30 Skirts in 30 Days: #26 Paisley Blossoms

Good Wednesday afternoon to you! I had the longest, deepest sleep last night and with the lovely rain coming down through the morning, I feel quite creative today. Only problem is, I have so many half projects and so many new one that I want to start, that I find myself a bit lost. I decided to start here, just because my photo's are edited and ready to be posted.

Today's skirt is an old favourite which I cannot get rid of. Every time I  throw it out, I end up packing it back into my cupboard.   

 -maybe I should add a belt to this outfit to round it off, or take it in at the waist…I don't know. Something about this skirt has made me want to throw it out numerous times. What do you think? Should I keep it or chuck it?-

-I think the reason I've been holding on to it, could be because of the pretty pattern. Another paisley/floral mixture, only this time it looks like the offspring of the two. Paisley Flowers-

~This skirt is made of 97% Cotton and 3% Spandex, which makes it a bit stretchy yet it feels very stark. I found it at Mr. Price too long ago~

Have a good Wednesday!

30 Skirts in 30 Days: #25 Oh So Boho!

Hiya friends! Well, I just realised something about this year. It doesn't matter how hard I've tried to plan, organise or schedule, life just kinda took over everything this year! I  had such awesome things to share, my challenges, my projects, a Christmas Collection…I wanted to start my personalised advent calendar on the 1st of December….but nooooo! I was struck down hard! Last week, our neighbours decided to start picking on us. We are the quietest people in our complex! We keep to ourselves as much as we can, consider other people in everything we do and don't complain about every little thing… Except, now, after months of an open dustbin door right in front of our kitchen window and cockroaches coming in beneath our front door… we had to complain. And now we're paying for asking that the door be kept closed, as stated in the complex rules.

Then Yesterday I was knocked out with the worst migraine I've had in years…. but what can you do? There are far worst thing happening to other people as we speak! We just have to be thankful and go on with our lives. I just want to apologise for my posts not being as constant as I wanted them to be. Hopefully next year will be better.

So without further a due… here is Skirt #25! 

 -This is such a bold skirt that I sometimes feel intimidated by it, It almost feels like I have to be in a real gutsy mood to wear it. It is also very difficult to create an outfit around it. I found this lovely silk camisole at our local Hospice shop and it turns out these two items really like each other-

-this skirt is of pure cotton and can be a bit warm for our summer days as it has three layers. The print is a confusion of modern paisleys and floral patterns. It is finished off with a satin sash which makes it pair well with my silk cami. I found this skirt at Legit about 5 years ago, it's still new as I've only worn it a few times-

When I put this outfit together, I felt an instant Boho-vibe, I quite like the outcome! I've always admired  Gypsy attire and Hippy fashion, so this is my version of Boho-inspired fashion.

-Happy Monday-
