Schiaparelli pink mini skirt.

How very 80-ties. The whole look is inspired by fashion from the past. I am pushing it a bit wearing a mini skirt in my late forties but I couldn’t resist. I got the skirt from a charity shop, like most of my clothes, in summer attracted by the colour. Schiaparelli pink is definitely in this season and I am taking advantage of the bold colour. As a rule, I do try to avoid putting strong colours with black, but in this case, I have broken the rules. I either wear it this way or not at all. I am limited to one pair of over the knee boots and they happen to be black. But I was trying to make the outfit lighter by exposing more skin and introducing white. Still, it is a pink skirt worn with black and white rather than monochromatic look with a splash of colour.

Wearing more pale colours in the autumn

I’m always taking advantage of the days that it didn’t rain to wear paler colours/white even in the autumn. Lots of shops do lighter colour jackets and coats. Long gone are the times when winter coats came only in dull, dark colours. The hole shift in fashion is enticing and I do get sucked into buying it and then it rains all winter long. I have pulled all things pale, new and old. The oldest is probably the bomber jacket. Pale pink and grey with metallic floral pattern, always a statement. Also like the vertical and horizontal lines of the skirt and the jacket, even though totally unintentional.

Lookbook:

Jacket: Primark

Skirt: Primark

Boots: Aldo

A white, pleated faux leather skirt worn with a short, black faux leather jacket and black over the knee, faux leather boots.

Wearing a white skirt on a rainy day is asking for trouble unless it is a faux leather pleated skirt, that any dirty water can be just wiped off it. I have paired it obviously with another faux leather garment- short, black jacket and of course faux leather black boots. A monochromatic look for a rainy day.

Dear God, how long did I toy with buying these boots? Must be over a year now. I just couldn’t justify the purchase. They are obviously not very neutral in neither the colour nor in the embellishment, but I still wanted them. Now that I have them I will better make the most of them. The first outfit is going to be rather obvious, gather everything in a similar colour and put it together, which I think I have succeeded in. Also leather and metallics seem to go together well.

Lookbook:

Top: Monsoon

Skirt: H&M

Shoes: Primark

Bracelets unknown

A slight texture overload, but very sheer at the same time. Colours very much of peaches and cream family with addition of couple darker bracelets to break it up a bit. Very summery and breazy.

Top unknown

Skirt unknown

I seem to gravitate towards similar colours, dusty pink is one of them. I had this skirt for more than 15 years, over the years it needed a few improvements, but it always fits into some of the current trends. Faux fur and leather are in, so are long skirts, so is the comfort, maybe minus the higher heels ;).
