Wearing Blue & Silver, in Winter | Maxi Skirt and a Cobalt Coat.

Wearing Blue & Silver in Winter | Maxi Skirt and Cobalt Coat

This outfit is the perfect cosy, comfortable, cover-all.
If you haven't tried a maxi (or midi....or even a mini) with a sloppy jumper, give it a go!
It's super-comfortable, and very casual, but looks like you've made a bit of an effort to get dressed.

Mixing two shades of blue, with a generous dash of silver, makes a satisfyingly icey outfit.
Perfect for a winter's day.

This vintage wool coat is paper thin, but surprisingly cosy.
I am sure there is something different about vintage wool... the quality is better, the weave finer and it's WARM.
Vintage wool seems to be less bulky, and much more efficient at doing it's job.

This silver maxi skirt is comfortable and surprisingly warm too, due to its lining (and, a little help from my cream wool tights!)
My asymmetric jumper is a simple design, but adds an interesting detail.

Silver trainers kept the comfortable vibe going.
Long earrings and my bat brooch finished things off nicely.

  3. These colours are amazing together, and the silver bat brooch is so charming I could die. Fabulous as always; you really rock colour.

    Your post reminds me that I keep intending to 'winterise' a leopard maxi with a chunky black knit, but I'm missing the chunky black knit in my wardrobe!

    1. A leopard maxi sounds amazing!
      Maybe a red jumper would do the trick? :oD XXX

  5. You look just stunning in these shades of blue and silver. I love the way your trainers give a less serious more funkified feel to the outfit. The little crochet hat and charming pin are great!
