater from Joanie I absolutely LOVE! It wasn’t until I came to upload the picture that I realised that the slogan was in reverse. You know, what with it being a mirror selfie and all. What an idiot. I swear if I had half a brain I would be dangerous. But do me a favour and imagine it the right way around..? Gorgeous, huh? I actually got the sweater with 10% off by signing up to the Joanie newsletter which I think is an ongoing promotion, it’s certainly still showing on their website right now if you want to take a look. They have so many gorgeous things it really is a gem of a shop if you like clothes a bit on the vintage or quirky side like me. (They’re not paying me to say this by the way, I just love the shop and know that some of you might too!) I’m wearing it with a shirt underneath because this is Yorkshire in November but I really like the contrast of the white cuffs and frilly collar against the black sweater.
So that was me, what have you been wearing this week?
