what i wore - patterned top & navy skirt

all items – charity shops

i really wear quite a bit of navy, don’t i? as much as i love a bit of black, my dark colour of choice is actually navy as i feel it is much more suited to my fair skin. i feel like black is a bit too harsh and that navy ‘pops’ a little more. it goes with colours just as well as black and i think it looks super nice with tans and browns. are you more of a navy or black person?

i feel like this top makes me look even more *booby* than i already am, especially with a belted skirt ..to be honest it does look better with trousers or over the top of a thin jersey pencil skirt but i still like wearing it like this, ‘rules’ be damned! i love the pattern and the v-shaped neckline though, both of which drew me to it.

i realise we’re near the end of june and this isn’t a particularly summery outfit, but the skirt is super floaty and the open toed shoes allow enough breathing room for now. think i’m gonna have to bare my legs soon though, ahh!

    I love midi skirts with button fronts, I recently found a pale blue one in a charity shop but I’ve been searching for a black one like this too – must keep my eyes peeled!

      sadly they’re not working buttons! i do have a denim-y midi skirt with real buttons though. this is actually navy but i would love a black one too. hope you find one!

    I’ve become quite a fan of navy too in the last few seasons and find it suits me a little better than black. Hard to shake off the need to wear black sometimes though ;)

      as much as a love colour, i do love wearing black too. do find i’m very often drawn to navy though, so maybe my body just *knows* ha!

    First of all how good does your hair look – I love it and as always I am a huge fan of polka dots and think this outfit looks amazing

      thanks! my fringe is looking a bit wonky though, ha. i think i was definitely drawn to this top for the slight polka dot-ness of the pattern.
