Tough Leather With Soft Florals

I've been wanting to put this outfit together for probably the best part of a year. Under all the layers there's a vintage summer dress I bought a few years ago on eBay - I think the only time it's been seen on the blog was in this post from 2011. I'm also wearing a slip and about three pairs of woolly tights underneath to try and keep the cold out. There's a reason why I don't wear skirts all that often in the winter...

If you're wondering where Part 2 of the Photo Tips Friday: Give Your Blog a DIY Design Makeover post has got to, it'll be up on the blog this Friday. I've had to do a bit of a shifty about with my schedule, as I've got something reeeeeeeeally exciting to share with you on Tuesday - something to do with a giveaway and a lot of money. I'll see you back here for that, then...?


Hope everyone is having a nice weekend :)

    p.s. I don't usually post something, but I think you might be pretty keen on winning one year of advertising that I'm giving away on www.ModaMamaBlog.com. I know you've entered such things before so I just didn't want you to miss the chance to win, especially since you already read ModaMama. Which thank you again for :)

  5. Catherine I love this combination! The subtle clash of prints, the ultra feminine skirt with the tough leather jacket and your amazing choice of shoes and bag, all has been styled impeccably! Really wonderful my dear :)

  17. Sartorial genius (as is your standard), Catherine! I love the contrast of masculine and femme with the play of the leather pieces against the sweet, delicate florals in the skirt. And the color of the scarf peeking out is so beautiful with your coloring!
