Skirt: Kelda Leigh
Shoes: Chie Mihara
Well, it really doesn’t seem to be getting in warmer in old Melbourne Town, though I was up in Sydney at the start of last week, and spring’s definitely sprung elsewhere in the country.
I’m all matchy-match today in my sea-blues and aqua’s. I’m so delighted with this skirt – I’m really pleased I decided to buy it, because it just works so well with such a myriad of tops, and it always looks good, and flatters beautifully. There really is nothing like a perfectly-fitting a-line skirt, is there?
This one one cardigan that doesn’t seem to have had much of an outing this winter, which is a shame, because it’s so soft and snuggly, and it’s the first piece of cashmere I ever bought for myself, so I’m a bit nostalgically attached to it, too. It doesn’t bear much of a resemblance to the cardigan I originally brought home from 8Inkerman though. I swapped the plain blue buttons for little rhinestones (then dubbed it my “Tiffany” cardigan), then when baby-Suki clawed a hole in it I had to re-mix it with a big applique bow, and it was re-imagined again. What’s next? As the underarms wear through I’m tempted to lop the sleeves off and make it a vest, or maybe swap them for little puff-sleeves made of the same fabric as the bow… anything goes!
The aqua looks good on you.
Love the pic with your little kitty, she looks cute. For a cat. I, personally am much more of a dog person 😛
Love those colours together – very calming 🙂
Gorgeous outfit, I love the colours!
I love that cardigan! I might something similar with a shapeless one I got from Evans in the sale earlier this year (can you believe its almost Oct?!). Also I am still on the hunt for a good denim skirt and a flattering a-line one. I’ve found one on We Are Large People’s etsy shop, which I might give a go.
Oh my god, I love your shoes. They’re adorable. Actually all of the Chie M. shoes are. But yours are perfect in colour and style! By the way love your 50’s dress. I have it too but isn’t it from H&M?
I’d be happy if you stopped by at http://finefeathersforfinebirds.blogspot.com/ and give me some feedback. I have just started blogging and would be interested in your hints, seeing that you have such a beautifully designed blog.
I’m not surprised that’s such a well-loved cardi. Such a great cut and colour for you. I love how you’ve restyled it and I’ll look forward to seeing it’s next incarnation!! x
Beautiful ensemble and I just love that skirt! Aren’t you lucky to be so creative and handy with a needle! Alas, if my pet were to claw a hole into one of my sweaters, I would have to chuck it! These shoes look perfect with this outfit, by the way.
You always look so perfect! Loving the blues on you 🙂
You look pretty:) My favorite part of this outfit are those amazing shoes! I can imagine that that skirt is very versatile.
Fab skirt. I’ve been looking for skirts but everything seems to be either denim or black. You always seem to find the perfect things 🙂
Pretty colours – so spring 🙂
I like your change of buttons.
Thanks, Carly 🙂
