Blouse: Harris Scarfe
Skirt: City Chic
I wasn’t sure this combination of prints would actually work together, but the result’s not too bad.
I bought this stripy nautical skirt from City Chic almost as soon as it came out, but it’s a piece I actually have a lot of trouble dressing with. The stripes are perhaps just a modicum too slender, and if I’m being honest I would have preferred navy blue to black.
I’ve tried to wear it with both black and red t-shirts, but they looked odd tucked in, and left loose over the waistband of the skirt, and my body looked oddly propotioned.
No, I’m afraid that this skirt is a one-hit-wonder, and probably won’t be the Essential Summer Item I’d envisaged when I first bought it.
So, in other news, The Sophisticate and I spent the weekend away – we flew up to Sydney, then drove down to Nowra to suss out our wedding venue for the first time (amazing, BTW)
We took lots of photos… did you want a sneak peek, or did you want to wait until February for The Big Reveal?
