Tuesday: it felt a bit nippy this morning, the first morning dipping below double figures for the year. So after all my complaining about a too-long summer, I'm suddenly reminded how far more severely averse I am to cold winter mornings .... wot a hypocrite eh?
I've had this skirt almost three years now. It's been such a goodie, it works with just about everything I've got. I can't believe I got tired of it for a while and almost took the scissors to it to make something else.... o the blasphemy!
I love this kind of outfit for winter; easy and comfortable to wear and the long layers look elegant I think, as well as adding warmth. Stacked draped layers, in natural fibres, with contrasting textures, and in soft solid colours sometimes with a subtle self-pattern. Please note the poetry of the alliterative finish there :)
