If you have had your eyes peeled for the latest trends you will know that you can not escape two things, 1. Checks are everywhere 2. And so is the colour RED. That being said Midi skirts crept in last season and have given no signs of leaving any time soon. If you have been reading our blog for a while, you will know I could not give two hoots on whats on trend, but more if that item suits my figure. For me, my style is always evoling, because I am a emotional dresser! In the morning depending on my mood, and what I am doing that day, dictates to what colour and style I will adopt for that day. I always want to push my boundaries to never get bored of my capsule wardrobe and for me trying out different styles and making them work for my figure is what its about. The Midi skirt has wangled its way into my capsule wardrobe. Today I have styled it with a soft, snuggly Jumper from George@ASDA Simple! The colours really complement each other, and when it gets a bit more chilly I will add a pair of black tights to keep warm.
This Checked Midi Skirt is from Zara and is quite a thick material which is great for the upcoming cold winter we are expecting. It has three large buttons down the side and splits at a more modest level. Im looking forward over the next weeks seeing what this skirt will also work well in my wardrobe. Im in the process of creating a video on ‘Shopping my wardrobe’ where I will be re-working keys pieces from my wardrobe to get some fresh ideas on new outfits without spending a penny!. Around November time I start to get itchy feet or hands should I say, as I start to get a bit bored of the new items I added at the end of august, but I dont need to buy anything new so there is the tug of war I have. I am determined not be sucked in by all this fast fashion and overspending on things when it is not necessary. I feel in the blogger world that we can be the worst for this. With PR brands throwing their latest items to try, its hard to strike the balance. Sorry about the rant I think this is subject I might leave for another blog post!
Thanks for reading and dont be a stranger.
