Masculine Meets Feminine: A Bow Tie & A Girly Skirt

Just a quick scheduled post today - we're spending a weekend in Cornwall at a luxury hotel after I won a competition for a free night at The Llawnroc Hotel in Gorran Haven... I'm so excited! 

This is an outfit from a couple of weeks ago incorporating my bright chiffon shirt from Asos (sold out, sadly) and a big bow neck tie - it's a little hard to see as my hair covers most of it. I like the contrast of masculine and feminine as I am generally a wearer of trousers, but then a skirt feels like a bit of a 'day out' for my legs so it's a special treat for them ;)

Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!

  1. Very pretty blouse. And you do look good in skirts so your legs can have more days out.

  12. That top is soooo retro looking and I love it! I think the floppy bow tie is a nice touch. I will need to try that soon. :) Congrats on winning the competition! I saw a few of your photos on Twitter and it looks like fun! Hope you had a great weekend! <3

  14. I really like that blouse. It's a bold print but you paired it down with the neutrals.
