Every Monday morning I count my blessings that I work in an office where I can get away with wearing casual clothes, especially when I wake up with a very specific outfit in mind. This was what happened with this outfit and once I had visualised it, I couldn't wait to wear it (I know, I don't get out much!) There was something just so fun about it and I felt super sassy for the whole day which is never a bad thing! I have big plans for this skirt in the spring, wouldn't the gunmetal blue/grey look ace with this sheer blouse or this jazzy Monki one? Apologies for the slightly dark photos, I wanted to take outfit pictures but it was drizzling with rain so we decided to save the camera and stay undercover...

I'm not sure what is happening with my hair here but I am impressed by its attempts to make itself into a fringe... This pink Revlon lipstick is one of my favourites, I am going to need to repurchase it soon, it has nearly worn out I have worn it so much. This necklace is another old favourite of mine, it is subtle but it jazzes up a high neckline nicely.
I am a massive fan of Essie's nail varnish and Essie 'Aperitif' is my current favourite red. It is a bright classic red and immediately makes me feel more polished when I wear it- quite an achievement when you realise just how clumsy I am... I love the natty gold buttons on this skirt too, I can't resist shiny accessories!
I bought this skirt just after we moved in the summer and have been waiting for winter to wear it with tights as it is a little on the short side otherwise. The pleats on the skirt are uber flattering (definitely the best way to hide food baby!) and these Marisota tights are delightfully jazzy. They are certainly a talking point and probably a bit of a Marmite piece but I am firmly in the love camp! I have just realised how closely I match the balcony decking too, one to add to the unlikely style inspirations list I guess! ;)
Are you a fan of jazzy tights?
