flounce and flare

ASOS grey tank, 3.1 by Phillip Lim skirt, Whistles leather jacket, Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Juliet & Company necklace, Marc by Marc Jacobs bow bracelet

I always feel so completely and utterly girly whenever I put on a full skirt, it’s as though it brings back memories of being young and dressing up in a pink tutu, and I just can’t stop myself from twirling around in circles. Although on a blustery day like this it was all I could do to stop my skirt from blowing up in the wind. It’s the kind of clothing that makes me feel as though I haven’t truly grown up yet. I recently decided to pounce on a couple of flouncy skirts which are making their way to me from across the globe, which I’m hoping will inject a little bit more fun into my wardrobe. Having spent so much of this past year focusing on having a streamlined wardrobe, I feel like I’ve forgotten that I’m still young, and I should grasp this opportunity to have fun with what I wear rather than restrict myself to certain pieces so heavily.

    Oh interesting you said that because that’s how I felt recently…. Am also trying to find some elements of fun instead of just looking for investment pieces all the time… Great outfit and I adore the shoes. 🙂

    I adore this outfit, I am trying to work on my skirt collection as I think that a full or pencil skirt instantly makes anyone look feminine and pretty. But I like an outfit with some omph and the leather jacket sure did that. Perfection!

    Such a gorgeous outfit! I love how you’ve contrasted such a pretty delicate skirt with a leather biker. Very edgy yet feminine.
