I Didn't Wear: Contrast Tuxedo Blazer and Sequinned Skirt

21 February 2012

I've begun saying my goodbyes before I head back to Korea in just a couple of days time. Today I said goodbye to my youngest brother who is away at university - I cried on the street in front of Selfridges, what a ninny!

Anyway, I currently have a mountain of stuff that somehow all needs packing. Thankfully I'm using the bedroom of the aforementioned brother as my packing room. Now...I should be packing as I'm sat here writing this, that or sleeping, but as they say, 'out of sight, out of mind'. I should also add that I'm pretty much the queen of procrastination sooooo...

...instead of doing anything I should be doing I thought I'd show you an outfit I put on to go out this weekend. It didn't make it out the door though because....
  1. It was bloody freezing outside.
  2. My mum said she wasn't sure about it.
You're probably  laughing at me for that last reason!

Although my mum is first to admit she's 'not up on fashion' I do always like to take her opinion and at least give myself time to consider it. After all, it's not often I have her around to ask either! So, I promptly changed into something that you've all seen before but which did however include tights. Much warmer :) 

On reflection though I think I still quite like this outfit so I thought I'd show you lovely people and see what you think.



Unfortunately I couldn't fathom (in the short time I had - always running late for a night out) how on earth to get my feet in the photos without them looking weird! I paired the outfit with my suede cowboy-esque boots from this post a while back so you'll have to use your imagination. 

Mainly I just love the way the skirt twinkles and the dusty pink colour of it. I'm feeling like this outfit might be coming out to play when Spring weather hits! What do you think? Do you ask anyone's opinion on what you wear? Would you listen to your mum?

PS: As I mentioned, I'm getting ready to leave England and I'm kind of rushing around like a headless chicken. As I result I've barely had time to get on my computer (which seems to be breaking down on me as well) to reply to peoples comments. I'm really sorry! I am still reading them all though and I promise it's only temporary. If you've asked me a question I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible! :) x

  2. I actually love this outfit! I always ask my Mum (if she's around) for her opinion. Even though we have different tastes at times I do value what she says if I am unsure. Majority of the time though I wear what I want, regardless of anyone's input!

    I think it's normal to listen to what your mum is saying, but it is you who have to make the choice :)

  20. I think you look lovely!
    I know what you mean about the mum comment though- that always makes me question what i am wearing (even though my mum also has no clue about clothes!) x

  21. I love your outfit, it looks perfect for spring, or at least the warmer weather. and i do exactly the same thing, always go to mum when i put on the outfit and only wear it out if i get the approval. haha must be a girl thing :)

  26. I'm afraid I agree with your mum! I love the pieces and of course you're gorgeous, but the jacket and skirt, while lovely, do seem a little off together. But it's not that bad; I'd probably wear it hehe

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't love it but I like it. I love the details in the skirt & the color of it. I probably wouldn't pair it with the clutch although it's something that can be pulled off and you doll, are gorgeous! Has anyone ever told you that you have a blush of Blake Lively? xx

  34. I love the skirt, it's super pretty, and I really like the blazer too! I can relate to crying in public after having to say goodbye to family, I did that after the christmas period when I had to go back to work again.

    I sometimes listen to other people's opinions of my outfits, generally my boyfriend, even though I think he knows less than my mum! xx
