Top: Dorothy Perkins – remixed
Melbourne’s having yet another cold snap, with temperatures hovering around the twenty-degree mark, but this is unashamedly a warm-weather ensemble.
Which today was decidedly not.
I got struck down with a KILLER lurgie over the weekend, and spent most of the last four days laid up in bed feeling sorry for myself while The Sophisticate looked after me. As a result, this outfit (actually Friday’s) is showing up on the blog a bit late.
Something about this bright red circle skirt screams summer. It arrived in the cooler months and I tried my best to winterise it, but in the end I had the resign myself to the fact that it would have to have to be shelved away until it it got hot.
And now it’s cold again.
Still, there’s a fair bit of summer still to come, with lots of opportunities to wear the skirt, and when I’m sweating through my fourth 35+ degree day in a row, I’ll be thinking longingly back on this cool-not-cold weather.
Earrings: Ruby Dalmation
Meanwhile here’s another sneek-peek Wedding would-have-been.
I bought these earrings thinking they might do well as my wedding earrings, but I think they’ve been deemed not-formal-enough. Oh, too bad, so sad. It means I get to wear them straight away! Hurrah!
I love this outfit! That heart top is just so cute. And the would-have-been wedding earrings are so sweet!
Thanks Katie – I do love them, I haven’t quite decided against them yet, might try them with the dress and see!
Sorry to hear you’ve been crook my dear! Love this outfit. That skirt is lovely. Also your earrings – I’d say they were ok for a wedding!! I wear some pearl earrings I bought for £8 from a market near where I worked.
Thanks, Claire – feeling much improved, thanks heavens! I haven’t written the earrings off yet – I’ll have to try them with the dress…. which I pick up this week! (EEEEK!)
LOVE the skirt, but you forgot the twirly photo!
LOL, I tried, but I kept flashing my knickers!
Cute dress! And as for the day-whatever is going to happen, will. Roll with it and enjoy. After all-you are marrying the Sophisticate-not anyone else. As long as you two are happy-the rest will fall into place.
Thanks Tami! Good advice!
