F21 sweater, ASOS trumpet hem skirt, Mimco starlight necklace, Alexander Wang kori oxfords and emile tote bag

This is another one of those outfits that I never got around to posting a few months prior, a simple silhouette I’ve found myself gravitating towards on more than one occasion. While the sweater and skirt are no longer available (sorry I totally missed the boat on those), I keep seeing differing variations floating about, the navy sweater proving to be more prevalent than the skirt, yet that needs no explanation.

I received some exciting news late last week, confirming that I would be going to Wellington Fashion Week in April. I had been feeling slightly regretful for not attempting to attend anything beyond the two shows I saw last year with Nina, so I decided that I wouldn’t make the same mistake this year if I could avoid it.

    Really lovely outfit with a cute skirt & cool bag. 🙂 That’s one gorgeous necklace !
    By the way, I’ve been wondering how / where you get that “create this look” type of thing at the end of your posts? That’s a really great feature, especially if the same item you’re wearing isn’t available anywhere anymore !

    I love how those oxfords mesh well with anything from jeans to that incredibly pretty skirt you’re wearing. Love the versatility! This is such a great look on you and how cool that you’ll be attending fashion week! 🙂

    Wow, I love your bag and your skirt! The hem of the skirt makes the whole thing fun & flirty! Also, congrats on the exciting news! Fashion week can get hectic, but it’s always fun attending the shows.

    LOVE your dark outfit! I wear navy a lot and with black. In fact a navy mens jumper got so much wear this past Autumn/Winter I’m going to have to put a ban on it to give everything else a chance 🙂 The skirt is a lovely shape and I got one in tweed which I must wear before Spring!

    I adore your outfit! This is so modern and chic- the skirt is incredible!

    You make wearing a necklace look so natural and it suits your style so well. I tried wearing one this weekend (at the bloggy meet) and after a couple of hours removed it again – it’s just not me plus it didn’t go with the outfit. Sometimes you have to recognise what is your own style and not just what you think you should be wearing.

    Hope you have fun at the Wellington Fashion Week.
