WIW : Endless Summer

Hi Fabbers,

Well I wore this in spite of our endless heat lol. It as fine for the office, where I spent the day but would have been too warm if I was out and about.

The skirt is Laura Ashley (see # 4). I bought it months ago (before Xmas) and it has been sitting in my wardrobe while I work out how I want to wear it. It's a lovely weight jersey and will work through all seasons except for high summer. I liked it with the tailored jacket and think I will wear a similar tweaked version for winter but with boots.

Top and sleeveless jacket you have seen many times before and these shooties haven't had a lot of love this summer. They are looking tired and may soon be retired.

A couple of challenging days at work and sleepless night have made me 'chop of my head' so as not scare any small children or animals :)

I think this works? Would love your thoughts and any suggestions you may have for styling this skirt.

#2 is supposed to show the drape but the black really is challenging to photograph :(

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week.

xxx Deborah

    You look lovely! I really like the sharp contrast between the shiny white/cream and the black - it looks great. The skirt is perfect for your style!

    I am really enjoying your style. That skirt is simplistic in its beauty I could see it belted or with statement jewelry. It could be a supporting player with a beautifully patterned top or dressed down with a denim jacket or sweater.

    love the length of this skirt, and the drape is lovely. i like it as styled. i'm thinking ahead to true fall weather and imagining it with booties and tight or a nice pointed toe pump or flat.

    Like the skirt's drape so much! Artsy and very very you! Love the shiny whites with it(better than some matte perhaps) and I see the sleeveless blazer is  doing a good job for you! Love the ideea of pairing skirt  with a simple white tee and a denim jacket(&maybe with some white cons?) for more casual settings, of course.

    You are one step ahead of trend Deborah with this midi-length skirt.
    I can see it with light-coloured shoes/boots working well too.

    Looks great although your beautiful face and hair are an essential part of your style!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 5 years ago

    I'd recognize this as your style even headless, but much prefer your great haircut and pretty face!

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous skirt and outfit!! YLF in spite of being headless ;)

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    That skirt was a find and just your style.

  • Windchime replied 5 years ago

    Lovely drape on your skirt. I bet you'll wear it frequently once the weather cools down more. It'd be interesting to see it styled as Lyn67 suggested.

    Hope the work situation resolves and you can sleep better.

    Just great! In fact, thank you for posting this as i've been on the hunt for a slim-silhouette midi skirt which still allows for plenty of leg freedom and this is just the ticket.

    I agree you do look even fabber with your hair and wonderfully done macquillage. But, as one who takes many selfies, i also understand that every once in a while there's a picture you don't want to loose on the world!!  ;)

    Happy Day! steph

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear about the work stress and sleeplessness.  That skirt is perfect for you!

    I love the shape of this skirt. Hope you get some rest (and some cooler temps) soon! 

  • Ingunn replied 5 years ago

    Beautiful skirt, Deborah, and I also love the neckline of your top. You have styled this perfectly. I hope you will get some rest and cooler weather soon.
