WIW: Summer Holiday

Hi Ladies,

We left for Melbourne this morning to return my mum home after her week long visit and to spend NYE with my best friend and her family. Packing was relatively simple. Packed black and white only:).

This was my my outfit today for travel (car) and dinner in the evening with my family.

Casual and comfy:). This is the midi skirt from Kmart that Caro and I both have in the wide black and white stripes. The black version is essentially the same but seems a little longer and is proving to be a great piece for summer.

Also featuring the lovely cross body bag my sister gave me for Christmas. I had shown her this one to give her an idea of what I was looking for (she did ask) and the sweetie actually got me "the one":). The brand is "Things Terrific" and they do a lovely but small range of bags, all lovely soft leather and are an Australian family owned company.

Thanks for looking and suggestions and thoughts always very valued.

    Your outfit looks easy breezy for travel and dinner. I am in love with your bag!

    Pretty draping and side ruching on the top. You look cool and comfy!

    I love the asymmetric look of the hem of your top, which seems to echo the asymmetric effect of your bag opening. You do indeed look very cool and breezy.

    My goodness, Deborah, your outfits always wow me. What a great bag from your sister, and how nice that it even has an Australian pedigree. It seems every bag I look at is made in China.

    Wow - you look stunning!  Love it!

    I love how the hem curves to reveal the narrow skirt. Great bag too of course!

    Perfect, cool travel outfit. Love the draping.

    Gorgeous. 11 out of 10. Just the right amount of structure in the skirt, shoes and "skin" to make the outfit flattering.

    I'm trying not to start thinking of summer shopping yet, but your outfit inspires me to put Complex Geometries-style t-shirts on my list. My summer outfits are always blah compared to fall and winter, but your summer outfits have plenty of edge.

    What an excellent holiday outfit, Deborah! I love the proportions and drape. What a great top. The crossbody bag is fab too, your sis really knows what suits you.

    Have a marvelous New Year's Eve with your friends!

    You do oversized and asymmetrical sooooo well ! I just love it. Have a great time.

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    Beautiful! Love the shape of the top.

  • Sharon replied 6 years ago

    I love this look! The proportions are perfect. Great bag, too.

    Wonderful draping, wonderful crossbody, wonderful sandals!

    Goes to show (me) the difference material can make. I tried a dress that had a similar cut, but the material was just wrong. Zero flow.

    Forgot to add how "90s this vibe is. Suits you. xo
