How are you all doing?
It's the last Monday of the month, so that means it's the latest installment from the Style not Age ladies. This month's challenge fell into the hands of Anna - Anna's Island Style, she's given us an easier option than some of our previous topics ....
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus
I'm sure most of us have floral's of some description hanging in our wardrobe's and I'm no exception. I had wanted to find a nice midi dress for the occasion, but didn't have to time to look and felt the striking Kalico skirt I'd already got would be up for the challenge, and guess what? It was! I wanted to keep a summery vibe with my Autumn Floral's outfit, so I teamed the pencil skirt with this off white shirt, adding in a near matching scarf. It's a perfect Autumnal outfit & I can switch it up to a warmer outfit with tights and a fitted tee shirt underneath.
I took along a long line cardigan, but didn't actually need it when we shot these photos as it was still rather mild. Jackets can work longevity into an outfit, and my Bonmarche orange biker jacket will work a treat over this too.
Are you a fan of white boots? I've had these for over a year now, and they've certainly proved an invaluable addition to my collection. They just 'go' with so much and are very comfortable too. I'm actually on the look-out for longer ivory boots, that will compliment skirts and dresses too. Do let me know if you see any my friends. x
Shall we see how Anna and the others have done? It seems I didn't get the memo that my friends got ... they've all gone for floral dresses and I feel somewhat left out! I should have tried harder to find that midi dress, we could have been a striking quartet don't you think?
Anna - Anna's Island Style has chosen well and already had this beauty up her sleeve, so for her it was an easy choice. These are the most stunning colours on you darling Anna. Do stop over to catch all the details on Anna's blog.
Hilda - Over the Hilda. Now another stylish dress for Autumn weather. I love the olive green jumper under the dress, wearing something this way will also gain more wears, and we all want value for our money don't we girls? Hop over to see more of Hilda's ensemble.
Our final look from Emma - Style Splash. She's also wearing a midi dress, one that she's had for ages, which proves buying classic styles really do last. Love the thick tights and and ankles boots, all topped off with that flattering black hat and feline bag - pure purrr-fection
Many thanks for stopping by today - hope we've all inspired you with our Floral prints - there's plenty in the shops so what are you waiting for. Do let me know in the comments what you have been buying, is it something floral my friends?
Photos care of Esther Ruby - thanks lovely. x
Catch up again next month.
Bye for now. X
