So I can finally show you a look with this gorgeous leather skirt that I bought from Reiss a couple of months ago now. I wore this outfit a few weeks before Christmas and have to say I did find this skirt unexpectedly difficult to style. Though this is due to the fact that I just love it so much, that I wanted to create a look that showed off it's perfectness in the best possible way. With nothing coming to mind and satisfying that perfect image, I decided to leave it a while.
So eventually I came to styling it with my navy roll-neck sweater from Cos, a piece that I've practically lived in all December. It seems navy and olive green has become an unintentional favourite colour combination of mine this winter, so it was only fitting that I styled my navy top with this olive green skirt. I wore my KG boots and added a little touch of burgundy with my ankle socks and then my final item of clothing was this gilet by 2nd Day. I won't deny the fact that I was indeed questioning whether I liked such a volumed piece on top with a mid length skirt and I'll admit that did check myself at least two or three times in the mirror in an attempt to try and get used to how these pieces looked together and to be perfectly honest it was only when I looked back at the pictures, that I was glad I went for it. I know it won't be everyones taste but hey, i'm sure a lot of my outfits aren't!
Of course I needed to add some finishing details, so I wore my navy beanie hat and layered up a couple of my necklaces, something I wouldn't usually wear with a turtleneck or a roll neck but thats why I firmly believe in the saying "never say never" especially when it comes to style and fashion!
Well I think I have exhausted myself writing this, so I bid you farewell. Take care my dears,
