This skirt really reminds me of a beautiful and heavy set of curtains -- in a good way of course! This is the same skirt that I wore on my 100th post (here) and I think it has such a different personality when we aren't playing around in the golden fields. This look almost feels school-girl like to me and maybe even a little preppy. I suppose this blazer has the tendency to have that effect with most outfits, considering the carved gold buttons and the striped lining that shows when the sleeves are rolled. I actually bought this blazer from Aritzia a few years ago and they still carry it in there. I guess it's one of those items that has stayed in style :)
Looking at these photos is really reminding me that my tan has fast become old news. I miss that thing! I refuse to go to the tanning salon, so I will be gradually getting more and more ghostly as the months go (yes, I do become more pale that this!). This eliminates a whole colour palette from my wardrobe, but luckily black will always be my friend and tights will hide my pale legs!
