Kudos to me for the original title and grumpy outfit pictures. I’m probably the least happy person to ever have their photo taken. On account it took me about ten years to set up the tripod, only to realise the camera was on the wrong setting. I’m still learning to take good outfit shots, but I always think blogs are a little more relatable if you get to see the person behind the words, you know?
For some reason, in almost all of my outfit shots, the white wall behind me came out yellowish. It got so frustrating editing the colours only for the photos to end up looking kind of strange and pixelated. Eventually I became impatient and hastily cut myself out of the background in Photoshop and I’m not going to lie, I kinda love the result. They’re so obviously a cut and paste jobby because my Photoshop skills do not extend that far but I like the scrapbook look. Anyway, here is me. Looking (less than) adoringly into the camera lens.
I always find it awkward to decide what to wear in these transitional seasons. One minute it’s too warm for a jumper and the next it’s sleeting. It’s okay when I’m working from home because I can add or shed layers when I need to. But when I’m out and about I need something a little more versatile, otherwise I end up being too warm or too cold.
To be honest, I never really considered skirts in autumn or winter. I’m not that fond of my legs, and I imagined my legs would freeze. But paired with a jumper it’s a kind of illogical outfit that complements the illogical weather we’re having.
The skirt is from Wednesday’s Girl. I think the pattern and colours capture autumn perfectly. Whenever I wear it, it reminds me of fallen leaves.
I usually pick clothes that are a bit more sustainable. I bought a midi black polka dot skirt from Fabienne Chapot over the summer which was made from recycled bottles. I’ve been quite considered with what I’ve been buying, but this was a one-off.
Other Outfit Details
Here you can see the pattern of the skirt up close. I picked it up from ASOS for £18 which is an absolute steal. I also accessorised with a Liars and Lovers layered necklace which I do love, but the necklaces are all separate which means they’re a bit of a faff having to put on every day. I guess it means I get three necklaces for the price of one though, and if I want to wear one on its own I can.
I tend to wear my doc martens with skirts if I want to toughen up the look a bit, or I just wear some trainers if I’m wanting to keep it casual.
What do you think of the skirts in autumn / winter trend?
