Hello everyone , hope this finds all well in your corner of the world.
Last week I joined Gail of @ Is this Mutton (who kindly organised the challenge) and my fellow skirt lovers for a 7 day skirt challenge on Instagram.
I have always been a lover of skirts and over many years have amassed quite a collection. I guess that really doesn’t make it a challenge but I enjoyed discovering new combinations.
My first skirt is one that has been on the blog on many different occassions. The skirt is by Moyuru and here it is paired with a black and white Paula Ryan top and apple green Mis Mosh jacket. Accessories were red Trippen shoes , bright socks, black boater , multi coloured necklace and bangles and Preen Sunnies.
Day 2 , another much loved and worn black Moyuru skirt paired with a black top and cream plaid Mos Mosh jacket , leopard print turban , leopard tights and tan lace ups.
Day three in the garden in another much loved skirt, this one is a navy blue by Rundholz . I discovered this German brand a few years ago and they aren’t cheap but the quality is always excellent and the styles are timeless so I know I will continue to wear them for many years. This is paired with a cream Covers jacket that I have now had for probably fifteen years. On anther note for my gardening friends the rose behind me is Fatin Latour , an old rose.
A bit of a change for me on day four , a much shorter tiered little Paula Ryan skirt. There was a method to my madness in including this little number as I asked for advice on styling this one as I feel its a bit short for me these days. The general concensus was that a tulle under layer would work beautifully . A little pink and black vintage jacket and leggings, white shoes, sunnies and bangles complete the look.
For day five I choose one of my all time favourites, an olive green Sarah Paccinni skirt that I wore to my son’s wedding back in 2016. At the time I knew a skirt was a better option for me as opposed to the traditional dress (it was a Summer wedding) as I would wear again and again. I paired the skirt with a pre-loved Scanlon and Theodore jacket and suede sling back sandals . I love these shoes but now remember why they aren’t worn very much (a bit high now).
This was also the day I coloured my hair red again , I feel much more me again.
November is a busy birthday month in the family. We travelled to Hobart last Sunday to join the family to celebrate Harry’s fourth birthday, those years have simply flown. We were in Portugal the day he arrived and I remember vividly the excited call from our son.
I loved this family shot of Harry , little Hamish , his Mum Sarah and Dad Zac.
The birthday’s continued on Tuesday as I joined my sister Lyn for lunch to celebrate her day .
Summer has arrived here suddenly so I had to change about some of the outfits I had planned.I knew I had to include this Rundholz check skirt in the challenge so I paired it with a black Trelise Cooper blouse, black patent belt , sunnies and black boater.
My grand finale for the challenge had to be tulle , I am rather late to the tulle party , maybe its the little ballerina in me that never was , who knows but I love wearing it now, goes to prove its never too late. I have paired the coffee coloured skirt with a bright Ted Baker blouse, cream sunnies and bangles and old Sergio Rossi wedges.
Thank you Gail so very much for organising the challenge .
