Style Challenge: Day Four

Day 4
Necklace - Vintage, Navy Bowler - M&S, Patent Loafers - New Look.

The best pieces in and girls wardrobe are the versatile ones and this skirt is quickly becoming a staple in mine. Despite wearing it on day two of the challenge, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to style it again. Last time it was quite a smart look but for a spot of book shopping I wanted something a little more comfortable. The peachy colour is a bit of a wild card for me but it just felt right, somewhere in the back of my mind I thought of the colour palette from the Luella AW09 collection - The one inspired by Cornish witches. Right towards the end a Luella show pony, with gigantic crimped hair trots out wearing a peach party frock, navy cardigan and grey tights. I've always loved the colour combination but I've never been brave enough to try it out, that is until now. Incidentally the navy bowler is from M&S too but I bought it before I was even asked to take part in the challenge, I've been looking for a blue one for years so I snapped it up as soon as I saw it.

  12. Those colors are gorgeous together! I have been craving anything peachy colored lately, so to see that sweater... I'm jealous. It's so pretty! And I love how different the skirt looks in the two ways you've styled it.

  14. Very happy to vote for you as I've been following your blog for sometime. Perhaps that's weird as I'm old enough to be your mother! Speaking of whom, I came across her totally randomly on Twitter when she was retweeted by India Knight. It's a small virtual world.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

  19. I have this jumper - it's delightful apart from the fact it malts on everything! I have been through 2 lint brushes from H&M since I owned it. Now if the weather could stop with this silly heatwave and crack out autumn so I could wear it I would be most pleased xx

    thanks!

  21. I always wash wool by hand with Woolite and it looks just as good as it did when I bought it. It's great quality and super cosy but as with all angora it does moult.
